Review: Tekken 6 PSP, Very Similar to the Home Console Version
19 February 2010
Excerpt: When it comes to 3D fighting, connoisseurs know that the Tekken series has always set a standard. This legendary fighting series had already made its way onto the PSP when Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection successfully made the jump from arcade to console over three years ago.
Excerpt: Tekken has been steadily fighting its way into the hearts of hardcore gamers for years now. The Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 versions of Tekken 6 brought the series to a new level of realism. Hand held versions are generally scaled down versions that few hardcore gamers enjoy.

Fighting games do often wind up very well suited to a portable system, as the quick bouts and short-attention-span action are perfect for when you're spending...
Excerpt: With Tekken 6 on PSP, Bandai Namco is trying to emulate the tremendous success it saw from Tekken: Dark Resurrection, the PSP version of Tekken 5.
