Fighting Edition packs in three epic beat-'em-ups!

Tekken 6 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.

Following a non-canonical storyline that takes place after the events of Tekken 6, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 works almost like a ‘dream match’ maker, with fans being able to play as almost every single character from the franchise.

In total, 59 characters are available to command - including the return of old favourites such as Kunimitsu, Michelle Chang and Prototype Jack from the original Tekken, Angel and Alex from Tekken 2, Tiger Jackson, Forest Law, Dr. Boskonovitch and Ancient Ogre from Tekken 3 and Miharu Hirano, Violet and Combot from Tekken 4.

Combot and Violet, in fact, form the basis of the storyline that runs throughout Tekken Tag Tournament 2. A simulation test of a new version of Combot results in the explosion of a mysterious science facility known as the Fight Lab. So Violet decides to use the other functioning Combot to complete the combat tests that she has prepared. As a result, Combot can be customised in game with the movesets of other characters.

Soulcalibur V – the fifth in the classic beat-em-up series from Namco-Bandai and developer Project Soul - brings the PS3 fighter and brings it hard and fast.

The game starts some 17 years after the events of its predecessor and has brand new characters, as well as seeing the return of old favourites as good once again does battle with evil for the fate of us all. This provides a very respectable 30 playable characters to play, unlock and – of course – to master.

As ever, the SoulCalibur series “eight-way run” system enables true 3D movement during matches, so some really extreme combinations can be used. This 3D movement is also combined with an updated and refined battle system; the updated graphics also enable the gamer to involve themselves in the complex, high-octane action.
