    I love Tekken. I loved it the moment I played the Tekken 2 demo that came bundled with my Playstation. When I bought Tekken 3 I thought it was the best game ever made. From that moment on, Tekken â

    This is gonna be short and sweet. This game is a joke. When it premiered at E3 a few years back, we all marveled at the visuals, they were amazing. Now we get the game and it looks like hammered dog-crap. Jagged, pixelated characters. Bland environments with simple textures. Blurry menu screens. Come on, Virtua Fighter 5 came out in 2006 and looks much better than this, even Namco's other fighter Soul Caliber 4 which came out long before this looks better. Terrible. As for the gameplay, it is the same game you've been playing for years with little added or taken away. If you're playing against others its fine, but against the AI, even on the lower difficulties you're gonna be upset. AI opponents bring a near-perfect game, sometimes they cheat, and they are always cheap. This was fine years ago but games have evolved, how about giving us an end boss that is challenging because he's smart, not because he always blocks, his moves cannot be blocked, he can kill you with three moves, and he is psychic. Lame. There is a scenario mode, which is boring, repetitious and ugly to look at. There isn't a whole lot to unlock except stuff for your fighter to wear, I guess playing paper-dolls is fun for adults in Japan. Creepy. When compared to any other fighter, this game can't stand up visually, in terms of gameplay or content. The story is ludicrous, the gameplay is dated, and the graphics are laughable. If you're in it for the multiplayer you might get some value out of this. But if you would also like some single-player action you're out of luck, there isn't much here and what little there is is tedious. Oh, and ripping off Street Fighter characters isn't cool Namco. I'll stick with Tekken 5, it is better than this is in every way. This gets a 2 for having decent online and because there is nothing functionally wrong with the game. Expand

    Its funny because Tekken 6 is the first Tekken game to go mulitplatform and its the worst installment in the series. Hopefully they return exclusive to the PlayStation brand where Tekken belongs.

    Is it just me or do fighting games add increasingly dumb characters and plot to their sequels. Most of the new guys/gals in this installment are either a walking / talking (punching) anime stereotype or just a stretch into dumb. After the amnesiac cutesy cyborg girl with rocket boosters and hidden chainsaws popped up, I lost any remaining respect I had for the series. Methinks I doth purchased my final Tekken game. Expand

    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.

    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.
  3. Tekken 6 is probably the best fighting game from this generation.
