Tenchu definitely was the best game I played on the PS1. However, now I am confused why I felt the urgency to start a thread about a game for a system I don't own, nor do I suspect anyone else on STC owns... So, with that written and looking at how the thread immediately shifted to Tenchu talk, this is now a Tenchu thread.

Not that I'm trying to start a fight, but I'm not sure this is something to brag about.
Well, Tenchu is still getting mentioned in best ninja games ever made. It was way ahead of its time if you ask me with all the cool stuff you could do and stages you could design.
Tenchu 1 and 2 were big during their time but like many other PS1 games I wonder how they've aged.
Tenchu is.... one year shy of being able to buy liquor. Tenchu has aged.... like fine wine.
After the first two games, didn't the series kind of start a backwards slide into hell? I remember many Tenchu games getting bad reviews and I think part of the reason was the game's license was getting passed around like candy. I think the first few games were made by the Tenchu Team and after that it wasn't the case.
I don't know enough about the series to answer that, although I have seen one of the later games (Z?) mentioned as being a finely made game in the series.
