    Where is the Internet WI-FI and touch screen controls?<br /> Is this a Gameboy Advance game?

    I like my DS games to make good use of the touch screen. This doesn't. It just shows your map and your items. You can use the touch screen to select your item, BUT THAT’S IT! If you can play multiplayer on a LOCAL WI-... Read Full Review

    nothing can save this from tankeing.

    Who thought bringing this back on the ds was a good idea. The first stealth game to hit the ds is a mess in every way. It looks ugely, its blockey, muddey, and every one looks blockey. You get two chariters to chose from... Read Full Review

    Slightly more entertaining than eating a bucket of rocks.

    Overall this game is pretty lame. Gameplay: Two good things: The actual ninja fighting is kinda nifty--setting traps, and sneaking up on people. Being able to make your own ninja gear is kinda fun too. But still... i... Read Full Review

    This DS port from a fine game series blows spit-wads, not poison darts!!!

    I think I will make this short, and to the point. This game sucks no-two-ways-about-it. On purchasing the game one immediately finds the game to be all about the title screen and no action or substance behind it. Qui... Read Full Review

    Why did I buy this!

    Repetitive,tedious, poorly exectued. Tenchu is an example of everything that's wrong with game development. What was an okay game on a phone is a terrible game on the DS if nothing's done to meet the capabilites of the... Read Full Review

    Tenchu's dark secret should have stayed a secret.

    This is one of those games that really only serve as to make a quick buck from unsuspecting consumer. Bring the only popular stealth ninja series on a technologically challenged format. The result, well no surprise here,... Read Full Review

    15 minutes I'll never get back.

    Just a horrible game. Everything from the grainy crappy graphics to the barely salvagable gameplay. This game doesn't do any justice to a once great series. It's a shame this game leaves a terrible black mark on a respec... Read Full Review
