Kikizo: Tekken 6: Hands-On Preview

Kikizo writes: The original Tekken was not only the first PlayStation game to sell a million copies, but it was also the first title in a series that for more than twelve years has helped define Sony's PlayStation brand. Later this year, the seventh instalment - Tekken 6 - will be released for the PlayStation 3, a console that would arguably benefit from some sort of definition.

Those hoping for a complete re-invention will be disappointed, while those just wanting more of the same but better will be very happy. These games are designed from the ground up to appeal to two distinct demographics; the hardcore and the casuals. They have to be accessible to newcomers and still have enough depth and lasting appeal to keep the more experienced gamers and veteran series fans hooked. After spending a lot of hours and a lot of hard earned cash playing the game, I'm happy to report that the game is everything Dark Resurrection was, and more.

This is great to here. And in all honesty, most of these sequels only need one thing to be good. Great graphics. As long as some of these originals keep the core gameplay intact, I'll be more than happy to buy the next-gen version.

Also, the rage system sounds pretty cool as do the item moves. I'm just looking forward to see some of the crazy stuff they add on to the PS3 version.

bubbles for having partners that understand why we cant drop the pads

Cannot wait for T6. What a year this will be

EZCheez3964d ago (Edited 3964d ago )

That's actually where my wife draws the line. And honestly I can't blame her. She tried Tekken DR online and hated the experience.

And cr33pind death,I thought the same about Leo.

Also, I would like to point out before any spelling fanatics attack me, I know I used here instead of hear. Forgive me.

sonarus3964d ago

i need to find myself a girl who doesn't just watch. One where i don't have to tell her the button to reload every time we play coop. Thats going to be number 1 criteria for girls now lol

controls great on the standard controller. This is the only fighting game where I can perform all the moves for each fighter without having trouble. I am very glad they have made only minor changes because for home console kung-fu Tekken is the best.

ssbains3964d ago

Tekken Dark Ressurection was great.
Before that both Tekken 4 and Tekken 3 on PS2 were great.

This should be no different.

I just hope the CGI rendered movies when you complete the level with each character is nice and long.

Namco have not dissapointed in the past, here is to another great edition to the Tekken library.

We also like the character creator and multiple fighting levels, nice to keep the game current with other titles supporting these features !!!

Danja3964d ago

Tekken 3 was on the PS1..

and Tekken 4 was a mess....Tekken 5 was amazing....Dark Ressurection was/still is awesome

and Tekken 6 will own

akaFullMetal3964d ago

yea 4 wasnt that great, but 5 was awesome, 6 should be awesome as well, cant wait

resistance1003964d ago

Tekken is a fighting series i have loved since the Playstation, the fact they haven't changed much over the years it what keeps me buying the games

INehalemEXI3964d ago (Edited 3964d ago )

I like that they have done multi tier levels like DoA/MK. I want a tag mode in the PS3 version of T6.

ISA_Scum3964d ago

Not a huge fighter gamer, but this and Soul Calibur (for Vader) are catching my eye. Hope it turns out well, wasn't a big fan of Virtua Fighter 5, my first next-gen fighting experience.

sonarus3964d ago

I enjoyed dark resurrection way better that VF5. I borrowed it from a friend returned it the next day. Just a boring ol fighter. Personally not a big fan of fighters but i am waiting on SFII HD turbo so i can beat on some friends, tekken 6 and soul calibur 4(just for vader).
