GamesRadar writes: "There's no Wii game quite as masculine as Tenchu: Shadow Assassins. Every character model is a statuesque brute, albeit carved from prime beef as opposed to stone. Every chest is coated with enough hair to craft 100 Brillo Pads. Even lady ninja Ayame comes stocked with horse thighs capable of snapping a neck. Tenchu is meaty. And Tenchu is governed by an equally meaty rulebook, free of confusing degrees of right and wrong. Enter the shadows and you are hidden. Get spotted and you will return to the beginning. The logic extends to your tools: shuriken will always snag a guard from his watchtower and the bamboo shoot will always extinguish flaming torches."
