Mark Of The Ninja Klei Entertainment / Microsoft Game Studios 2012

This is a PC port of the acclaimed stealth game originally on XBLA from the makers of the Shank series. Hold your breath and slow your heart. You can't make a sound. You're a ninja. From the shadow of a deep doorway, you hear footsteps echoing in the alley, pacing back and forth. Out here the city is asleep, and there are few noises to cover you. Your hiding place keeps you safe, but it also blocks your view. The target is out here somewhere, but he's not alone. Aside from being quite adept at sneaking up on people and murdering them in a grotesque fashion, the game's unnamed ninja protagonist eventually learns how to freeze time, sense hidden dangers and teleport, but you can still get through the game the old fashioned way. The game rewards different playstyles with unique bonus costumes which grant extra abilities. You can get through the game without killing anyone but a few select targets. The enemies are just dumb enough to be predictable, but not so dumb as to be boring. It has a cardboard box. You can murder people while you're in the cardboard box.
