Summary: Well, I'm glad to play another Tenchu game, but it was different than the previous ones in terms of game play. Nearly every aspect of the game play I'm previously familiar with is non-existent in this title. The grabbing hook to get on rooftops quick, the simple combos, same stealh kill animations, and etc are all gone. The new Tenchu revolves much more around realism.
Summary: Tenchu is a strategical game almost like a puzzle game and this game requires patience. It was very enjoyable from beginning to end. It's all about staying in the shadows and not being seen. The graphics in my opinion is better than the PS2 iterations. The lighting, facial detail, and overall look is very sharp and lifelike.
Summary: UPDATE: Who has played Metal Gear Solid (PSX) and Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (PSP)? If you say no, I WILL CLUB YOU ON THE HEAD!!!!!(just joking :) ). Imagine Solid Snake or his friend the Cyber Ninja sent on an assassination mission. You have a ninja sword and other Ninjitsu weapons. Your main weapons are your sword, stealth, shadows, mind, silence, hands, and disappearing if you are caught. You cannot be seen at any time or it is you and the samuri or other enemy.
Summary: After Fatal Shadows being one of my favourite games I bought a Nintendo DS and Dark Shadows, after spending 30 minutes on Dark Shadows I was very disappointed, it is boring and rubbish, the format style isnt the same as the rest of the series. Anyway, I learnt about Time Of The Assasins, and exchanged my Nintendo DS for a PSP and bought TOFA. I was very happy to learn it carries on where fatal shadows left off, and was also very happy to be able to play as Rin again.
Summary: I loved this game, ive only ever bin on one tenchu game, and i loved that too, but it was slightly boring because it required to much time to be spent in the same level, whereas this one, being for the psp, makes use of the idea of portable gameing, something that most games for the psp dont do, and this makes the levels short and sweet and leaves you wanting more, there are some flaws, that many people cant get over, being the psp it doesnt have two analog sticks...
