what the hell, was that Tenchu? Me and Op was depating that it was the Okamotos 360 title. Ah well...about Tenchu (because this is the case) here is my thought on the demo.

Graphics - 7.5/10
Gameplay - 8/10'

The graphics do not bother me at all, and the gameplay plays like Ninja Splinter Cell game, which I love as hell. Besides that you can create your own ninja including gender its hell of alot better. The online I think would be awesome, for most assassinations by being a ninja. Long story short I am buying it when it comes out, I have liked Tenchu like always, its more tradional Ninja Gaiden if you see it in a way, but with a little bit downgraded graphics.
The only bads thing about the gameplay is that when you are in one on one combat situation its kind of not all that, samething with Splinter Cell. The whole Tenchu game is about stealth and assassination, which Splinter Cell is like that; without the assassinations.

I played the demo myself, and aside from the HD visuals, this game could easily be done on PS2. The gameplay is very dated and boring. But I must admit it's midly fun when you hop from a rooftop and slice the guard below in half, and blood explodes all over the place.

i downloaded the demo and the game just looks horrible.There is just no excuse to have a game that looks this bad on the 360.They put no effort into this game.It looks so bad you dont even want to play it.I hope they dont bring this game to the U.S.

YOur right my friend, they could of put way more effort into this game. But But But i'll get it just for the 4 player coop mode.. That just looks so much fun. Seriously

The graphics look like a "good" Xbox last gen game, with some polish here and there. Besides the new videos shows that the blood effect does not look smikey anymore, its more "splattered". Doesnt bother me, reminds me of some manga blood style, which is a very good thing.

I am buying it for 6 reasons

1. Its a Ninja Splinter Cell game with downgraded visuals in some parts

2. Create your own ninja from scratch.

4. Cool death blows, run on rooftops, stealth, very fun gameplay. (Yes I love graphics as the future titles, but this one is a exception of being a OKAY graphics for me. If the gameplay is very good, graphics is not whats gonna bother me.)

5. Online play (please no lags, no friend killing, and great lobby system)

6. Its a freaking Ninja game damn it!

Bonus reason: Ninja Gaiden stealth game in a traditional japanese envoirments with traditional ninjas.

I hope it's region free, I've never played a Tenchu game except the PSP version (which I though was bad cause I hated the controls), but this game was actually fun for me, I've played it many times trying to find out different ways to kill people.

Main reason I'm getting this is for the missions and the coop. Coop just made this game very appealing after the video.

I know there's a ton of things I'd love to say that are bad, but I'm gonna give it a try and hope there's a better game in the future.

ZeroEx - "I've never played a Tenchu game except the PSP version (which I though was bad cause I hated the controls)"

Maybe because the game on PSP is not good as a "console". You cant compare PSP Tenchu to a console Tenchu, but I know what you mean.

Years back when PS1 was all that my cousin got Tenchu Stealth Assassin, and we played it so much that it started to lag, almost. We entered a cheat to play co-op which was a great thing. After that when I got Xbox, I saw Wrath of Heaven, and I bought it and it was so great, and one of my other cousin came back and we played co-op missions while I was Rikimaru and he was either Tesshu or Ayame (Ayame is hot).

After that I have not played other Tenchu games. Now that Senran is coming, I really got the old feeling back of how it was being a ninja assassin and that patience of stealth killing drived me crazy for doing same stuff over and over.

The graphics are not next-gen in my opinion, but for any Tenchu lover who enjoyed the stealth killing, running on rooftops, zip your way up on roofs, use magic spells and do death blows above a enemy and being a ninja then this game is awesome; not for its graphics but for its gameplay.
Graphics are decent enough to say, "I am buying it because plays good", then you know you are a gamer.
The customization is what I am gonna be hanging out alot in. Gonna create my own fictional ninjathat I wish I looked as in real life ;), hehe.
There is only one thing that bothers me in the customization, that there are "back weapons" that you can choose, like Katana sword, bows, arrows...etc. I chose a Katana on my back, but in the cutscene meeting the boss, he draws his short Katana, which I hated it. I hope you can choose to take away the short Katana and go for the regular long one, it is so damn awesome.
The second one that I do not like is that all the pants are traditional "puffy" pants, but I think there might be some normal seized pants to, crossing my fingers.

You could dress up like Ryu Hayabusas blue ninja suit, or Hayate from DOA4, or Samanosuke in the Onimusha 3 Demon Seige CGI intro.
Cant wait for this to come out.

About the game

What's up?
  • HR2
    HR2 @droezelke: an even better choice would be Paul Rudd, he would be perfect (31 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @HR2: Chris Pratt would be just as good. :-) (32 minutes ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @droezelke: then I think we would be wrong to complain about this one, this is the only role he was born to play, if anything he should have adopted different acting methods for his other roles (33 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke I have the same issue with Chris Pratt. In Parcs and rec, I saw his character. But ever since, I can only see him as his character in parcs and rec. In Passengers, he almost succeeded. (52 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke I never see a character, I see Nathan. Good actors make me forget for a while who plays the character. Know what I'm trying to say? (54 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke When I see or hear him, I always think: that's Nathan and I keep seeing Nathan. He doesn't make me forget himself. (56 minutes ago)

    droezelke @HR2: Fillion might be a decent voice actor, but I don't consider him as a good actor. (58 minutes ago)
