Tekken: Dark Resurrection (PSP) - Review
28 April 2009
Excerpt: Every series has a black sheep. For the hugely popular and long running Tekken fighting series, that black sheep is undoubtedly Tekken Advance. A failure with critics and at retail, the 3D fighting mechanics just could not hold up on the Game Boy Advance and made a strong case for never porting the series to the portable arena again.
Summary: This PSP Tekken manages to be everything you could possibly want from a portable 3D fighting game ... and a whole lot more! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games. This specific product, however, came straight from a PR guy for the purposes of being reviewed!
Excerpt: I'll fully admit it right now: I've never really liked the Tekken series of fighting games. My allegiance has been with the Street Fighter and Soul Calibur games, and every time I tried to play Tekken I'd get frustrated with just how quickly fights would end, the huge offense-oriented style of the games, and some of the really goofy characters. Now, with Tekken: Dark Resurrection on the PSP, I think I finally understand just what makes this series so fun.
Excerpt: There's no doubt about it that every PSP owner knows the reason they bought a PSP is to play flagship titles than they loved on the PS2 in the palm of their hands. Certain flagships arrived early on in the system's life (Metal Gear, Ridge Racer), others trickled in (Grand Theft Auto, Daxter), meanwhile others are taking much longer than expected (Gran Turismo).
Conclusion: Though it's probably impossible to get a proper online fighting experience Dark Resurrection comes about as close as we can hope for -- and it's completely portable. Few games are this uncompromising, and every PSP owner needs this game. Yep, all of em.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Another fighter, another port for the PSP. This game is not. Let’s face it, apart from GTA; the PSP has yet to have a killer app. And this game is it. Heck, it leaves every other game on the PSP in dust! Haters might disagree.
Excerpt: The Playstation Portable is truly an amazing machine. When it launched, fighting fans were treated to the excellent Darkstalkers Chronicle. Less than a year later, Capcom again blessed us with what may be the best version of Street Fighter Alpha 3 yet. However, there haven’t been any successful 3D fighters for the system here in the States. Namco looks to remedy that by presenting us with what could be the first real system-selling game since Grand Theft Auto.
