    OK I was exaggerating - Tekken 4 is great and pretty fun to play. However, I played it with a known VF and Tekken guru and he believes Tekken 4 is merely what Tekken 3 SHOULD have been. The new fighter, Steve, is quite innovative in terms of control, as he has no kick-based techniques and the kick buttons instead activate defensive or evasive movements. The backgrounds look great, but c'mon - VF2's backgrounds looked great, had the same level of detail, and were true 3D.

    If you ask me - Tekken 4 is going to be great, but it's six years behind the Virtua Fighter series, because this stuff has all been seen before in VF2, with the exception of walls which we saw in Fighting Vipers a year after VF2 anyway.

    What annoys me is that the mainstream media and even the specialist press probably won't even touch on this - as far as they're concerned, this is the new Tekken, so it rules, and it's instantly better than VF4 because... er, we can't play VF4 and... it's Tekken!

    Hopefully VF4's PS2 appearance will do a lot to kick this ignorance out of its comfy spot.
