    Huge downgrade from Tenchu 2. Many cool features were taken. Awesome human bosses were replaced with zombies, ghosts or characters with super powers and combo attacks in hack'n slash style. It had good multiplayer and fun gameplay, but it didn't have original Tenchu feeling so i can't give it higher score than this. This game was not made by the same people and it is noticeable after firstHuge downgrade from Tenchu 2. Many cool features were taken.

  1. Perhaps the most puzzling thing of all is what happens when an enemy gets really, really confused. Most commonly you'll see them walk into a wall or some other barrier.

    The ninja game the world has been waiting for. It fights with honor, but still handily slays the competition. [Apr 2003, p.80]
  3. Although its plot didn’t captivate me, its exciting gameplay did. Gameplay is covert, yet exciting and had my heart beating rapidly each time I crept up on an enemy for a stealth kill.
