  1. With a focus on trap deployment and confusing free-for-all multiplayer, this doesn't feel much like a Tenchu game at all.
  2. It’s easy to play and it’s challenging but with bland visuals, unimaginative design and a truly flawed multiplayer mode, the cons outweigh the pros.

    It grows repetitive far too fast, and a few uninspired multiplayer modes do little to extend the fun. [Holiday 2008, p.74]

    Those coming in clean to the series will wonder what the fuss is about, though -- and should probably wait for the next installment in the series instead.

    Trouble is, it all controls a little too crisply for our liking. [Issue#37, p.117]
  6. 47
    Tenchu: Shadow Assault feels disjointed and lacks focus. Neither dissimilar half works well alone and together they appear confused.
  7. Xbox World 360 Magazine UK

    An idea too small to sustain an entire game. [Jan 2009, p.104]
