Excerpt: When I first heard rumblings of a game featuring a pair of Ninja’s stalking ancient Japan, I was intrigued. When the first screenshots of Tenchu were released and the look resembled the (then) upcoming Metal Gear Solid, I began to get anxious. When it first hit the import stores, I rushed out and scooped it up. After playing it for hours, I could not get enough of this title.
Excerpt: Sad but true fact: the PlayStation is showing its age. It just can't keep up with Tenchu 2 's sweeping vistas. The first game took the easier way out, setting the game in the Land of Eternal Night and oftentimes inside buildings or enclosures. Tenchu 2 tries to go for the sweeping epic worlds, and as such, the graphical output of the bitty-box we know and love is definitely lacking the output the game needs. That's not to say Tenchu 2 doesn't look nice. It does.
Excerpt: Tenchu, a PlayStation game from Activision, moved as quietly as a ninja, sneaking onto store shelves and into gamers' homes. The resulting success was fantastic and unexpected, making Tenchu the sleeper hit of 1998.
