Tekken: Dark Ressurection – Review

Thanks to the wizards at Bandai Namco, PSP owners can add one more stellar game to the list. Debatably better than the PS2's outstanding Tekken 5, Dark Resurrection is a reworking of the same material with a flawless technical presentation, two worthwhile new characters, and enough extras and options to make it a must-own for PSP players.
