Tekken 6 review
103 Views No comments


This has got to be the worst Tekken game out of the whole series. Tekken 4 was quite awful, but at least it had story mode. And I honesty believe if a game, especially Tekken, hasn't got a Story Mode, then what's the point?!...I don't think there is any. Great graphics, as usual, Namco never disappoints me when it came to the visuals, never, but obviously that's not enough. New characters too are a big disappointment; Alisa the Russian robot, can't say I'm that impressed by her, just a female Jack really. Then you have Bob, a fat guy and it's suppose to be cool cause he's fat, yeah them sort of jokes stopped being funny years ago, come on Namco, where's the fresh ideas?!. Another new character is Swedish Lars Alexandersson, he's okay, but he isn't anything special, he's just a blonde Jin now that I think about it. Oh, and I have to say this, Namco even went so unoriginal to create a Justin Bieber based character named Leo, it's a big mystery whether he's a boy or a girl. So while we keep guessing and wanting to know the truth, Namco in the meantime will be raping our wallets. I, honesty, couldn't care less what the hell he/she is...since I think he/she's a shitty character and I never use him/her, I don't know about anybody else, but I think he/she should be rewarded for the worst new character. He/she defiantly needs the boot. We then have Miguel, who I personally think is yet another disappointing new character; he basically just stands there like he's drunk, you then press about a thousand buttons or do your moves that you practised etc. he doesn't do anything, only be him when you want to lose a match, and when should you ever want that?!. We then have Zafina, another 'weird' character. She's only for show really, you can tell it was just another crappy thought out character, some sort of gypsie woman it appears. Again, she doesn't do anything hardy, and is defiantly a character you'd have to put a lot more effort into if you were to become anything near 'professional' with her, that's why I just stuck to the characters I used in the first place - still better than ever.

So to put it in a easy sort of way, Tekken 6 is without a doubt the worst game in the series, though back some years ago the graphics were rather crappy, you can forgive that since that was the only fault and it was soon to improve over a short time, but this, well, I don't think there's an excuse for this. Terribly, unoriginal and not well though out characters which were launched in this game purely for the sake of people to buy it, in which I am indeed a victim of. No story mode, which means you wont find any new information and follow the story of your favourite character. When you go to Arena mode, it shows you art pictures for the reason as to why they're in the competition, yet the writing which comes up which you're suppose to read, but you can't because it's far to small to read. Though arena mode is still not the same as story mode. I think the only thing you're going to get out of this game is the online mode, still it isn't brilliant, and it will only entertain you for so long, and you'll soon get the desperation to put one of the older Tekken games on to remind you of what it was once like.

Overall, a terrible game, a flawed game. The faults are endless, I'm sure I've missed a few, but I wasn't faced with them as I didn't play the game for that long, I hardy got through a weekend. The new characters are cheesy and uninteresting, Namco was not trying to impress us, they were taking us for idiots, in which we live up to that title for buying this game in the first place. Just simply avoid it.
