Mark of the Ninja Remastered (2012)

If you think that making a 2D stealth game like Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell does in 3D, think again. Klei Entertainment shows what Canadian talent is all about. They managed to design a game about being sneaky and discreet as a side scroller. In order to achieve that feat they actually crafted some excellent features. For example, the noise you make visually appears on screen via a circle around the character. The more noise you make the bigger the circle that might alert the enemies around. Speaking of which, we can see the distance that the opponents and lights can see thanks to a cone of vision displayed onscreen.

In order to go through the dozens of levels without too much trouble, our ninja warriors can count on his acrobatic abilities as well as his grappling hook. Furthermore to facilitate the progression and to immerse you even more, you can hide in the shadows and interact with various background objects such as carts or chandeliers. You’ll be able to surprise the enemies and perform sneak attacks.

Mark of the Ninja Remastered is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
