Tenchu: Shadow Assassins
Pretty good game
I have never played any of the other Tenchu games. This is my first.......All i have to say is that this is a really good game. It's not anything like splinter cell but hey....what is??? I don't really know why this game is rated M. It has really good graphics for a psp game. Even for a ps2 game i think it meets me expectations. There are only like 4-5 different executions and that gets boring some times but it's fun how you sneek around and try not to be seen. You feel like you're actually a ninja. The game does get hard at times but i play it over and over and over until i finally beat it. Another flaw in the game is that if you're seen by anyone then you automatically loose. You have 2 chances though so if you're seen you can go right back to where you were. Once you get a sword then you can press the onscreen commands and fight someone. Sometimes even if i press it in the right direction it will count it wrong. kind of annoying sometimes. This is a really fun game. I think that you would enjoy it. If you like stealth games and would like to bring that to your PSP then i highly suggest that you get this game. You will be playing it until you beat it!!!
does not follow the series period..
i'm a huge fan of Tenchu, but i'm finding this game to be rather irritating...don't get me wrong it certainly is different. The thing is, your missing out on the original game...Had this game been created the way the previous versions were it would have been great! But to any fans loyal to stealth assasins, birth of the stealth assasins, wrath of heaven etc. this game will strongly dissapoint. the sword wielding mechanics are horrible. the Controls in genreal are irritating. it is extremely easy to be killed. does this game seem fun? it can be yes. Although it doesn't deserve the title of Tenchu at all. I would like for them to recreate original tenchu for the psp. i would rate this a one star as to compare to any of the other titles of similar names (Tench of course). but being a game that i would have normally tried, i would say probably a 2.
