  • Excerpt: Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven is the third incarnation of the stealth series and features the return of Lord Gohda’s assassins Rikimaru and Ayame. There is also the appearance of the thinly veiled third character (I mean, you can see him in the background of the character select screen as soon as you fire up the game, it doesn’t get more obvious than that).

  • Conclusion: You’re weapon and item selection is very comprehensive as well, providing all the useful tools a ninja could need with more becoming available as the game progresses. Players have access to smoke bombs, mines, and shuriken, among other offensive weapons, as well as a number of items to affect your character’s health from healing potions, to poison antidotes, to items that augment your strength. Players can also pick up weapons from fallen enemies to use.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven

Game Over Online
5 April 2004
  • Excerpt: In 1998, Activision released Tenchu: Stealth Assassins, a title which helped usher in the current covert action gaming craze and revolutionized the video game ninja in a number of ways. It introduced two heroes, the reserved Rikimaru and the effusive Ayame. Members of the honorable Azuma ninja clan, the shadowy duo performed a number of tasks, including assassinations on evil or corrupt men across the countryside.

  • Excerpt: At the beginning of a video game review I love to reminisce, I guess I’m showing my age, but I’ve always thought ninjas are cool. In the 80s ninjas were bought to the mass market by those God damned turtles, and also that dodgy TV series starring Lee Van Cleef, either way the western world has never looked back. Do you remember Enter the Ninja? What about American Ninja and it’s various sequels? No? Okay then, I guess its just me who watches bad Kung-Fu movies.

The best Tenchu game ever?

Web Wombat
13 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Plus it's got ninjas and a really, really funny card game gag. While it is not the next resurrection of Jubei Kepagami and Co, it is a solidly enjoyable 3rd person slasher with much going for it and just a couple of little faults that keep it from rising to the heights of perfection.

Reviews: Tenchu 3

Tiscali
6 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Tenchu 3 is most certainly not for kids. The sound effect enhance the gruesome, neck-snapping action, while a dark feel infuses the whole game. And while veteran players will have some advantages when playing, newcomers to the series shouldn't be put off. Tenchu 3 doesn't revolutionise the stealth genre, but instead refines it and nudges it a little forward. If the thought of being a sneaky, tooled-up ninja is appealing, then Tenchu 3 should fit the bill.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Lovers of the original Tenchu (and indeed the less-than-great sequel) will probably lap this game up. The game allows some truly cool stealth action (if you practice enough) and has some excellent music. It might be perfect for you if you prefer shuriken and katana to Solid Snake or Sam Fisher's hi-tech weapons.
  • Pros: Stealth kills are satisfying., Three characters to play through which means a sizeable game., Good music., The grappling hook is a brilliant tool.
  • Cons: Fiddly controls and a camera that likes to drop you in it., No mid-level saves and stupid boss battles., A few annoying platform sections., The grapple is still too tricky to use swiftly.
