The Tekken series has been going steady since the mid-’90s, but Bandai Namco tried something new with the latest Tekken 7 PC installment. A beginner-friendly approach, and two awesome features that come with it. Indeed, the latest installment introduces several new elements to the fighting system. Such as Rage Arts and the Power Crush mechanic. Oh, and Screw hits. Tekken 7 takes place not that long after the events of Tekken 6.
If It’s Not Broke, Don’t Fix It?
Indeed. The unique take on 3D fighting has been a well-kept company recipe, and if the recipe is good…then what’s the point of changing it? The same goes for the movements among the opponents. They’re still so fluid and easy to maneuver. Beauty that’s more than just a polished shell. Yes, everything in Tekken 7 looks beautiful on PC. Especially the characters, and yes, everyone has their favorites. And there are some brand new moves for those characters, which is always nice. But those characters are what we’re after. Nina, Paul, Yoshimitzu are still good and still kick ass. Additionally, Akuma is one of the few fighters who get a great deal of PC playtime in Tekken 7, so if you’re a fan, you’re in for a treat. And from the new guys, there the presence of Shaheen. A great character with a great background, and great moves too.
Tekken 7 PC Final Thoughts
But with excellent customization options and fantastic features, this is a good game to try. Especially if you’re a fan of the series. Yes, it’s not perfect (especially the story mode), but it’s good enough to provide some decent entertainment overall. The great online multiplayer adds volumes to the quality, and makes things even more interesting. But, yeah. This is an awesome game. Tekken 7 PC is available for purchase at IndieGala.
