Sephiroth Posted January 27, 2002 Share Posted January 27, 2002 Yesterday, I decided to go to the arcades with my friends, we all had Dance Dance Revolution in mind before we got there, but as soon as we walked through the doors, my jaws dropped to the floor, finally, the game I have been waiting for such a long time was finally here, and a mighty big crowd gathered around it, the game is, obviously tekken 4, and boy, was it a doozy, the graphics are so awesome, the speed of the game as smooth as silk, just by looking at it I couldn't fault the game, I waited impatiently for my turn, and when I finally got on it, I was hooked, lucky for me I am already such an experienced tekken player, I stayed on the machine for a mighty long time, beating opponent after opponent, never missing a go, never having to go all the way back in line, what an experience.... Graphics I seriously cannot fault the graphics in this game, they're so amazing, the way the hair moves, the levels, the level of detail on the characters, I was most impressed with the levels, they look beautiful, gone are the ways of previous tekkens where you fought on ground that never ends, you could reach walls here, and when you do, it opens up a whole new lines of moves and holds, you can smash them against the wall, or you can do a matrix and run up the wall and jump behind your enemy. Though there are a few bland levels, offering nothing special, like the beach and the air force level, its just....nothing special Gameplay The gameplay cannot be faulted, it moves faster than any of the previous tekken's, and it has an addictive feel to it, once you start, you can't stop, the controls pretty much remain the same as other tekken's, except for the holds, if you do a normal hold, all it will do is grab your enemy and put them behind you, or just push them in front of you so you can start a combo on them, nice feature. Sidestepping is also done pretty much the same as before, but the only thing I can fault on the game play is if you fall to the floor, your opponent can keep hitting you and you won't have a chance to get back up, its even worse if your on the floor close to a wall.... Sound to be honest, I couldn't hear much from the sound, too much noice happening behind me to hear anything! -_- Characters a lot of the characters make a welcome comeback, with some new characters too, but be warned, some of the characters have been completely changed, meaning they have few of the moves they had in previous tekken's! king pretty much remains the same, except for a few extra moves, and a LOT of new holds, and chain holds, kazuya, well, what more can I say about my favourite character? I love the way he plays in T4, other characters are julia, bryan, heihachi, law, paul, nina, xiaoyu, lei, and jin, who's moves have been completely changed, I think I missed a few of the old characters, but on to the new characters, we have violet, who looks exactly loke lee from tekken 2 and tag, but he has moves from law, heihachi and paul, then we have the huge newcomer, marduk, who fights like the people from ultimate fighting championship, his moves are pretty hard to learn, and then there is steve fox, a british boxer, and an excellent character as well. very fast and strong with good combos, then there's christie, she plays exactly like eddie, not surprising since he taught her, next up is combot, who plays like mokujin. Overall overall, I can't wait to play the game on the ps2, so I'll be playing it in the arcades instead, lol, I recommend you get to your nearest arcade and play it, trust me, you won't regret it....
