Tekken 7 is an okay game and I definitely had fun with the game. The character roster is great and the gameplay is excellent. Tekken 7 is probably the best fighting game in the market along with Street Fighter V gameplay wise. But like Street Fighter V this game lacks content although it does have more content than Street Fighter V. That being said Tekken 7 does have a number of flaws.
The art style in Tekken 7 is great but graphically not so much. I thought the graphics could have been a lot better. Character textures were weak and the environment wasn’t great. Compared to other fighting games like Street Fighter V and Injustice 2 this game falls short in terms of graphics.
The music also wasn’t good and was very disappointing in my opinion. I felt more effort should have been put into the music.
The story mode was very poor and was a huge disappointment. Compared to Injustice 2 the story in this game is massive let down and overall the single player content is a huge letdown as well. The narrator was also very pointless, unnecessary and annoying during the story. Akuma is a guest character added to Tekken 7 (a popular character from street fighter) but I felt he overshadowed a lot of actual Tekken characters in the story mode. Overall the story was disappointing and the content is poor for a full priced game. If you’re new to Tekken then you might be disappointed to learn there is no tutorial mode in this game.
A lot of things said in this review are negative but there are a lot of good things about Tekken 7 as well. The customization options are excellent and if you like to customize your character then you’ll be very pleased with the options in this game.
The combat system in this game is unrivaled. Tekken 7 is the best fighting game gameplay wise probably edging out Street Fighter V and Guilty Gear Rev 2. There is a lot of depth in the combat system. Learning how to use a character can take hours but in the end, it is very rewarding.
Tekken 7 is an okay game and it’s better than Injustice 2 gameplay wise but if we look at both games as a whole package then Injustice 2 is the better game. That being said if you’re a hardcore fan of the fighting genre and if you are looking for a fighting game with incredible gameplay then Tekken 7 is the one for you.
When it comes to gameplay Tekken 7 is unrivaled. But as a package, it could have been a lot better.
