If you're into 3D fighting games, this game will meet your high expectations and exceed them. This game sets a new standard for 3-D fighters on a portable system. I've been dreaming of a portable version of Tekken for a long time now and there have been disappointments in the past. For example, the tekken Gameboy advance title was lacking in many areas... especially since it was not really 3-D but only 2-D sprite driven and simulated 3-D. This game "Tekken Resurrection" however is the real deal and has finally made that dream of mine into a reality. The graphics will astound you and even the background graphics are amazing and are truly 3-D. It's really the first game on the PSP that makes you feel like you're playing a portable PS2 and using the PSP to it's full potiential.
Pros: Incredible graphics, great gameplay, and all the moves and combos you expect. Many characters to play and playable right away (no unlocking needed). Everything you expect from Tekken and more.
Cons: End movies (when you beat the game) could be much better.
Conclusion: If you think most Psp games out there are crap, you're right. But this is a Diamond among coals. Buy this game and it may shift your perspective of PSP games and you'll see the true potiental of the PSP and what it can do. Let's hope there are more and more games like this for the PSP in the future.
