If you’re looking for a way to shift those Monday blues here’s our recommendation: Come quittin’ time, toddle on home and drop 1200MS Points on Klei’s Mark of the Ninja!
Released on Friday (and developed by the folks that brought you both Shank
and Shank 2: Shank Harder
) this 2D side scroller has been heralded as one of the century’s greatest stealth games. With an 89 Metacritic score from 16 critics, Klei
seem to have finally found their stride.
Visually similar yet mechanically distinct, Mark of the Ninja
allows for multiple play styles, numerous techniques and myriad, particularly brutal kills. And with a 6-8 hour campaign who are you to resist?
No-one, that’s who!
And yes, that’s an Ask A Ninja
quote up top. He’s very enlightening...
