Im a Tekken Fan and this by far didnt impress me....with what seems to be requirement of downloading more playable toons down to the lack lustered Tagging in and out system down to the final boss fight...this game is much harder. In that respect, hate the lack of Devil Kauzya, and Dr. B but maggically Tiger (only from Tekken 3 and only Eddie from the 70's) and some new Caysee? The Female verison of "King / Armor King" fighter style mixed with Julia...was disappointing.
Fighting the Final Boss mob "Unknown" or as I call it the now Enranged "Jun" It seems Tekken Tag is going to make its one story line based around Unknown, and Jun to explain Jun missing appearance since Tekken 2. Tekken Tag 2 Updated and Graded Unknown giving a small story line to it as well. Unknown battle vs her is very hard...with Maggical Fists, and roots providing more damage pre combo there is still one more trick up the sleeve of Unknown, Its her maggical wind tunnle beat down that K.O.s any tagged in toon making it idealy a 1 on 1 match up in her favor. I think at this stage, the more we demand a reasonable final boss the harder Tekken final bosses become...I mean Devil in Tekken 2 wasnt bad, Tekken 3's wasnt as well but Tekken 6's Azazual Was a rare beat...Id like the creators to take it down to reality again and be reasonable with there final bosses and there tricks. I have more losses from the final boss then any other pair or solo in this game.
The Tekken Team battle have been toyed around with, no long beat you oppt down and once ur on the final fight of the team battle reguardless of where your oppt health was when he tagged out he is granted a full health bar to make a magic come back as the last standing member of his team...something that was a turn off for me as I worked to get his health low, why should I have to do to twice over once he powers up as if it was solo anyhow? plus dont get me started on this Tekken Tag Rage system...
The Rage system newly installed in Tekken 4 or so has a new meaning here in Tekken Tag...no long dose one need to be under 10% to trigger it....just get ur butt kicked until the taged out parnter Health bar triggers then tag in and make quick work of the bad guy your facing!
Overall to many changes that didnt need to happen The Newly over powered Unknown is only the tip of it all...and how the Tekken Tags seem to be making a whole new story line of its own slow going but its own story line to explain what happened to Jun, and just guessing Who might be the new final boss in Tekken 7 that brings Jun back into the fold...Just a thought i may be wrong.… Expand
