Mark of the Ninja is something old and something new. The gorgeous, ultra-violent hand-drawn animations are what we’ve come to expect from the developers of Shank 1 and 2. But lurking in the shadows to slit an anxious guard’s jugular and writing as sharp as anything this side of Guybrush Threepwood-style insult swordfighting (by founding Kill Screen editor Chris Dahlen) are a nice change of pace. Featuring a track by the prog-doom act Yamantaka//Sonic Titan, and a ninja system that lets you develop your own Wu-Tang style, Mark of the Ninja is an easy rec.
