What a load of trash!
I've been a Tekken fan since the first game came out all those years ago, and I've loved each one of them until this rubbish. I held off playing the game for awhile after I heard everyone I know slam the game, but I eventually picked it up, and played it...
1. The story is dreadful. It is way too short, and there is barely any content to keep you coming back. You spend most of the story watching cutscenes, or listening to some guy's voiceover, but when you do actually get down to the gameplay, it's just a wave level with a boss at the end, its bad and boring. Remember the story in Tekken 6? Now that was pretty good. Not only is it not a compelling story, but it leaves so many points unsolved. The story between Kazuya and Heihachi has been around since the beginning, and they did not close that story well at all! What went on here?
2. The Arcade mode. This was my personal favourite thing about Tekken, being able to play different characters through the arcade mode, and get a little story at the end. Does that happen here? Nope. Instead you get 5 levels of fights! Five levels?! It used to be almost double that, and there is no story at the end. Making the whole thing pointless. Instead we get a "character chapter" I think its called, and these are way too short, and are a waste of time.
Despite my hate for this game, it isn't all that bad, the graphics are great, the soundtrack is pretty good also. It is also good that each character is balanced, and none feels overly powerful. I also liked the customisation side to the game, and applaud the developers for not taking advantage of this and blasting it with miscrotransactions. But the the exlusion of some characters from the in game ones, was ridiculous. Really you didn't have Lei Wulong in the original line up? But online mode is alright I suppose.
I really did not like this game at all, as a massive Tekken fan, this was such a disappointment. When the next game comes out, they better improve on these mistakes, because if they don't this franchise will die.
