Summary: Tekken 6 offers 40 characters, plenty of modes, and the great Tekken gameplay that the series has always been known for. It doesn’t look as nice as other Xbox 360 fighters, and the Scenario Campaign is pretty darn awful, but the core gameplay is still really, really good which makes Tekken 6 worth...
Summary: : Tekken 6 is a great fighting game, make no mistake about that, but with some minor tweaks and adjustments, it could have been even better, and while it’s still worth picking up if you’re even a little interested, some more work would have made it a must purchase title.
Worthy brawler skimpy on story, appropriate female attire.

Summary: Parents need to know that since Tekken 6 is a fighting game, kids will see lots of violence. The game's characters study an area of martial arts, executing flurries of punches, kicks, and throws against opponents.
Conclusion: The problem is, there’s supposed to be a game attached to this mode, too, but that feels like an afterthought. The gameplay is reminiscent of old-school beat-’em-ups, with the player fighting though a number of nameless thugs, culminating in the obligatory boss battles.
Excerpt: It seems difficult to criticise Tekken 6 for feeling like an uninspired effort from Namco Bandai in the same year we heap praise upon Street Fighter 4 - a fighting game Capcom is delighted to hear described as Street Fighter 2.5. But it lacks the freshness, sparkle and zing SF4 has in abundance.
Excerpt: What are the challenges of sending a hedgehog into space? Well, obviously their spines would rip the space suit and the instant something frightened them they would curl into a ball and break their helmet in the process.
Conclusion: you will keep playing is to unlock characters for the normal story mode (more on that later) and for customization equipment. You're allowed to change characters during the scenario mode, but it doesn't really make much sense unless you are being Lars since the whole point of the story is focused...
Excerpt: After a four year absence on consoles, the Tekken series has finally made its current-gen debut with its best entry yet. Tekken 6 offers new modes, expanded customization, and improved gameplay that is smoother than ever before.
Conclusion: Then there is your Survival mode, Team Battle and Practice mode. I like the game more then the Last Street Fighter but I am partial to the Tekken Series. I like the fact that the roster is huge. Over all it is a good game.
Excerpt: Namco Bandai recently released a Tekken 6 patch to fix several problems plaguing the online portion of the game. With the patch, I probably won't hear the words, "Online is f****** unplayable," a passionate sentiment sent to me over Xbox Live when Tekken 6 first released.
Pros: Tekken is your fighter of choice or you can find room for it amongst the genre's crowded schedule.
Cons: fighting games aren't your punching bag, no, not even ones with great dress-up options.
