Killing Me Stealthily, With His Sword...

scream4br..., Ciao
26 January 2009
  • Excerpt: "The technical troublings of Tenchu did not go unnoticed to its makers thus it was tweaked so that its release outside of Japan - to be titled, 'Tenchu: Stealth Assassins' - would be worth the wait. Tenchu took stealth gaming to new heights, literally - with the grappling hook you can reach for those rooftops. But beware falling into the pits of frustration. To avoid detection from the enemies, there's a stealth button for sneaking about, and along ...
  • Pros: Stealth kills are satisfying, top soundtrack, much fun to be had with items
  • Cons: Graphical glitches, camera struggles in combat, AI not well rounded

  • Excerpt: "Tenchu is a game that I would consider as a classic if only for being one of the first stealth games on the playstation. I have to own up now to not actually owning the game, so imagine my pleasure at having a lodger with some games I enjoy playing. Tenchu is definitely one of those games, since it was bought second hand it seems that I have played it more than he has so I thought I would write an opinion on it. A plus on the game being bought second ...
  • Pros: Fun and slightly addictive .  .  .

  • Excerpt: "To start with, Tenchu is now an old game probably 98 or 99. But it’s worth a mention due to the enormous amount of fun it is. Tenchu is a Ninja Simulation game where you’re stalking about trying to save the world from nasty people. You’d imagine that the game play would be pants, and be nothing like being a Ninja. But that’s where you’re wrong. You will soon find that sneaking around in shadows and jumping from ...
  • Pros: Best Ninja sim ever !  It ` s FUN !
  • Cons: Its not easy and the controls need to be learnt !

Sneak, creep, slash

18 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "...all of these questions then Tenchu: Stealth Assassins is definitely worth a look. And if you answered yes to question 3, don't admit it in public (it will only scare people). In this game you take control of one of too shadowy assassins, either Ayame, female ninja who fights with two swords, or Rikimaru, a traditional looking ninja with a great big sword (oo-er!). Once you have selected your character you have the option of doing a training ...
  • Pros: Great atmosphere, real tension

Tenchu - Stealth Assassins

atmity, Ciao
5 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "The second you pick up the games box and look at it, the more you realise this has potential to be a great game, noticeable when you see the forbidden "18" certificate, and believe me, this is a great game. You chose between two ninja's, and then you can delve into the action straight away, or have training. Training consists of trying to complete a course in a set time by using all the moves on the game you will use. This is alot of fun, and teaches ...
  • Pros: Almost all of the game !
  • Cons: On rare occassions control is slightly difficult

31 March 2001
  • Excerpt: "The Story - Tenchu places you into the shoes of either a 25 year old male ninja - Rikimaru (rigorously trained as a ninja since birth) or a 21 year old female ninja - Ayami (an orphan who has trained to be a ninja since childhood). In the middle of feudal Japan, you are given assassination assignments (10 in all) by Lord Gohda to eliminate the evil and the corrupt in your society (and because he thinks he’s up for the chop next). You must use ...

  • Excerpt: "Skill, cunning, stealth and wisdom is just a small selection of things you need for this game. First I will teach you how to use this (brain) then I will teach you how to use this (sword) incase you didnt know this is a quote from the historically incorrect but great film braveheart within itself it contains words of wisdom. So what has this got to do with the Tenchu well not much apart from the point the world is trying to make about this game ...

  • Excerpt: "I remember being given a free demo of this game and, before playing it, dismissing it as rubbish. One red hot and ready to explode Playstation later, me and my housemate were looking under the sofa for money to buy the full game. The game pre-dates Metal Gear Solid and is one of the first games to introduce the concept of stealth onto the Playstation. The game is split into ten missions and you can take control of a male or female ninja. The missions ...

If you think this is just a game, you are wrong

  • Excerpt: "TENCHU. This is a story that gets you so involved that it almost becomes your life (please note that this is only a second game I had ever played on Playstation and I did have a life prior to that). You get so involved that every time you go out, you do look out for potential attackers, you become cautious, you are incredibely alert. I suppose its main attraction is that you do not just have to go out and kill everything and everybody that moves. ...
  • Pros: Has everything the modern computer game can ask for
  • Cons: slow start up
