  • Summary: Finally, the biggest, baddest bruiser of them all goes portable! And it's all here... the vicious combos, the killer graphics, and the greatest fighters. Practive your technique, remember to sidestep, and pray your skills are up to the challenge. Nothing compares to the massive bone crunching moves and brutal face-poundings of the King of Iron Fist Tournament. Expand

  1. It is incredible! I have not enjoyed a portable game this much since the Game Boy Advance's launch.
  2. 90
    Special mention going to the sound effects and music which are superb, every blow and block is recreated whilst a thumping tune plays in the background.
  3. 88
    Easily one of the most technically impressive GBA games out there, and probably the best portable fighter as well.
  4. Compared to the massive rendered cutscenes in "Tekken 3," Tekken Advance looks like a small-scale side story of the series, rather than a fully-fledged sequel.
  5. 80
    Namco may have had to cut a few corners to fit the 3D fighter onto Nintendo's handheld, but the end product looks and feels enough like the original game to succeed.
  6. 80
    By combining solid pixel animations with awesome scaling and rotation effects, the developers have achieved an impressive, psuedo-3D effect.
  7. 58
    Tekken loses out big time by not supporting the GBA's one-cartridge multiplayer feature. [Feb 2002, p.172]

    Impressive graphics and sound! Fantastic gameplay, and ten classic fighters. (Nina, Jin, Law, Paul, King, Hwoarang, Yoshimitsu, Jack, Xiaoyu, and Heihachi as a secret character). A bit short on characters and arenas, but thats just a minor flaw. If you find it, buy it. Expand

    Its near perfect. Its got impressive graphics, sound, and gameplay. My only complaint was the small amont of playable characters. Its tons of fun.

    Tekken Advance is a surprisingly thorough version of the console games, something you don't see as often as you should. Pros: Excellent graphics, control, and audio; a limited, but handy variety of fighters and arenas. Cons: Very limited, from modes to unlockable content. Expand
