This Game Is Really Cool It Plays Like Tenchu Great Story, Interesting Gameplay, And The Fact That You Can Add Your Own Music To The Game Is Another Plus. 10/10

I enjoy stealth-action and RPG titles but just couldn't get into this one.

This game is developed by Acquire the same one's who did the original Tenchu games beginning on the Playstation 1.

If you are familiar with Tenchu then this is basically what it is.

For those unfamiliar, its basically a 3rd person Ninja stealth game where the gameplay involves a lot of sneaking and stealth kills. This game also includes mixing components to create items to help you on your missions.

The game is laid out like this:
A mission screen is displayed where you can pick an assortment of side missions and a main mission. Most are categorized as Thievery, Robbery, Assassination, Obliteration, Kidnapping and so forth. Each mission is associated with a clan. Performing missions for a certain clan will gain you favor with that clan and diminish other clans in the process. The goal of the game is to play the main missions as well as supporting a clan (or clans) or your choice, doing side missions to further level up your character and farm items.

The game plays remarkably the same as all those old Tenchu games which can make it fun but it's hindered by one huge flaw: the controls.

The controls in the game in my opinion (and I'm a veteran gamer) require a lot of getting used to. Practice and playing the game frequently will definitely help but even then you will probably still be frustrated at the control system.

Moving and sneaking and performing stealth kills are not really the problem. The main problem is controlling the camera and melee combat (which you will be forced to do at some point). The camera is incredibly slow to turn and melee combat is only possible if you hold the left trigger down to lock onto an enemy otherwise you will constantly swing into thin air and it is very difficult turning the camera around on your own to face an attacker. So left trigger hold, moving with the left stick, trying to pull off attacks and move at the same time is very clumsy.

Thankfully enemies (and bosses) can be cheaply killed by throwing them\pushing them from a high ledge or over a cliff saving you the torment of melee combat.

Overall its an OKAY game that could have been much better if the controls were handled properly. As it is I can recommend it to Tenchu fans but nobody else.

A game most will immediately look at and call mediocre. In some ways I agree. The story is bad and there are some things that make absolutely no sense. Characters aren't very likable and the villains are pretty lame.

The stealth aspect is still there though. If you've played the first game on PS2 or any of the Tenchu games then you know what to expect. Sneak up on enemies in various ways and kill them. It works and it works pretty well. You're given (or you can create) all kinds of tools with which to aid you on missions which are admittedly very short.

There are a myriad of stealth kills, however, due to the fast paced nature of the game you'll be seeing the same one or two kill animations often. Others you tend to have to go out of your way to create specific scenarios to witness the other kills. Tools are a blessing and a curse. It's interesting enough to play around with them, but if you so choose, you can make the game a cakewalk by creating bombs that one shot everything.

There are also things from the first game that have been omitted in this one. There is no level editor for one thing. Neither in the form of a level editor mode nor the Garden you got in the first game. Also unlike the first game, you have no reason to try and manipulate the warlords to keep the ongoing power struggle to a stalemate. There is no hidden true ending based on how you deal with them. Instead, endings are based on choices you make at certain points during the story. These are incredibly finite and the endings themselves are lackluster at best. There are also maps that have been taken out. This wouldn't be an issue if there were new maps. Sadly there is only one. Some of the old levels do have some additions though.

The DLC itself is nothing to write home about either. In fact it throws the stealth aspect out the window and wants you to fight enemies head on that kill you in two or three hits. This wouldn't be nearly as bad as it is if the combat system wasn't so clunky.

Story related things aside, there is fun to be had in this game if you're a stealth fan. It doesn't try anything overly complex, the short missions seem to work for handheld purposes, and I personally love the art direction. There are a number of unlockables raging from several skins to recipes you can find to make new items. If you're willing to try everything this game has to offer, replayability is moderately high.

Awesome Ninja game, Ordered it when it was released.
Total time Playtime to Platinum: 62:32:11
Platinum Level: Moderate

I am a fan of the series and this was also developed by the original makers of Tenchu on the PS1.

If you like stealth this game is for you i mean the point of the game is to not het seen by any enemies while you kill them one by one... If you have problems with the ai pass it once then play it on deadly and you will definately be challenged... you can alchemize, buy/sell items, and upgrade abilities,you can also choose which missions you take and which daimyo you work for...
