    Tekken's first appearance on a Nintendo console is a complete and outstanding success.

    TTT2 Wii U edition is an excellent example of how to best use the Wii U. The technical side of things is top notch, and the features of the Wii U game pad are brilliantly utilized. The new game modes and mini games are highly entertaining, and the whole package just oozes quality and effort.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition is a great fighting game. This version is as great as the others, and the nice extras are good enough to grant fun and laughters. If you're looking for a good fighting game for the new Nintendo console, this is your best choice.

    Due to a very large roster and the solid gameplay mechanics, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 closes with style this long chapter of the series.

    The Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U port is rather successful, although playing with the GamePad is not easy at first. Fortunately, shortcuts on the touch screen are nice, but that being said, nothing beats a good arcade stick of course! Another interesting point: you can play on the GamePad screen itself. Regarding game modes, the Mushroom Mode is good fun, but not for long, and the online mode works pretty well. In short, TTT2 on Wii U is as good as the other consoles versions, but its new features, funny at first, finally don't bring so much to the experience.

    It's far from a simple rehash of its ported cousins, and it manages to successfully carve out its own unique and compelling features that you won't find on the other iterations.

This game, like theAs a fan of the Tekken series, I absolutely adore this addition and being under the Wii U made it oh the more sweeter! This game, like the previous Tag Tournament game, isn't canon. It's just a spin off to enjoy just for content full of characters, both dead and alive, focuses on the swapping between characters, hence the name Tekken Tag Tournament, and the ever fluid gameplay with awesome backgrounds and music to fight to. If you like Snoop Dogg he's there in the background chilling out and having a track play in the background while you fight. It's a fun game to enjoy for fans of the Tekken franchise and newcomers. It's also added to the fun factor with a fun volleyball Nintendo themed mini game and you also get extra costumes that are Nintendo themed for each character. The only downside for the Nintendo costumes is the fact that the costumes are repeated. But then again, most of Nintendo's content involves the Zelda, Mario, and other fist party titles that get the most spotlight. Overall, it's fun and it's not meant for anyone to think that any of this is canon. Just a casual time for you and friends to enjoy. If you want the most out of it in terms of content, get the Wii U version. If you aren't a fan of Nintendo or don't own a Nintendo Wii U, you can get this on the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Trust me, this is a must have in your collection regardless of platform. Expand

The Mushroom mode is ok, and can get very confusing, but the inclusion of painting on characters and the Nintendo themed costumes make this port of the game superior by far. Tekken ball is ok, but the game itself is fun on all consoles. With a massive roster of characters, each character has their own entertaining ending. This game lasts a long time before it is complete. I have owned this game for around a year now, and still am not finished with it yet. Expand

(sorry I couldn't help but go there) Tekken appears on a Nintendo console for the first time and it is epic. The gamepad isn't used very well but the Nintendo themed bonus content and inclusion of the other versions dlc make this the best version of the game and if you have the choice, definitely get on Wii U as it's the one that gets the most bang for your buck.

There's a ton of content here and the Wii U exclusives are definitive, in my opinion. I'd have rated it higher except that it has surprisingly long loading times which are very jarring and make the otherwise smooth title feel glaring under-optimized. This is a great companion to Super Smash Brothers and offers a very different take on the genre, though it's exclusive Mushroom Battle can offer a surprisingly similar experience and there's a fun cast of characters to be found here as well.
