"Diamond in the rough..."
5 stars"

Francis pretty much said it all: “Disgustingly underrated”. I own all the “BIG” titles for 360, and there's only a select handful I keep coming back to for more. Tenchu Z is one of them. The Tenchu series are arguably the best stealth games out there. Granted the graphics aren't exactly great (I think because it was a hold-over from ps2), but good graphics alone do not a good game make. This game is addictive as hell, the controls are VERY smooth and precise, and once you get used to it, the straight out non-stealth combat's actually pretty fun. The only thing I don't like is that the levels are fairly repetetive, and the mediocre graphics like I said, but it's very easy to overlook this. In short, BUY THIS GAME!!! You won't regret it…

The Good:

  • Insanely addictive gameplay
  • Precise, intuitive controls
  • Complete character customization (A first for the Tenchu series)
  • A TON of fun abilities and items to pick and choose as you unlock them
  • Excellent music and atmosphere
  • Serial link multiplayer is engaging and often hilarious
  • A long campaign with many missions that'll keep you busy for weeks, to find that you want to play it all again as the opposite gender!

The Bad:

  • Mediocre graphics at best, no part of this game looks like it was meant for current-gen consoles
  • Somewhat repetitive levels. It has a bunch of maps that occasionaly repeat, but with different enemy locations and patrols depending on the mission and the difficulty level
  • Longish load times considering it's not a hardware-taxing powerhouse
  • (Balance issue): female ninja clothing unlockables aren't as cool or impressive as the male's
  • Online multiplayer has fairly severe latancy problems, sometimes almost unplayable. Stick to serial link

"Not up to original standards"
2 stars"

As the first review has said, this game is not as good as the originals. I personally think that Tenchu 2 on the ps1, graphics aside, is the best of the series. dont expect this to break any records.

"Repetitive but satisfying if you want to pull some bloody kills."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Awesome game that is WAY better than the first one. Items are pretty robust. Weapon and character customisation is very in depth as well. Easiest game I have played to get all the Gamerscore.
