Forget Solid Snake and all those pretty boys with pop guns. If you’re the kind of guy who likes to chop his prey into Sizzlean before he gets a whiff of your bad man musk, then the ninjas of Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven are right up your dojo. Unlike other games that suggest sneaking around town, the hordes of sword-wielding brutes in this game make it a requirement. Just don’t get the idea that this pussyfooting makes for a slow, boring game: There’s plenty of Jet Li–esque moves and decapitations to be had (more than Cradle 2 the Grave, anyway)—not to mention the opportunity to indulge your inner perverted assassin, peeping in the occasional window or two along the way.
