Summary: I found this game to be right up my alley. Everything about is was amazing: the art style, the story, how stealth worked, and the amount of abilities available to the player as you progressed.

bombstopper, Game Informer
21 December 2012
Summary: You are the silent shadow on the prowl. Kill the lights, distract the guards, kill one and terrorize the other. A simple approach found in other stealth genre games, however it surely is not the only one.
Summary: An excellent experience all around. Well polished with a clearly well laid out plan for its design and presentation. Replay value is impressive as well. For the price you just can't beat this. If you have any interest in stealth based gameplay dont miss this one.
Summary: • Mark of the Ninja is a 2D side-scrolling stealth game where you play a ninja grappling from lamp posts and hiding behind plant pots in an effort to either avoid people completely of sneak up behind them for a silent kill.
Summary: Mark of the Ninja is simply put an amazing game. Klei Entertainment has merged together some great mechanics and art style into a near perfect game. The environment sensitive movement is done quite well.
Summary: A fresh take on the 2d side scroller, an excellent stealth game and a very fun play. For what you're paying it's well worth it! The story is good yet I wish more was explained at the end, it could've lead to a better twist in my opinion!
Summary: Bar none, Mark of the Ninja is the golden standard of stealth gaming. It seamlessly integrates its concepts onto a 2D plane, creating an incredibly absorbing and tactical experience. Don't miss it.
Summary: Klei Entertainment's latest is a slice of genius, not only due to the sublimely intense gameplay, but also thanks to the brilliance of the implementation throughout. A lot of thought has clearly gone into the gameplay, and the concept is never sold-short - everything, and I mean everything, is...
Summary: One of the finest games out there on the Xbox marketplace, the cartoony art style mixed with the great story and stealth game play creates one of the coolest games i have played in quite a while.
