Pros: - Camera seems less annoying than before - Better motion capture - Better graphics - If you leave the arena during boss fights the boss will chase you through the whole village if necessary. That means you have to contend with the boss and any of his henchmen that you have not bothered to stealth killed earlier. - Enemies appear to be in general more "intelligent" and certainly much more motion capture work has been done. Enemies seem to scan both up and down rather than just side to side. - Choose your own custom Ninja look.
Cons: - Though graphics is better it is not entirely up to Xbox360 standard as in other games. - The boss isn't terribly intelligent. - A little clumsy to do a sideways strafe crawl.
Conclusion: Tenchu fans will very likely like this game. I enjoyed the demo and played through it a couple of times exploring the controls.
A couple of things the demo doesn't tell you:
- Forward jump is Left-Trigger + A rather than the traditional double-tap A. - Right-trigger + A + direction yields a number of useful flips. - Right stick click goes into target mode for things like grappling hooks. Then left shoulder to fire.
