First Tekken 6 Console Review in PLAY Magazine

The latest issue of Play Magazine has an exclusive review of Tekken 6– the first printed review to see light. Frequent poster Bob has generously provided a look at the review here, here and here. The game has received a pretty high score of 94%.

It’s a nice writeup, even if there’s some partisan grumbling from the reviewer complaining about the game being not exclusive to PS3 anymore, and some unnecessary remarks that players won’t really care much about the detailed story and cutscenes told in the new Scenario Campaign mode. For the most part though, the review is glowing, citing the game’s excellence in terms of graphics, gameplay and the immense roster of playable characters. It also compares Tekken 6 against it’s rival Virtua Fighter 5, mentioning how Tekken one-ups the competition by being accessible to new players as well as being deep and layered.

From Play Magazine: “There are flaws that hurt the experience, but nothing, nothing, stops Tekken 6 from being an intense, tactical and utterly brilliant fighting game, perfect for anyone with even a fleeting interest in the genre.”

We should expect more reviews to pop up, both on print and online, in the near future, as well as an announcement of the game going Gold (signifying the game being DONE and now entering the mass production stage). SD-Tekken already has a review copy, apparently, so previews and an eventual review will appear there as well soon.
