Although beginners can get by in Tekken 6 by mashing buttons, the real fun comes from learning the game's intricate sub-systems and developing a sense of the mind games that play out about between two skilled opponents. Tekken 6 has a lot to offer, including a massive roster, refined gameplay, plenty of modes and a smooth Ad Hoc multiplayer experience.

If you already own Tekken 6 for consoles, the PSP version is just more of the same. Then again, it is an excellent port and will give you plenty of time to practice while on the road, so it just might be worth that extra investment.

Presentation
Far superior load times when compared to the console version. Optional install is a welcome feature.

Graphics
While a noticeable step down from the console version, this is still a great looking PSP game. Character models look and move beautifully.

7.5
Sound
Decent tunes mix with an odd combination of numerous languages. Characters speak in English, Japanese and Chinese. How do they understand each other?!

8.5
Gameplay
Approachable, but still a very deep game with a steep learning curve for those interested in mastering a character or two. Works wonderfully on the PSP.

Lasting Appeal
Mastering characters takes a very long time, and there are plenty of items to purchase while you do so.
