Tekken: Dark Resurrection's story is the same as last year's Tekken 5 for the PS2, discounting the three new (and returning) characters introduced in this version, and each story path comes complete with their own hand-drawn story introductions, in-game-engine cut scenes, and CG endings, but that is not where the meat of the game is.
The meat of the game, is, of course, the fighting engine. Tekken 5.2 (as it is oft called) boasts newly-enhanced balancing of all of its characters, as well as new tweaks to the engine that improve the wake-up game considerably, allowing more attacks to hit grounded opponents, but still giving the groundee the opportunity to defend.
The main point, however, of all fighting games is to play multiplayer with other people, and Namco excels at this. They include ad-hoc mode to great effect, with little lag between two PSP systems. They even allow for both multi-disc and download play! What more could Tekkeners on the go ask for?
Well, how about an enhanced single-player experience, with a smarter (albeit still, at times, annoying) AI system that learns from players all around the world, and, when they connect to Namco's network to update their time attack and other scores, they put their 'ghosts' onto Namco's network for the whole world to download? Yes, that'll do nicely.Read more ›
Dark Resurrection was initially an arcade update to Tekken 5 (originally released in arcades and then, subsequently, on the PS2). The update added some new characters and fixed character balancing issues. Every entry in the Tekken series has pushed the console on which it has appeared to its limits. Tekken: Dark Resurrection continues this tradition by putting most other games to shame. And I don't just mean portable games, ALL games.
So what does this PSP version have over T5 for the PS2? Three extra characters over the T5 roster (which was extremelely robust to begin with), fantastic interactive environments, absolutely stunning in-game and pre-rendered graphics, silky smooth/responsive gameplay, tons of excellent modes both old (the triumphant return of Tekken Bowling!) and new (addicting and challenging Tekken Dojo)... the list goes on and on.
Pretty much any mode you choose to play earns you the currency with which you purchase items to customize your favorite characters' appearances, and money is earned much quicker here than in T5. Plus, you have more items to choose from as well! About the only thing this version doesn't have over T5 are the bonus games (arcade versions of T1-3, The Devil Within, etc), but I get the feeling that if Namco could have squeezed anything else onto that little ole UMD they would have.
If I had to say one negative thing about this game, it would have to be what seems to be the most common complaint I've read about. Yes, the ultra-fine precision needed to pull of some of the more demanding moves is a little more difficult on the PSP than the PS2's DualShock.Read more ›
The graphics are beautiful, and the loading times are very fast. The game moves at a fast pace, so be ready. It's also a difficult game. The story mode get's progressively more challenging with each new opponent. It's hard to just mash the buttons and be proclaimed the winner. You'll have to take some time to memorize the moves and execute them flawlessly, which can sometimes be a challenge on the PSP, but not without reward.
To conclude, if you have a PSP, and if you have a remote interest in fighting games, you willl NOT be disappointed with this purchase.
