Ninja games

Does anyone know of a PC game where you play a ninja (apart from that silly N thing)?

tl;dr. But with all those shiny symbols and numbers it's probably awsome.

Oh, Bioware are planning on porting Jade Empire over to the PC http://jade.bioware.com/ Although it looks like it's more about general martial arts and an oriental theme rather than ninja's. I haven't played it on the xbox though so I'm not sure.

There are one or two ninja characters, but I wouldn't say it's a ninja game.
And you can't really play as one yourself.  It's still really awesome though, if a little short. ;)

One of the classes in U4eF is the Kensai.

Okay, it's a bit of a stretch, but c'mon. Unreal4Ever Fortress is basically the best mod written for any game, ever.

There are also the Thief games... but thos are still not Nnjas. Tenchu comes to mind, of course, but only for the consoles.

One of the classes you can play in Throne of Darkness is Ninja. My favorite class to. This Diablo clone is not that popular however and is getting a little old. Lot of cheating online.

I have Throne of Darkness, but my first impressions were not positive...does it get better after the first 2-3 hours of play?

Gets a little better when you get to use the more powerfull spell. I'm no big fan of Diablo or Diablo clones. I do not like mindless clicking excises that usually the biggest part of these game. Also if you beat the game you get to play the evil side.
