Each character has a unique fighting style, and these styles keep getting inherited on every sequel, most noticeable Paul, Jack, Yoshimitsu and Law. The Playstation version actually expands the arcade version, adding ending movies and extra characters. There is an arcade version in Tekken 5 as part of the bonus arcade history games, Tekken 2 and 3 are also included.
If you enjoyed games like Rival Schools, Mortal Kombat 4 or Dead or Alive, you definately need to play this.
As for Tekken the original game:
(keep in mind that I haven't played tekken in a long time, and this is my first time playing tekken 1.)
PROS: This is where it all began so it was nice to see how it started
You get to see and play the original characters
You get to see how their stories began
and have fun learning their techniques(a pro and con)
CONS: The character's endings are very short and if you don't have the manual you may get confused on how this has to do with the characters.
There are no voices at the end, you just hear the same music
The graphics aren't that good, but keep in mind it's the original
Mostly a bunch of button pushing
You don't get to unlock any extra characters
and you have to learn a lot of moves on your own (a pro and con)
Overall I would say it isn't a must get, but if you want to see how the story began and are intrested in starting from the beginning then it isn't a waste of money. But I would mention that if it is just their stories you were intrested in then just look online and you can see all their stories in a total of 4 minutes. I don't regret my desicion, but I wouldn't get it again. This said it is likely I would play it again just for kicks.
