Summary: I haven't played a tekken game since tekkn 3, so I was rusty when I started playing this game. No practice mode didn't help matters. But for $20 it is a steal. Still, I was expecting the character endings, which is why i can only give a 7.
Summary: Definately not on of the best in the series. Compared to VF, the moves and graphics suffer, and the game hasn't really moved into the HD era just yet. Although you're running at 1080p, you still see some rough edges which you don't expect, and realise this is just a rush job to cash in on the public's demand for new ps3 content. I'll wait for Tekken 6.
Summary: It's not really fair that this is being compared to virtua fighter 5 because it's not a new game. It's the arcade game (hence the lack of modes) that has been put on PS3 with some graphics updates for HD, Hi-res play. Once of the main reasons for it is to appease people trying to do tekken tournaments with this game, which gets really hard at an arcade with one game, and yo u can't do them on the PSP. $20 for this is amazing.
Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection (PS3): Good but Tekken-lite
27 December 2009
Summary: I have been sceptical of Tekken: Dark Resurrection for quite some time now; it absolutely reeks of cash-in, but before I bought the recently released Tekken 6, I wanted to give it a go as I am a huge fan of the series. What this game adds is a bunch more costumes and arenas, and while it won't do much for the casual player, the hardcore crowd will probably love it, even if it probably isn't worth the £15-20 it has been priced at on PSN (as to my knowledge it isn't...
Summary: Tekken 5 Dark Ressurection Online is an exclusive online enabled version of the game for the Playstation 3. Tekken 5 on the Playstation 2 was excellent and with the addition of online play I thought this would be a real winner and bought this without hesitation. Tekken 5 had an excellent story mode, in Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection online it is gone! The game provides you with only the basic Arcade mode, 2 Player mode and Online mode to play with.
Pros: Good fighting mechanics, large roster of characters, character customization
Cons: Wheres the story mode! Why is online rubbish! Where are the ending movies! Where are the extras!?
