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. As for the sound side of things, the sound effects are well executed and the soundtrack provides a nice blood-pumping beat to serve as a backdrop to the action.
Excerpt: After the great success of Tekken Tag Tournament, it was up to Namco to take the next installment in the series, Tekken 4, to new heights and make it the best game of the series. So was it successful? In a nutshell, Tekken 4 is without a doubt the most technological accomplishment ever made by Namco, pushing boundaries and reaching new levels on the PlayStation 2.
Excerpt: After one awful plague, the fighting genre has instantly been rekindled with titles such as Virtua Fighter 4, Capcom vs. SNK 2, Guilty Gear X, the upcoming Soul Calibur 2, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (hey you never know), three 2D fighters from Sammy Entertainment (publishers of Guilty Gear X), and now Tekken 4. Virtua Fighter 4 reigned supreme when it was released.
Conclusion: Granted, some may miss the tag feature, or the classic never-ending stages, but this game still has enough to keep you occupied until a newer Tekken comes along. It's my favourite game without question, alone or with friends. Go get it now.
Excerpt: Fer de lance de Namco dans la catégorie baston, Tekken revient sur PS2 après les débuts plus ou moins controversés de l'édition Tag Tournament. Aujourd'hui, Tekken 4 a tout ce qu'il faut pour réconcilier les inconditionnels de la série et séduire ceux qui n'auraient pas accroché au gameplay de Virtua Fighter 4.
