The beginning of the Iron Fist Tournament.
on 8 February 2012
This is the first Tekken game on Psone and only on that console. This game is what started the whole King of Iron Fist Tournament and this game also appeared in Tekken 5 as a bonus arcade game that you can unlock. It's a port of the arcade version, which is no good when playing with a control pad and all characters are unlocked from the start. I think this started out as an exlcusive series to the Psone - maybe it was back then - but now there are other releases on different platforms like Nintendo and Xbox 360, which I think it'll ruin it's reputation.
Arcade mode (or 1P Mode as it's called in this) is your main campaign. This is where you pick a character out of a total of 8 characters and you go through 8 stages of opponents and view an ending sequence at the end. After every playthrough you do, you will unlock a character with every character on the roster and each character has their own character to unlock - for example: Yoshimitsu will unlock Kunimitsu and Nina Williams will unlock Anna Williams, but only if you can beat the boss Heihachi at the end of every stage. When you have unlocked every character their is, Heihachi will be the last character you will unlock, but only if you can beat him.
There is not a single drop of replayability in this game, but there is a 2 player mode. This game won't last long and you can probably unlock all characters in one single playthrough. This is still a classic game and it is still worth a play for the fun of it or if you want to add it to your Tekken collection.
