Flawed, But Fun
on November 23, 2009
Tekken 6 is worth the purchase. The game mechanics are as sharp as ever showcased by superb graphics and sound. That being said, the overall product is riddled with flaws. To begin, scenario campaign mode is a waste of your time and a waste of valuable disc space that could have been used otherwise. The final boss, Azazel, is one of the worst and cheapest boss characters ever. You cannot rank higher than first dan in arcade mode. To rank higher you must play your character online. Why that is makes no sense to me. Also, there's a lot of the game that is virtually unchanged from it's predecesor like simple animations when characters win or lose. It would have been nice to see a slew of fresh touches. Let's hope the next iteration rids itself of any idiotic scenario campaigns, features challenges to accomplish like perform a 10 hit combo for example, and allows players to have two seperate online and offline rankings for their characters. Beyond that Tekken 6 is still the same addictive fighter it's always been.
