Ghostrunner arrives with his proposal to fill a void that many of the current titles on the market are not able to fill, with frenetic gameplay, an incredible setting and a very colorful visual section recommended if you are lovers of this type of setting.

Incredibly tough but perfectly fair, Ghostrunner cuts the cybernetically enhanced mustard.

Since it’s not malicious we’re not minded to mark the game down just for being difficult, especially as the euphoria when you do get things right – especially a long chain of parkour moves that ends in a successful kill – is so wonderfully rewarding. It may be lower budget but Ghostrunner is a better game than Mirror’s Edge ever was, so if you’re frustrated at a certain other cyberpunk game’s delay then you should really consider this alternative – even if you might end up getting frustrated with it for a different reason.

There’s something extra special about hurtling through space from one wall or platform to the next in first person. Compared to a 2D platformer, the motion seems faster, the timing is tighter, and the penalty of missing a jump — that feeling of the ground rushing toward you as you fall — is way more intense. Ghostrunner is a perfect example of what happens when a developer works within the limitations of an underappreciated genre and pulls the absolute best from it.

Ghostrunner is a hard-charging parkour climb, but summiting its platforming challenges is a thrill worth fighting for.

And even though that world is a broken dystopian nightmare, Ghostrunner‘s gameplay is just the opposite. Slicing and sprinting through each dilapidated factory and string of sharply lit billboards is a rush because of how satisfying it is to control as well as how it, through its design, pushes players to play well enough to get the most out of its systems. A seasoned ninja strikes perfectly without any fatal faults; an apt summary of the gameplay loop and Ghostrunner as a whole.

As I played through the roughly eight-hour campaign this week I couldn't shake the feeling that I was playing the unholy union of Hotline Miami and Mirror's Edge that I didn't know I was missing in my life. Through all of the frustration and cursing at myself for screwing up something that I knew I should have gotten right, I was still having a blast and loving every minute of the game. Though the story is complete for me, I'll most assuredly be returning to this to see how well I can hone my cyberpunk ninja skills.
