So far this seems to be a love it or hate it game for reviewers. Im going to be your first real middle man! Tenchu delivers you a crap ton of missions and this is a definate plus to the original games 12 missions or so at most. The customization is beautifully executed and allows you to show emotion and personality in your character. This game lacks though in the Tenchu gaming department! Tenchu for the PS2 which I believe to this day is the best Tenchu game ive played! It gave you great speed to work with, intellgent AI that you could get dumbed down if your a newbie but most of all the level designs were unique and offered many different obsticles and traps. This also lacks a true hardcore multiplayer! Wheres the player vs. player while there are other enemies around you! That was the best thing about Tenchu! Don't buy this game at the current $60 price tag, wait about $30 before buying this, if you are a true Tenchu stealth killing fan like I am...rent it! You will be bored in about 3 hours! This game lacks in what Tenchu was made for and what Tenchu as while adding very functional and fun add-ons such as custom character. Overall, try it out with an online rental or go to your local blockbuster, holleywood games place or download the demo on 360 live. Wait about $30 to but this and then it will be worth it!
