I want to play this game so bad but it's just so hard. I gave up at like mission 4 or whatever where there was, iirc, a boss fight at the start and end and inbetween was a huge area of archers and dogs. I can only imagine it gets harder from there.

Sounds about right. It's a well known fact in the old days kids were sent to war and had to earn their living as soon as possible. Also younger girls are in their peak physical condition. It's why most Olympic gymnasts are 13-17. Makes sense for a ninja to be that young too since they do a lot of acrobatics.

Tenchu 2 was better in some aspects.
As in storyline(by a mile), ambient sounds, voice acting included map editor, and third playable character. Also less glitches.

Tenchu 1 had better innitial levels, music, and thats about it. Also enemies could climb.

Wouldn't say they were the best games. Lots of flaws. Best of it's kind? Maybe, considering Splinter Cell has no soul, and MGS having some other issues and being more of an action game. Succesors of tenchu were meh and burried the series. But not the best game. I can name 5 games that are better than Tenchu.

>> No.4265060

The only thing I agree on with you is the fact that the ambient sounds are better. It loses to Tenchu on everything else.

Music, visuals, character design, story, AI, stage design, mechanics.
They basically tried to turn the second game into an anime stealth game. Giving that cliché story, making everything colorful (who the hell thought would be a good idea for a ninja to wear a pink skirt and a fucking blue ribbon) making 20 fancy unnecessary stealth kill animations, with stages full of nothing left and right. The low draw distance worked in the first Tenchu. They justified it by making it really look like you were out on a dark night. On Tenchu 2 you are on a plain bright day and you can't see shit.

I'm not saying it's a bad game. I like almost every single game from the franchise but Tenchu 2 is far from being my favorite. It just looks like they had too many hands trying to make that game.

>> No.4265102

>Music, visuals, character design,
ok, I agree, partially. Models looked more ugly and were more pixelated in Tenchu 1 than 2.
Tenchu 1 had no story.
yep, thats right
Hmm how?
>Giving that cliché story,
Still better than no story at all.

>> No.4265106

Yes, characters looked more pixelated but they actually matched the entire setting of the game.
Tenchu needed no story. I'd rather have none than having the whole season of an anime crammed into one game. It was unnecessary.
They focused too much into trying to "improve" everything from the first game that it ended up losing some of it's identity in the process.
They corrected it on Tenchu 3 though.

>> No.4265115

>Yes, characters looked more pixelated but they actually matched the entire setting of the game.
Tenchu 2 characters matched setting also.
>Tenchu needed no story.
But it had story. And it was absurd. Some demon voodoo. And princess was anime as fuck, along with Rikimaru sacrifice. Put those rose tinted glasses off, man.
>They focused too much into trying to "improve" everything from the first game that it ended up losing some of it's identity in the process.
There wasnt much of an indentity, just a ninja simulator with little demon story behind. Still good phaze to introduce changes to the series. But of course you would be content with Tenchu 1,2,3,4,5,6, just with different missions, and enhanced graphics? No story no nothing? I really doubt.

>> No.4265132

Well, feel free to enjoy whatever game you like the best. Tenchu is a good series regardless of your favorite one.

>> No.4265140

> Tenchu is a good series regardless of your favorite one.
It's not a good series. They didnt innovate much after Tenchu 1 and 2, not to mention taking away the mission editor. Tenchu WOH was Tenchu 1 comeback with even more absurd story. Rest are shit.

>> No.4265270

In this level, if you climbed to the top of the building instead of entering the battle, there was a golden ball right on top floating in the sky. Does anyone know what that was or why it was there?

>> No.4265356

Huh, never noticed that. Is it supposed to be a moon?

>> No.4265529

It resembles a moon, but you can only see it while you are standing on the highest point of that roof, nowhere else. You can point at it with the rope to climb, but you can't get to it (I never managed).

Maybe it's there just to mark the boss event, maybe it's a glitch or maybe it was going to have a different function but they just forgot it there.

Man I haven't played this game since it came out. I used to play the shit out of it, trying to unlock all the hidden items, using the debug mode to fuck around with the levels, enemies, even tried having two people play with the AI control shit. Ah man now I have to go back and play this.

>> No.4267078

I prefered 2 just because of the level editor, being able to sit there and swap levels with your best friend and see if you could beat them was a great time.

Although I do specifically remember hating the way Rikimaru held his sword behind his back, and Tatsumaru was a bit of a fag. The way he would get into a sword fight and then start punching people was retarded.

I had the same problem. Saw a little gameplay on youtube and went to ebay and got Tenchu 1 and 2. Finally get it and it controls like a limp fish on land. Just gotta put in the time to adapt but it's a tough hurdle to overcome.

Tenchu 3 and Kurenai. And Shinobido, which is by the same studio, they kind of upgraded everything they could in the mechanics and engine. Has some newer flaws but it's a pretty enjoyable game.
