  • Summary: TEKKEN: Dark Resurrection arrives on the PSP. New characters Lili and Dragunov join the classic cast such as Jin, Heihachi, Paul and Law in the battle to be crowned King of the Iron Fist Tournament. An all-new intro movie lets you dive into the midst of the world of TEKKEN, this time with ad-hoc multiplayer mode to fight against friends as well as more items to customize your favorite characters. The beauty of TEKKEN is re-created on the handheld console, delivering one of the most realistic graphics on a handheld platform. A variety of destructible objects pump up the action on 19 stages. Play as one of over 30 characters, including classics Jin, Heihachi, Paul, Law and more. New characters Lili and Dragunov join the classic cast with all-new fight styles and moves. Collecting victories to lead your character to become king rewards you with ending movies for each character. Use your fight money to customize your characters – with more than double the items seen in TEKKEN 5. Using Wi-Fi connectivity of the PSP platform, you can battle against your friends – take your customized, original character against theirs and let the battle unfold. Mini-games provide a little breather from heart-pumping fighting action for more fun against friends. [Namco] Collapse

  1. This will feel fresh and immediate even to those whose Tekken-love was waning. It's engaging, exceptional and essential. [Sept 2006, p.82]
  2. Virtually guaranteed to become an instant classic. It's fast, furious, fun and fantastically florid and flagitious.
  3. This PSP Tekken manages to be everything you could possibly want from a portable 3D fighting game...and a whole lot more!
  4. Tekken: Dark Resurrection PSP could have been better, but when the only notable problem with the game – its repetition - is a genre wide problem, then you know you have a winner on your hands.
  5. In so many words, it feels like the PSP's killer app. [Sept 2006, p.63]
  6. Its arsenal isn’t as robust as it could be, but it makes up for it with a flurry of awesome modes and some deadly fast gameplay.
  7. The conversion is spot on, the graphics, sound and control are superb, and short bursts of the single-player are a joy. It's such a shame, then, that the multi-player is a let down. [Sept 2006, p.108]

    The port itself is very good, having the tekken dojo as an extra content to tekken 5. The graphic and the sound also is convincing. The problem lies in the digi pad that gives you hard times, when you play a serious match where quick combinations and reflexes are needed. But expect this everything else is good. Expand

    Great Tekken gameplay with a large roster and plenty of extra modes online and offline (I'm a big Tekken Bowling fan). Tekken looks surprisingly good on PSP. In fact, no area has been sacrificed in the sizing-down of the game. This is the kind of game that works well on a portable device, with quick and satisfying action on hand whenever you need it.

    Tekken: DR is awesome game packed with most of the fighters from other titles in series, huge amount of moves and combos and big number of unique special attacks for every character. Because of that this game is ritch with content like new game modes and two all new and powerfull characters. Tekken: DR is great port from big console on smaller. This game is worth your money.
