Tekken is one of the premier fighting franchises of all time. You could even say that Tekken was one of the early games on the original PlayStation that swayed the tide for that console. Now though, Tekken is a multiplatform game and today we are looking at Tekken 7 on the PC.
Fighting With Style
Tekken has always had a rather strong story behind it, a story that is kind of nuts and hard to explain if you have not been into the series before. Tekken 7 though does a much better job in bringing the story not just to a close, but to potential new players.
This is because for Tekken 7, Bandai Namco have tried to do what Mortal Kombat has done and that is make a more cinematic story. They did this very well and the story is exciting, weird and pretty brutal and well worth playing through.
As well as the story mode you have your arcade modes, online modes and about a million other things that you can do as well. One of the things that is fair about Tekken 7 is that you make money for pretty much everything you do in the game which will come in handy as we will discuss later.
Tekken 7 is a really fun fighting game. It plays the same as it always has done and that is not a bad thing at all. A huge part of the fun with Tekken 7 is that it is a game that can be played by just mashing the buttons like a maniac. You do this and you will have a fun time and maybe even win the odd fight against the AI.
Tekken 7 though also has some very deep fighting mechanics and this is where the strategy comes into play. Tekken is not a game like Street Fighter or Injustice where many of the characters have projectile attacks. Tekken is a game that wants you to get in close with some devastating hand to hand combat. Learning how to do not just special moves, but also combos is actually a lot of fun.
Crazy Character Customization
One thing that Tekken 7 does very well is let you tinker with your characters. There are so many different styles of clothing, little weird add-ons and so on that, you can use to personalize your character that it will make your head spin. It can almost be overwhelming there is that much stuff for you to choose from.
Why would you want to do this? Well, it makes your character stand out that is why. When you are playing online it is great if your Paul looks nothing like all of the other Paul’s that you come across. Speaking of online there are plenty of tournaments and fun you can have online and the community is actually a lot of fun.
Tekken 7 is a truly wonderful fighting game and one of the best entries in the series in general. You may wonder how a fighting game can stay strong after all this time, but Tekken 7 shows you how it should be done. With a ton of characters, an awesome story mode, a solid online community and much more. Tekken 7 is one of the easiest fighting games to recommend to people. No matter if you are a hardcore fighting game fan or someone new to the genre.
