  1. If you like Tekken then you have to have this, the most, biggest, best bag of Tekken so far. A droolworthy launch title.
  2. While this game is Tekken three with tag team and better graphics, it really is a fun game to play. This is probably what Soul Calibur was to Dreamcast, although not as great.
  3. While Tekken Tag Tournament is one of the oldest fighters on the PS2, few of the later fighting games have come close to matching its quality.
  4. Although the fundamental Tekken formula has changed a little, the mind-blowing graphics will draw in even the most casual gamers.
  5. Although TTT doesn't innovate or provide tons of replay value options as Namco's Dreamcast opus "Soul Calibur," it is nearly perfect in what it does--and it is guaranteed to provide you with hours upon hours of solid fighting enjoyment.
  6. Not the system-launching revolution that it was perhaps cracked up to be. It is, however, a great fighting game, and a tremendous addition to any fighting fan's library.
  7. One big disk of suck. I could find better fighting games for the Atari.

    This is definatly a step up to the arcade version and quite possible my faviroute Tekken game in the series so far. Tekken Tag Tournament is the first instalment of the "Tag" series and brings back previous characters from the earlier Tekken games. The graphics have certainly boosted up a notch from the PS1 and Arcade versions, some of the stages are fantastic - pyramid temples, colosseum's and dojos. Gameplay is still the same as before, but there are some new fighting moves, different game modes to play and for the first time you can play as not one, but two characters in each fight. Not all characters are available to start off with, you have to unlock them in Arcade mode. Fight your way through 8 different stages by kicking, punching and wrestling each opponent and you will unlock a new character as well as a nice short theatre clip from each character you complete Arcade in. If you've played Tekken before, then most of the moves you'll know already but if you're new to the series, you may want to get some practicing done in Practice mode. You can change the difficulty settings if want to challenge yourself and become a master at the game. Of course this game wouldn't be Tekken without (my personal faviroute) multiplayer, where you and your friend can choose two different characters (4 altogether). Another new feature to this game is if you have a Multitap, you can have up to 4 players to make it even more enjoyable. You and your friends can get loads of aggressive fun, competing against one another to become the champion. If that wasn't enough for you why not play a much relaxing game of bowling, yes you heard me right bowling, something you might wanna try if you have a bad headache after all that anger and shouting from multiplayer. One thing that disappoints me is even though you can use two characters tag in each fight, the round ends after one of them is defeated rather than finish them both off. This would have been a nice option to let you configure this. Usually I would get bored of the same old repetitive fighting but it still manages to charm for the fourth time running. Expand

    Tekken Tag Tournament is amazing, it combines all 3 games characters together and if you unlock theater mode it pretty much sticks to the Storyline, so it is a must have (Well I would sy that I'm obsessed about The Tekken Series! Expand

    To put it simply, this is the best Tekken game since # 3. No more "oh sh** I'm running out of life," or "uh oh im running low." Cool abilities like when you use Devil and Kazuya. When you tag Kazuya turns into Devil and vice versa.T he throw tag combos are pretty neat and with like 33 characters it's full of surprises. I think Eddy is the best of all with his infinite combo kicks and Tiger is pretty awesome. Good attacks and good characters, some new characters and some originals. All in all I can't wait for Tekken 4 because if it's as good a tag ... Expand

    Why hasn't there been a 3-d fighting game that I liked? Out of all the fighting games I've played, the 2-d fighters just blow away any 3-d fighter out there. I mean Guilty Gear X is just the fastest, prettiest and best figher out there. Capcom vs. SNK 2 is another outstanding fighting game. 2-d fighters will always be THE best. Expand
