Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7

Barely a few days into the release of the biggest 3D fighter as of late, Tekken 7 has received praise from a number of fans and critics alike. Even with Tekken 7 being as popular as it is, no game is perfect and Tekken 7 has both plenty of positives and some negatives to go along with it; so here are 5 of each for you to read on about!

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7

1. Satisfying Combat

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 5As with any fighting game, the combat needs to be fun and satisfying for the player and with almost every single Tekken game previously, Tekken 7 has managed to pull off that sense of satisfaction once again. Whenever you land a hit or get through a particularly difficult combo the sense of satisfaction you will get is something that you need to experience for yourself to understand!

2. No Real Tutorial

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 10One issue for newcomers with this game is that there isn’t actually a tutorial to teach the very basics in this game. Understandably, fighters can be learned quite easily by going into training mode and testing out all the buttons for a few minutes, but there are some nuances that you might not learn about due to the lack of tutorial and that’s not fair to the newer players who may have never played a Tekken game before.

3. Great Roster of Characters

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 3

There’s a myriad of characters in this one game – be they new or old – and every single one plays completely different to one another and it almost make it impossible not to find a main that you love to play throughout that cast of characters, whether you go online with them or stay offline.

4. Lacking Single-player Experience

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 2

Fighting games have an issue with having tacked on story modes or single-player content and unfortunately Tekken 7 is no different from this particular issue. After a few hours into the single-player side of the game, you’re going to find it incredibly lacking and will pretty much beg for you to move onto the online play to get the most out of this game.

5. Gorgeous Looking Effects

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 7

If you didn’t already know, when you land a hit on an opponent, there tends to be an explosion of visual effects to make you feel like you’ve done something. Well, it seems that Tekken 7 has taken that up a notch because those visual effects look absolutely gorgeous and it just makes them that much more enjoyable for the long term.

6. Does Not Teach New Players

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 9

I’ve already encroached upon this once, but it needs to be said again: there isn’t enough for a newcomer to the series to get a grasp on. The lack of tutorial is already a big enough issue, but unless the new players are willing to spend the majority of their time learning in arcade or training mode, the game might push them away from the overall enjoyment factor of the game and that’s a true shame for everyone involved.

7. Balanced Fighting Mechanics

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 6

One problem with fighting games from time-to-time is the lack of balance between different mechanics and characters, and as a result it can make one character be considered as overpowered. Instead, the overall game and its characters are well-balanced and it makes the player feel a lot better when they jump online because it makes you feel like you and your next opponent have a fair chance against each other; rather than looking at one character and instantly thinking, “I’m facing an OP character now, it seems my chances of winning just hit 0!” That’s not a fun frame of thought, so it’s a good thing that players won’t have to worry about that in the slightest!

8. Cliché Storyline

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 1

There’s not much single-player content in this game, as we’ve already discussed, but even in the short-lived story, it feels quite cliché and can get a bit boring at times because of this. Thankfully, the story does have some positive moments, but since it’s so short, it is the negatives that tend to stick out a little more.

9. Best Tekken Game in Years

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Image 4

Everywhere you look online with Tekken 7, fans all around the globe are considering this the greatest Tekken game in years and it’s quite easy to agree with this. The online is stable, the characters are all great fun to play, it looks gorgeous overall, and all of its mechanics are pretty damn balanced to such a degree that it’s almost unprecedented in the fighting game genre.

10. Archive Material can be a Pain

Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 Top 10 Best and Worst Things About Tekken 7 3

A great feature of this game is unlocking archived rewards from the series up to this point and while it is absolutely great to finally unlock your favourite Tekken stage soundtrack, getting the materials needed to actually unlock this can take some serious time to get. You don’t nearly get enough just by playing the game casually and that’s a real shame, because unless you’re playing the game all-day, every day, it’s rather unlikely you’ll unlock much of the content at all.

5 Things I Hate About South Park Fractured But Whole

5 Things I Hate About South Park Fractured But Whole

After experiencing what I consider one of the greatest TV show to enter a video game in South Park Stick of Truth, Once it was announced that we will get a sequel in Fractured but whole I was in great anticipation for this title to drop. I finally got around to playing the game and after multiple delays was the worth well worth it and did it live up to the standards of stick of truth well keep it locked as I look at 5 things I hate then give you my final verdict.

