Playing through the original on PS4 atm.

I'd really like to catch up on the series before playing the third.

I enjoy the classic martial arts aspect. It's cliche, but beautifully so!

My only criticism of the first game on PS4 is the classic controls are rather rough and movement has a bit of lag.

Very nostalgic and I'd have to assume that the visuals and controls will be significantly better in the third installment. I believe I will love the third.
