I gave it a 6/10 because of great visuals and robust character selection. Unfortunately, it is more or less the same game as Tekken 4 and 5.
This is very much a rental game but a MUST have if price falls below $20 for collection value. I think in fighting genre, Street Fighter 4 is still the king to beat in terms of gameplay, fun, challenge and replay value. 2D game done right still beats Tekken or Virutal Fighter easily.
The Tekken franchise is one of the best fighting genres around and Tekken 6 will definitely not disappoint. The overall presentation is excellent and is chock full of CG cut scenes. The story may be confusing to some, but longtime fans will understand. Character models are pristine and overall design is awesome, but some textures and locations may seem a bit bland. The core gameplay of Tekken is still the same: simple, but difficult to master. The Scenario Campaign is a mixed bag; You will either love it or hate it, but for all achievement/trophy fanatics it cannot be avoided. There are a total of 40 playable characters this time around and each have their own individual stories and histories that players can enjoy. The online aspect is fairly good. There isn't too much lag, however on the Player Match option I would lose connection to the other player every now and then. There is supposed to be a patch sometime in the future which may solve some of these difficulties. Replay value is good and it will keep you busy for a while. At the end of the day, Tekken 6 is a very enjoyable game that should definitely not be missed by Tekken fans and gamers alike. 8/10

The game was pretty much like tekken 4 and 5 aside from the new modes added, the destructible enviorments didnt feel and look as good as portrayed but the overall fighting experience holds up to the tekken name, i gave it a 5 because for a nextgen game they could have done alot more with it, the graphics are amazing and plays very well, aside from the scenario the targeting and blocking is a little clunky but ok. Fans of Tekken will love the game, im not knockin it. Enjoy ppl
