You Might Want to Practice Your Pokken Skills
After watching the opening movie, I decided that I might want to find out how the game controlled. So, I want to the practice mode! I’ll tell you about that mode and how yesterday I went back and practiced even more. Time to talk about Pokken Tournament!
I’m not a big fighting game fan. I loved Super Smash Bros and Tekken, but usually I’m playing an rpg or a sim. So for me, it was important to have a handle on Pokken’s controls! I looked around the menu and spotted the Practice mode right away. The first lesson is basic and so thats where I started.
The first thing I noticed was that Pokken’s advisor character is extremely annoying. Her voice really got to me, so I was happy when I finally figured out how to shut that off. During the tutorial, I had no idea how to turn it off, so I had to put up with her. The tips she gives during this tutorial are pretty handy. Learning about the basic controls is important. I’m sure I could have picked up on some of this myself, but it was nice to know what each button did! There are a lot of cool moves you can pull off in Pokken. The tutorial helped me and I recommend it for newbies and pros alike. It never hurts to sharpen your skills!
Speaking of sharping skills, yesterday I went back and checked out Practice mode again. The second mode showed some more advanced and cooler moves to pull off. The picture above was taken during the second Practice mode. I really loved the move where you pick up another character and throw them! That was awesome.
Practice mode just gives you a glimspe of what Pokken is like. Most of the time, the CPU character doesn’t fight you back during Practice mode. The real test for Pokken is whether or not the actual gameplay modes are any good. So is Pokken a good game? Well…you’ll have to wait for my review to find out!
I’ll be back tomorrow with a look at the local multiplayer mode. I played it with my mom first and then my dad. How did that go? I’ll tell you about it tomorrow!
