Summary: I have played all the Tenchu games since the first one came out on PS1 and while this game is certainly a step back from a few of the other titles on PS2 I still had some fun playing 1 player. Playing online was really bad however and I had a lot of games just drop out randomly.
Summary: I really had high hopes for this game and wanted to prove the other reviews wrong but in the end I have to agree with most of the other revies and say this game is just okay and probably not worth your dollar unless you're a person who loves to play a game with the same levels and the same bosses...
Summary: First of all, I am VERY critical when it comes to reviewing. This is a great game, BUT,... you must be patient, as a ninja would be. I suggest a lot of practice before starting, in the tutorial. That way it is much more fun, and rewarding while accomplishing missions.
Summary: I have played all the Tenchu games. The two shining moments of the franchise are when it was originally released (Tenchu Stealth Assassins) and when it first appeared on the PS2 (Tench Wrath of Heaven). Pros: - The graphics and motion capture are improved.
Summary: Lets get this out of the way, first. I am NOT a time-honored Tenchu fan. The only previous Tenchu I have played is Wrath of Heaven, and I didn't finish that. My first gripe proceeds thusly: The graphics were annoying.
Summary: It's pretty easy to see that this game was originally an xbob 1 game, that they shined up and ported over to the 360. The overall game itself is ok... But it could have been something great! If they had have did a graphical overhaul, made the A.I.
Summary: Let me get this out of the way: I was a big fan of the original Tenchu. In its day, it was one of the first games to emphasize stealth and strategy over button mashing combos. But now we have games like Splinter Cell that feature better graphics, AI, and still have that fun stealthy feel.
