  1. There are a few weaknesses with the collision detection, but on the whole "Tenchu 2" is gripping, sleek and cool.
  2. 100
    A solid stealth ninja game that is a pleasure to play.
  3. If you get into this one, it give you that same feeling you had from watching the cheesy 80's Ninja movies all over again, except for the embarrassing dubbing.
  4. 91
    Even with noticeable problems, "Tenchu II" is a rich ninja experience worth its weight in gold.

    Aside from the exceptional Metal Gear Solid Tenchu 2 was probably the best stealth based game available on the PSone. At times it could be frustrating, particularly when fiddly controls or camera problems resulted in failure, but when it all came together it was extremely satisfying. Playing in 2013 the these problems are harder to overlook of course so you’d likely be better finding a more modern title, such as Mark of the Ninja, if you’re looking for something in this style.

    Tenchu 2 is a fun stealth game with a cheesy but at least enterntaining story and good stealth gameplay. However graphics are poor. But still its worth a reccomendation. Full Review »