Still Not Perfect

For those who don’t know Fractured But Whole has been pushed back a number of times as the developers was aiming for perfection and whilst there are great attention to detail throughout the game there are just some areas which should have been addressed when considering the delay in release. I have come across a few glitches where the game has literally frozen and I have had to restart a mission a few times. Thank the lord there is an auto save feature which doesn’t mean you have to potentially redo 30 mins of gameplay since your last play. I also find small things to be a little weird such as turning off a TV whilst people watch and they don’t say anything. I feel if there was some form of comment from the viewer it would add to the overall experience feeling as if the game is polished.

Some Side Quest Feel Lacklustre

Fractured But Whole is jam packed with side quest to keep the game going for a while and I suppose side quest in any games are not the essential part of the game but more of a nice addition to keep the longevity of the game going. but with that being said I have found that there are a few filler side quests that in a sense feel that they are put there to just increase the length of the game rather than actually feeling as if they keep the excitement of the gameplay going. It got to a point where I was a little fed up of doing some of the side quest as they didn’t feel as if they added much value to the overall experience of the game.

Story Falls Off After A While

As a south park fan the first few hours in Fractured but whole kept me contempt and felt the story was pretty cool at first but as the game progressed there was periods where the story started to feel a little uninspired and not as engaging as I would have loved. The story is still overall pretty entertaining and certainly not the worse that I see in a video game but still just felt like it could have been more concise to keep the engagement high. Even when I got to the end of the game I was like it didn’t really feel like the story ever reached the heights that you thought it would reach but the story still pretty decent so don’t make me put you off.

Not As Funny As I Was Expecting

 

Stuck of the truth to me was such a hilarious game where during my first play through I was literally in stitches by the end of the game. I don’t know if it’s been toned down a little or maybe my sense of humour has died down a little but whilst I did chuckle at moments in the game I didn’t find it over the top hilarious as I was expecting. There were times where I was asking myself was that supposed to be funny. Obviously, there are going to be laugh out loud moments but I just felt that if you compare it with Stick of Truth it just felt that the jokes were just OK rather than fully hilarious throughout the game.

Easy Combat

I love the strategic approach that the developers took when structuring the combat in Fractured But Whole. The grid system is something that I grew to love and I loved the choices of moves to use to take out your opponent.

I know this game isn’t by any stretch a hardcore RPG game like final fantasy and maybe I am not playing on the hardest difficulty but in most combats that I encountered there was rarely anytime that I felt that I had to use my initiative to outsmart the energy and I still came out victorious. I just assumed considering how much strategic depth they applied to the battle

 

5 Things I Hate About South Park Fractured But Whole 5 Things I Hate About South Park Fractured But Whole Image7

Overall I will say that South Park Fractured But whole is a pretty cool game. Visually the game looks epic, the game is jammed with content that will keep you occupied for hours and the battle system is super fun. I will say though as someone who loved South Park Stick of Truth I just feel that Fractured but Whole didn’t really take the series to the next level and kind of just felt like a cool game but didn’t have the same effect or impact as the first entry. Fractured but whole does improve on Stick of truth in loads of areas such as combat, the visuals and a more explorable area that doesn’t feel too but I just always felt the overall experience just miss the mark. Do I recommend the game well if you a south park fan and enjoy RPG games with elements of humour then yeah? But if you not a fan of RPG games and not really into south park and got a crazy back log of games to get through then I wouldn’t say that it’s a essential to put this game on your priory list but still feel its a game that you should consider for a future purchase as it is still a good laugh.

5 Things I Hate about Cities Skylines Console Edition

After seeing various videos on YouTube of great cities built in Cities Skylines since it was revealed the game was coming to console this game has been on my radar but since finally grabbing the game did it meet my expectations well kets look at 5 things I hate about the game.

5 Things I Hate about Cities Skylines Console Edition 5 Things I Hate about Cities Skylines Console Edition 5 Things I Hate about Cities Skylines Console Edition Image1

 

 No Tutorial

 

The game does well to provide tips and hints to get you started or helps when things are not going your way with the lil twitter bird but I did find it strange that there isn’t a official in game tutorial. Most things I have had to look up online as I might not understand a specific icon or warning sigh which ends up slowing down playing time. I understand that there is so much depth in this game that a tutorial covering everything might even become boring or unrealistic but if you new to these types of games it does feel as if you thrown into the deep end to figure things out. I have had to start again like 20 times after figuring something out after 4-5 hours of playing that if I knew from the start would have save me time.

