Mark of the Ninja is an extremely enjoyable game that does everything well. I'll just rate the different aspects of the game out of 10 since there is very little to critique (except for the brief lag I experienced at the beginning of every level).
Voice acting: 7/10-- really liked the woman who voice acts your companion. Thought some of the voice acting for Azai and the guards was just ok. But overall the script and voices are pretty good.
Music: 9/10-- helps set the brilliant atmosphere.
I can't reccomend this game enough. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with my first playthrough of Mark of the Ninja. There is a lot of value here because the game is not super long but the levels are brilliant and there is a new game plus after where you can play the story again. The enemies will be harder but you get to keep the stuff you've unlocked. You'll definitely want to play again because (without giving any spoilers) there is a really tough choice at the end of the game. I am looking forward to unlocking more paths (each path gives different abilities) as I've only unlocked three of the 5 or 6 (not sure exactly how many) you can unlock. I am also genuinely interested in what happens if you pick the other option at the end of the game.
General opinion: Extremely fun, smooth, and engaging experience. Buy this ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!!!!!!!
Final rating: 9.5/10--♥♥♥♥ING BADASS
