The Tekken franchise makes its welcome debut on the PSP in Dark Resurrection, giving you the ability to kick some bottom wherever and whenever you want.

Graphically, Tekken Dark Resurrection is a whizz and pushes the PSP to its very limits. With more than 30 customisable characters including new fighters Lili and Dragunov, and fighting across 19 stages, there should be plenty of variation for even the most experienced Tekken fan. All the characters from the arcade version of the game are present, as is Armor King, who makes his long-awaited return to the franchise. In addition to the normal arcade option, there are also several different types of game modes for players to get their teeth into: Time Attack, Gold Rush, Dojo and the option for multiplayer chaos in Ad Hoc Wireless Mode.

As stated previously, old favourites like Arcade Battle are included, as is Story Battle -choose a character and ultimately fight to uncover their past history. Other modes in the game include Tekken Dojo, where gamers must fight their way to the top in a selection of different Dojos until they win the title Tekken Lord. Another feature of Dark Resurrection is the ability to try to beat your previous high score with a choice of three different attack modes: Time Attack - your opponent is not just a fighter but also the clock; Survival - defeat as many foes as possible in one life; and Gold Rush - earn fight money for damage dealt within the time limit. Another mode included is Quick Battle, where you can choose from 1-on-1 battles or team battles against the CPU. Alternatively, it is possible to form a team of up to eight players in team battle mode for an exciting knockout tournament. Also, hone your skills in the all new practice mode which includes tutorials, freestyle training and command training that covers both self-defence and attack.

Continuing on the theme of character customisation first seen in Tekken 5, gamers can create a profile and spend their prize money won from fighting on many different accessories and movie sequences. Dark Resurrection offers gamers twice as many items to purchase than in Tekken 5. Another new element is the ability to check an opposing character's profile before you actually fight them, by reviewing their battle history and high scores.

If you are a Beat 'Em Up fan and PSP-owner, then this game is a must-buy.
