Tekken 7 – Review
The best fights are personal
Tekken 7 takes fighting games to a new level. For instance, the classic accessible gameplay is very welcoming to newcomers, which enriches the multiplayer base and the online mode experience. In addition to the great graphics, the added customization option gives the game an extra layer of enjoyment, primarily by collecting resources and winning treasure boxes. Also, the vast roster of characters makes for an endless variation of fights and battles, guaranteeing a longer duration of play possibilities.
Stories left unsaid
Despite the fantastic aspects of the game, Tekken 7 has some disappointing flaws. Undoubtedly the VR mode is useless. Besides being a glorified theater viewer, it doesn’t add anything more to your experience than a headache. Furthermore, the 3D use is a missed opportunity. Admittedly, it is a significant change from the overplayed 2D fighting style. However, the developers of this game could have done so much more with it, especially with the new movement mechanics. Moreover, Tekken fans could be disappointed with the story. Aside from the few characters that get an actual ending, most get nothing but a credits roll after everything is over.
Overall, the negative aspects of Tekken 7 do not dim the light of what makes it great. Although the VR, 3D, and story issues would have made the game even better if resolved, they are only the missing cherry on top of an already great game.
