Excerpt: The Nintendo 3DS is starting to show itself as a powerhouse in the hand held realm. I was skeptical about this little hand held at first, which is why I waited close to a year to purchase the system. Gamers know Tekken. This is a fighting game where there are all kinds of interesting characters.
Excerpt: Fighting games finally overcame the limitations of portable hardware on the PSP, and Tekken helped lead the charge. With a pair of stellar iterations, the series established itself as the preeminent genre leader on the system, delivering robust, near-console-quality fighting experiences that rarely...
Pros: Runs at 60 fps with or without 3D, Large character roster, online play, Complete CG movie on cartridge
Cons: Minimal, uninteresting play modes, Online interface a bit wonky, some lag, Tekken cards are totally useless
Excerpt: The Tekken series has more than made its mark on the fighting genre with its solid gameplay, unique characters, and diverse play-styles. Now Tekken makes its move to the 3DS. Luckily, it takes all its pros with it and puts it in a nice little portable pouch.
Excerpt: I had high hopes for Tekken 3D: Prime Edition when I first slotted the game cartridge into my 3DS. Nintendo’s handheld is a very capable piece of hardware that can deliver graphically impressive and content-rich games if the developer plays its cards right.
Summary: Tekken 3D Prime Edition sees the King of Iron Fist Tournament fought in 3D. Players choose from a selection of 40+ characters and do battle on new stages alongside others redesigned for the Nintendo 3DS.
Summary: Tekken 3D is a game that has a great sizzle, but no steak behind it. The game looks absolutely fantastic. The character models look terrific, are well detailed, and are well animated. The full Tekken 6 roster has been fully translated over to Tekken 3D with their full moves list as well.
Excerpt: Namco’s fighting game properties are getting really busy for 2012 aren’t they? At the tail end of 2011 the PS3 saw an exclusive release of Tekken Hybrid , and going into 2012 we’re already off to a good start with Soul Calibur V .
Excerpt: I hesitate to call Tekken 3D: Prime Edition for the Nintendo 3DS a watered down version of the beloved fighting franchise. I think 'condensed' is a better fit because, on paper, all the most important elements of Tekken are here; strong visuals, a huge roster of varied fighters, and addictively...
Conclusion: Sixty frames per second in 3D is indeed a marvelous technical achievement and Tekken 3D: Prime Edition deserves praise for reaching that goal. It's just too bad the game never bothered with building a deck around its ace.
