Steam sale soon, Jez... am sure you'd get it for at least 25% off, probably more.

Had a quick look on CDkeys.com, but couldn't see it listed.

Great game this is. Probably wouldn't have bought this at all if weren't for the demo in the first place. Demos sell games. More companies should go back to them.

Well completed the first mission (demo one again) and I really like the interplay between the characters using their differing abilities in shadow mode. The bit where you need to clear the area next to the main gate was brilliant. I was scratching my head for 10 mins just watching the guards going about their routine thinking how in hell am I going to do this without making a mess of it. I couldn't remember how id done it in the demo months ago. Glad I couldn't though because I came up with a much more finessed strategy this time round.

The graphics are simple but pleasing that cell shaded look to it is really nice.

Really love this. So frustrating at times but it's lots of fun when the plan comes together.

One question Sly. It says that Mugen (samurai dude) can crush enemies with big rocks. Now I can carry them around and such but I don't see a way of throwing them onto enemies. Any tips for this?

Can't remember exactly Jez, as it's been a while since I played, but from memory if he's holding it the cursor icon changes when you hover it over a target enemy.

However, the range is very short, so while there were situations where it seemed like a promising tactic, I don't believe I ever found it to be that useful a skill in practice.

Yeah I faffed with it for ages on one map last night couldn't seem to activate the mechanic for it. Nevermind they went to their deaths in other silent ways.
