  1. A perfect, smooth version of a great fighting game, and not much else.

    Tekken 3D Prime Edition it's perfect to play against your friends with wireless connection but it lacks about single player modes.

    Tekken 3D Prime Edition is graphically impressive and provides a lot of fun due to its huge roster. The main problem is its lack of modes and the crazy lag during the online matches. You should buy it if you love this franchise and if you are planning to play it with a friend.

    Technical achievements set Tekken 3D Prime apart from other 3DS games in the genre. Visuals aside, it fails to meet expectations.

    Tekken 3D Prime Edition has everything needed for a great Tekken game except content. And that ultimately makes it boring to play in the long run.

    Sixty frames per second in 3D is indeed a marvelous technical achievement and Tekken 3D: Prime Edition deserves praise for reaching that goal. It's just too bad the game never bothered with building a deck around its ace.

    So, what do you get for your money? Beyond standard fighting or five, 10 and (ultimately) 20 fighter survival modes, not very much at all...Clearly there are enough Tekken fans out there to justify the conversion but it all simply boils down to pixels slapping pixels and that gets very boring, very quickly.

Very nice graphics and frame rate, huge choice of contestants and still the same perfect fighting formula of Tekken. I can't rate the multiplayer as I still have to test it, but I guess fighting online will be awesome. My only concern is the lack of modes and the lack or video replays. If you love Tekken, you wont be disappointed with this title. Expand

    Think about it like Tekken 6, except, minus the things FROM Tekken 6. It still has all of the characters from that game, but no costumeThink about it like Tekken 6, except, minus the things FROM Tekken 6. It still has all of the characters from that game, but no costume customization, significantly less modes, & the worst online, I've ever seen for a game. The 3D in this game is probably the best I've ever seen! Possibly better than Pilotwings Resort! Just..... don't watch the movie. Expand

    No Arcade mode in a 2D fighting game is like a KFC that doesnt sell chicken.
    The game is only saved by its gameplay and graphics
    The gameplay is great and so is the graphics

    Tekken 3D Prime Edition is disappointing. That's the only way I can sum such a lazy and unoriginal port up. No single player story, noTekken 3D Prime Edition is disappointing. That's the only way I can sum such a lazy and unoriginal port up. No single player story, no incentivised content outside collectible cards, (with admittedly admirable attempts at using streetpass) lagging and anaemic multiplayer options, no new characters. There's just no real selling point to 3D Prime Edition for true Tekken fans. But the game does redeem itself for actually portraying a decent Tekken game within its gameplay and graphics. Though stages are few and far too repetitive, the grapphics themselves are true to what we've come to know from Tekken games. The gameplay also retains the fast paced juggles and relentless grapple moves we've come to know. In short T3DPE is a good Tekken game wrapped up in a lazy, docile and derivative port. Not even the free Tekken Blood Vengeance short film can save such a meagre offering. Expand

Instead you get QuickThe single player aspect was lost in this version of Tekken. This could have been so much more with a good story mode. Instead you get Quick Battle mode and absolutely no CG cut scenes that made the Tekken series shine. The graphics are really sharp and the 3d does work well for this game. I give it a five due to the fact that there is not much of a single player experience here. Expand

    I played lots of Tekken-Games. This is the most bad Tekken, I've ever played. In the Singleplayer-mode there is hardly something to do. NoI played lots of Tekken-Games. This is the most bad Tekken, I've ever played. In the Singleplayer-mode there is hardly something to do. No Character to unlock neither Stages. The only thing you can unlock are some kind of "Trading Cards", which won't help you at all.
    The Fighting-system is excellent. And the Multiplayer-Mode also is pretty nice. But a Beat em up like Tekken should be a "Long-Time-Game". I played it 5 hours and I've seen pretty much everything.
