While this fighting game doesn't have the depth of its console or computer counterparts, its solid controls do make this one of the better brawlers for mobile systems. Like other versions, this version of Tekken casts you as one of the colorful contestants of the King of Iron Fist tournament. Using simple controls, it does a good job of replicating this popular and long-running series, especially since it adds a card system that lets you deploy special attacks. It also features numerous colorful characters to play as, along with a lot of interesting locations to have them duke it out. But longtime fans of the series may not like how it also employs many tenets of free-to-play games -- like how your characters don't regain their health in between fights; you have to heal them with pickups you buy or earn. This version also doesn't have a deep combo attack system like the ones played at home. Still, if you love fighting games and need something to work out the frustrations of your commute, Tekken is one fight club you'll want to talk about.
