Killing Me Stealthily, With His Sword...

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: "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 ...

Slit throats like a pro

  • Excerpt: "Ninja stealth combined with some seriously gratuitous amounts of blood makes a damn fine game in the metal-gear-stylee. Take the role of a big ninja guy with a kitana blade, or be the demure ninja girl (ninjette?) brandishing daggers. Both work for Lord Goda and they have to take out his enemies by sneaking into their places and taking out their minions. If you do the game without any sneakiness then you get ranked a "thug" and you can't get any secret ...
  • Pros: Great idea, gory, sneaky, nice equipment
  • Cons: a bit rough, control system needs tweaking

  • Excerpt: "TENCH STEALTH ASSASSINS FOR THE PSX You are playing as ninja assassins set to serve for their leader. You can chose between rikimaru a leader of the azuma shinobi-ryu ninja sect and a young female ninja called ayame. these tasks and dirty deads the leader sets out for you are quite hardas you have to do it without being seen by anyone. this game is sort of gory but rated a 18 for that. at the start of every level you can chose weapons like the ...
  • Pros: fun going around waiting for the bad guy to turn around so you can cut his head off !  !  !  !  !  !
  • Cons: gets very frustrating as it is very hard not to get seen by anyone .

  • Excerpt: "My brother bought this game for just £1 off one of his friends. His friend hated it, but for £1 how could you lose out, so it was worth a try. After playing the game a bit, i realised it takes a lot more skill than just walking round and chopping up the enemies. You have to be cunning and stealthy, which makes the game a lot more exciting and different. The only thing I found annoying about this game is that the main game is much harder than ...
  • Pros: Action game with a twist
  • Cons: Quite Hard
