Injustice is better than Tekken.

Tekken is better than Injustice.

Soul Calibur is better than both.
By the way, where the hell is Tekken Tag on this list?

It says in the title 'main lineup'.

XanderZane1650d ago

Virtua Fighters is actually better then Tekken. Still, out of all the Tekken games Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 are probably the best in the series. Soul Calibur is still one of my favorite franchises.

Depends if you want an animation movie with ok battles or great fighting game with some animations.

Tekken tag tournament 2 is probably my favourite (still didn't play 7 unfortunately)

Others would be: 5, 3, tag1, 2

Tekken 4 gets a lot of hate, but it has the best story, atmosphere and soundtrack in the series IMO. Sure the gameplay was very unbalanced thanks to the new stuff they tried out but I'd pick it over Tekken 1 any day of the week.

I'd probably agree with the rest of the list, more or less.

Hear hear. I had a lot of fun with 4. The tiered levels were kind of odd, but it's got a chill style.

Tekken Tag 2 is still my favorite though.

I'm a bit lost on the hate as well.

I mean the engine was different but they had to update the game to a new generation. The tier list gets criticism but Tekken 5 also had huge issues with this and doesn't get half the bad mouthing. The aesthetics of the game were wonderful, the sound design amazing, the music very memorable, and I loved their attempt to reduce the cast and keep the roster diverse while pushing the most down to earth narrative Tekken has seen or will ever see.

I think the fact Tekken 4 was so different from the other Tekken's is why I like it the most.

generic-user-name1650d ago

Good points. And at least they tried something new with the stage design affecting gameplay, sure it didn't work out well that time, but I wish they kept at that, I think they were on to something there.

Hylian101650d ago

Tekken 5 is the best IMO, and my favorite fighting game of all time.

Kakashi Hatake1650d ago

Preach, and the opening of T5 was amazing! Still the best opening in the series. Sucks that it seems they haven't tried to top it.

Was never a huge fan of the Tekken series but I always loved their presentation, characters and cinematics.

The latest one is just all out epic, especially the last battle between Kazuya and Heihachi.
