when i first bought this game i was really exited
but later realized it isn't worth buying. the graphics are for the simple minded meaning they are absolutley terrible. when i first inserted it into my DS I had no idea how pathetic the sword strikes are. you can only attack one way and the enemy automatically dies! this disgusted me. But, i've gotta say that the weapons you can have were exellent.i would rate this a 6 out of 10.

all right keep in mind im grading the the single player mode. this game is mediocre the graphics are one level under ok, theres not much touch screen game play, its to simple, and the levels are all simeler(ex. forest levels all basically the same).the only good thing about this game is that there's a good variety of items

If you're a fan of the Tenchu games from PS1/PS2, stay faaaaar away from this game. The thrill of being a ninja and sneaking up on an enemy for a kill is COMPLETELY watered down on the DS to simply walking right up behind someone and just slashing your sword once, which results in a canned animation indicating a "stealth" kill. While storylines have never been Tenchu's strong point, at least the action was pretty good. Here, you don't even get good action. There's no "stalking your foe" like in the console games, which is what makes Tenchu so darn fun. This seems like a game that was rushed into production just to capitalize on the whole "whoa, the DS is a hot item now so let's try to make some money off of it." If you're looking for a ninja fix, you're not going to find it here.
