The overall graphics of the game are terrific. There are beautifully crafted backgrounds, and the main characters are very well designed to fit who they are. the guards look terrific and the other creatures ( animals) in the game look very good. Overall the graphics are some of the best I've seen in a game.Sound-
The in game sounds are terrific. From a simple slash to blood splashing on the ground, the sound is very good. The music is also top notch. Ignoring simple music like in Metal Gear Solid, Tenchu has actual singers and artists who played their instruments to make a stunning and excellent track that sounds like it was from a big budget motion picture. The only problem with the sound is that unlike Metal Gear Solid, the voice acting is down right HORRIBLE. It sounds like the actors and actresses were adults in first grade learning how to read. Sometimes you can even here the actors and actresses sound out big words that they don't know.
The gameplay is great and extremely simple. The only problem you may come upon is you might be against a wall and press a button and roll into site of another guard, but that rarely happens.
Overall, this game is excellent and deserves to be in everyone's room right now....if your parents allow you to have it because I warn you that their is an extreme amount of blood and violent content in this game. You may not want to buy it without asking your parents first.
The only reason this game didn't deserve a ten is because of some really horrible voice acting and a way too much blood to be realistic, but those reasons are ignorable and you will get on with your life. So buy Tenchu NOW
