    An impressive port, and a decent stealth game.

    Tenchu: Shadow Assassins for the PSP is actually a port of the Wii game. Now, you'd imagine all sorts of sacrifices for getting the game on the PSP, but the truth is that there are surprisingly few. It's still fun, chall... Read Full Review

    Tenchu 4 Review

    Tenchu 4 took feudal Japan and made it awesome cause ninjas are awesome. The main characters Rikimaru and Ayame both are great to play as but need some tuning just to give them the real ninja touch(of death). The levels ... Read Full Review

    An interesting new direction for the Tenchu franchise that doesn't quite deliver on everything it should.

    Even Naruto can teach these ninjas a thing or two.

    2009's here and that means a new year for games. Wii owners suffered through two tough quarters last years after the releases of Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit. The rest of the year spawned lackluster titles such as the "rem... Read Full Review

    It has some flaws... maybe too much flaws, but is still playable.

    Tenchu saga gains a new installement on PSP. Indeed this game is a porting from the original presented for the WII. Maybe to adapt the game concept to the Wii remote controller Tenchu: Shadow Assassins strays from the ... Read Full Review
