    Well, when it comes to review a fighting game like Tekken, it's necessary doing it from the casual point of view and the fighting gamer (as myself) point of view.
    For the casuals: You probably will have fun customizing your character, unlocking endings, messing around with some combos, playing versus with some friends, etc.
    Sooner or later you might want to jump online because there
    Well, when it comes to review a fighting game like Tekken, it's necessary doing it from the casual point of view and the fighting gamer (as myself) point of view.
    For the casuals: You probably will have fun customizing your character, unlocking endings, messing around with some combos, playing versus with some friends, etc.
    Sooner or later you might want to jump online because there aren't any casual mode to play (like Tekken bowl, ball, force, etc), also you can play with a friend in your home and also online which is a huge plus.
    The problem of jumping online in this game huge for a casual, first, the game has useless moves in high level play but are totally noob killers, like King lows (which in high level are crappy) 10hit string combos that also are useless in medium-high level play, useless strings, seeable lows like the one that Law has, which again, is totally a noob killer but barely useful in medium-high play and an army of noobs using that moves because of the lack of information that the game provides for the one who uses it and the one who tries to counter it.
    And what the games provide to let you know how to deal with that situations? An awful fighting lab mode and an awful practice mode without character tutorials, without framedata and poor information about how the okizeme works, how and what use to punish, the use of red life an rage management, so if you wanna get better be ready to spend lots of time in internet looking information about your character, strategies, and even framedata which in my opinion is something that the game should provide (even the strategy guide from prima is awful and a complete waste of money)
    Do i recommend this game?If you liked the old ones this isn't very different and the game is fun to play with friends nd the single character content may satisfy so I would say that, I kinda recommend it
    From the fighting gamer point of view: You doesn't miss anything special if you skip Tekken, the retardedness of this game is huge sometimes (im nnot here to complain, test it and see what i mean).
    First, there are mid crushers, thats the most stupid thing i've seen in a 3D fighting game, what is the point of implementing attacks that makes some mids whiff? dafuk?! i mean, if you throw a mid, you do it with the intention that it hits either they stand or crouch, it cn be sidesteped but thats normal, but if i take a move like Heihachi b4 a full circular-homing move and mid what is the point of making it whiff to some retarded move that goes so close to the ground that makes it whiff? it has no sense even full circulars mids in the range has a chance to whiff thats completely stupid.
    Broken moves like EWGF, hello im an i13 that leave you at minus 4 on block and i can mess up almost 3/4 of your life, yeah if you get hit is your fault but everybody gets hit sooner or later, even the best.
    Risk/reward completely broken, some random hopkicks can get you far, i mean, they are i15, and only -13 on block (slighty punisheable) leads to devastating combos, low crushes, makes the game a starter fest and something like throw the move in the right situaion thing rather than, be careful and better read your opponent.
    Huge rooster, if you are pro at other fighting game and want to go on tekken prepare to spend lots of hours learning like 50 match ups, learning the useless 10hit of everyone because no matter how good you are, if you dont know the string you will get hit, but if you know it you will be able to punish it.
    Of course if you come from VF or BB you will miss a lot of necessary information within the game, like framedata good tutorials etc
    Do I recommend this game? No

    While Tekken Tag Tournament 2 definitely looks and sounds better than Virtua Fighter, its bells and whistles simply don't stand up to Virtua Fighters depth and game play. The game is fairly balanced, better than the Street Fighter series but some characters are very clearly much better than the others. The Rage mechanic feels very sloppy, I shouldn't be rewarded for losing the game itsWhile Tekken Tag Tournament 2 definitely looks and sounds better than Virtua Fighter, its bells and whistles simply don't stand up to Virtua Fighters depth and game play. The game is fairly balanced, better than the Street Fighter series but some characters are very clearly much better than the others. The Rage mechanic feels very sloppy, I shouldn't be rewarded for losing the game its like in a boxing match one person was losing but he gets a baseball bat because of it. The games technicality comes (mostly) within the movement and execution which I think is a bit shallow. I should be winning games because I out thought my opponent rather than have spent more time practicing a few commands.
    Onto the good: Really cool characters and large roster. The gameplay is still a ton of fun and its balanced better than MOST fighting games out there, but once again if you're looking for a game with all viable characters, character diversity, speed and balance Virtua Fighter is the prefered choice. 7/10

    This is the best Tekken game so far, but I got very bored playing it, this game is better when you're playing this with a friend, but if you play this game alone, you will get very bored...

    With enough variation of modes to opt for, including the new story-type mode Fight Lab (which is rather short, although it will help gamers learn the game's moves), Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has enough fighting gameplay for single-player and same-console multiplayer entertainment, especially with the strong controls and impressive visuals. However, the utter dismalness of Xbox Live (lack of) gameplay delivers a double-fisted punch to the face of Tekken Tag Tournament 2's quality.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is often cheap and barebones. However, it's also one of the most comprehensive fighting games I've ever played. With 59 characters and thousands of moves, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has been specifically designed with fans in mind. Newcomers will also enjoy the large roster and cinematic endings, but may find the online multiplayer unwelcoming!

    Even when this one is more the first Tekken Tag spin-off than anything else you will enjoy it because of its flawless fight system and "eternal" playability. [Oct 2012]
