Not the best Tenchu, I have an idea though...
3 August 2010
Summary: I assume you have played the other tenchu games. While this lacks a lot of the features that made me love the original games of the series so much, it has some interesting moments and would be decent if the controls were not so bad. The psp, in my opinion, has horrible action game controls. It would play better if you switched the functionality of the d-bad and the analog stick in this game (too bad you can't do this in game).
Summary: First of all let me say that the original Tenchu was the first game to make me, not only a fan of stealth games, but a fan of the franchise and ninja emulators altogether. Everything just seemed so right about this PS one game that I would rather play this game only and nothing else. The best experience the original Tenchu had to offer was a grand scale sense of freedom and exploration. You were able to choose your own path due to its non-linear structure.
Summary: Another one of my favorite game franchises hits a new low. Frustrating camera angles, lackluster action and a disappointing multi-player. Might kill some time on a long journey, but you'll probably be counting the cows before the hour is through.
