Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This contemporary anime installment of the Tekken franchise features all the fighting action the story world is known for. But the plot is also about Jin, and how he grows up negotiating the values taught to him by his mother, and the zealousness taught to him by his brutal grandfather, in order to succeed in the ring. It's an interesting narrative, but not quite developed thanks to being overshadowed by the endless violent fighting scenes. Meanwhile, the limited number of episodes, and the length of each one, reduces the appearances of characters that are popular in the gaming world. As a result, Tekken: Bloodline doesn't offer anything particularly insightful to impress those unfamiliar with the franchise, but differs from the video games in ways that might leave Tekken players dissatisfied with the overall series.
