Summary

Not another mediocre Tekken game...

The Good

This game's graphics, music and controls were decent, and the game actually featured story battles, which enhanced the play experience a bit, but not by much. The gameplay is back to a one-on-one system, and the King of Iron Fist Tournament is back, but those are the game's only good attributes.

The Bad

On the other hand, but there was still no 8-way run, and it was still too short for me. This game is best left alone until it is in the bargain bin for < $20

The Bottom Line

This game is an improvement, but it still does not go down smoothly.
