Tekken 7 has not disappointed since it came out, getting plenty of praises from fans and critics alike. No one should be surprised about the praise for the battle system, since it’s still the best 3D fighter around. One of the game’s newest additions, the Rage Arts, was a good one, though they can look odd in some angles.
As most fans know, the Rage Arts are cinematic super moves, similar to the ones seen in Street Fighter. However, some curious gamers shared a video with Event Hubs, where they removed the cinematic camera angles for the moves. The results are really odd, as they tend to show some bugs or glitches, which are kind of funny.
Without the cinematic camera angles, the Tekken 7 Rage Arts look really messy, despite the beautiful character models. Opponent’s can disappear, black boxes can glitch out of nowhere and it’s really weird to look at honestly. It’s something players can watch, but also a feature that doesn’t need to be equipped for better fights.
Funnily enough, the game only allows these arts after the player’s chosen character is much weaker, having a bright flashing red health bar. One can imagine how much work was done to get all of those weird looking finishers for recording. Then again, it could have been simply captured on PC with some modifications.
Tekken For Granted
Considering how odd the moves look, it’s easy to see why fans might have taken these Rage Arts for granted. Admittedly, some of them can be pretty tame, like Jin Kazama’s basic combo, but they do look infinitely better with the cinematic camera. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t an interesting point of view, but it’s clear that some things are better in different angles.
Tekken 7 has done really well for itself, gaining plenty of positive reviews, possibly making it the best fighter of 2017. Injustice 2 might have the better Story Mode, but Tekken 7 does offer fans a fascinating journey through the Mishima bloodline. Overall, if you’re a Tekken fan, you should get the game and see what the fuss is all about.
Tekken 7 is available now on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, with the latter being the best system for it. It’s easy to see why fans have fallen in love with the game, thanks to the gorgeous visuals and endless replayability offered.
