Tenchu Z is an incredibly weak game though. The graphics date from 2002, the A.I lacks the I and the whole game just doesn't seem to make sense.
Enemies won't spot you when you are walking in the open a mere 5 meters away from them. I ran aboard the ship once, ignoring all the guards. I was treated with a poor cutscene with some random other ninja dude suddenly appearing and talking some trash, challenging the emo looking ninja. But after the cutscene was over that guy just vanished in thin air. Wtf is up with that? Don't just come in, challenge the enemy and let me do your dirty work you lazy f***.
Not to mention the fact that all the guards came after me, ignoring the emo ninja (who just so happened to kill their boss in the cutscene but I guess they can forgive him for that...) completely and instead ganged up on me. So I ran up the stairs, resulting in a whole mob slashing and hacking the wall below me. None of them figured it would be a good idea to follow me up the stairs. Not even emo "ninja"
Yeeeeeaaaah. No. I won't be buying This game I won't.
Ninja gaiden is wtfpwn awesome though.
Yeah, I loved Tenchu Z for the sole fact that when I rented it, I just sat back and mindlessly killed people. Trying to get all the different deaths was awesome. Although there were a lot of problems. Getting Ninja 5 was wayyyy too easy, even on 3rd difficulty. The AI sucked, I can't think of how many times I killed a guy in front of his friend, picked up the body and walked away without getting an alarm, just a "huh whats that?" thing. And when I turned on blood in the options, it didn't look good at all.
It was fun to see how fast you could get through it without being spotted and such.
As for Ninja Gaiden, I love the game dearly. But dear lord, "normal" is ridiculously hard. It's so awesome that the AI is smart, but it sucks ass that they're so damned smart.
I still haven't beat the game, I was lucky to get past the fiend chick in the church.
