    At its core, Tekken 7 is the ultimate Tekken experience. While paying tribute to previous games in the series, it’s also made for the hardcore Tekken fan in mind. Newcomers will also love it once you get a feel for the unique fight system. There isn’t much I didn’t enjoy with during my time with Tekken 7, other than it makes me want a new Soul Caliber with the same TLC that went into this game. I highly recommend picking up Tekken 7.

    Tekken 7 is definitely a big guy. A new engine, new characters, new combat techniques and a lot of new game modes and options. It doesn't have the amount of content found in Injustice 2, but the way the familiar combat system makes you feel so powerful is still unmatched.

    Tekken 7 is the first modern fighting game I've played that really seems to maintain the feel of the classics in its entirety. As much fun as the results of the genre's evolution has been, there's always going to be a place in the gaming collective for the classics, and Tekken 7 is fundamentally just that. It's nearly perfect as a core Tekken experience. The only thing that was truly disappointing was the lack of Tekken Ball.

    Tekken 7 is not the best entry in the series and lacks some single-player content, but when it comes to offering gorgeous combat against friends and other people online, here it is: the King is back with outstanding battle mechanics and plenty of characters to learn. If you don't prefer Injustice 2, here you have your new main fighting game of the season.

    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.

    For those hardcore players there’s plenty to enjoy from the deep, rewarding and varied roster of characters, fully featured and seemingly lag-free online modes, as well as the refinements to the core combat that make Tekken 7 the best since Tekken 3.

    Tekken 7 has the barebones basics for a good fighter, but it’s missing the trimmings that make it worth recommending over bigger, and cheaper competition.

The game, once you get in it, provide an addicting online competition through ranks. It's a complex game, with a lot of meta for each character.
    The offline is a little disappointing: story isn't memorable and game modes are few, but Treasure Mode stands out for its longevity and for learning the characters moveset.
    One of the most well-crafted fighting game ever created, with some features lacking.

    Very disappointing in comparison to virtually all of the previous games.

    I was actually extremely excited for this release, I actually took the day off work to play it as I'd eagerly awaiting for months for this to hit the shelves, so I got up early and got down to the local games retailer and bought it, very excited.

    Firstly I was pretty upset about the roster cutbacks, I lost my 2 main characters (Lei/Roger) and I'm not the only one... Where are the other classic characters??? Mokujin? Armor King? Marduk?????? Instead they are replaced by weeb-friendly characters like Eliza and Lucky Chloe. The guest character could have been a good idea, if they took a character from a 3D fighter and reworked it rather than using Akuma from 2D Street Fighter, just feels wrong.

    Story mode is about as interesting as paint drying, the new screw system just isn't as fun and fast paced as the juggle/bound system on T6 & TTT2, and don't even get me started on Rage Art, way to dumb down the game and make it accessible for any old button-masher to win! Namco/Harada did this game for the money and definitely not for the die-hard fans.

    However I will commend the deep character customisation, it can be pretty good fun messing around with all the possibilities there.

    TL;DR - personal opinion 4/10 due to lack of content esp for age-old Tekken fans like myself (played since the first) also Namco's plan to monopolise on DLC by releasing about 15 chars on roster then releasing the rest as extra payable content, wtf happened??? But if you're a casual fighter fan and looking for something to pick up and play with friends - this is probably the best 1v1 fighter on the shelves for PS4/XB1 right now, but keep your eyes peeled. Much better fighting games are on the horizon.

    Shallow button masher of a game with very little depth or skill required, if you are a hardcore fighting game player avoid this game.
