I love my
"badass" fighters... AKA the serious martial artists of Tekken.
They're the reason I got into Tekken. However, an
entire game filled with only those types would get redundant. Tekken has
always been about "variety," and Chloe is definitely that.
While I've mixed feelings about her look (and I'm slightly weirded-out by that cat-arm
jacket)... her moveset is flashy and entertaining (especially that breakdancing business. Duck
King says hi btw)! In a weird way, she also kinda reminds me of a Fighting
Vipers character (that's a good thing).
Chloe will be a
tough design for some Western gamers to accept. Clearly, this one is
directed more towards the Japanese audience. But before you decide
to hate her... just think back on past "unexpected" designs that came into Tekken. Yoshi? Bob? Alisa?
Ogre? Those guys stirred things up and were entirely different / "WTF" characters when they
first arrived, but they
all found their place in
Tekken and appeal to certain players. Gotta remember Tekken
aims to appeal to different cultures & genders, too. She has potential, if
her story makes sense.
