i lovvvvveeeee this game. hands down best fighting game out for the simple reason that if your a button basher, then you won`t get very far on this game when playing real human fighters online and may struggle against the AI fighters. So you can blow fighters like soul caliber and mk vs dc out of your purple circle because this, like all tekkens just annihilates them.
The story is fantastic with a few shocking surprises along the way (only a surprise if your a lifetime tekken fan). Game modes include the lengthy scenario mode which is the main game mode. Then you have your usual tekken modes like arcade,vs,team battle,survivor ect and a practice mode. Online is ok from what i have played. Character customization is back in force in a sense that the outfits you wear give you added stats like more health or elemental damage to your attacks but only in scenario mode (i think) if your into all that dress up nonsense but i don`t really care for it. To unlock character endings, you must, instead of just taking every person through arcade mode, go to a arena in scenario mode and fight 5 fights. same thing as arcade only shorter which is a plus i think.
Only thing i have noticed is that it seems slower than normal tekken games but i might be because i haven't played tekken in years. For me every tekken game is a keeper so chances are that if your a tekken fan, then you will buy this. To new tekken players who are interested, take my advise. GET THIS GAME! Buy it, rent it, lend from a friend whatever. Just get this game.
Visually it looks great, fighting system is classic tekken with new smash through floors and walls. That said i will admit that theres really nothing ground breaking about the game, feature wise, its just a great chapter in the tekken saga. Trophies are surprisingly simple and some are lengthy to get so if your a trophy hunter like me then its a good enough reason to get this for a nice, simple platinum. GET THIS GAME oh and it has 40+ roster
