Tekken 6 is disappointing. It sucks that the character's story are now in Scenario Mode (similar to Devil Within) instead of the Arcade mode. The Scenario mode is terrible; controlling your character in it sucks. It sucks the story are in this mode. I really enjoyed watching each character's story, but I don't think I will here since that mode is shit. To me, the Devil Within stuff was an unwanted extra. If I want a 3D action game, I'll go play Ninja Gaiden or something. I just want a fighting game. The load times are terrible. I didn't think it was going to bother me, but wow, it takes 10 - 12 seconds to load up a battle. It really gets annoying after a while.
Gameplay is just more of the same. If you liked the past, you'll like this one. The offline modes got boring already; they're mostly the same as Tekken 5. There is this new Ghost mode, but it's just nonstop battles. To be honest, I mainly play Tekken for the arcade mode (stories) and sometimes to have some fun with friends. Now, there's no compelling reason to play the Arcade mode. I'm having fun with the online play though. Had some interesting matches. Haven't had a problem with it yet.
Rent it or wait for a price drop. I have played every Tekken game btw.
How long did you play it ? after the first level you unlock arena which is like arcade mode only with 4 stages instead of 9-10 where each prologue and end movie can be unlocked from. Not only that, but by playing the game regularly you unlock end movies aswell. Sounds to me like you haven't given it a proper chance yet... Though admittedly. Ingame Convos only take place in scenario campaign.
@seraphic. If you haven't played either 4 or 5 it'll play very differently than it did back then. Heck it plays very differently than tekken 5. You just need to adjust a little. I still haven't found out how to do the ultimate move with paul in tekken 6 yet .. but then again I don't really play with him. In the beginning it's easiest to buttom smash with the knowledge that D-pad movement combined with the face buttons create various attacks and that some fighters fight better with their hands and other fight better with their legs.. Depending on their .. Fight Style.
