North America Retail Box ArtCast as either the male Rikimaru or the female Ayame, you are a ninja assassin hired to right the wrongs of the land. To aid you in your missions, you have access to a whole arsenal of ninja tools, including a sword, flash grenades, smoke bombs, grappling hooks, poison pills, and throwing stars. Be assured you will need every resource to fight your way through the maze of houses, gardens, forests, and castles in ancient Japan. Your target must be eliminated at all costs, but the code of your honorable clan instructs you to harm no innocents. The wise ninja chooses his or her battles; stealth, deception, avoidance, and distraction are the tools of your trade. But sometimes combat with guards is unavoidable, and Tenchu offers the best of both third-person action games and two-person fighting games with an interface that allows for multiple forms of attack and defense. Be warned: the animation in this game is not for the faint of heart. Blood flows freely and realistic sound effects and movie cut scenes make no attempt to hide the brutality of the assassination business. Overall a great game for fans of Japanese animation or martial arts. --Allen Stewart Pros: Exciting martial arts moves Nonlinear levels--choose your own path to the target Different moves for Rikimaru and Ayame Use of many ninja weapons and tools Cons: Very gruesome violence Occasionally awkward camera angles Poor character voice-overs in cut scenes
