Tekken 6 is evenly divided into two parts. There’s the traditional, kick-ass fighting mode and a new campaign mode that is just plain awful. The campaign feels like a really crummy beat ‘em up. The only reason people are playing this mode online is to unlock achievements. But here’s the worst part: any items you collect in the campaign can only be equipped on the character you used with the costume you used. Why the same costume?! The whole thing is ridiculous, but as soon as you switch over to the versus mode, Tekken feels like an entirely different product. This is a really great, really great-looking fighter with more characters than I know what to do with. And it’s not like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat where you need to memorize button combos in order to spew fire or fling shurikens. Experienced players will certainly find their own combos that work for them, but it’s really just about blocking at the right time and countering when appropriate. And that’s all I need from a fighter.
