Watch us slice and dice our way through baddies in Shadow Tactics

Look, we don’t profess to be experts in Japanese history here at PCGamesN, but we’re pretty certain that the Edo period saw the dawning of a golden age in osteopathy. Why? All the squatting, crouching and stooping that must surely accompany life as a ninja. Jordan and a rather poorly Phil ponder this and more as they sneakily dispatch an army of henchmen in Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, a real-time tactical stealth ‘em up that has more than a little in common with the Commandos series.

Love sneaking about on rooftops? Check out the best stealth games on PC.

So settle in for another PCGamesN Let’s Play  classic as we die multiple times in the game’s tutorial, try to figure out whether Jordan just dreamt up that weird Snickers advert with Rowan Atkinson and, most importantly, throw rocks near people to make them turn around. It really is a very pretty game… you know, once you get past all the bloodshed.

If we know anything about how telecommunications work, you won’t contract any of Phil’s numerous ailments by watching. So no excuses. Of course if you enjoy this, there’s plenty more where that came from in our video vault, so don’t forget to subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube.

None. The only magic is the kind you get when Jordan 'stealth' Forward gets behind the controls.

Downloaded the Demo. (What year is it.meme) and gave it a go. The camera system is the main gripe and also PC controls a close second. They want you to use the mouse and the Arrow Keys for movement. Fine. But then they map Left Control as a button. Sloppy.

One for the sale pile I think. Great throwback though.
