    Ground breaking game in its day, great control, wonderful soundtrack and voice acting , Great level design and story just the simple concept of enemies that didn't re spawn out of no where and stayed dead added realism that games today seem to miss.Classic

    Nothing short of classic, Tenchu set the tone for stealth action games with rich atmosphere, insanely awesome ninja techniques, and simple, yet intricate gameplay that still holds up to this day. The music is also a staple in the game, much the same way Nobuo Uematsu's music is used in Final Fantasy. If you haven't played it, you're missin out.

  1. The simplicity of the controller functions, along with a decent soundtrack, combine to make a great game for a low price.
  2. A hard, gritty adventure that should be enough to hold off the "MGS" cravings until the domestic release.
  3. The game rivets you to your seat with challenging gameplay, a thought provoking storyline and non-stop suspense as you sneak your way through level after level of action and intriguing twists.
