Tekken 6 (PS3)
Advantages: The game modes continue to impress
Disadvantages: Online can lag at times
I have loved playing tekken since the second game came out and things have moved on a lot since then. One disappointment was that they removed on of the best modes of the game, tekken tag tournament. Tekken 4 was great to play in 3D, but probably was a little short in the number of characters available. Tekken 6 has sorted these problems out with many characters to choose from aswell as hundreds on new moves and backdrops to test out.
The main upgrade for this game is the new online mode, which allows you to play with your friends online aswell as thousands of people from around the globe. From the start of the game you have all the 40 characters available meaning that you need not unlock any characters like previous games. I think its to allow all people to have all the characters unlocked so they playing online is as fair as can be, however I did enjoy unlocking characters - gave a new purpose of playing the game.
The gameplay is as usual, they have kept the modes that have kept this game in the ranks for the last decade or so - arcade, survival, VS and team battle modes. Controls are still the same, move your character using the d-pad, although you can also use the left stick. There are 16 different backgrounds to play in, including a field of sheep who get bounced about if they're in the way (funny). There's also place where you'll be falling through the floor. Win money allows you to customise your character but you'll need a lot of it for the full outfit and funky haircut or "aura" even. There are some great customised fighters online.
Online modes involve ranked and unranked matches though there are connection problems from time to time and don't be surprised if your opponent suddenly disappears just as you are beating him/her on the final round. You can see your opponents ranking before you play a game, but if you come across a heavily customised character then you're in for a game as they have played the game many times before. Popular characters online seem to be Bryan, Hwoarang, Steve and the irritating Eddy Gordo.
I would recommend this game to most people, but be warned playing the computer can get boring from time to time, so buy this game if you have friends or family who also play tekken - as this where the fun gets started. You can buy this game for a good price during this christmas period, so I'd say purchase when you can.
Summary: Tekken keeps itself going
