    Tenchu may be one of the most forgiving stealth games but i'll never forgive it for getting me this addicted!

    Tenchu: Fatal Shadows is one of the games in the very good Tenchu series, Which is based in Fuedal Japan in the land of Lord Gohda. As you play through this game you will get too control two characters one a returning ch... Read Full Review

    Very Disappointing. Probably the worst console game in the series.

    I've been a Tenchu fan since I first played the original PS1 game. I've played Tenchu 2 and 3 as well, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. But man, is this game aggravating. When I first saw it, I was pleased to see that t... Read Full Review

    "A bad follow up"

    Tenchu:Fatal Shadows isn't quite what i expected it to be, it doesnt quite live up to it's predecessors. It was really fun to play at first, but it just got a hell lot boring for me. It got repetitive after a while and i... Read Full Review

    Tenchu: Fatal Shadows is a great game for hardcore Tenchu fans but not recommended to those new to the series

    I have always loved the Tenchu series and it is my 3rd favorite series after Silent Hill and Metroid but the series needs to advance in both control and camera usage. Tenchu: Fatal Shadows is a great game for hard... Read Full Review

    this game sucks

    This game is nothing great. It's not even as good as Wrath of Heaven and that wasn't even good. The gameplay sucks, the game is very slow, you'd think ninjas are faster. The graphics are horendous! My god this game looks... Read Full Review

    Faster Gratification

    So, I'm not quite in the "next-gen" yet. My family has a Wii, but I'm still mostly playing on one of the three last-gen consoles we own. Most recently, I've been hankering for some really cheesy, Japanese-themed adventur... Read Full Review

    Critics just don't understand this one. They didn't even play it. . .

    Good: Classic Tenchu gameplay we all love; the most replay you'll find on a stealth action game; stage based gameplay > continuous story; stealth in the feudal era of Japan is far more interesting than stealth in the ... Read Full Review

    Good, but same-o, same-o

    The very fact that you are interested in this game is normally an indication of your interests in things about ninjas, stealth kills and feudal Japan. And the good news is Tenchu:FS is a game that will feed that hunger. ... Read Full Review
