The Black Sheep of the series takes a step forward...
Being a fighting game, it offers the usual assortment of modes: Story Mode is an 8 to 9 VS ladder with a narrated prologue and an animated ending for each of the 20 characters, Arcade and Time Attack are two variations of the time-based enemy ladder, VS, VS Team, Survival, Training and a Practice mode in which you can attempt to perform the simpler strings while timed for each character. There's also a beat'em up mini game, Tekken Force, which is rather good, for what it is, and gets really challenging near the end. It's a good offering, and it's bound to keep players busy.
That said, there's a little big issue with Tekken 4... the fact that Tekken 5, 6, Tag 2 and 7 exist. As much as I adore it, the game has expanded every character's movesets massively, after playing future games it's hard to come back to the smaller movesets. While I'll defend Tekken 4 for the rest of my life, it's hard to recommend to someone who has already skipped it as something else than a curiosity.
