Does It Launch

  • Works OOTB unlike the non-remastered version.

Performance @ 1080

  • It maintains a solid 60 except when it don’t.
  • Sometimes depending on the hour of the day and what shoes you are wearing it will nosedive into the 40’s every 10 seconds or so making it unplayable.
  • This can be resolved by restarting the game… a few times.


  • Dark and flashy.


  • Steam controlla no issues.


Does It Launch

  • yessereeboberooniemajigger

Performance @ 1080

  • Runs smoothly @ UHD #Wintel


  • The animated cutscenes give me newgrounds flashbacks. Not that that’s a bad thing, I just haven’t seen that sort of animation in a good long while


  • Works OOTB with the ps4 controller. Still getting xbox prompts


Does It Launch

  • It does start right up

Performance @ 1080

  • Oh yes, when the performance tanks it tanks like the Panzer VIII
  • It’s jarring to see.


  • Graphics look crisp and even when your character is hiding you can still see it
  • Which I guess is where the focus of this particular remaster went into.


  • Yes, the Quick Time Events are still just as responsive as they were last time but more on that later.

QA Score:


Fun section:


  • Venn:
    • Like HitMan this game has a little thing I like to call the nope cascade.
    • One little mistake can trigger a tsunami of guards and that’s that.
    • It’s repetitive as hell and that really sinks in around the two hour oh hi Mark of the ninja.
    • Press X to stab respects is hella annoying and adds nothing to the game.
    • When you are not doing that it’s hurry up and wait.
    • It does provide you with a bag-o-tricks to overcome situations designed for said bag-o-tricks.
    • When this game first arrived on Linux is was busted with the always run mechanic taped down.
    • Even after that was sorted it was nothing exceptional but OMG NEW GAME ON LINUX!11! allowed me to overlook a lot of shortcoming.
    • In 2018 we have a gang of games and more incoming so revisiting this is not a good idea.
    • Even with a new coat of HD it’s still… boring.
    • How, fkn, evar.
    • If you have been waiting for a remaster of bitch ninja Mc. bag-o-tricks and have the original pick this up for $4.99 and kill two hours.
  • Jordan
    • I’m with pedro, I’m not that big a fan of the QTE assasturbations
    • Aragami had it right, position yourself and press a button
    • The sneaking gameplay is pretty good, although sometimes you get screwed by the context sensitive menus
    • Sometimes though, the best option seems to be to cheese the fuck out of the enemies and make a mad dash to the next checkpoint
    • I guess I’m not very good at this game. It requires a sort of patience I really don’t have
    • Nice touch, you no longer run by default
    • Everything looks nice in UHD, so If you enjoyed the original one, want some new side missions and some crisper art, it’s not the worst 5 bucks you could spend
  • Pedro
    • I suppose I shouldn’t have expected much since it’s just a remaster rather than a remake.
    • But I still hate the QTE stealth kills.
    • And just how annoying it is, the moment you’re spotted, ninja dude forgets he has a sword until the enemy is knocked down.
    • Also, and I mentioned this last time, you get rewarded for not killing guards or raising the alarm.
    • But all you can do with those rewards is to buy more skills for your character to make the game easier.
    • If you’re already good enough to get through the levels without those skills, why would you want to buy them?
    • Klei does good games.
    • Shank is fucking awesome! Shank 2 is just more of that fucking awesomeness! Don’t Starve is great if you enjoy that kind of game.
    • Of all the games they decide to remaster this one… I don’t get it.
