    The King of 3D fighting is back: Tekken 7 is such a great entry to the series. Gameplay-wise is brilliant, its graphics are stunning and the available roster is satisfying. One of the best fighting titles out there.

    It's hard to criticize Tekken 7 for skimping on the offline content when the fighting and the feel for the game are this good. I applaud Harada-san and his team for sticking to the basics and believing in what they're doing, only letting their guard down to let the ridiculously embarrassing story mode slip in. It comes down to a question of Western abundance versus Japanese purism whether Tekken 7 hits the sweet spot. I know I will vouch for the latter any day over superfluous frills. Tekken 7 is the most fun and exhilarating I've had with the fighting games in years and I have pretty much played them all. Virtua Fighter 3 might be forever etched in my heart as my favorite beat 'em up but Tekken 7 is the best these days offer. There are fighting games. Then there's Tekken. The king is back.

    TEKKEN 7 is well thought-out and produced — to the level of awe. It punches the stereotype of simplistic arcade fighters right in the face, and establishes itself as the gold standard that will be difficult to unseat for quite a while.

    Even with the game's increased emphasis on multiplayer over single-player content, Tekken 7 remains a fun fighting game experience. The core mechanics are as tight as they've always been, and the new material adds some flair to rope in new players. The character roster is balanced between old and new fighters, with just about everyone getting some improvement to their skills. A good number of people are only interested in getting the fighters into ridiculous outfits. The PC iteration boasts a very healthy community and some nice graphical improvements over the console versions, so any gamer on the PC will be happy to have this fighting game in their grasp.

    Tekken 7 is every bit as great as its over-the-top presentation suggests. The fighting is immediately gratifying, the roster impressively expansive, and there’s a fair amount to do regardless of the type of player you are. Here’s a game that takes pride in its own legacy and instead of that pride feeling unearned or overstated, Tekken 7 makes a thorough case for itself. At a time when plenty of fighters are competing for attention, it seems there’s more than enough room for the King of Iron Fist.

    Its diverse roster is packed with a wide range of personalities and fighting styles, bolstered by a raucous attitude that begs to be taken seriously while simultaneously mocking its more peculiar whims in the process. Tekken fans will find their next favorite game--one that's the product of decade's worth of refinement. And while some of this depth will be lost or out of reach for newcomers, there's enough fun to be had outside of hardcore competition to keep players from all walks of gaming thoroughly entertained.

    Tekken 7 is a great time-killer that can hold its own against the latest installments of Guilty Gear and BlazBlue.

    I am convinced the people who are giving poor reviews have not even played this game.
    The game is incredible on PC, much more features than the arcade version. Im using a Qanba Obsidian stick and its perfect for this game. The game recognises all controllers without any issues. Tested 3 sticks so far, no problems. The game is deep and very rewarding to play. Have yet to find any issues with the PC version. Online is smoother than some games that have been out for a while (SFV).
    Its easily the best fighting game to come out in years. Ignore the poor reviews, they clearly have not played the game or are not fighting game veterans. highly recommended to those who love fighting games!

    For as long as I have started playing video games, the 'fighting games' genre has always been my favorite. As a martial artist myself, IFor as long as I have started playing video games, the 'fighting games' genre has always been my favorite. As a martial artist myself, I always loved a good combat system in games, and to me personally no other franchise has ever done that better than Tekken. And now with Tekken 7, the new king of this genre has arrived. Tekken 7 is better, prettier, smoother and larger than any Tekken before. The story is also the best in the franchise and there are all the other game modes present that you expect in a fighting game - Arcade Mode, Treasure Mode, Practice Mode, Online And Local Versus Mode and so on. From these, my favorite is Treasure Mode where you fight random opponents on any difficulty to unlock new gear, fight money, etc. which then you can use to customize your characters. And the customization possibilities are HUGE, and the best part about it that it is FREE, you don't need any microtransactions to unlock EVERYTHING! All you need is skills and time. At launch almost 40 fighters are already available with many more coming as DLC characters, it is safe to say that you get more than enough content for your money. Of course all of this would not work if the battles weren't addictivly fun. Tekken since the beggining has always been all about skills. The combat system is sooo deep, there is nothing else like it. It is not as easy to get good at it like Injustice, Street Fighter and other games in the genre. It takes time and again SKILLS to master it. Casual gamers will easily get destroyed online. This is not a diss to other fighting games, because as I said, I like and play almost all of them, but Tekken 7 is the best of the best. The last few years have been superb for fighting games fans with King Of Fighters XIV, Mortal Kombat X, Street Fighter V, Guilty Gear Drx 2, Injustice and so on but Tekken 7 takes the crown as THE best. Amazing game and a must play for everyone. Expand

    It's alright.. seems to do nothing new and some backwards stuff like missing features available to previous Tekken games.

    If online play is the only thing you enjoy about Tekken (which did not exist back in the day) then i am afraid even that don't hold up solidIf online play is the only thing you enjoy about Tekken (which did not exist back in the day) then i am afraid even that don't hold up solid in T7. Rage quitters, very few players to VS.

    Story mode is horrendously bad, takes it's self way too seriously and seems tacked on.
    Arcade mode has no unlockable fighters, and no ending FMV sequences for finishing each character.

    The only thing i liked about T7 is it's visuals and art style.

    The music is straight trash, crappy tuned dubstep.. it is god awful, i turned the BGM all the way down to get even a remotely enjoyable experience when playing.

    Lack of game modes, lack of any real depth.. and absolutely zero personality.

    It's possibly the lowest point for Tekken ever, Tekken 4 got slammed but it does a better job than this.

    tekken 7 is a predictable follow-up to a series that's never aimed particularly high it may please casual gamers for a day or two but thetekken 7 is a predictable follow-up to a series that's never aimed particularly high it may please casual gamers for a day or two but the stagnant ongoing series is definitely in the second tier of fighters, way below Capcom or Nether Realm Studios games, and it's seriously getting old and tired. The lack of depth and subtlety and the emphasis on the offensive, rather than the defensive, puts this squarely two notches below the best in the genre. Expand

The amount of stuff you need to learn takes a LOT of time and its not even worth it. People are going to spam you with 1-2 moves and if you don't know the punish you are dead. People are toxic and the matchmaking is **** If you want to practice, the framedata feature is a dlc. Don't forget that every dlc-character is op or pain in the ass. It is not worth the money or the time! There are way better games out there. God this game is **** Expand
