3.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking, lacks features., 13 May 2003
This review is from: Tekken 4 (PS2) (Video Game)
My review:
Fighting games I own:
-Tekken 3
-Tekken Tag Tournament
-Tekken 4
-Dead Or Alive 2
I almost didn't buy Tekken 4 after comparing it with Tekken Tag Tournament on-line. I noticed, immediately, that T.4 doesn't have even half the amount of characters as T.T.T. (T.T.T. had something like 32 characters! Awesome!). Not withstanding this, I bought it anyway, hoping for an improved game and some great surprises. Unfortunately, I cannot boast the game has either. Instead, the game plays very similar to T.3 and T.T.T. and has fewer surprises than both! I am only happy to see a newly worked TEKKEN FORCE MODE which is entertaining. Even the music is lousy (I have my music set to OFF). I agree with everything that reviewer D M JAMES has written. The controls and fighting are good, but the same, basically, as T.3. The obstacles just seem to get in the way, and are not SO OVERLY IMPRESSIVE or FUNNY that they matter at all. The graphics look beaitiful, but who cares if the game becomes boring within 1 hour. I found myself much more eager to play T.T.T. the day after I bought T.4. I am unclear why the 'TAG TEAM' mode play was completely left out of T.4. This, to me, was a big mistake. Tag play was very exciting, and especially fun to play with multiple players! I must admit that I also expected that some backgrounds would offer more depth (like in the DOA2 game I have); instead, T.4 seems to have LESS depth than DOA2 (which came out LAST year).
Basic negatives:
*No tag-team play.
*Too few characters!
*Many good characters missing! (Forest Law, Anna, GunJack, etc...)
*One of the new characters even has the same fighting style as a previous Tekken character -- Eddy (who does not appear, as a fighter, in this game).
*No adorable "Gon" :)
*No Great new characters added.
*The stupid Combot (undoubtedly inspired by the stupid robots in Star Wars: Episode I and II) I much preferred Tetsujin or Mokujin!
*No TEKKEN BOWLING
*No TEKKEN BEACH VOLLEYBALL
*Basically: Nothing creative added. The same old thing, again.
*Nothing to draw the player into tournaments, etc...
*No rewards, or 'fighting for money' or different cups to win, etc... (i.e. B O R I N G )
Basic positives:
*Nice looking.
*Plays good.
*Tekken Force Mode has been re-worked, and is quite nice.
*New menus are nice.
