This article makes me want to try the Tenchu Series.

Tenchu was a good series. It if you are going to try the original, hasn't aged well. I imported the JP version and still have it with the Ninja Scroll it came packed with :) I'm surprised we haven't seen a next gen version yet and maybe we never will.

It was an awesome game where you could go through the entire levels only killing the bosses. I remember the first time I used the grappling hook to escape to the roof tops and thought to myself, this is about to be one hell of an game.

Ayame and Rickimaru were badass ninjas back in the day. I miss them :'(

I thought Tenchu 2 was the best, used to spend hours on the level editor and making my friends play my levels with about a 100 hidden traps in them lol.

Same here haha. Tenchu is a freakin classic man.

What makes me respect Rikimaru is that even though he wasn't blessed withe the talent as Ayame and Tatsumaru is was his hard work that still made him rise to their level in skill and in some instances surpass it.

Rikimaru is as traditional as a classic shinobi can get.....

I loved them on the old playstations they were such fun titles. Trying to complete levels without being seen was awesome

I much would have preferred an Onimusha HD collection than DMC.
