  • Excerpt: "I played the first Tenchu game when I rented it from Blockbuster but I was too young to really appreciate it myself back then. But now that i'm older and wiser I finally got a chance to play the sequel. Yeah I was impressed by the improvements that they made to the original but the camera issues are still here and it often feels that have the battle with this game is working with it and not accidently be spotted by an enemy and ruining your stealth ...

  • Excerpt: "A great game in my opinion, I'm not the kind of guy that notices the quality of graphics so I don't really care that it's on the psx. The game is extremely exciting but simple if played right. You are a Ninja who seeks rervenge and honour both for your own family of ninjas and for innocent civilians. You attack at night but that's not a problem because it's reasonably easy to see, You can feel the chi around you allowing you to tell how far people ...
  • Pros: Fantastic atmosphere
  • Cons: requires lot's of patience

  • Excerpt: "Tenchu 2 is a great game, but only if you like anything with violence ( which you all most likely do) and fighting the old fashion way with swords, and being stealthy like metal gear solid, cutting of heads and other such moves. If you loved the first Tenchu then this again is the game for you. Its based on Tenchu 1 but is a in the past of it.(eg there are no guns) You can be one of two warrors (male or female) in your Japan Homeland many of the ...
  • Pros: Good story Long gameplay Fun Exciting
  • Cons: Graphics Unrealistic

Death from the shadows

  • Excerpt: "...exception. Tenchu 2, unlike most action adventure titles, is all about stealth and cunning over slash and stab. To this point it has to be said that breathing through a reed hidden underwater, before swimming under a bridge, climbing aboard a ship, slitting a guard’s throat with a quick flick of the wrist before depositing the lifeless corpse over the edge is immensely satisfying! There are three different characters in Tenchu 2, a large number ...
  • Pros: The stealth aspect makes a refreshing change to an action game .  The mission creator adds real longevety
  • Cons: The controls are quite clumsy, and the boss's can be too hard too soon .

  • Excerpt: "...very little advertising the original Tenchu insidiously crept into the room and stealthily jumped into the console and fought against me in a battle for supremacy, I lost. The game was hypnotic, fuelled by ninja lore and unerring truth the characters underwent progressive missions to stealth and conquer a variety of oppponents. The characters haven't changed, and luckily neither has the superb gameplay in the second installment. And as any good ...

Overated

  • Excerpt: "I think Tenchu 2 is to overated (age wise) it shouldn't be an over 18 game. Alright it's got blood and gore in it but everyone seen that (I hope). My Dad rented this game for me and didn't look twice at the rating. See now days films and games are to overated restricting younger viewers, but this is probably cutting down on the producers profit so we both lose out. Nearly all the games I rent are over 14 and I believe this is true for most people ...

Tenchu's biggest problems is its controls, if you are heard or seen your assailant may ...

Fantastic

  • Excerpt: "Tenchu 2 is by far one of the best character oriented games I have ever seen. Although story development could be seen as a bit too slow the game is still exciting as the plot thickens. Everything is thought out a little better then the first. The controls however have diminished. The view should been focusing ahead of the character but instead the view is focusing on the character and made it difficult to see ahead of you. Detail on dead bodies and ...
  • Pros: better than the first, better , more moves available
  • Cons: harder controls
