Displayed in HD detail, a new era begins in the sixth King of the Iron Fist Tournament complete with intense gameplay modes as well as new features and environments. TEKKEN 6 sees the return of many familiar faces as well as new characters to create the largest line-up the series has ever seen. With a growing roster of fighters, each equipped with their own deadly techniques, moves and attack combinations, TEKKEN 6 will be the best King of Iron Fist Tournament yet. Adding to the already rich gaming experience, a deeper character customization feature will only further enhance the incredible fighting intensity as players go mano-y-mano.

    There are flaws that hurt the experience, but nothing, nothing stops Tekken 6 from being an intense, tactical and utterly brilliant fighting game, perfect for anyone with even a fleeting interest in the genre. [Issue#184, p.60]
  2. At the end of the day, Tekken 6 is definitely a fun fighter, however it is plagued by some gameplay issues, more specifically the horrendous campaign mode and programming issues such as lengthy loading times.

    Tekken 6 is finally here and the game is good again. The animations are brilliant, customizing is finally interesting and it’s got a lot of gameplay options. Only the Scenario mode wasn’t really necessary.
  4. Tekken 6 isn't a bad game, but it doesn't feel like it does anything new with the genre.
  5. An awesome game. It just could have been better.

    While a welcome online patch is currently in the works, it still doesn’t excuse the game shipping with such glaring issues. The meagre campaign mode is another thorn in the side of Tekken 6 and as such, the game simply fails to stack up against the slick perfection of Street Fighter IV.
  7. In spite of a beautiful HD update, Tekken 6 on the PS3 just doesn't hold up as well.

    Tekken at its finest. Still waiting for that online patch but otherwise it plays great! People might complain about the graphics but I dont Tekken at its finest.

    Solid gameplay, amazing graphics, pretty decent soundtrack... it's highly recommended for fighting fans around. It's not the best Tekken butSolid gameplay, amazing graphics, pretty decent soundtrack... it's highly recommended for fighting fans around. It's not the best Tekken but it's up there with the best. The story may not be all that good but its something to get your mind into with it going back to the Tekken 4 Tekken Force style, which I enjoyed. If you havent played it give it a shot. Expand

    I just don't know... what is it about this that stands out? It's fun for sure. It's no worse than T3 which I loved. Theres nothing reallyI just don't know... what is it about this that stands out? It's fun for sure. It's no worse than T3 which I loved. Theres nothing really wrong with it. But as a guy who plays SF4, VF5, BB, SC5, and KoF13, this seems just... blah. But still good . Realistically, you could grab the strat guide and easily spend 60 hours learning this and enjoying every minute, but you'd be missing out on the other fighting games. Hey, there's nothing wrong with a 7. Expand

    After the excellent Tekken 5, an expectation for the next "king of the iron fist tournament" was high among fans of this fighting game.
    the bandai namco decided to risk and tried to expand its way of telling the plot with a new game mode that resembles the classics of beat em up of the arcades, (something like tekken force mode from tekken 3) but the result is not the Best ... tekken 6 story turned out to be a weird mix between world war , gods of Egypt, robots and a fighting tournament.
    Note: This mode is not included in the psp version.

    Moreover, the game features the arcade mode which is as usual with the same quality but with many more characters ,the mode of customization that was deployed in the previous game, returned much more detailed.

    The graphics are very rich and as CGI are beautiful as usual in the series but a soundtrack can not please every taste.

    Pros and cons
    + Beautiful graphics and CGI
    + Number of characters
    + Customization mode

    - Story mode
    - Little innovation in traditional mode

    Tekken 6's fighting is as good and addictive as ever showcased with excellent visuals and sound. Everything else about the game is a Tekken 6's fighting is as good and addictive as ever showcased with excellent visuals and sound. Everything else about the game is a bitter disappointment. First, you cannot rank higher than 1st dan in offline arcade mode. The only way to have your character climb the ranks is to win online fights. Why ? Bitter disappointent. Second, scenario campaign is dull, clanky, and repetitive, adding nothing other than plot points to a ridiculous and cheeseball storyline. Why? Bitter disappointment. Third, Azazel, the boss character, has to be one of the worst ever. Why can't these people design a boss that offers a challenge through the depth of their A.I.? Bitter disappointment. Fourth, the online mode where players much better than you and keeping your character's ranking ever low looks as if it was hastily programmed as an afterthought. Why? .....sigh. Someone ought to serve the folk at Bandai Namco a delicious juicy steak, but garnished with runny manure because that's what Tekken 6 would taste like if it were food. Expand

    I'll be brief; campaign mode is a total joke and poorly done yet somehow is the main focus of the game, the fighting is the same I'll be brief; campaign mode is a total joke and poorly done yet somehow is the main focus of the game, the fighting is the same ol' Tekken and the new characters are terrible, and even worse, the online is laggy and is need of some serious patchwork. This game is trash, Street Fighter 4 and BlazBlue are both superior fighters in every aspect imaginable. Not worth the money, but for all of you "gamers" out there that love easy achievements/trophies, this game has the easiest trophy pack I've ever seen! Just saying... Expand
