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. 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 is specific to the individual fighter 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 a thousand 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...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best fighter ever? 20 Jun. 2008
By Paul McNamee TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite what Namco developers say, there really hasn't been much improvement made in the Tekken system since Tekken 3. While newer installments have better graphics and more characters, the third perfected the form that two helped define. Notice how I fail to mention the stepping stone of the original? That's because its awful to look at, awful to play, awful to think about and awful to bring up in the bedroom or at a funeral. None of the newest characters are as interesting, popular or fun to play as Hwoarang, Xiaoyu or Jin Kazama were back in the day. Both options for the music are excellent, the endings are great, the game is funny as hell and the story is the best in years. Tekken 3 really excels in contemporising the series. While 1 and 2 were quite rooted in mythology while being set in the modern day, this game really takes things into the now (well, the now of a decade ago!) in terms of backgrounds and the rock/techno soundtrack, much more consistently effective than the OTT Euro-dance of previous installments. The inclusion of Tekken Force helps Tekken 3 stand out from the crowd as well. The inclusion of a scroller WITHIN an arcade fighter is another reason why this game was so fresh. Later installments of Force were never as good (or as grippingly obsessive) and where did we end up? Death By Degrees. And don't get me started on how brilliant Tekken Ball is.

I find Tekken Tag Tournament to be a good successor to this game, even if its essentially the Mortal Kombat Trilogy of Tekken; better graphics, complete roster, nothing new in terms of gameplay. Tekken 3 is for my money, the best straightforward beat em up ever made, and although I'm not fond of saying such things, it's impact can still be felt today. While it may not have the depth of its sister franchise (Soul Blade and Calibur), its as perfect as a non-weapon fighter can get.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fighting game you'll never master - endless! 9 Sept. 2000
By N Tayor
It seemed that when Tekken 1 first hit the arcades in around '94, Namco had already lost the battle, falling behind such hits as Virtua Fighter from Sega or Capcom's Street Fighter. Admittedly, Namco had indeed lost the graphical battle from the start but what it had already made up for that with the brilliant gameplay. Now though, Tekken is the world's leading beat 'em up and Tekken 3 is by far the best of the series. The most amazing visuals ever seen in a computer game and completely fluid and fast gameplay top it up for Tekken 3. Telling the story of 19 years after the almost just as brilliant Tekken 2, Tekken 3 also tells an exciting story of love and loathing in a action-packed fighting world. The system is very similar, with the buttons controlling a certain limb of a character (by far the best fighting system to date)and the actual game options are no different. The usual arcade mode, vs, team battle, survival, time attack and practice all make a return but an addition is the fantastic Tekken Force Mode, a 2D scrolling beat 'em u, similar to the like of Streets of Rage except with four levels as you go along, defeating the Tekken Force army. Another outrageous edition is the Tekken Ball Mode - a mode whre beating the hell out of your opponent is not the idea. It's brilliantly addictive and adds extra life in to the game. There are many characters on offer in Tekken 3, each one of them with many different moves that you'll never master. In fact, there's so much in Tekken 3 that you really will never maste it. You will try, you really will but only going without any sleep for a year will get you close to mastering it. And with two players, its a never ending story. This a game that you must buy but like games like Final Fantasy 7, be prepared for a challenge and alot of lost time!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best of the best 5 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
I think that this game is, well there are no words to describe how good this games is. you start with about ten characters I have unlocked all of them so I can't remember how many you start with! but you end up with about twenty, the graphics are brillient for a game of its age. the game modes are superb as well, you have got survival mode where you have to battle through a ton of enemies bash a boss and then advance to the next level all within a time limit!! (i found this part of the game the most difficult part) Then there is the arcade mode like in most fighting games you
battle ten charictars and after going through that nine times you unlock most of the charictars apart from two. another add on is thwe time trial
mode where you have to battle ten characters as fast as you can. there is a two player feature as well where you and your mate bash each other to bits to the death! last but by no means least is the practice mode where you dp just what it says pratice moves holds punches kicks and try to figure out the secret moves that you are not told
on the moves list. with all these things put together tekken 3 is still the best fighting game
around even though a few will dissagree 99.9 out of the hundred will say the same as me. It is simply the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron fisted combat 17 Sept. 2014
By A2Y
GRAPHICS & SOUND
The introductory FMV sequence is mind blowing' here we are given a brief glimpse of all the characters through a variety expertly choreographed sequences. The menus retain an arcade look, simplistic in design, but very easy to navigate. The character select screen oozes style and tight design; character images look fantastic and highly detailed. In-game character models look excellent; every single one is carefully crafted and moulded with an impressive polygon count. Standout character designs would have to be the newly added Ogre, a towering green beast who doesn‘t look too pleasant at all. Yoshimitsu makes a very welcome return. his cyber ninja outfit looking even more spectacular than ever. There are so many different levels to choose from, the carnival stage and Heihachi’s palace were definitely the most memorable locations.

Character animations are another high point, individual fighting styles look extremely realistic and movement is just as fluid. Lei Wulong can switch between four different fighting styles, the drunken style is hilarious to watch and extremely fun to put into practice. The camera work is terrific when panning in close to the gameplay, this is when you execute a grapple move, and the camera angle changes to a cinematic view to show the carnage. The soundtrack is incredible; a mix of Japanese rock and techno beats sync perfectly with the fighting mayhem. Sound effects are amazing, every injury-inducing blow is sure to thunder through your speakers.

There are some large character creations, which cause the game engine some stress and become difficult to render on screen.

GAMEPLAY
The controls are extremely responsive and strafing around opponents is a lot smoother in action.
