Yeah I saw this, I'm kinda disappointed with the overall rating but that's ok, it's probably the highest score T6 will get.. I have heard from many sources that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are practically identical, the only differences being the loading times for PS3 are a little longer, and they say the 360 netcode is a little stronger...There's some 360 love for ya

I don't understand how the story is hard to follow? He simply MUST be an idiot if he thinks you can button-mash and *Gasp* Win?

Well I agree with you on the story thing, if you know the back stories it shouldn't be a big deal, but I think he's right about a button masher being able to pick up a controller and fair pretty well against intermediate players. I can mash my way to victories against more skilled opponents with characters such as; Hwoarang, Eddy/Christie, Steve... I understand that I'm not a beginner to Tekken, and I understand the basics, but I think his main point was the different levels of play, and how rare it is to see a game where hardcore fans and people hearing about Tekken for the first time, can both have great fun with the game, and feel the need to get more involved with the in-depth strategy and physics of such a complex fighter.

Well, I understood that as well.

But, button-mashing with Yoshimitsu? : 0

You won't get very far ; )

Indeed you are right about that, especially not in T6!!!

Its rather interesting that I just read this post directly after playing some Tekken 5 on my PS2. But lemme back up a little bit....

I went over to my Moms place earlier today where my little brother currently resides. I brought Tekken Tag along with me, he has Tekken 5. We played each title for about 45 minutes each.... and MAN!! Tekken Tag holds up incredibly well as I was still kicking some challenging AI ass as if I played this consistently from its release (The last time I played Tag was about a year ago!!). Seriously, if you want some really good defensive practice, I HIGHLY recommend that you play the AI on Ultra Hard with your favorite Team (Yoshi/Jin for me). You will be schooled, but not in a absurdedly cheap sort of way that the PSP seems to have such a good time doing.

And playing Tekken 5.... let me just say that it was awesome to play with an actual PS2 CONTROLLER rather than the Hand-Cramping PSP. But as far as the AI goes.... its amazingly horrid, espically for Ultra Hard. I was playing against Hwoarang in the Pirates Cove for about 10 minutes in Practice Mode, and I had 1700+ points of damage. The AI had.... 270. Yuck. The PSP's Ultra Hard is far more challenging, but uneven. Tag holds the best AI thus far, so Im curious to see how the AI in Tekken 6 is.

While playing my Brother, he had a good handle on controlling his character without no mashing. I brutalized him as he is not an avid Tekken Lunatic as I am. However (the point of this post), I borrowed 5 to bring home to tide me over for the next two days. I hook it up and my Girl and I play for a bit.... she was mashing like crazy and managed to steal a few rounds from me!! So yes, an absolute newb can mash away and get somewhere, but not very far. It was funny watching her just hit all of the face buttons and seeing Christie actually do something intertesting. In the end, Yoshi prevailed!! WHEE!!

Is it Tuesday yet?!?!

I´m kinda glad about being able to do well without having to waste endless hours of practice for that game.
First of all, it gets boring after a while and then I totally would lack time.
It´s not like school days anymore...

And in the end it´s just a game to have fun with for a while.

Btw, this is also the reason why I hate online shooters -.-"
You go online and you are nothing more than an easy kill for those kinda ppl who spend days and nights playing those games.
Annoying ^^"

That's the same reason I hate online shooters!!! There should be a place for hardcore players and casual players, to even out the odds.... I remember when Tekken 4 came out, I had been out with my friends all night and they were all drinking heavily, most of them passed out at the house we were partying at, only one of my friends came back to my house to sleep on my couch. I started playing Tekken when I got home and my wasted friend seemed interested, so he picked up a controller and joined in.. I picked Yoshi and he picked random...He was so drunk he couldn't walk, but he managed to beat me four times in a row!!! It totally destroyed my self confidence, especially when he thought he was the one losing, and I actually had to tell him that he won.. So I practiced like crazy and played him when he woke up the next day, I smoked him over and over again until he gave up... He didn't remember playing the night before and seemed very pleased with himself when I told him about it...Drunkard's luck I guess...
