    With Tekken Revolution the Tekken saga approaches Free to Play model in the best way.

    Tekken Revolution won't inspire people to toss out their old Tekken copies and embrace this wholeheartedly. Unless you exclusively play online, you'll miss out on the offline features and local multiplayer that make fighting games so much fun.

    The simplified gameplay mechanics and additional balancing ideas should provide a more level playing field to start off on. Longtime series fans, however, are likely to be left cold by this stripped-down title, which eschews the combo-juggling they are used to.

    Tekken Revolution is more experimental than Combot, but solid execution on some admittedly controversial ideas ensure that this free-to-play fighter is worth a bash. Franchise fans will feel more frustrated than Devil Jin upon witnessing the watered down gameplay mechanics, but casual combatants may find themselves lured back into the wacky world of the King of Iron Fist Tournament on the back of the digital download’s inherent accessibility and free entry fee.

    There's plenty to play with here, but you'll have to pay to win online. [Oct 2013, p.75]

    The business model in Tekken Revolution makes a great game only decent.

    Tekken is one of the best fighting games, very fun, and Revolution is a good exemple.
    But i'm not a big fan of the coins system, just my personal opinion.
    Everyone can try it since it's free, and probably will like it.

    Considering this was free, it is a very valuable game. It is similar to the rest of the Tekken, though obviously more limited.

    Interesting addition to the Tekken Franchise. Good to see Tekken has gone back to the style of 5/6 and left the style of Tekken Tag 2 longInteresting addition to the Tekken Franchise. Good to see Tekken has gone back to the style of 5/6 and left the style of Tekken Tag 2 long behind. This Tekken has implemented the free to play style of gaming and unless you are really good and can keep hold of your premium tickets that you slowly unlock you will have to pay to play or end up waiting half hour for your tokens to replenish. I like the way that your characters now level up the more you use them, meaning you can add points to either strength, defence, or critical hit chance. Only around 8 characters playable to begin with but others are unlocked the more you play, or you can just pay real money to unlock any that are locked. Shame not all characters are avaliable to unlock. I would have loved to of played as Wang. Micro-transactions are avaliable to purchase in irder to keep playing if you run out of tokens. I for one never use micro transactions so once i cant play anymore matches i just switch off and play again later. No 2 player local mode is a shame but it has ranked matches, player matches and arcade, all if which uses a token every time you play. But it also has a practise mode that doesnt use tokens. Overall a good fighting experience its just a shame its on a pay to play model. A proper game in this style would have been so much better. Still a great Tekken experience. Go try it, its free after all Expand

The adding of some new moves makes the game interesting or would except this game it the worse turtling game I ever played. I never played a fighting game where you had to wait for someone to do a special move or invincible move. Tekken Revolution was a revolution all right.For Spammers.This game is good if you're not good at fighting games and new to Tekken.Most of the people I play online are bad.they grab spam and use Special Art spam.The other moves on the game are pretty much useless.As a Tekken Fan seeing bad players flock to this game and are able to win also because of the point allocation system stops me from taking this Tekken game seriously.But to be fair it was made to be "free" and tailor made for newbies.I hate that the majority of the cast isn't on there but they still have Asuka and more characters should still be on the way.The music is forgettable.The stages are rehashed from Tekken Tag Tournament 2.If Fighting games were to go free to play like this or Dead or Alive5 Ultimate I'd give up the genre.This Tekken is a causal game.But its WAY too casual.I don't like having to dumb down to defeat an opponent.Traditionally in Tekken it took skill to win.On Revolution though that's a out the window.Its going to set Revolution players up for failure when they try the real games.Its fun but has only Arcade and online versus and nothing else.I thought TTT2's juggling was overkill until Revolution came out.The game was almost a step in the right direction but alas it falls to the same thing that burdens Fighting games now.Too Much flash not enough substance Expand

    Nice to see a free to play fighting game, without requiring any memberships or paying anything. That said, it's important to note that youNice to see a free to play fighting game, without requiring any memberships or paying anything. That said, it's important to note that you can't just play the game continuously without taking a break. You have to use coins or tickets to play. You get a ticket for signing in every day and for every 10 victories or so. A coin for online battle is given every 30 minutes and one for arcade (offline) every hour. You can also pay for tickets if you're desperate to play and have ran out. The game isn't visually or mechanically broken, and it's fairly well balanced (with optional but not pay-to-win characters). However, the lack of a tutorial, training mode, trials and explanation of game's mechanics, controls, buttons etc. make it difficult to pick up and play. The whole point of free to play is to attract those that aren't particularly interested in your game to promote the franchise. By excluding the most crucial feature it may actually put more people off. That said, once you get used to it the game is strangely addicting; even though gameplay-wise it offers nothing exciting, new or particularly polished. Overall it's worth playing if you're experienced with Tkken, but if you just want to try it out then avoid. Expand

    No 2player splitscreen versus (offline in your couch with your friends/bro/whatevah).

    No matter what anyone things, there is no arcade
    No 2player splitscreen versus (offline in your couch with your friends/bro/whatevah).

    No matter what anyone things, there is no arcade fighting game without a traditional fight with your m8, drinkin beer and anyway make us pay for it or give us this option.
    Namco should try to find another model because like ace combat infinity they scream "we need money badly" and that way they screw public-favorite and loving titles. In that case they screwed up a whole game genre lol.
    So... nuff said 0/10 the game just got deleted..
