A Benchmark
9 August 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Tekken was an ahead-of-its time 3D beat 'em up. It made a flawless transition to the Playstation, as one of its first titles, and was a true showcase for the new console.

Not only were the visuals a real treat, the gameplay was superb as well. Relying more on hand-to-hand combat rather than the fantasy special moves seen in previous titles such as Street Fighter 2, it excelled in the playability department, it succeeded where the frankly disappointing Virtua Fighter released a couple of years previous did not.

After spawning many follow-ups, I feel the series hasn't really progressed much since the original set the standard of 3D fighters (despite Tekken 2 being excellent). Nonetheless, the Tekken series will be remembered as the first truly addictive fighting game to use the 3D engine.
