8.5 is not a great score, Leif. Stop grading on a curve! It was a 10 dollar indie game. BTW, you get a 65 on your stealth kills. nub
Just picked it up for about 4 bucks on steam and while I would say a controller is absolutely required it's been a hell of a lot of fun. Highly recommended
Ok! The way this man talks about the game it looks like he was about to give the game a perfect 10 for the game score. This reviewers drives u crazy with their so called reviews. You have to come out and mention how exsacly you came out with 8.5 and he dind't. What he did do is tells you what a perfect and good game should be and play, the only team at the end he forgot to give the game the perfect score. Is just the score don't match the review he gave.
I just got it on sale too for 600MS points 2days ago through the Countdown to 2013 Daily Deal Day 4!!
Looks interesting... 2D is a little difficult for me to get into these days since I grew up on 2D games, which were awesome back in the day, but now? Not so sure...
one thing I don't get is that you make noise when running. I hear ninja shoes are silent even when running, and trained ninja can avoid making such noises. Ah, artistic licensing, what can you do.
As interesting and cool as it seem, it also appear like a game that requires patience and waiting for right opportunity to strike...
I have no patience at all... I'd rather just trigger the alarm and butcher everyone that shows up... but even if such thing is possible, it ruins the game-play creators intended to create.
So I think I'll pass... sadly
I think one of the most amazing feats with this game that reviewers seem not to mention, is how there are 3 separate skill trees to take. All leaving to varied types of gameplay.
I don't enjoy these midget sprites that require a 72" screen to play. Outland was the same way. Both look beautiful, but suck when it comes to eye strains and headaches!
Looking at this just makes me wish Acquire/K2/From software made a decent Tenchu game, once again. They just don't learn with their mistakes. Just look at Way of the Samurai 4. Always the same problem. Too clunky, and too repetitive. Hope they play this game and realize they suck at making games.
it looks like a very interesthing game, it might be worth to check it out and ...oh wait !? for Xbox only!? aaaaaugh :C ....
this really looks like 9.0 to me. wayyy better than that outland game. I will have to buy it and see for myself. Looks like so much fun.
in the review there's no mention of the great soundtrack & sound design in general...
and if you enjoyed playing oddworld abe's oddysee & exoddus back in the day, then definitely check out this game.
Mark of the Ninja 2 should definitely have 2 player co-op. It was the 1st thing that came to mind when I saw the female ninja running around with me. Here's to hoping. /fingers crossed
When I saw this at PAX East it made me want to buy an XBox 360 on the spot. It was like the original Ninja Gaiden with a stealth element and updated graphics. I still haven't forgiven Klei for deciding not to distribute this through Steam.
TAKE MY MONEY, DAMN IT!
@shanethewolf Is... that a bad thing?
@picho86 Sick of ads in general :/
@KinoDaKonqueror Depends, maybe it's the pc hearing those footsteps, after all, he is a ninja ;)
@IAMTYLERDURDEN I concur.
@Shinteikun Not that I care to much if you pass or not, but for others out there and yourself, there are other ways of playing the game, and both are equally rewarding.
@Shinteikun Learn to have some patience. Everything in life requires you do... even gaming.
@wiserat4 Are you just looking for attention? Nobody cares about your needs and desires? Are you a narcissist in need of lots of notice? The game requires a decent monitor with a decent resolution--if you can't afford that then just stfu!
TRUE! that game hurt the hell out of my eyes, i couldn't play more than 2 missions becasue my eyes would hurt to much!
@Lacrau My Skidrow team has made the game available for free on the PC as a torrent. Here's the two words that you need to Google:
BitTorrent and Mark of the Ninja!
Actually, that's five words that you need to google!
@Lacrau AGREE AGREE AGREE AGREE AGREE AGREE AGREE AGREE AGREE AGREE
@simon1812 Try searching for the terms Piratebay and Skidrow, dude. It's available for the PC.
@Navotex No, thanks.
Mark of the Ninja is so much better in every way conceivable that it would suffer. After playing it, Shank feels like a rough draft for Klei to test waters and make their *truly great* game.
@Dark_December If you liked Shank you go CRAZY with this one.
@The1stFishBone Kevin is just a homosexual who needs lots of attention.
@gamerlano You should get an Xbox......... ;)
@slidescroll With this said, this just tipped, for me, the balance of might get to must get.
@JJB03 just two words, "odd" and "world"
it s "will get " here :)
