Mark of the Ninja, a 2D stealth platformer and critical darling on XBLA, appeared on Steam today (opens in new tab) . I only wish the date hadn't been previously announced, so I could call it "Marketing of the Ninja." Oh well -- it's selling for $14.99/£11.99, and while our review is forthcoming, the Xbox 360 version has already been bombarded by love shurikens from the press. They sting, but in a good way.

Edge (opens in new tab) called it "slick and striking," Destructoid (opens in new tab) called it "the benchmark by which all stealth games are now measured," and Wired (opens in new tab) praised it for "brilliant level and puzzle design." So, people really like it.

Have a look at last month's launch trailer below:

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
