Tekken 6





Tekken 6 Tekken 6


Tekken 6 is the latest console installment, of the famous arcade main stay of the same name. As Tekken continues to build its legacy with the Tekken faithful, it also has a certain attainability to those new to the Tekken franchise.  Hard-core Tekken fans will find the controls and gameplay similar to the previous games. For those unfamiliar with the Tekken franchise, it is 3D side view fighting game. The emphasis of the game is hand-to-hand combat. The deepest Tekken line-up to date includes all the fan favorites and some new characters for this release.

Newcomers to the franchise will find it easy to pick up the controller and join in the fighting frenzy. The four face buttons are each assigned to a different limb. So it is relatively easy to punch and kick when first getting started. As you play more, combos become more effective in fighting against the computer as you get deeper into the game, and against other players. Each character has their own fighting styles and moves, so the combinations at your disposal are almost limitless.

The game modes in Tekken 6 include Arcade, Time Trials, Story Mode, Team Mode and more. The Story mode is relatively weak and uninspiring, but that is not the main focus of Tekken 6 – but rather the one-on-one fighting.  The replay value for Tekken 6 comes from the various game modes and all the unlockables that can be obtained. One of my favorite modes was the Versus mode – against another person. This allows you and some friends to select your favorite characters and see who has the best fighting skills (or fastest fingers).

The graphics in Tekken are good, but not great. Some of the environments lack attention to detail (water for instance seems unreal).  The character design, however, are very well done. The close-up shots of several characters look almost photo-realistic. And with the realism comes several of the biggest issues regarding the Family Friendly Factor. Several of the female characters are presented with revealing outfits that leave little to the imagination. Other characters resemble skeletons and devils (one is even named Devil Jin). Keep in mind that when playing with a friend, the characters can be selected according to your preference and those questionable characters do not have to be used.

I am not fond of the fighting when it includes men beating women – even if it is a fantasy fighting game. This is my biggest issue with Tekken 6. The violence of the game is realistic, but not gory. You will hear the grunts and moans from the fighting matches. The music soundtrack definitely fits this genre of game, and even provides an eerie sense during some of the matches. I specifically recall getting goose bumps from the soundtrack during my final match during my play through the game.

Tekken 6 carries a “Teen” rating, and that is exactly how I would recommend this game. But even parents of teens should use caution when considering Tekken 6. If a family is into martial arts and wants to take a look at a video game, this may be a game to consider. I would suggest parents to play with their teens in order to discuss the topics that will definitely come up – modesty, violence, revenge and fighting. These are all topics teens deals with on a daily basis, so addressing them over a video game could be a good tool for parents. Tekken 6 is fun, but only for the right audience.
