Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

A near arcade-perfect conversion of one of the best fighting games of all time, Tekken 3 is an essential PlayStation title that belongs in every gamer's library--especially now at its bargain-basement Greatest Hits price. While the one-on-one combat here is essentially two-dimensional, highly detailed 3-D character graphics and a roaming camera viewpoint give this game a distinctive 3-D look. Gameplay is fast and furious, with simple controls that are easy to learn. This game also allows for special moves and combos to be executed with relative ease. Various modes of play are available, including "Tekken Force", a one-player side-scrolling brawler.

Chock full of goodies--most of which remain hidden until certain requirements are met--Tekken 3 rewards players' persistent endeavours with secret characters, alternate costumes and yet another mode of play, Tekken ball, a bizarre variation on volleyball. Also, beating the game's arcade mode allows players to view a beautifully animated epilogue that's specific to whichever fighter they used. And once you've seen one, you just have to see them all. --Joe Hon

Manufacturer's Description

They said it couldn't be done.... they were WRONG! Tekken 3 is coming to PlayStation with even more play modes than before, improved graphics and over 1,000 thundering attack moves! Heihachi and Kazuya lock horns for the final time to decide who is the head of the Mishima Financial Empire. Tremendous wealth and power to go to the winner. For the loser, a burial in a volcano crater. But for the greedy Heihachi, even this is not enough as he prepares for global domination. And then, a baby is born... Fifteen years later a secret excavation by Heihachi's Tekken Force unearth's an unusual find. In their final communiqué with Heihachi, his men report the sighting of a mysterious "God of Fight". Heihachi immediately heads to the scene aboard his private jet but upon arrival he finds only scattered corpses. The wheel in his head starts to spin... "who is responsible? What kind of thing could do this?" Within weeks, strange disappearances occur throughout the world. The baby is now a teenager. He seeks out Heihachi and introduces himself as Jin Kazama, only son of Jun. His family have been wiped out by this "God of Fight" and now Jin wants revenge. Upon hearing Jin's story, Heihachi is sure that the "God of Fight" must thrive on the spirits of the strong. He decides to resurrect the "King of the Ironfist Tournament" one more time in order to lure the God of Fight into a trap. Jin enters his 19th year. Four years of tuition under Heihachi Mishima have prepared him for his meeting with destiny. The tournament is about to begin...

Tekken 3 was a bold progression from Tekken 2, and in many respects, was the real turning point in the series regarding gameplay. Controls were tighter, gameplay was more fluid and seamless. The visuals were more detailed and colour resolution superior. Tekken 3 was king, and firmly established 3D fighting games at a time when 2D fighters were wholely dominant. Where Tekken 3 disappointed me was in the departure from Tekken 2's broody, ethereal atmosphere. This is strongly reflected in the soundtrack. Tekken 3 has it's own unique 'feel' and is, in my opinion, the most complete chapter in the series lineage and the last to keep the story intact. The story is deep and engrossing, gameplay is flawless, graphics were stunning in it's day, great cast of characters with a wide range of styles, very accessible but with depth for more advanced players. If you haven't played this game then you really owe it to yourself to purchase it. A significant title in it's genre, I can't recommend it enough, five stars.

I got a copy of this when it was first released - about '98 - and maybe I'm just stuck in my ways but I still think its the best. The moves are really fluid and the response time is split second. Before I encountered this I wrongly thought fighters were button-bashers only. However, this has a phenomenal amont of combo's to memorise and once you do you can pull of some awesome moves. Learning as many of a character's moves as you can is important as while one move may work on Yoshimitsu it won't on Nina. There's loads of fighters, someone to suit everyone, each with a different and authentic style. Ranging from karate to street fighting, Tae kwon do, judo, aikido and even wrestling to name but a few. My favourite is Jin. Well, he's got some lovely pants.
I like this game so much I still haven't got Tag or 4. At the present price this game is a bargain.

What was going down in 1998? Well, France won the World Cup, giving Brazil a good spanking in the process; Coronation Street's Deidre found herself in the slammer for no reason; and the music (contrary to what the tasteless media today suggests) was prance-around-the-room excellent...Oh, and Tekken 3 was released on the legendary PlayStation console.

The story is not exactly deep, but I will mention it anyway. A fair number of years have passed since the events of The King Of Iron Fist Tournament 2, and a group of new young hungry fighters are gearing up to test their might in the KOIFT3. These young fighters are joined by a handful of veterans from the first two Tekken games; and each and every one of them has a reason for getting their fists' bloodied; their ribs' cracked; and every strand of hair on their heads pushed out of place. It's a tough life being a Tekken character.

Your initial choice of fighters stands at the ten mark. That group includes Eddie Gordo, the hip-looking Brazilian Capoeira fighter who presents more flailing legs than a fifty strong cast of Irish river dancers; Paul Phoenix, the leather clad biker brawler whose hair looks a chain sawed tree stump; and Jin Kazama, a muscular martial artist whose strong moves and boy band looks would make him the poster boy for the Tekken series from this game onwards.

Each and every one of the fighters has both an image and a fighting style that'll satisfy even the fussiest of fighting fans; and the level of charisma the characters left off as you play through the different modes is strong too. That's not something you can simply create or teach. Either you have it or you don't.

First of all this game was one of my favorites when growing up so it already hits a few heartstrings when playing but i never remembering it being so good!

If anyone is looking for the high point in the Tekken series this is it, it has fluid fighting a sharp controls. While the game can be played easily it can take years to master all of the in depth combos and ( my personal favorite ) the vast array of Multi-Part Grab Combos ( I'll leave a link of some of them below ).

All in all i find this game the jewel of the Tekken series and its memorable character design and ( for the time ) great cut scenes this game for me tick's all the boxes :)
