Tekken returns in stunning high definition, and this sixth instalment is packed full of features following its success in Japanese arcades. Based on the Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion arcade update, the home computer game versions includes intense gameplay modes, new environments to battle in and the introduction of several new characters to the Tekken series.

Offering the largest line-up the series has seen to date, all of your favourite fighters are present and correct in the sixth King of the Iron Fist tournament. Everyone from Paul Phoenix, Jin Kazama, Heihachi Mishima to Marshall Law, Kuma and Yoshimitsu are available for play, on top of new faces Leo, Lars Alexandersson, Alisa Bosconovitch and NANCY-MI847J to name a few. Each character is different and unique, with the Tekken team ensuring that each and every fighter's moveset doesn't overlap.

You can take the fight online, and customise any character from the roster to your liking before using him or her (or it) for broadband battling. Improvements to the gameplay include more interactive stages, with floors and walls that can be broken to reveal new arenas. A "Rage" system features in the game, and allows players to deal more damage per hit when their vitality is low, providing an equal balance when the chips are down.

On top of the classic arcade modes, you can engage in "Scenario Campaign" which puts you in an adventure mode interspersed with traditional Tekken battles. You can pick up weapons such as poles and gatling guns to aid your quest, and soon you can play this mode co-operatively with a friend.
