Invisible Fun

I’m not found of turn-based games, but this one I’ve tried just for the sake of it being made by Klei. At the end of 4 or 5 days I’ve played it straight forward. The story is pretty simple but it is so well voiced and picturized, just like Mark Of The Ninja – the game that made me like Klei a lot.

So, if I haven’t got all the other “stationary” games waiting to be played, I would replay this one, for sure.

Also, I played it on my 4th gen Core I3 Intel HD 4400 hooked up on a Full HD monitor (game running at 1080), smooth at all times. This is so nice, because even with all AAA titles showing up, a very very nice game like this being able to run on integrated graphics is something I enjoy.

After the game is finished for the first time, it opens a new game+ mode with more options, agents, customizations and such.

Well, stealth + strategy + colorfull things + character and team building = hellyeah, bravo!

The marked one

Mark of the ninja has now a special place within me. This game showed me that video-games don’t need extreme graphics, high tech environments, super real details. A simple 2d world with well thought mechanics, a OK story, nice artwork and bam! A high enjoyable game.

It made me remind of the old school games from the 8bit and 16bit generations. Like Sonic, Mario and a hell lot of others.

The game even made me enjoy a new (for me) style of game, the stealth one. Not everything is about going on forward and slash everyone. No more “kill!kill!kill!kill!kill!”. It was different for me. I’ve playing survival games, Silent Hill series for example, and I think they helped a lot to enjoy this less-action oriented style of game. I’ll talk about Silent Hill later.

I’ve not finished the game yet, but it’s cool, so fun to play it that I felt I needed to write about it.

The sounds, oh the sounds. Steps, rain, thunder, foe’s voices, the kills. They are so well made that I really felt being there, even it’s a 2d world. The ambiance is perfect, the gameplay and the movements make you fell like a real ninja!

MOTN made me not want to kill by just slicing the foes right way. Now I want grab them and hang so the other can be terrorized, I want to sneak in airs ducts and kill from behind, I want to drop the chandelier and make it seems like an accident. Bravo to this game. Bravo to the devs, bravo to Klei Entertainment.

Once I finished the game I’ll write a little more (or not).
