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. Players can also take the battle online for classic match-ups and to compete for world domination. [Namco Bandai Games] Expand

    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.

    I've been studying martial arts for over 10 years now and can say that all the realistic moves have been perfectly designed. This is the I've been studying martial arts for over 10 years now and can say that all the realistic moves have been perfectly designed. This is the smoothest fighting game i have ever played! I reccomend the PS3 version as it didn't feel as organic on the 360 control, don't be convinced by nostalgia freaks and arcade pros the arcade stick isn't genuinely a superior control type its just they have 20 years more practice with there control than you do with yours. enjoy!

I was blown away by the gameplay in the Scenario mode. The graphics are good. While the story in Scenario mode is nonexistent, all other fighting games don't have much of a story. Another problem is the final stage of Arcade mode where Azazel is impossible to beat. Still, this game is well worth your money. Expand

    This is NOT a bad game, it's just slightly disappointing as PS3 owners have been waiting 3 years for this game. If Namco spent more time This is NOT a bad game, it's just slightly disappointing as PS3 owners have been waiting 3 years for this game. If Namco spent more time polishing this game (graphics and giving it more modes) for the PS3 instead of putting it on the 360 as well for $$$, I'm sure this game would have been a 10. The graphics are bad, but the gameplay is classic Tekken and that is the sole reason why everyone should still buy this game. The new modes are interesting, but don't add too much and the new characters are well designed. Overall, this is an 8/10 game but PS3 owners deserve more than this. Expand

    a pretty cool fighting game but may leave your fingers sore after every battle because it can be a real button masher.

    Quite possibly the worst Tekken ever - namely for the fact that the core of the game isn't Tekken, but the horrid "Scenario Campaign." Quite possibly the worst Tekken ever - namely for the fact that the core of the game isn't Tekken, but the horrid "Scenario Campaign." Imagine a really repetitive action game, with bad controls, a boring story, and fighting game's cheat/psychic AI. That's Scenario Campaign. Now imagine if you had to go through Scenario campaign to unlock everyone's character endings, clothing, etc. That's Tekken 6. And online is laggy as hell too. Despite Scenario Campaign being horrible, the secondary "Tekken" mode that comes with it is pretty good in and of itself. I only wish this secondary mode was the focus of this game. 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
