Live By Honour, Kill By Stealth

DBZKing, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "...stealth assassin game, know as Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven. This is a bit like Metal Gear Solid some of you may think, but it is set in feudal times, and you are assassins trying to gain honour / revenge and kill all of your foes. Game ***** This is the first Tenchu game that is on the Playstation 2. The aim of the game is to kill as many as you can without being detected. There are a few modes you can do, there is the Story Mode, Versus Mode, Co-Op ...
  • Pros: Stealth  |  Cool Assassins  |  Enviroments  |  Story  |  Versus Mode  |  Co - Op Mode
  • Cons: Graphics could of been better  |  More playable characters

plenty of action - not enough stealth

Evan Tsai, Amazon

  • Summary: These days the term "stealth action" is used so often around the gaming industry its ever-broaden definition ranges from titles like MGS franchise to Splinter Cell to Hitman to many other less-known imitators. To many the notion of out-smart your foes is much more rewarding than blasting them into pieces.

  • Summary: This game is great but it fails to acomplish its goal to be the best of the series. I hope Tenchu 4 will improve in all its aspects. Here are the pros and cons for the game. Pros: -Awsome graphics. -New stealth kills. -New hidden player. -New moves. -Bonus stage -Creative new bosses. -Co-op mode. -Realisticly bloody and violent. -New hidden outfits Cons: -Some of the old stealth kills are gone!!! -Can't drag and hide bodies anymore. Someones bound to see them.

3 and 1/2 stars. New Console, same gameplay

Robb Boutros, Amazon

  • Summary: Tenchu was one of those games that really WOW'ED! alot of people on the Playstation one. It's protagonist, a 16th Century Azuma ninja Rikimaru, is probably one of the more memorable and emulated characters in the more recent video game landscape. Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven brings Rikimaru and his female counterpart Ayame to the Playstation 2 with a considerable upgrade in graphics, but with pretty much the same basic design and gameplay.

Exercise in frustration - dont even compare to Splinter Cell

Kenneth, Amazon

  • Summary: I can't believe I fell for the "kinda like Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid"... no way. The only thing similar about this game to the other ones is the stealth factor. The camera panning is the worst I've seen in games it's sad. Although the stealth kills make it fun, it ends there. The camera is so unruly that once you set it to where you want it, it automatically changes because it makes it more difficult to execute a kill if you can barely see your enemy.

Very good! but NOT better than the second one.

  • Summary: This game is a good sequel to the Tenchu serie but I tought it would be better than the second one, IT ROCKS but there were some things that kept me unsatisfied. Good things: * Very cool graphics(At last the characters have fingers). * The stealth system is MUCH better. * Optional english and japanese languages. * Cool versus mode. * More and awesome combos, moves, items and techniques.

Tenchu! Could be so much better!!

Mr. N. G. Marshall "Gamer", amazon.co.uk
28 March 2003
  • Summary: This game is brilliant for those out there who just want a run around and slash type game. But for the real players who want the stealth side of the game will be dissapointed. The game lacks certain features which you would expect in this type of game, such as a sound-o-meter so you have to sneak up on unsuspecting enemies, or even a light reading to tell you if your enemies can see you or not.

Fun for about a day

22 March 2003
  • Summary: The game started really cool, I had to adjust to going in stealthy and try not to be seen but once I had that down I started going through the game pretty quick. Stealth kills is basically the games main feature past that it has nothing. The NPC's in this game are stupid than normal but if they weren't the game would be incredibly hard.

What the hell happened?!

Mr. R. Sykes "R3bb", amazon.co.uk
11 March 2003
  • Summary: I was really looking forward to this game, being a huge fan of Tenchu 2 and a bigger fan of the first one. It's been a long time to come out and should be fantastic on the PS2. Sadly it's not. It's no better than Tenchu 2, the camera angles can be nightmarish and the easy fighting system of the first two has turned very fiddly.
