terrible game: lack of freedom and ancient controls let me down big time. I was really hoping for my proper tenchu experience after the second instalment.

I wasn't aware of this games existence. From sales I don't think other people were aware either.

Did Ubisoft advertise at all?

Yeah, combined with sales of the psp version, 120k-140k should be profitable.

Shadow mode is even harder. Swing the wiimote at the level select screen and get ready for more enemies and different level layouts :)

30k its a decent startup for Japan, maybe 70kish in US might get this to 100k soon

The music really adds a lot to this game. Waiting patiently for an enemy to let his guard down doesn't seem onerous at all when you have a kickass soundtrack to enjoy while you wait.

Good game. Great music, great Wii graphics, ok controls.

Overall its a pretty good game, if you like stealth. Id go with a 7.5-8.5

Very solid stealth action game that really returns Tenchu to form. It is made by Acquire, which made the first 2 and are still the best.

The music is great just like all other Tenchu games, the controls are solid, and the game is rather long with good replay value.

Also in case you didn't know there is a 'Shadow Mode' for every level after you beat it. Just shake the wiimote at the level select screen and get ready for much harder levels with more enemies and different routes!

Great game if you like stealth or ninjas :)

This game is excellent. Nobody gives the soundtrack enough credit. The game is just master class in thee areas of design, music/sound, pace, and Wii graphics. I have only played the first Tenchu on Playstation so I was not even much a fan of the series. This game is awesome.

Im guessing this will get an opening week of 50-60k in america. Then it will drop to 40-50. If this game makes around 500k it will be a hit and ubisoft will make sequels which they have already announced. 2 sequels.

All I have to say is I loved the first couple Tenchu's and since this is made by the devs who made the first ones, I am getting it.

This is one of my few weaknesses... ninjas ;)

Actually Tenchu Z on the 360 sold about the same as the Wii, but Wii is only in 3 weeks where as Z 20K lifetime in Japan.

I think 4 will sell pretty good in Americas if promoted properly.

If both 2nd and 3rd week fall below 10k, then I'd call if a flop. For now, I'm taking the wait & see approach...
