    If you’re a fighting game fan then, Tekken 7 is absolutely essential in my book. Sure, it doesn’t offer the same value for money as the recently released Injustice 2, but the combat feels better. It’s more technical and has a greater flow. If you’re a fan of the series, Tekken 7 will blow your bloody socks off. And if not, well, it’s still likely to impress if you give it the chance.

    I applaud the series for continuing an overall narrative, and the surprise characters and reveals were quite exciting for its story mode. Tekken 7 is not only a return for the series to the forefront, but a great addition to the genre as a whole. It tries new things and succeeds in almost every way, and even though I’m not the biggest fighting fan these days, as I’ve retired my fight sticks, I’m still quite enjoying my time with Tekken 7, in lengthy or short bursts. Even my 4 year old really enjoyed playing, being able to put together a few combos by button mashing, but more importantly, dressing up the characters quite silly to her liking. There’s lots to do for series veterans to learn but is also a great entry point for newcomers to the series. Tekken 7 is back and shouldn’t be missed, regardless of your skill level.

    Tekken 7 is not the most complete game of the series, but it is a fantastic game that will provide many hours of fun for the fans, and probably have the best story mode of the franchise. A must-have game for all players who love this genre.

    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.

    While Tekken 7 has a few problems, the positives certainly outweigh the negatives. It's a series known not for its highly engaging story, but rather its vibrant and colourful, yet complex gameplay. With the addition of Rage Arts, fights look even better and feel fluid in the process. Witnessing this in all modes, especially the online tournaments, is a treat and hitting the Gallery for some nostalgic downtime stops the gameplay from becoming too stale. We may be missing a few of the series' beloved characters and load times may hinder it slightly, but one thing is certain — Tekken is still an addictive fighting franchise that definitely deserves its place in 2017.

    Tekken 7 feels like the return for the series. After some bumps in the PS2 and PS3 era this series really feels like it is regaining its footing. There is a lot of content here for casuals and solo players, and the hardcore will love the under-the-hood changes. There is something for everyone, which most fighting games fail to capitalize on. If you have been out of the Tekken game for a while, it is finally time to return.

    Offline, everything in Tekken’s garden is rosy, but online it looks like someone has been at it with the weedkiller.

    Complicated and Dated
    Tekken 7 is a fighting game with seemingly a bunch to do, but just can’t stand up to today’s competition...
    Tekken 7
    Complicated and Dated
    Tekken 7 is a fighting game with seemingly a bunch to do, but just can’t stand up to today’s competition...
    There is a story mode here complete with cut scenes which is probably the best part of the game...
    Its tells the father son struggle of Heihachi and kazuya... as Kazuya sets out to kill his father for killing his mother…
    The story mode goes a bit all over the place, so it’s hard to follow at times, but there’s definitely some emotion here, and I did find the story mode to be intriguing..
    However this story mode is only 2 hours long…
    There are character specific chapters to do after you complete the story mode that all tell a silly conflict between 2 fighters and end in a nice short cut scene at the end of the battle, and gives every character in the roster some personality...
    To add even more personality to your characters... there’s a treasure battle mode here where you can earn fight money and clothing items to customize your entire roster…
    However there are few unique outfits for each character
    A lot of customizable options are shared... and even worse… you have to rebuy the exact same article of clothing even if you already own it for another character…
    This is a decent feature though and you can even change the color of most items here…
    The actual gameplay though…
    Its stiff..
    Tekken 7 feels extremely slow stiff and annoying compared to the competition like injustice 2…
    Enemies feel spammy at times with their constant spam blocking and spam dodge attack from behind combos...
    This can to lead to many frustrating feeling moments.. Where you’ll feel you need to get lucky to progress rather than breathe and go back in with a new approach…
    This game is not newcomer friendly at all, as all of the cool moves are hidden behind ridiculous combinations of buttons…
    Feeling like a pro will take a lot of time and dedication to this game…
    Not recommend for the casual fighting game fan at all…
    Though there is a more casual addition to tekken 7 called a rage art…
    When you’re down on health and your back is against the wall, you can release a powerful attack like a super move from the injustice games, just with the touch of a button if you’d like as this move along with other button combinations are mappable on your controller…
    And onto the online mode..
    It’s completely broken for me on the PlayStation 4…
    I couldn’t connect to any matches... so my fun with this game ended when the 2 hour campaign ended…
    Tekken fans I’m sure will love Tekken 7
    But fighting fans in general…
    Tekken 7 is miles behind the competition and needs to catch up…
    Content feels lacking with the likes of Injustice 2 out there now
    And the button mashy memorize a million button sequences get lucky combat is just not enjoyable to me anymore…
    I give Tekken 7
    a 6/10

The last few years tekken has strayed away from being tekken and more about the online aspect of the game. With balanced characters and online compatibility a lot of characters get left out or not added because of the online balance. Most tekken players that are used to classic tekken likes the old fighting games that is based on overpowered bosses and fun unlocks. The online feature for me just sucks the fun out of the game and story. Expand
