  • 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 ...

  • 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 !

  • 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
  • Cons: Tricky in a face to face fight

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

The Sound of Silence

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: "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 ...
  • Pros: Great replay value .

  • 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

Use cunning and stealth

  • Excerpt: "This game was cheap at £10 second hand and so I thought why not. Since that moment, I haven't managed to figure out why it isn't more popular. Everyone goes on about Metal Gear Solid, but MGS doesn't hold a candle up to Tenchu! The game is basically a stealth game where you steer your character, either Rikimaru or Ayame, through the missions set out for you. These vary from making corrupt businessmen pay for their misdemeanors and rescuing hostages. To ...

11 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "Wow. The first well translated, (nearly) historically accurate, well animated and overall brilliant Ninja action game for any console/medium. The main characters in Tenchu are (yup, you guessed it) assassins. However, the point of the game is not to kill everything in sight - then it would just be a third-person Doom clone. Instead, you have to make your way silently across the rooftops and forests of feudal Japan, sneaking up on guards and systematically ...
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: could use more levels, although it is surprisingly replayable .
