After the completion of The King of Iron First Tournament 4, a fierce battle between father and son unfolded at Mishima Heihachi, his grandfather-but spares both Kazuya and Heihachi`s lives in honor of his mother who loved peace. While many presume the death of Heihachi Mishima will end the reign of Mishima Zaibatsu, an announcement is made for the fifth king of Iron First Tournament, with an unknown replacement to Heihachi leading the organization. The fight begins.

Well Tekken is back after a slightly dissapointing run on the ps2 so far. Tekken 5 though more than makes up for the poor Tekken 4 it is groundbreaking and totally new for the beat em up genre which, lets be honest needed some new life.
So, what makes Tekken 5 so great ? Where do I start.Firstly the graphics are amazing,matching those of the fantastic Soul Calibur 2, clothes and hair flow beautifully and the characters are gorgeously detailed.Secondly the gameplay surpasses even Tekken 3 and Soul Calibur 2, making it the most fluid and exciting fighting game to date.
There are also lots of modes in Tekken 5. The usual Time Attack,Story,Practice,Survival,VS and Team Battle modes are all there but there are a couple of new ones. Arcade is a fantastic new mode lets you build up your own character through the rankings and since the opponents are customised it makes up for the lack of online play, sort of anyway. Customise mode is also good as you can change your characters appearance. Finally arcade versions of Tekken 1,2,and 3 are all playable making this game an essential purchase.
There are also 30 characters in Tekken 5 compared to the 19 in Tekken 4. Old favourites like Jin,Heihachi,Julia,Nina and Yoshimitsu all return, as well as unexpected comebacks from Wang,Bruce and Mokujin.There are also 3 new characters to get to grips with, Raven, Feng and Asuka adding 3 new fighting styles.
The locations are also superbly detailed and the wonky surfaces in Tekken 4 have thankfully,gone. This is most definately the best Tekken so far and was well worth the wait.

I ahve always been a fan of the Tekken series, and this game is certainly no exception.
It seem here that Tekken has gone back to it's roots, reintroducing some of the older characters (Ganryu was an interesting surprise, and Baek a welcome old friend...)
The arcade mode is brilliant, no longer a dull copy of the story mode, but an opportunity to rate your skills and rise through the ranks to eventually become a tekken master.
There is also now an opportunity to gain gold and alter the character's appearance, with many comedy moments.
The Devil Within (a Tekken Force style minigame) is a little disappointing, with Jin being the only playable character, and the fighting style much simplified in comparison to previous Tekken Force game modes. However, it is an essential tool if you want to get cheap visual upgrades for your character.
This is more than made up for however by the Archive history settings, where you can play Tekken 1 to 3, and also Starblade (after unlocking the extra), a spacey shoot-em-up.
The character's move lists have all improved, and they have thankfully removed the switch-style throw from Tekken 4. One thing they did get rid of from Tekken 4 however is the few seconds of movement before the round starts, which I always found very handy for getting into set stances (particularly for Lei).
So Overall:
Graphics: - 10/10
Gameplay - 11/10
Longevity - 10/10 - the arcade and customise settings really improve this, adding incentive to mastering every character
Buy this game, you will not be disappointed...

My son and I have been fans of Tekken right from the original, through Tekken 2 and 3 (on the Play Station 1), we seemed to have missed 4 (although reading the reviews here it looks like we didn't miss much) and this weekend we took on the new challenges of Tekken 5.
When spending £30 plus on a game you do expect something special for your money and I'm more than happy to report that this game brings that and plenty more besides.
It's been a long time complaint of the Tekken series that you cannot design and adapt the various warriors, well in this one you can! Hundreds of combinations of costumes and extras.
The fight scenes are visually stunning with some great animated backdrops, and I love the exploding floor surfaces when one warrior bites the dust. The characters are absolutely fantastic, both in their movements and their design. The characters you know and recognise from previous games and been extended and improved and the new characters are an interesting addition. The punches and kicks and the combination attacks look superb and range from the easy to the tricky to master. Very challenging. One final mention for the absolutely gorgeous looking female fighters! Fantastic!

Ever since Tekken 3 graced us it has been a disappointing time for Tekken fans. Tag Tournament was just a graphics improvement and Tekken 4 lost originality. I had my doubts about Tekken 5 but after playing it I never looked back.
The graphics are absolutely outstanding. It's as if you are playing an Xbox game. The fighters are superbly detailed and the background effects are fantastic. This also gives me more confidence that Resident Evil 4 will still look great when it is released on the PS2. The stages also look sublime, whith a mixture of enclosed and open arenas opposed to Tekken 4 when the arenas were just too small. They are also interactive so hitting the ground or wall causes it to crack or break which adds to the effect.
There are 3 new characters: Raven, a ninja working for a secret cooperation, Asuka, who uses Kazama style martial arts and Feng Wei, a chinise kempo artist who killed his master. This adds to the roster of returning characters from previous games such as Baek Do San, Bryan Fury and Anna Williams. This also adds to old favourites like Kazuya, Paul, King and Law.
The best thing about Tekken 5 is that it has gone back to basics. Instead of trying to get you tactical in Tekken 4 it has gone back to being an all out beat em up like it should be. Namco have learnt it shouldn't try to be something it's not. Some additional features include the Devil Within, an action side story playing as Jin, the ability to fight for money and customise your characters clothing and even Tekken 1,2 and 3 are playable. Sure it won't last long in single player, but it is awsome in multiplayer. Tekken is well and truly back, and with Tekken 6 planned for PS3, it's back with a bang!!!
