Aragami Is A Stealth Game That Lets Players Control The Shadows

Lince Works’ new stealth game Aragami is fun but ultimately too clunky of an experience. We slice and dice in this Kotaku Plays!

I really wanted to like Aragami, which is out now across all major platforms and operating systems. Stealth games are basically giant puzzle games and I’ve always loved hiding behind a corner only to lunge out at the last second and take down a baddie.

Even with cool teleporting powers, the stealth in Aragami is far too inconsistent and haphazard. Enemy patrol routes are unclear, controls unwieldy, and the game chugs to maintain a solid frame rate.

There’s the kernel of a good game here and if you stick with it, Aragami can provide some remarkably intense moments. It is fun for a while before fading back into the shadows.
