It felt awkward to have non-projectile, a little more realistic fighting gameplay while the game requires you to screw logic every now and then. But that's the beauty of it with Tekken. You didn't really need to think too much. I was in denial that I actually enjoyed Tekken 3 but found the whole long list of moves to be tireso…
