Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Tenchu for the Wii is a mixed blessing. The game gives adult players a stealth based challenge which is fairly rare on the Wii. On the other hand the game is really challenging, partly because it is intended to be hard, but partly because it has some of the most unforgiving controls I've been exposed to in a very long time. Not bad controls, just unforgiving. I would snarkily describe this game as Resident Ninja Solid: Manhunt Edition since it feels like it is incorporating elements from many older stealth based games with a huge dose of Resident Evil controls.

First off, Tenchu is a game where the player takes the role of two stealthy assassins who have to do a lot of dirty work for their mostly good-guy boss, Lord Goda. Save the princess, assassinate the bandit leader, and so-on. The entire game is based upon stealth and environmental problem solving. Combat is entirely based on quicktime events and motion controls, which works pretty well with a few exceptions.

NINJA-TASTIC STUFF:
+++ Graphically, this game looks good despite the fact that it only runs in 480i. In fact, it looks better than most other games on the Wii right now. Lighting and shadows are well done. Backgrounds are detailed and richly colored despite the fact that nearly 100% of game appears to be taking place at night.
+++ The 10 story missions and 20+ assignment-missions are solid with quality voice-acting, but mostly the story serves as nothing more than a convenient excuse to drop your ninja into a scenario to acquire equipment and kill people.
+++ A lot of the assignment missions are unlockables, leaving a fair amount of replay value, especially for perfectionists that want to get high scores.
+++ Well-done quick-time style combat.
+++ Lots of ninja gadgets.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The Wii does not have many adult games, so I was anticipating the release of Tenchu:SA. The Tenchu series has always been my favorite since the original on playstation. I have been a loyal fan owning every US release with my favorite being XBOX Tenchu:Return from Darkness.

Tenchu:SA has not lived up to my hopes and expectations. While it is not a bad game it improves the series in some areas but corupts others.

The graphics and sound are excellent along with cinema cut scenes to tell the story. Some new ideas such as blowing out candles, torches, and shaking the wii remote to slide from bush to bush work well. Hanging from the rafters to execute a stealth kill or usiung the enemies own sword for exectution is also exhilirating. Sneaking from gaurd to gaurd anticipating the stealth kill is still exciting. Other new ideas work but are lost in the ultimate problem that you do not have as much freedom and control as in previous Tenchu games. This version feels confined to almost a single path with hiding places or items specifically placed and required for you to use to advance past an enemey guard. It is also frustrating because if you are spotted, puff! You are transported back to the last check point. If you are equiped with a sword you can fight which is just as difficult and frustrating. I am over half way through the game and have only won a couple of sword fights. Oh, and you don't use your own sword to preform stealth kills, heck you can't even walk with it in hand, what is that? There is no grappling hook, crouching, rolling, double jumping, or other acrobatic ninja moves you would expect. The controls are slow and bulky feeling, I mean really, no manual crouch button?

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid tenchu title, much needed for hardcore crowd on wii February 16, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ive been waiting for this for so long and I just cant believe someone reviewed it after playing only 1 stage. You have to play the entire game to get the best of it. Anyways the series returns to its roots. The same developer(acquire) that made the first tenchu (stealth assassins) for ps1. In a simpler way of explaining it, its basically metal gear solid but ninjas in feudal japan (sorry no guns). You start as rikkimaru and at the halfway point switch to ayame. Though the game is pretty good in my opinion no game goes flawless.

The good:
+ The graphics are some of the best on the wii.
+ The setting is very accurate and beautiful.
+ Top notch voice acting. Liam O'brian (gaara's voice from naruto) totally fits rikkimaru.
+ The story actually is good this time around. I will not spoil it.
+ Very cool ways to assassinate enemies. Example: swimming and pulling a guard down into the water drowning them.
+ Classic controls make the game more user friendly.
+ Clever tool mechanics.
+ Just the fact that its a hardcore title on the Wii.

The Bad:
- During assassinations the camera is wonky and sometimes you wont be able to see your kill at a good angle.
- Dead bodies still move like crazy after being killed.
- Not much variety on the kills, there could have been more.
- When you do kill someone there is little to no blood at all. (good/bad? you decide)
- Setting someone on fire is just plain ugly.
- Gimmicky wii controls which is sometimes unresponsive.
- Sword play is really hard it requires you to react in a split second so its best avoided.

Minor flaws aside I think this game is a pretty solid hardcore title for the Wii.

This would be a great game if it wasn't so difficult. Some stages are really fun, but others a so difficult that you will want to give up right away and never play it again.
