This game is great if you're just looking to kick some ass. The graphics are stunning; best I've seen on the 3DS in fact. But what I miss most is the epic story lines of each character that make Tekken awesome. All you get is 'Quick Play' aka as 'Arcade Mode' in previous games, 'Practise Mode', which I hardly ever bothered with for any of the Tekken games, and 'Survival Mode' where you have to beat as many characters as you can.
Every time you battle, you gradually get these fight cards which depict the characters. If you're a bit of a collector then you'll love this element, but personally, I don't think it's all that. For me, the motivation to use other characters is non-existent. Which means I just kick everyone's ass with Kazuya (he was always my all-time favourite!) which is not necessarily a bad thing. You still get fight cards even using the same character time again.
I do, however, love the film that you can watch. It was nice watching a 'film' of Tekken that wasn't a cartoon or adaptation, it starred the characters we know and love. To watch it in 3D was a treat indeed.
So anyone looking for a good, straight forward beat em up game, this is for you. You certainly won't be disappointed with the graphics. The film probably won't make much sense to you though. But anyone who loves Tekken for the story like I do, then you may be disappointed with this game. It's not like Tekken Dark Resurrection which was basically Tekken 5 as a handheld game (PSP). This is a pity, to watch the story with these graphics would have been fantastic. But at £9.35 or less, it's definitely good value for money; Tekken fan or not.
