Now here's a game in the series that I've got the least experience with. From what little I have played the installment via arcades, it definitely wasn't a bad Tekken entry and it was real damn tight to see Kazuya make his official return; when I say "official", that means Tag doesn't count taking into consideration its non-canon status. With that being said, what 4 managed to establish, 5 pretty much perfected.

To add to that, whilst the soundtrack's nowhere near as memorable as the PS1 Trilogy or Tag Tournament, I'd argue that the game's score is fairly underrated by comparison. "Didgerhythm," "The Strongest Iron Arena," "Bit Crusher," "Kitsch," "Authentic Sky..." These five pieces slap, *especially* the former three. Also find myself partial to "Jet" and "Fetus", which do a really fine job at setting the overall atmosphere for the game.

@CelestialOuroboros

Yeah, I find Tekken 4 is the odd duck in the series. It feels like a weird middle child between Tag (basically the culmination of the original trilogy with a shiny PS2 coat of paint) and 5 (which, as you say, is essentially the "perfected", fully realized vision of a modern-style Tekken game). Not bad, but it's a very "transitional" game, which helped pave the way for things to come.

It's also the only one I've never owned. Like you, I've only ever played it in arcades.

@NCZ The things that stood out to me in Tekken 4 was the direction of the story mode. It beckoned back to the days of Tekken 2 where the story got considerably darker. Not only that but the little mini biographies of the characters when you boot up the story mode helped flesh out the characters are bit more and we got insight as to what happened throughout the past 20 years.

The Mishima conflict was still the main focus but they also had Jin Kazama enrolled in this whole feud.

The one thing that stuck out to me the most was the ending movies. The characters actually speak and they were very dialogue heavy. And some of them were rather serious. I feel some of that was lost in later titles.

@Shaun Ince Agreed. Loved Paul's T4 ending. On a side note, I kinda like how most of Tekken 2's story was around the Mishima Zaibatsu and Kazuya Mishima.
