Tenchu: Fatal Shadows

Playstation Illustrated
31 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Since its debut on the PlayStation, the Tenchu series has had problems keeping up with the pack. While it was one of the originators of the stealth-action genre, only the first game showed any real impact. Instead, the series has been trying to keep up with a slew of titles that have continually pushed the barrier. Tenchu: Fatal Shadows , the latest in the series, attempts to keep up with the competition, but still falls dangerously behind.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Tenchu: Fatal Shadows is a fairly decent game, but it was just as good about ten years ago when the first in the series came out. The main concept of a Ninja simulator is just too good an idea to be neglected; let us just hope that Tenchu has finally found a permanent dev team at which to suckle and grow up, and that the inevitable next-gen sequel can make up some of the ground the series has lost to other stealth games over the years.

Tenchu: Fatal Shadows

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: Here are some facts of life: money makes the world go round, girls ain’t nothing but trouble and ninjas are pretty damned cool. In the case of Tenchu: Fatal Shadows, two of these are true, as both main characters are ninjas (pretty damned cool) and they’re both girls (nothing but trouble). Yes, Rikimaru is gone, which is no surprise actually as he died several games ago, making his resurrection in Wrath of Heaven a bit of a stretch of the imagination anyway.

  • Excerpt: Så er ninja-tøsen Ayame tilbage i endnu en omgang stik-dolken-i-ryggen-på-manden-inden-han-opdager-dig skyggekriger ramasjang. Vi har taget et kig på seneste udspil i Tenchu serien – moderen til stealth genren. Tenchu : Fatal Shadows eller Tenchu : Kurenai som spillet også er kendt som, tager sit afsæt rent historiemæssigt et sted mellem Tenchu 2 og Tenchu : Wrath of Heaven. Igen er ninjatøsen Ayame på banen.

  • Conclusion: Malgré le capital sympathie énorme dont bénéficie la série auprès des joueurs, ce quatrième volet de la saga Tenchu ne parvient toujours pas à renouer avec le succès retentissant qu'elle connut il y a sept ans déjà. De trop nombreux défauts viennent ternir le plaisir de jeu, alors que pour la première fois, depuis Tenchu Stealth Assassins sur PSOne, un léger renouveau semblait pouvoir donner une seconde jeunesse à la série ...

  • Summary: Fatal Shadows divertirá a los fans acérrimos de Tenchu, pero para los demás supondrá un viaje retro a la anterior entrega, La Ira del Cielo.
