Right, I’ve given this a bit of play now. Some last night, some at lunch time today. I’ve been through the first level a few times and done some of the mini missions. It took me a while to get used to things – when you keep failing what’s effectively the tutorial level of a game you know there’s a problem – but I think I like it now. And, apart from one area with a pond and a load of guards, I can kill everyone in the game using stealth. I think I may have worked out a path through the pond area that will let me kill everyone, so I need to try that some time. I’d like to be able to get a decent ranking on that one before moving on – though my last ranking was “Elite Ninja”, which isn’t bad.

Anyway, it’s a proper ninja stealth game, with hiding in shadows and shuriken and dropping down off the rafters to break people’s necks. That sort of thing.

I can’t really recommend it yet, but it’s looking decent.
