best fighting game of the year

I love tekken the best of any fighting game and tekken 6 is no different. 
 

The Graphics

The graphics are great all the characters look very good and are highly detailed. All besides Paul, his face looks really off to me at least. Some people say the graphics look better with motion blur off, but I say the game looks great either way.
A few of the characters have 3rd costumes that were made by famous manga/anime artists. My favorite is easily jin's third costume that was designed by the folks at CLAMP.

MODES


You can play online ranked and unranked matches. Most people say the online is completely broken but I've played over 40 online matches and only one of them have had any noticeable lag at all. I honestly think I'm going crazy because why is the online working perfectly for me and the people I'm playing with and there is so many people saying they can even play online. 
 
Then you have all standard offline modes arcade, team battle, survival, practice, ghost battle and VS.
 
Lastly there is Scenario Campaign mode, it tells the story of new fighter lars alexanderson. The mode it's self plays like a side scrolling beat-em up but in 3-D not side scrolling. There is over 40 levels of beat-em up goodness and you can play as any fighter you want not just Lars. I really like playing Scenario Campaign it actually gives you someing more than just fighting to do in the game thus makeing it in my opiton actually worth the $60 price tag. Unfortunately I'm the only one that thinks The Scenario Campaign is fun. 
 

In The End


 I think tekken 6 is the best fighting game of the year. If you like tekken you'll either think that too or hate it because of the Scenario Campaign.

    From a pretty hard-core Tekken fan 0

      I have owned every Tekken game made, except the PSP version of Tekken 5.  It has always been my favorite fighting game series, from its core fighting engine to its zany ending movies.  In Tekken 6 everything that has made past Tekken games great is present, plus a lot more.  Are there problems?  Sure—and the network issues are particularly disappointing—but the overall package is a step above other fighters.        First of all, the core fighting mechanic is as solid as ever.  Tekken is ea...

    Late Bird Review: Tekken 6 Bloodline Rebellion 0

                I have been a fan of Tekken since the first game came out. The similar 3D fighting competitor, VirtuaFighter, never really grabbed my attention much and I constantly gravitated toward Tekken whenever I saw it on a home console or in the arcade. My favorite renditions of Tekken (3, 4, and Tag Tournament) make me hopeful that the designers learned from their mistakes in 5 and gave the game a fresh style and gameplay it needed for the jump to the next generation of console gaming.  ...
