Summary: I've played a preview demo of Tenchu, and the graphics are amazing. It is truely jaw-dropping how good the introductory forest looks as your are running through it. However there is a major flaw that could effect whether this game is a classic, or a major disappointment, the control is horrible, its...
It tries to be good but in the end it just can't do it

Summary: Tenchu 1 and 2 are among my favorite games of all time. The strategy involved in sneaking around is great. I really enjoyed the first two but tenchu 3 just doesn't stand out like the other two did. Now let me be honest, this isn't a bad game. It just didn't do what a sequel should do.
Summary: I played a preview demo of the first level in tenchu and the graphics are amazing. It opens up and you are in a lush forest that looks completely realistic. Then you do a head-first dive off a massive waterfall. This unfortunately is were it gets bad.
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.
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.
Exercise in frustration - dont even compare to Splinter Cell

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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
