    Tekken Tag Tournament is the most polished and well thought through part in the Tekken series. It doesn't matter if you're playing alone or together: everything is about fun and competition. And the lack of gimmicks, like a story mode, show that this game doesn't need anything more than strong core gameplay.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is definitely a solid package. The robust cast of fighters, ample amount of stages and sheer plethora of content make it worth the price of admission alone. Factor in the depth of the fighting and promised DLC, and you have a game that could occupy you for a long, long time.

    TTT2 might simply be seen as a (huge) collection of characters and stages for Tekken fans, but it's much more: the Fight Lab's got great potential for Namco's brawler newcomers, while the new tactical approach reached by the Tag interactions and the many available modes – including a strong if basic online support - will keep the interest high for every Tekken fan.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 doesn't overhaul the franchise's format, instead opting to retain the series' already-solid gameplay and avoid extraneous modes that detract from the core fighting focus.

    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.

    I'd love to tell you that Namco has breathed a ton of new life into this ailing franchise with TTT2, but it's just not really the case. It's still a fantastic fighting game that will sell plenty of copies to the series' fans, but it's not a fantastic choice to start with if you're looking to get into fighting games.
  7. 70
    As a catchall franchise compilation, Tekken Tag 2 works for fans who aren't seeking anything too radically different, delivering plenty of fighters and solid fun, even if it's traversing well-worn territory.

In comparison to Mortal Kombat that has been very very ridiculous in story and stupid game play, This game is superb! Item Moves is really the thing you can enjoy with! Huge set of costumes and advanced settings to set colors are the most interesting parts that makes this game really enjoying and you won't be tired playing it all night long!
    New characters such as Forest and Jun are fantastic and you'll enjoy playing them. Also if you have DLC characters you can experience more superb characters and great movements in this game!
    If you are a real fighter and enjoy fighting games, this game is the best choice for you!

    Pretty fun game. I'm a bit casual so for me the pluses are the amount of characters you get as well as the solid story and game play as wellPretty fun game. I'm a bit casual so for me the pluses are the amount of characters you get as well as the solid story and game play as well as the amount of modes. The only bad part is that it's not for the casual gamer. Expand

    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 (asWell, 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

    The ONLY question you should ask yourself before buying this game is:

    Are you good in fighting games...good enough to handle the steep learning curve that Tekken T.T. 2 moves have to offer? If your answer happens to be a "yes" then be prepared, because this is no walk in the park. This game will consume most of your time making you either be really good at it or have you quit out of frustration and never look back.

    Tekken T.T 2 is certainly NOT FOR THE CASUAL GAMER that might want to pick it up and have fun right out the package alas the Dead or Alive series. It's obvious that the developers made this with the intention of making you understand fully how the mechanics of the game really work...but at the expense of having the curious/amateur gamer run away from it. IN REALITY WE HAVE GIRLFRIENDS / BOYFRIENDS, FAMILY MEMBERS THAT ARE NOT GOOD AT ALL IN FIGHTING GAMES THAT WOULD LIKE TO TRY IT FOR FUN AND GET THE MECHANICS DOWN IN QUICK AND FUN MANNER....UNFORTUNATELY, TEKKEN T.T.2 IS NOT FOR THEM...and that's why It's very hard for me to give this new entry a higher score just because of that...

    Part of me is glad to see the developers stuck to the technicalities of what Tekken is suppose to be...BUT then it also makes me realize that games like this one narrows everything down to a small number of people that are already good at the game (or to the true persistent) NOT GIVING MUCH OF A CHANCE TO THE CASUAL GAMER TO FALL IN LOVE WITH IT. Assuming you're great at Tekken or fighting games in general, then this game is your dream come true, it's full of options to customize your character, plenty of characters to choose from and good graphics, but then how much fun is to play a fighting game on your own if you can't play it with just anyone...unless you fake it and let them win every time they smash the buttons trying to pull off any of the unfriendly combos system.

    You have been WARNED!
