    If you like Tekken then you have to have this, the most, biggest, best bag of Tekken so far. A droolworthy launch title.
  2. While this game is Tekken three with tag team and better graphics, it really is a fun game to play. This is probably what Soul Calibur was to Dreamcast, although not as great.

    From the revamped graphics to the refined gameplay, this is arcade fighting at its best.
  4. Although the fundamental Tekken formula has changed a little, the mind-blowing graphics will draw in even the most casual gamers.
  5. Although TTT doesn't innovate or provide tons of replay value options as Namco's Dreamcast opus "Soul Calibur," it is nearly perfect in what it does--and it is guaranteed to provide you with hours upon hours of solid fighting enjoyment.

    The US version of Tekken Tag Tournament is without flicker, or as some people call them: "jaggies".

    One big disk of suck. I could find better fighting games for the Atari.

    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 isThis 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

The graphics This is the best fighting game on the planet and is the only title needed for the PS2, but all in all it is the best PS2 title.

    Why hasn't there been a 3-d fighting game that I liked? Out of all the fighting games I've played, the 2-d fighters just blow away Why hasn't there been a 3-d fighting game that I liked? Out of all the fighting games I've played, the 2-d fighters just blow away any 3-d fighter out there. I mean Guilty Gear X is just the fastest, prettiest and best figher out there. Capcom vs. SNK 2 is another outstanding fighting game. 2-d fighters will always be THE best. Expand
