The series is so hemmed in by its own history - and the demands of fans - that it is largely unable to innovate. As such, the PSP version, while a solid iteration of an eminently playable formula, is able to grow only in width rather than concept. [Sept 2006, p.85]
Another fantastic Tekken spinoff this time for the Playstation Portable.
This is an upgraded version of Tekken 5 with more added content and a few changes.
-Fighters were given new moves and damage balancing was updated to make the game more fair.
-It improved on the customization system.
-We get two new characters to the series: Sergei Dragunov, a Russian agent who specializes in Russian Martial Arts and a French aristocratic girl called Lili who lives with her grandfather Sebastian. Armor King also makes his return to the series since Tag Tournament.
-New remixed stages with remixed music were created instead of using the Tekken 5 stages although we get the Streets, Ground Zero and Final Frontier stages.
-We get a bonus game mode with mini games for players to earn gold for the customization mode and a dojo mode to prove you are the greatest Tekken player.
-You could listen to the game's soundtrack and watch the endings when you beat Story Mode like Tekken 5 as well.
A great spin-off to my favorite fighting game series.
