It has everything you need, Samurai, feudal lords, castles, ninja, hot babes, swords, hot babes; it's all there for the developer to take advantage of. The setting is perfect, which is why we have great games like Ninja Gaiden and the Tenchu series.
Tenchu: Shadow Assassins is the first Tenchu game for the Wii platform. The game was developed exclusively for the Wii which is usually a good sign that a game isn't just a lazy PS2 port. So does the developer's concentration on one platform along with the addition of motion controls and slightly upgraded graphics produce a stealth action game that is worth playing?"
