    Tenchu z is a game that failed in it's series of Tenchu Stealth Assasins. Previous games were more intuitive then this.

    Plain black and white this game just didn't have that much time put into it. The developers should of used what they had from previous Tenchu stealth Assasin games. Such as, Map creator, Mission creat...

    The Tenchu series makes its appearance on the Xbox 360. It takes the series forward, but only by a few steps.

    The Tenchu Series was one of the first games to use the stealth element and do so well. The series has had its problems: camera issues and the fighting could be better, but every new entry has taken t...

    Why cant ninjas catch a break?

    Rated on May 09, 2008 by H-A-V-O-K

    I wish so much that i could just find one ninja game that was equal parts action and rpg, somthing like mass effect. What you get with tenchu is a decent but watered-down stealth action game. The only...

    I played the demo when it came out and I must say I was appalled. The graphics for this game are unexcusable. The animation is as cheap as it gets. Tenchu Z looks like an xbox game (really). The only ...

    I've been looking forward to playing as a &quot;realistic&quot; ninja for a while now....

    Tenchu Z just doesn't cut the mustard. First off lets talk about presentation. The graphics are dull. They just don't compare to other 360 titles. I would expect that if this was a port going to all c...
