Reviewed: Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven
Author: Michael Ahlf       Date: April 21st, 2004

Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

The Tenchu gameplay holds up well, though tagging the R-stick to both vertical and horizontal camera control would have been nice.

Graphics:

The graphics are about as superb as a port can get - and the upgraded models for characters are really, really nice. 

Sound and music:

Hasn't changed much from the last game.

AI and Difficulty:

Tenchu's AI isn't that bright, but the difficulty is hard - and having three maps of each level to play keeps the game fresh longer than one might think.

Controls and Interface:

After trying the controls back and forth on the PS2 and Xbox, I came to the conclusion that they're about the same - though two of my friends swear the old PS2 controls are better.

Overall:

If you own the original Wrath of Heaven and want to upgrade for Live play, it's worth it. If you never owned the original, it moves up to must-buy status.
