Reviewed: Tenchu: Return From Darkness

A rare thing in video games these days is the update of a classic - a sort of "Director's Cut" setup. We've had a few gems (Super Mario All-Stars and Resident Evil: Directors' Cut / the Resident Evil remakes for Gamecube come to mind) but for the most part it's an unexplored genre.

Why is that? Mostly, it's cost - producing a director's cut of everything, if people know you're doing it in advance, can depress your original sales as people wait for the director's cut. Or, there's the possibility that they'll rebel, and just stick with the original, tanking sales of the Director's Cut.

Thankfully, Activision took the plunge, updating Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven and turning it into Tenchu: Return From Darkness. Updated moves, updated graphics for the Xbox, and updates to the game engine make it a pretty nice update, too.
