  1. Tekken 6 is probably the best fighting game from this generation.
  2. The game is virtually bursting at the seams with content, and it’s got near flawless controls for both newcomers and hardcore fighters alike.
  3. Tekken 6 is the best 3D fighting game of this generation. Namco Bandai has done an excellent job translating the arcade game to our gamepads.
  4. 90
    It is slick in production, providing a lot of what one could reasonably ask for in a fighting game. The game is as accessible as ever, pretty to look at and arcade-perfect to a T.
  5. Tekken 6 its still Tekken: deep gameplay, very amount of characters, new game modes including an inspired and funny Campaign Mode and, of course, Online support for 1vs1 battles. Did you like Tekken? you'll enjoy this one. Do you like fighting games? Ok, don't doubt it: this is your game.
  6. From giant pandas to Streets of Rage-inspired brawling, this is the most complete fighting game available to-date.
  7. If you're after a solid and well respected 3D hand to hand fighter that is every bit as good offline as it is online then this is well worth the investment.
  8. After bringing the series closer to its roots in Tekken 5, Namco has continued that trend with Tekken 6 and the end result is a game sure to please fighting fans of any experience level.
  9. An excellent addition to a great franchise, this is a game that will be enjoyed by gamers of all types. Highly recommended for all Xbox 360 owners.
  10. Tekken 6 is not to be missed and ever player should be proud to have it in their gaming library.
  11. By taking the best elements of the previous releases, blending them with borrowed features from the competition, and adding entirely new elements, we are now presented with a whole new experience, and the injection of longevity into a game that has expanded the boundaries of its genre. This is hours upon hours of fun and an absolute must-have for anybody who has ever enjoyed martial arts-based games.
  12. 88
    Tekken 6 has a lot to offer, including a massive roster, refined gameplay, plenty of modes, online multiplayer and an absurd amount of character customization options.
  13. Controls and combos are incredibly tight, and the entire package is dripping with polish. Despite the lackluster Scenario Campaign, it’s still a solid purchase for fighting fans.

    Tekken 6 is a great fighting game. It's very complex and deep fighting system will have people playing it for a while if they are committedTekken 6 is a great fighting game. It's very complex and deep fighting system will have people playing it for a while if they are committed into getting better at it. In every Tekken squeal, they reveal a new chapter of the story, new fighters and moves in your bag of tricks to master.

    the customization since the fifth Tekken game has increase significantly, you can custom the character to the point that it looks like an entirely different character. But it isn't a FASHION SHOW, it's a fighting game!

    The online IS the where the serious Tekken player can be very competitive where your skills are strained. You are also ranked and your wins and loses are recorded and displayed to you opponents and to Tekken leaderboard browsers. But then you WILL learn in the biggest on concept of Tekken 6 is strategy and anticipation.

    The story goes can go as deep as just watching a HI-Res cut scene of whatever fighter you completed the arcade with BUT it's goes even further in Scenario Campaign Mode which is like Tekken Force Mode but times 20 (Online CoOP capable). You see some of the 40 fighters involved in the story plot of a new family member of the Mishima family and Dr. B's new creation to stop evil. I couldn't follow the story much.....I just wanted to make bank for customization.

    A few NEW systems are added to Tekken 6. Juggling is also a primary concept in Tekken 6. Attacking opponents while they are in midiair, it's hard to explain but you could go on the internet and searcj for Tekken 6 combos and see for yourself. This system is ABUSED in online mode.

    Rage Mode is when your fighter is near defeat. It's health bar glows red showing your fighter is PISSED!

    This game is Tekken perfection. I haven't taken it online yet, but I am more than happy with the content already provided to me. The This game is Tekken perfection. I haven't taken it online yet, but I am more than happy with the content already provided to me. The Ghost Battles are endlessly entertaining, the Scenario Campaign is better than I thought it would be and is being unfairly bashed in my opinion. There is a metric ton of items to unlock, the fighting is just polished to perfection and the game is just overall massive fan service to long time Tekken players. If you have ever liked Tekken in the past, or just want a new fighter... get this game. Full Review »
