Excerpt: Tekken 4 is the latest in the worldwide known fighting series from Namco where the player has to beat all opponents to win the title of King of Iron Fist and on the way defeat the forces of evil.
Excerpt: Medical experts agree that a well-conditioned man who eats right and engages in regular exercise can retain the majority of his physical abilities well into his sixties. Among the current contenders for the 3D fighting game crown, nearly every game is a kind of proof that this statement is true.
Excerpt: I have a played a lot of Tekken in my time. Between my introduction to the series with Tekken 2 and the occasional romp on Tekken Tag Tournament , I've probably logged over 100 hours with the series, which is impressive when you consider I usually don't like fighting games.
Excerpt: Tekken 4 is the fifth entry in Namco's flagship fighting series ( Tekken Tag Tournament being the fourth), and while not quite a huge leap forward, there are enough new additions to make this more than just " Tekken 3.5 ".
Pros: Lots of variety in fighters and styles, Easy to pick up and play, Great Graphics
Cons: Practice and Training could use some work, New features don't add much to game play
Excerpt: Tekken has always looked good. Tekken 4 is definitely no exception. The characters models are beautiful, the detail is amazing. There's reflections in mirrors, and some of the most beautiful water I've seen in a game.
Summary: Namco’s Tekken 4 has to rank as one of the
most-anticipated PS2 titles of the year. While it doesn’t radically change the
formula, fighting game fans should love all the changes such as walled arenas
and graded floors that keep things interesting.
Excerpt: Much like past Tekken games, Tekken 4 has the Mishima clan at odds again, with the returning Kazuya Mishima (who was thought dead after being thrown into a volcano) and Jin Kazama seeking revenge against the leader of the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation, Heihachi.
