Tenchu Z

The Xbox 360-exclusive Tenchu Z is a stealth action video game developed by K2 LLC and published by Microsoft. Released in June 2007, Tenchu Z is the eight and current largest installment in the Tenchu franchise. This game features a total of 50 missions with varying difficulty modes and goals.

Unlike the previous Tenchu installments which incorporated fantasy elements in the storyline, Tenchu Z features a more realistic Feudal Japan setting. In the game, the player takes the role of a new member of the Azuma ninja clan that works for the country of Gohda. The player is assigned on numerous missions involving assassinations as well as item and prisoner recovery. There are also optional missions wherein the player must kill bandits and other crooks.

Gameplay

Tenchu Z, which has a multiplayer co-op in addition to a single player mode, offers players the ability to customize their ninja. Players can create their own character and edit the strength, agility, and health attributes. The extensive character editing system also allows the player to make use of gold acquired in missions to further customize and improve their character. Players can purchase new ninja suits, abilities, items and special attacks.

Although the game only offers one fighting style, the player can choose between a slower but stronger ninja or a faster but weaker ninja. Tenchu Z also features numerous skills that can be unlocked and upgraded.

To further heighten the need for stealth in each mission, the character’s footsteps and smells are now factors. Enemies are now alerted if the player’s ninja runs too close or runs through noisy surfaces such as water puddles. If a player goes through a cesspool, he may pick up the smell and risk being discovered more easily. In addition, lighting is now also a factor.

Multiplayer Mode

Through Xbox Live or a system link, up to four players can play in a co-op mode.
