    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 a great fighter, one of the best ever made. The combat is solid, the variety of modes allows for a lot of hours playing, and it looks beautiful for a game that came out in the year 2000.

    More characters, more moves, four-player tag battle, and more. Graphically, the game has taken a very large leap. Overall great Tekken Tag Tournament is a great game.

    I am not a huge fan of fighting games but the I still enjoyed the Tekken series. Tekken Tag Tournament is one of the few fighting games I've owned because it is one of the best. Battling in teams of two characters and having over 35 fighters to choose from, this game was always a blast to play. TTT offered some of the best combos in the series and Unknown was one of the coolest bosses. Also, they enhanced the graphics and offered 2 new modes, team battle up to 8 characters with tag rules, and a "Tekken Bowl" bowling game. Expand

    Solid fighting mechanics and nice introduction into tag-team fighting. Great selection of character. However it really doesn't feel like it has much else to offer. Little to no extra features. No real story mode. This game felt more like it belonged in an arcade than on a console.

    A good idea, but it just felt a bit unfinished. It felt more like an expansion than an actual
    game of its own. Expand

  1. One big disk of suck. I could find better fighting games for the Atari.
  2. Currently the high water mark for the PS2.
  3. If you like Tekken then you have to have this, the most, biggest, best bag of Tekken so far. A droolworthy launch title.
