Tekken 3's the fiercest fighting game to date, blending stylish looks with the coolest control and gameplay your quarters can buy. Fake fighters better step aside—the king's back in town.
The characters are certainly a lot of fun. With some returning faces, characters that are holdovers from Tekken 2 but enhanced for this world, and some completely new faces, both the look of the game and the fighting style that its characters represent offer a variety of choices. There's Eddy Gordo, who brings Capoeria into the mix with its dancing, flowing style, and Hwaorang, the student of Baek who brings his own take of Tae-kwan-do to the table. Ling Xiauyo uses a variety of kung fu styles, and Lie Wu Long returns with some crazy animal arts and a drunken boxing style that would make Jackie Chan proud. The roster is impressive, and each character's differences fit into the gameplay mechanics brilliantly, fusing together all aspects that make a fighting game truly spectacular.