No Undo option

 

OK keeping it real this is just me nip picking and this isn’t really a major issue but more of an annoyance for me and that is the fact that there isn’t really an official undo or revert button. OK before the fans destroy me in the comment section saying that there is a demolition tool and yes that is a great feature but sometimes I find that if I place a road down over a house by accident and didn’t want to remove a section, or even place a bus line down wrong or simply get trigger happy there isn’t a more efficient way to reinstate or remove a simple unless you been consistently saving or obviously, you could use the demolition tool. As I mentioned this isn’t a deal breaker but it is something that I personally find annoying especially when you do something by mistake when building your city like maybe selecting the wrong building or placing the road over the wrong section or whatever you find you do by being trigger happy and I know it’s me being clumsy or not concentrating at times but it’s something that has happened a few times to me in my experience.

Idle periods

 

Between each milestone you will find that there are a few periods where you are kind of doing nothing and just sitting thee waiting for either your population to grow or just waiting for your money to go up and will sometimes just  sit there twiddling your thumbs until you are required to fix something in your city or create something new. whilst this is therapeutic at times listening to the relaxing in game music there has been times when a in game couple of weeks has passed and I was just looking at the screen. Maybe my city isn’t big enough for me to be occupied completely but it was something that happened quite often.

Lack of DLC in Overpriced Season Pass

 

City skylines on Console has been out for close to 9 months on the Xbox One and I am shocked that there isn’t much DLC available considering that there is a £30 season Pass Available.
Now don’t get it twisted this game to me probably doesn’t need DLC as there is so much to do but when I saw the season pass I was under the impression that there was loads of DLC especially after seeing quite a few packs available for the PC such as cosmetic packs, music packs and the other expansions just made me think at close to 9 months since it release we should see more than just the snowfall pack.

Day Night Cycle

 

I do like the aspect of seeing your city at night with the street lights lit as it adds to the atmosphere of the game but what confuses me is that the night sometimes last for a week in game. which sometimes makes it hard for you to see when trying to build or fix something. I understand that the game isn’t minute by minute and a day can last a few seconds if you speed up the time but there is times when I ask myself when is daytime coming.

 

 5 Things I Hate about Cities Skylines Console Edition 5 Things I Hate about Cities Skylines Console Edition 5 Things I Hate about Cities Skylines Console Edition Image10

With the 5 things that I pointed out as issues for me I still think that Cities Skylines is a phenomenal game.

I was shocked how much detailed is embedded into this game and even shocked at how addicted I became. You literally will be wanting to reach each milestone and the sense of achievement when your city grows just feels great. whilst the graphics ain’t groundbreaking and the lack of tutorials will make it a steep learning curve if you are into city builders this is a must own game. I got it on the Xbox One and haven’t come across any bugs that has ruined my experience but yet again mu population is only over 7000 so maybe when I reach 50000 who knows what I will encounter but for the time being I am pretty chuffed with this title.

Yakuza Kiwami Review

Does Yakuza Kiwami do the great franchise justice?

Yakuza Kiwami Review

Released back in January of 2016, Yakuza Kiwami is the complete remake of the first Yakuza series of games that are developed by the people over at Sega. The game takes place in Japan and focuses on Kazuma Kiryu, an individual that’s a member of the Yakuza, hence the name of the game. Currently, there’s a war going on between the 2 biggest clans in his hometown and it’s slowly getting more and more dangerous with every day that goes by. For the sake of his clan and to avoid unnecessary bloodshed, he goes out to mend the fighting between the 2 clans; whether they wish for him to or not.

Yakuza Kiwami Review yakuza kiwami review Yakuza Kiwami Review yakuza kiwami review 2

Gameplay for Yakuza Kiwami is similar to all of the other Yakuza games in the franchise and plays out like an action-adventure, with a focus on beat-em up combat. With plenty of different fighting styles for the player to choose from, there’s a lot of ways to approach each opponent that doesn’t necessarily require you to put them through a shop window for a change.

In terms of positives, Yakuza Kiwami is a really well designed entry point into a series that’s been out for quite some time now and the visuals alone is a great demonstration with how well they’ve done in this game. By using the power of the PS4, this title gets even more recognition because of it.

Yakuza Kiwami Review yakuza kiwami review Yakuza Kiwami Review yakuza kiwami review 3

Easily the biggest negative for the game is going to have to be the audio, at least the English audio specifically. The Japanese voice acting for this game is incredibly well done and just goes to show how much effort Sega put into this game, but the English voice recordings aren’t anywhere nearly as well done and should be avoided as best as possible; simply because they just pale in comparison.

As far as this remake has gone, Sega have done a great job with this Yakuza entry and makes it for an easy game to warrant a recommendation for!
