Summary: I'll start by saying that this game is still decent for what it was, but do not expect anything spectacular getting this game. You still feel like you're playing Tenchu, but this game compared to all the other games was the weakest of all the games in the series. Both Ayame and Rikimaru could only attack once in each succession, so avoid head-on combat if at all possible(which sometimes can be challenging to do). You don't have your grappling hook in this game.
Summary: This game is pure diarrhea. Don't buy it at any price higher than $.50, because even fifty cents is paying too much. The 'landscapes' all LOOK THE SAME. The voice acting is so bad it's funny. The plot's okay, but it's the best thing in the game. This game is VERY easy to beat and people can usually beat it in an hour. Even if you're looking for an easy win, this game is just so pathetic it's not even worth it.
Summary: Not quite the TENCHU you're probably used to, TENCHU DS is more like playing METAL GEAR SOLID set in feudal Japan. The graphics, though fairly 3-D, aren't the best, though they get the job done, and the enemy AI lacks some intelligence. The play control, however, is rather smooth, and though some of the boards are repetitive, there's a level of replayability that's somewhat satisfying.
Summary: A while back upon reviewing the DS Lite, I stated that for every few great games made for the DS, there were equally bad games made as well that should be avoided at all costs, and this is one of them. You may remember Tenchu as a stealth/ninja game originally released for the PS1 years ago upon the "stealth in games" fad that hit after Metal Gear Solid came to American shores.
Summary: Rikimaru and Ayame, mainstay ninjas for Lord Gohda, return in another Tenchu adventure. This time, they're tasked to rescue a princess who has escaped from the clutches of her evil husband. They soon found themselves trapped in a village surrounded by enemies who're after the girl. To get out of the situation, the ninjas will have to rebuild the village by performing over 30 missions in and around the village.
Excerpt: Tenchu Dark secret is a game were you take on the role of a ninja (Rikimaru or Ayame) and the ultimate goal in each mission is to get from one side of the level to another or locate a boss hidden throughout the level and whilst doing this you have to eliminate a number of enemies. More points are given for eliminating the enemies silently and without alerting other guards and it also makes life easier as you won't find yourself circled by three guards with spears.
ruined on the ds. hope they release a ps3 version soon

Excerpt: Let me start off by saying... I am a huge fan of Tenchu. I've had every release on the playstation since the original around ten years ago. They're a fantastical original concept that focuses on a ninja clan, traditionally ayame and rikimaru, who have to stealthily assasinate whoever your master tells you to.
Conclusion: Don't get me wrong, I'm a big lover of tenchu, and when I heard it was going handheld, I whooped for joy at the top of my lungs (well I didn't, but you get the picture)...when i spent my hardearned cash on it, I was shocked to find out that it should not even dare to have the tenchu name stamped on it.
