Whither Tekken?

I got Street Fighter X Tekken from @SweetJP in the giveaway thread. The only Tekkens I’ve ever played are the original Tekken and Tekken 2 for PS1. This game does not play like those older ones at all. I’m not liking it either. And the game got really good reviews (if you ignore the people who haven’t figured out how to get the game to run on Windows 10).


This hews closely to the Street Fighter mechanics rather than Tekken, as it was developed by Capcom. I believe originally there was supposed to be a complementary release called Tekken X Street Fighter with the opposite design - the game would be developed by the Tekken team with Tekken mechanics - but that never saw the light of day.
