After the badly received Tag Tournament 2 can Tekken Revolution bring the franchise back to it’s shape? Or maybe just keep playing the main series of games like we have been.
"After the badly received Tag Tournament 2", never knew that an 83 on metacritic was badly received. That right there made this entire review slanted.
Yup, though I don't see why this game needs a review. It's free and has trophies, so even if you hate the game. Well, you still have some trophies to unlock.
Yeah, I've played a few rounds and have had some fun. Free to play fighter with online and trophies. If the reviewer doesn't like it, he/she can delete it.
Well, I still thought of giving my opinion on a franchise that I happen to love alot,if you read it all way thorough,I still said it to try it out due to the fact of it being free to see if you like it, It's all an opinion is what i'm saying. Thanks for your feedback.
Agreed, the game is as good as any of the previous Tekken's it just lacks the characters, but I see this more for pro fighting game fans, who only use a few characters and go by tier list. But at the end of the day it's FREE. 8/10
There's about 12 characters and more to come as DLC. I just hate how long it takes to unlock them. First at 1000 G, second at 7000, third at 30 000 and last at 60 000. It takes quite a while to get even 1000 more points. But oh well. Free to play.
@HammadTheBeast I'm not surprised buy the cost of unlocking in game. It cost millions of gold in the previous games to unlock simple accessories. I wasn't to keen on this pay per fighter direction fighting games seem to be going. But I also realized I'm not as big of a fighting game fan as I was. I bought Virtua Fighter 5, Street Fighter 4, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken 6, and a few downloadable fighters. Besides the downloadable Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is the only one I still have via retail. So I'm seeing that for most fighting games this is the direction for me, but I can't speak for everyone else.
Well i just got that impression, you shouldn't dissmis a whole review due to the fact of one statement that doesn't even have anything to do with the game though. Thanks for your feedback
For a free game it looks good, sounds appropriate, plays smooth. 5/10 for graphics (in the breakdown) isn't explained. Bit of a rookie move. Nothing deep here, but it's a notable FTP entry for those used to Jetpack Joyride types. My biggest complaints are actually about the combo balancing. All the Law and Kazuya spammers online are kinda killing it. As such, the game could use some offline VS for replayability once you get your 100% trophies.
Yes it's free, and I never said not to play the game. I think you should try it out and I do even recommend it at one point in the review, I just felt it was unloyal to what Tekken is and it was more of an attempt to go with Street Fighter Vs Tekken or something along those lines, yes I found spammers online to be a nuinsace thank you for your feedback we are all still learning after all :) thanks for you feedback we are all just learning afterall.
No prob, keep writing. Practice makes perfect, and ya gotta start somewhere :)
This game is awesome, this review isn't.
I have played this game and I must disagree. Although the online coins thing is kinda lame.
Thanks for your reply I appreciate it. I have noticed quite alot of people who like this game and it's interesting to for me to see why, someone who wins an argument learns nothing after all, and I enjoy hearing other people's opinions and learning from them.
I would like to say i am not a big teken fan more of a DOA guy.
Tekken is as generically dull as it's ever been!
Did anyone expect it to be good?
okay, first off, the fact that the guy says tekken 4 was awesome makes his entire review unworthy. tekken 4, though not completely terrible, is widely considered to be the worst tekken game in the entire series. secondly, bro. lili was in tekken 5. also, like it or not, dubstep actually makes for a pretty cool soundtrack in a lot of media like games and movie previews. its not like you're buying entire albums off iTunes. its just a pretty cool sounding song going on in the background of the game. and if you ask me, tekken 6's soundtrack was actually pretty terrible. tekken revolutions sound was a much needed upgrade. though i do agree that the points and tokens system is pretty strange, its also pretty doable considering the game itself is FREE. if you dont like the way the free version of the game plays, you can easily buy 2 paid versions of the game with tekken 6 and tekken tag. graphics are also fine, so i dont really know what thats all about..
You made good points, but let me remind you this is all opinion it isn't written in stone, I like Tekken 4 but I haven't played it in a long time. I remember it as one of the first Ps2 games I've ever played and I loved it, maybe today it would be different story but that's my experience with Tekken. There were tracks in the game that I did like but mostly I felt like it was just out of place and I didn't enjoy the upbeat feel attached to the game although it may work for some people it didn't work for me. Thank you for your feedback as I've mentioned before it's appreciated and let me remind you that in Pure|News we do enjoy talking to our readers and learn from them. So please do adress me as Felix and not that guy thank you.
I feel a lot of your negative opinions pretty much relate to all tekken games since tekken 6 and not really exclusive to just tekken revolution. Maybe it would be cool if you reviewed some of the past games so we can see why this one is so much worse. What you have to understand is that this game is not the next instalment of tekken, it is a free to play model with lots of experimental features based off the tekken tag 2 engine. If you put this in to context of being a side project and the value you get for FREE, your score is unfair.
“Get Tekken Dark Resurrection Online, it has a lot more content, all the roster, no limitations on game play, customization and practically everything you could want to make a great Tekken“ Its also a dead game with unplayable netcode, therefore making it pointless to recommend
Hello TheBlackSmoke, due to the bubble system in N4G.com my colleague could not reply to your comment, here's his comment. Thank you for your reply, I wasn't aware that Tekken:DRO had become dead as of late, I played a few matches not long ago and I had few problems with lag and issues like that, What I meant is that it's a better game all around to play om party's or with your friends on the couch , even if the multiplayer is dead it's better than revolution for me. I wasn't aware of that information thank you for telling me -Felix
still , your recommendantion of tekken DRO doesn't make any sense , since Tekken tag 2 is there with a healhty online an impressive roster and you can enjoy it up to 4 players on the couch. Recommending T:DRO at this point is nonsense because it has been topped in every way by tekken tag 2
I enjoy the agressive combat but it needs more content.
What I love about Tekken Revolution is they used cell shading for the characters. Lili looks much cuter here than on Tekken Tag 2. What I hate. It's basically Tekken 5 with TTT2 characters on it while adding some crazy power moves that will drain your life bar. At least retain the bound move. Also, not all characters are included. The coin thingie is dumb. If they really want to cash in on this game. Aesthetics is the way to go. Provide some customizable pieces of costume in the cash shop for grabs.
This game rocks for a free 2 play title. It appears to have a healthy on-line community and will no doubt receive numerous updates. I'm primarily a SF player but am really enjoying the arcade feel of this game.
