A worldwide martial arts tournament was nearing its finale. A large purse of prize money which was to be awarded to the fighter who could defeat Heihachi Mishima in the final round provided incentive for warriors from all over the globe. Financed and sponsored by the giant financial groups, the Mishima Zaibatsu, the first Tekken tournament began with eight fighters, all of whom had emerged victorious in death matches held all over the world, all motivated by different motives, all possessing the skill and power to crumble mountains. Many battles were fought. But only one lone warrior emerged with the right to challenge Heihachi Mishima for the of King of the Iron Fists. This warrior was Kazuya, Heihachi's cold blooded son. Bearing the scar given to him by Heihachi, he enters into vicious combat with his father on the same field where Heihachi last struck down his own son and dropped him into a trench at age five. After a grueling battle which raged on for hours, Kazuya emerged ... Written by Tekken Zaibatsu <tekkenzaibatsu.com>

The Angst About Jun Kazama (Do I need to go THIS far?)
24 March 2006 | by Carfreak1986See all my reviews

This is the first time I've ever rated a video/arcade game on the IMDb, but let me tell you, writing a review on "Stay Alive" with those two immortal words "Jun Kazama" led me here--and the same point system I used for that review. The maximum this can get is a 41. Points are awarded through four categories: visuals, sound, replay, and durability.

VISUALS: (41/41) "PERFECT!" These are the best I've ever seen since I heard of this game late-December 1996 on a demo disc on the PlayStation. Unfortunately, in THAT version, you could only select two fighters. When I played the full version back in 1997, nine years ago, I was a little nervous, and then I improved. This game had atmosphere until Tekken 3, released in arcades in 1996, arrived. All 23 characters had new moves, and you could always experiment using these characters in the game's Practice mode to see which one suits your playing style.


Jun Kazama loses ALL the points in the character audio category. Wanna know why? When you're fighting against her (look for a headband--she normally appears on stages 4, 5, or 6, but one time on stage 2 when I played in the arcade), and the computer's energy bar is gone, you'll hear the world's most ANNOYING silly death scream whilst the announcer declares a "K.O.", "PERFECT!" or "Great!". The other characters have their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to sampling voices. Because of that rather silly death scream, I've had dreams about that sound, first in 1998, then in 2000, 2004, and last year. However, if YOU'RE playing with Jun Kazama and YOU get KO'd, your game is over (bad) while committing poor play all at the same time. My advice: DO NOT LOSE A SINGLE STAGE using Jun Kazama. It'll come back and haunt you as you get older and remember this priceless gem.

REPLAY: (41/41) "PERFECT!" What can I say? Multiple endings, a Time Attack mode, a Survival Mode, a VS Mode, and whatnot? Many of your friends will want to borrow this game, even have countless tournaments. It's quite funny that this game was seen in the 2004 Shaun of the Dead, but I'm not quite sure if Shaun or Pete was playing with Jun Kazama rather poorly in the arcade...or was that a reference?

DURABILITY: (41/41) "PERFECT!" Wow. I'm speechless. This game surpassed my really hard review! When it comes to movies and games, I'm a really hard judge, but the rather silly death scream of the annoyingly loud Jun Kazama threw me off guard, forcing me to write this review, which is rather long. Oh well. I'm giving THIS 10 stars out of 10.
