What were the main points from the Tekken 6 review.

So very tempted to snaffle it but aint played a Tekken game properly since 4.

Zak McKracken... there's a name from my past. One of my favourite games on the Amiga, and you almost never see it mentioned these days when people list the LucasArts adventures...

From the review..

If you've played a Tekken game you know exactly what this delivers. That's no bad thing, and in concert with what has changed outwardly might just about make it a must buy...

It's Tekken, then, same as it ever was, though with age has come generosity and - more importantly - the freedom to laugh at itself.

The opening paragraph from the review sums it up quite nicely I think...

Though his plumbing skills are rarely tested, Mario has often shown himself to be an expert architect. The games, both in 2D and 3D, are exemplars of pinpoint platforming, worlds constructed to lock perfectly with the parabola of each jump, the traction and momentum of Italian shoes. But there's something else, too - a rare joie de vivre - found in Mario's effusive yelps in the irrepressible jollity of the world, and most of all, in the constant, enthusiastic invention. To put it more colloquially, Mario at his best has magic. And it's missing from NSMB Wii.


The general feeling is that 4 player's OK, but if it's a good Mario game you're after you'd be best to wait to see how Galaxy 2 turns out.

Jesus Christ. I actually uninstalled my copy of 'OpFlash 2' last night I found it so depressing to have on my HDD for a moment longer. And yet the console version scores 1 less than what is arguably meant to be the best PS3 game released to date, and 2 more than a game that has had vastly favourable reviews? What would they give the PC version then? A 10!?

I know they are only numbers but I seriously always doubted Edges credibility when it came to review scores anyway, now I know they are just fucking nutters.

I've heard that OpFlap2 is good. From my only game-nerd friend IRL.

Game-nerds IRL never have any taste though let's face it.

Uncharted 2 deserves a 10 if anything does.

It's just an opinion and as long as the score is backed up in the text I don't see what the big problem is.
