    The best BEU of its time and still enjoyable but has some basic flaws in its gameplay and AI (you can beat the computer just by using the low kick over and over). Very good but dated.

    Tekken 2 isn't perfect, although it sure comes close. As it stands, it's one of the best fighters available for the PlayStation. If you like fighting games at all, you will love Tekken 2. The graphics and fluent character movement will amaze

    This game is amazing for it's time, even though some of the music is rehashed it's so good that i don't care. The fighting is so complex, but not impossible to learn (i played it the first time as a five year old). A lot happended since the first one, a lot of new modes like team play, survival, time attack and practice with combolists. Many new characters and character endings, updatedThis game is amazing for it's time, even though some of the music is rehashed it's so good that i don't care.

    Tekken 2 is a good game and a improvement to tekken 1. It had great characters, great graphic and the gameplay was also very good. Of course now its outdated but back then it was a good fighting game.

    It's not a game you'd want to be playing now there's superior versions in the form of Tekken 5 (gameplay and graphics) and Tekken Tag 2 (which is coming out very soon and featuring tons of old characters) but Tekken 2 manages to remain a fun fighting game with the great stories, the colourful stages, the incredibly catchy music and the overall feel of it.

It's definitely not perfect (when you press a button expect to wait a second before your character actually responds and the AI ranges from too easy to impossible) but it's the best in the series and worth playing for sure.

    Anybody who is a fan of fighting games needs to pick this up. This is one of the best Tekken games and really should not be overlooked for 3D fighting games.

  1. The fighting engine is awesome. The graphics are awesome. The characters' moves are awesome. This game just plain kicks ass.
  2. Wickedly sick action, amazingly fast gameplay, mother of all.... What more is there to say? Tekken 2 rules! The undeniable king of fighting games is here, and it's time to break bones and necks.
  3. This game take the PlayStation to a new level of excellence. The graphics are the most fluid and detailed yet seen. The gameplay is even hotter than the original.
