Summary

While offering only incremental upgrades to the formula, Tekken 6 is a worthy successor to Dark Resurrection and ultimately one of the best entries in this venerable franchise to date.

We like

  • The superb fighting mechanics
  • The heaps of game modes unlockable goodies on offer
  • The sprawling and diverse character line-up

We dislike

  • The dodgy Scenario Campaign
  • The lag during online matches
  • The load times
