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: 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.
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.

Excerpt: Barring a few arcade spin offs the game has always remained an exclusive to Sony consoles with Tekken and the stunning Tekken 2 gracing the PS1 with Tekken Tag, Tekken 3, 4 and 5 all appearing on the PS2, not forgetting the PSP Tekken games too.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Fighting is good. As young kids, picking a fight at school and then attempting to beat the crap out of other kids with our bare hands was somewhat amusing, fun, liberating, and “cool” in a weird sense.
Summary: As I’ve stated Tekken is a very fun game to play even if you’re not a hardcore fighting fan. And hey, what do you know? If you’re a hardcore fighting fan, there’s a lot to fun to be had in Tekken 6. There is a lot to do, lots of fighters to play with, and lots of stuff to collect.
Excerpt: The series has always been known for its fast pace, smooth controls, and extensive combo system - all of which are retained and expanded upon.
