This PSP entry in the series has you as ninjitsu masters Ayane and Rikumaru in an all-new storyline that takes place immediately following the events of Tenchu: Fatal Shadows. Each character is tied to a different story, and each story offers different levels to play through. In addition to the scenario mode, there is also a ‘free mission’ mode that’s comprised of 50 independent missions to enjoy after you have completed the single-player campaign.
As to the overall rating of the game itself, I would say 0. When I started playing it, it only lasted a few minutes. I was deeply discouraged that there is no map available, hence I find it a waste of time scouring through its environment and finding my way through. Without the help of a map, I just get plain tired playing the game.
The graphics are not that good. Even the CGI animation cutscenes are not very detailed. I played Tenchu before in some other platform and I would say that game was good. But in this PSP version, I stopped playing the moment I could not bring out the map so I would know where my character’s current location is.
A great game by Gameloft features great graphics, sounds and game play. Jerusalem, 1191 AD. The Third Crusade between the Crusaders and Saracens is tearing the Holy Land apart. You are Altaïr, a Master Assassin sent by the Order of the Assassins on a quest to find The Chalice, an object of such power that it can end the Crusades, depending on which camp owns it. Steal The Chalice from the Templars before someone offers them the right price for it.
Plunge into this direct prequel to the critically acclaimed game title, Assassin’s Creed, offering rich gameplay and a well-balanced mix of stealth, chaotic action, and riddle-solving exploration in the midst of fully 3D-rendered historical environments of the Crusade’s Middle East. You, as the assassin gets a chance to interrogate people, steal stuffs and kill like one. The character features a wide range of acrobatic moves and and combo attacks, mixing sword skills and kicks.
The game pretty much takes long to finish I guess. Even in easy mode, I have a hard time jumping from one long wooden pathway to another. The animation is good, stunning graphics! This game is a steal with all its features and game play that it has to offer.
