Tenchu: Shadow Assassins isn't a bad game by any stretch of the imagination. It gives gamers a unique experience that while not always successful, certainly gives its all. Once GamerVision stopped hoping the game would let them play their version of Tenchu, it actually ended up being a pretty entertaining game. Long-time Tenchu fans may be turned off by the new way in which they're asked to play, but newcomers will get to experience something different that might get them interested in stealth-action games. Anything that can get more people interested in Tenchu games can't be all that bad. Can it?
