    not really fuck scores.scores can’t be trusted man. I love Tekken but its a rental for sure. Yea everything has improved but its not leaps and bounds. We waited this long for a Tekken and it should be better.

    If you respect anything I say then rent first. If you love it then buy.

    I’ll give it a go. I haven’t played a Tekken game for a long time, but I reckon this one’s worth a shot.

    I’ve owned all the Tekkens except Tag and 4, out of all of them I felt 3 was the best. The first two were good increments of the game and the third perfected it. After that I think the games just became prettier versions of the last game with too many new characters added and random old ones removed. I think they were all missing something extra which made Tekken 3 such a joy to play though.

    I’m waiting for Tekken 6 to install to my 360 at the moment (it’s going quite slowly). Hopefully every third game is good?

    I always thought tekken tag woould have been a rash job for the PS2 release but it was my favourite I played. I didnt play eith 4 or 5 though but I think I’ll try this one. Mind you I still wouldn’t mind a 360 pad with a proper d-pad. why has no 3rd party done one at least?

    Tekken was always OK with a pad, wasn’t it? I remember all the Tekken 3 lot used to play it on normal PS pads. It was always Street Fighter people used to insist on playing with a stick.

    I’m sold on this, by the way. I’ll see if I can get a copy next week. Gamertag/PSN – patlike.

    Well it’s still more than ok on pads . it’s not like the game ever had lots of quarter circle etc moves .
    Arguably some moves or steps are easier on sticks . But it probably mostly boils down to you being an arcade tekken player or usually played at home on pads .

    On another related topic ,

    I dont get why so many people are always so hard on tekken about it being more of the same . In the modes and extra department alone , Tekken has always done so much .. tekken force , bowling , volley , and this time a complete campaign mode . Only Soul calibur , Blazlbue and a few mortal kombat have even tried that so far .

    And when it comes to the core gameplay . Well arent all franchise the same ? Asides from mortal kombat who constantly reinvent itself , mostly with gimmicks to sell (like the DC part of late) , or spin-offs , pretty much everyone follow their same safe , true and tried routine , with a few tweaks once every game .

    So indeed aside from adding new moves and characters, and shallow new mechanics , they can’t really do anything else that would change entirely the franchise . At least they wont till it works and till the silent majority doesnt speak .

    and that’s ok , it’s tekken we wanna play , not doa , soul calibur , or virtua fighter with tekken characters .

    Fucking *awesome* game, well worth the purchase if you’re into accessible one-on-one fighters.
