  1. Tekken 6 is probably the best fighting game from this generation.
  2. 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.
  3. With its beefy cast, impressive Scenario Campaign mode, and expansive customisation options, Tekken 6 is the new heavyweight in the fighting game arena.
  4. Tekken 6 is a great package and, while it doesn’t make any huge innovative leaps, the Tekken series remains one of the best 3D fighters on the market today.
  5. Tekken 6 doesn’t try to reinvent the fighting game, or even change the Tekken formula too much. It does, however, deliver a gorgeous, extremely solid 3D fighting experience with plenty of customization options.
  6. Not the best Tekken, but the biggest. Still daft, still fun, still second rate.
  7. The awkward campaign mode would be completely forgettable if Tekken 6 worked better online. But with it ranging from "almost acceptable" to "pre-patch King of Fighters XII" in connection quality, it's hard to recommend to anyone who doesn't already have a local crew of Tekken fiends at their disposal.

    This game is simply excellent. Each Level you fight at feels unique and different, some feature breakable walls or floors, and have stuffThis game is simply excellent. Each Level you fight at feels unique and different, some feature breakable walls or floors, and have stuff going on in the background adding a little extra depth and character to each of these Locations.

    The Scenario Mode I have mixed feelings about it, I greatly enjoy the more fleshed out interactions between characters, showing us hints of their individual personalities. this was something huge new and fresh especially for me because I only played the PSP version. Though I will say the Scenario Mode Combat is far from smooth, Its completely divorced from the Normal Gameplay you only have a couple of moves for whichever character you choose. Personally I think this would have worked much better If it gave you a choice of lets say up to moves you could use for this mode, i get what they were going for but, I feel it could have been executed better.

    The Cosmetic Customization is even better than Tekken 7. In Tekken 7 you unlock with in game lootboxes while these are not monetized they still leave an awful taste in my mouth. In Tekken 6 All the Items are there available for you from the Beginning, It just a matter of accumulating the neccessary amount of in Game currency to get the items you want.

    The Game has a low Skill floor making it very accessible for new and less skilled players, whilst also having a very high skill ceiling giving players something to strive for, The ranking system is also excellent as you have to fight and defeat high Ranking characters in order to improve your rank [As of the time Im writing this review Im at 1st Dan]

    You want to prove your skill take your game online and challenge people from around the world.

    The Actual Combat outside of Scenario is buttery Smooth, 40 Characters each with their own unique fighting style...and it feels rewarding when you learn a characters moveset, just as it does when you rank up.

    Overall I give it a 9 prevented from reaching 10 because of the desicion to cut Gold Rush mode, but the game has plenty of content fun buttery smooth gameplay excellent,extensive comsetic Customization.

    if you are a fighting game fan like me and have a PS3/ Xbox 360/One then Get this game. You Will Not Regret it.

    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!

    Tekken 6 is a well needed upgrade from Tekken 5: DR. The graphics make it the most visually appealing fighting game, and huge combo lists add Tekken 6 is a well needed upgrade from Tekken 5: DR. The graphics make it the most visually appealing fighting game, and huge combo lists add to the play styles for each character. The bound system, is also a nice new addition, allowing players to make their old juggles much longer and more punishing. If your looking for a good fighter, I highly recommend Tekken 6. Just avoid the scenario campaign mode. It's easily the worst feature Tekken 6 has to offer. Expand

    There's nothing wrong with Tekken 6's gameplay per se. The "bound" system is a fresh addition; the characters shine on 1080P There's nothing wrong with Tekken 6's gameplay per se. The "bound" system is a fresh addition; the characters shine on 1080P capable XBOX360 and PS3; and it's fun overall, but they botched the console port. Scenario campaign is the worst kind of filler; you can't rank up past 1st dan in Ghost Mode (which is what gave Tekken DR on the PSP most of its replay value); Arcade mode is an afterthought at best; and the ending cinematics are the dullest in the franchise. Rent, don't buy. For a balanced, fun fighting game, wait for Super Street Fighter IV. Expand

    I've played this game and all I can say about it is: "WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP!"; Unballanced fighters, crappy playability, pretty lame I've played this game and all I can say about it is: "WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP!"; Unballanced fighters, crappy playability, pretty lame graphics, annoying and continuous cutscenes. Thats the worst fighting game I ever played on my 360; looks like an old pstwo game. If you have a 360 and you do like fighting games, don't buy this one; you have better choices. Expand
