The first Tenchu on Playstation is one of my all time favorite stealth games. I hear this new Vita title is very much in the same mold as Tenchu. Is this true? If so, is it more like the first Tenchu or the subsequent ones? I didn't care for the PS2 Tenchu games.

I wondered the same things as I am in the same boat. The reviews have been pretty bad though.

Is Tenchu Z the last game they made? I loved that game even though it definitely had issues. I'd like to play a new Tenchu.

The gameplay is similar to Tenchu in the sense that you are a stealth assassin. Acquire is the same people who started the Tenchu series. The big minus is in the graphics department. It looks more like psp game than a vita game. However, people who are fans of Tenchu, according to reading user reviews and forums, like the game style.

I am not sure if it plays like the former or latter games since I am not familiar with the lastest Tenchu games besides the PS1 games. My knowledge of the game is from reading and seeing a few videos the game.

Sounds cool, thanks!

Most definitely. Acquire made Shinobido because they split with From Software and didn't have the Tenchu IP. They'd later return to Tenchu with Shadow Assassins.

I mentioned this in the Recent Demo Rundown, but I just played this demo last night and loved it. It looks like an upgraded Tenchu Z and seems to have at least some kind of story element with 3 warring factions. The one demo mission was way too short - I was able to find and kill the target within a minute - but I really liked it.

Does anyone have some impressions of the full game? This is the only thread I was able to dig up with the game in the title.

With all the Vita talk lately I'm sure someone here has this game. Compare it to Tenchu Z perhaps? I think that's the only other one I played. Bump.

EDIT - Just read UziSpray's review. I think this might be one of the first retail Vita games that I buy - but I'll still wait a while.

Tenchu 1 was IMO the best tenchu, especially the JPN version with analog controls and OG JPN voice/text.
I've played every tenchu, 1 is the only one I finished multiple times.

Tenchu 1 was amazing but it was single player only which is very lame. Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven on the old-school xbox was clearly the best in the series, it was a great 1v1 split-screen fighting game that we wasted sooo many hours with.

I didn't like Wrath of Heaven at all. I'm with Sven...the original game was by far the best.
