Obviously this game has a lot of merit and the Japanese really love it.
I have played around with the series a little but never at a high level or had anyone to consistently help teach me.
I love the flash and personality of this game. The characters are really interesting and the stages are the best of any fighting game.
What is odd though is that it just doesn’t feel right to me. I grew up on SF, I play SF4 and VF5 (the best game haha) pretty seriously, go to local tournies, yada yada.
But whenever I watch high level tekken play, it just seems like two dudes moving back and forth and trying to get a launcher on one another so they can take half of their opponent’s life away. The juggle combos last so long that I one time saw some dude get launched and while he was getting combo’d, he took his hands off the controller, reached down and grabbed his soda for a drink, put it back down on the ground and then returned his hands for play—he wasn’t rushing to do this quickly either. Then after another second or two, his character recovered and he tried to launch his opponent to try and do some ridiculously long combo while his opponent just floats in the air and gets hit. I don’t understand this at all…
Plus, for a 3D game, it just doesn’t feel like 3D to me. Again, I don’t play it at a high level but it doesn’t have the 3D feel of VF5.
I am not trying to start a flame war. Obviously I am missing something here. I LOVE all fighting games and I really want like T6:BR, but I guess I just don’t get it? What’s wrong with me??? Do I just need to spend more time with this game or what?
Why are so many ppl drawn to this series??? :wtf:
