OK I tried to get this game last month, damn otaku always beat me to the punch. Now that I got my grubby mitts on it, I am ready to declare this the greatest fighting game ever. Yes, yes, I have Virtua Fighter 4. Great game, almost flawless. But VF4 is like a well balanced meal with all the garnishing. T4 is like a bucket of Ice Cream and some take out Pizza. Sometimes you just want to pig out. I've only had VF4 for a few weeks but it is alreading collecting dust. I feel sorry for you all on the other side of the pond, you have to wait untill the fall or X-mas to get it. For all you importers, Tekken 4 story lines and menus are in english, in the case of the anime openings and endings it's spoken in (funny) English with Katakana charactors. The Tekken force mode plays better then The Bouncer. (although Bouncer has some of the greatest graphics) hopefully they will give the U.S. something extra as I intend to buy that too.
This year should be the best year for fighting games ever with SSB Melee, Tekken 4, VF4, Mortal Kombat, Soul Caliber 2, and hopefully a a sequel to Eternal Champions.
After reading Ebert's glowing review, I decided to check out "Frailty" Friday night. Although it doesn't live up to Ebert's hype, it's a pretty interesting flick. It's about a widower with two young kids.
