The Review of Tekken 8

For the uninitiated, Tekken 8 is the latest in a series of fighting games from arcade legend Namco, in which a group of gloriously flashy fighters compete in one-on-one battles in a closed arena to win the King of Tekken Tournament. Players can fight progressively stronger computer-controlled opponents in Arcade and Story modes or against each other in local or online matchmaking.

Unlike 2D fighting games such as Street Fighter, characters can circle each other instead of moving on a 2D plane, adding depth. The combat system is also very different. Tekken 8 uses four buttons, each controlling a different limb, so the basic movements are two kicks and two punches, and two simultaneous button presses allow for throws. Button presses can be linked into sequences to access more powerful combos (combos), and short and long presses on the analog stick or arrow keys add extra power. Tactics include quick jabs and kicks to weaken opponents’ defenses, throwing them into the air and juggling them like crazy circus performers.

The Review of Tekken 8

Tekken 8 is a graphical and technical marvel, with its 32 characters richly detailed and intricately animated, full of personality and divinity. With such a large cast, the characters may feel cookie-cutter. Still, there’s variety here, so you can fly through the air as jet-powered beauty queen robot Alisa Bosconovitch or perform Zafina’s creepy tarantula crawls.

Tekken 8 also uses the new rage system introduced in Tekken 6, which adds extra power to your moves when your life level falls below a certain point.

Tekken was once viewed as fancy showmanship by Street Fighter and Virtua Fighter veterans, with its combos considered too automated and lacking in expressiveness. But later, Tekken games added subtle complexity, and now Tekken 8 wants everyone to see how it works.

Join the fight in Tekken 8!

The Tekken series has never been more thrilling.
So, Join the fight in Tekken 8!
