Wow. This is like... a step backward

D. Budzik, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to like this game. When the original Tenchu: Stealth Assassins came out in 1998, it was a big step in gaming. For the first time since Metal Gear, players were actually encouraged (well, sort of) to be stealthy. Interesting note on Metal Gear: the only reason it was the first stealth action game is because the Famicom didn't have the memory to handle all the bullets and character sprites on the screen at the same time so they had to make it about sneaking...

In the life of a ninja

Michael Corona "Nemesis Legion", Amazon
20 August 2007
  • Summary: Tenchu Z - Circa 2007 GOOD: - Game has 50 missions and three different difficulty settings. - Create/customize your very own ninja with lots of costume options and props like a crow on your shoulder or an extra sword on your back, as well as change your hair style, gloves, boots, pants and top. - The customizing doesn't just stop at looks; this game has lots of unique and different moves as well as combos.

This series is going backwards in quality!

N. Bierman, Amazon
12 July 2007
  • Summary: First off, let me say that I've been a huge fan of this series since its inception. With that said, however, this might just be the game that convinced me to never buy another Tenchu game ever again. For beginners, not one piece of this game displays anything that couldn't be accomplished on the original Xbox. 50 missions? Yeah right. Try 12 maps rehashed over, and over, and over, and over again.

Tenchu Z: still don't really know what the Z stands for.

  • Excerpt: "...I fell in love with Tenchu and Tenchu 2. Tenchu 3: wrath of heaven was where it started to go down hill. I still hold Tenchu 2 with the highest of esteem, the game play, plot, music and graphics were excellent in their time. Tenchu Z however is possibly one of the worst games I've ever played through. Yes, i did finally play through it all. The game lets you create your own character. Or at least they give you a choice of hair styles, colours and ...

Tenchu Z

DoloresClaiborne, Ciao
7 September 2012
  • Excerpt: ...Amiamo il Giappone feudale e i ninja? Allora state alla larga da Tenchu Z! Nonostante l'ottima nomea della serie, infatti, questo episodio per Xbox 360 è decisamente sotto tono e deludente . Vestiamo i panni di un agilissimo killer che, muovendosi nell' ...

Eher ein Past-Gen-Titel

DenJuandeMarco, Ciao
14 May 2009
  • Summary: So langsam aber sicher wird es superdreist und obernervig: die Tenchu-Reihe bringt in doch relativ kurzen Abschnitten immer aufs Neue einen Teil raus, um Besitzer der aktuellen Konsolengeneration mehr oder weniger zu erfreuen, doch jedes Mal sieht es so aus, dass man sehr interessante Elemente entdeckt, die aber letztlich nie ganz ausgereizt werden und vor allem in Sachen Spieltechnik und Design mitunter entsetzlich ausschauen.
  • Pros: Letztlich locker zu packende Achievements, relativ saubere Steuerung, unterhaltsamer Multiplayer
  • Cons: Halbgare Story voll mit billigen Klischees, veraltete Landschaftsoptik, steife Animationen

  • Summary: Mouais mouais mouais! commençons par les defauts:graphisme digne du debut d'une ps2! jouabilité aproximative donc difficulté augmentée! et ennemis stupides! les points forts: l'ambiance,la possibilité de creer son perso et puis...rien! tenchu z n'est pas un mauvais jeu,loin de là,mais on a l'impression que c'est juste le jeu original avec un patch...dommage!
