    Whether it's learning the ropes with Combot, attempting to best a challenging arcade mode, taking on tag teams with friends, or going global with 'World Tekken Federation', the package is always entertaining. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is undoubtedly one of the deepest and most entertaining fighting games in years, proving that like a well-oiled tag team, both quality and quantity can coexist in perfect harmony.

    Harada and his team decided to go back to the basics of what made the Tekken Series so popular among the fighting community, without completely abandoning the speed of the latest incarnations. The result is a finely crafted and neatly balanced title, that deserves a spot among the best of the genre. For a gamer who loves the competitive side of fighting games, this is definitely the best Tekken of the bunch, especially if said gamer loves to play online.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is perfect. It is. There will still be many philosophical discussions, if it is better than Tekken, Street Fighter or some other fighting-game, but the reason for that is that all these games have reached such a high level of quality and none of them has a clue how to break out to the top.

    Even with a somewhat bare-bones online offering, it's still one of the most refined fighters on the market.

    In some ways Tekken Tag Tournament 2 feels like a waypoint before the next REAL Tekken game. Still, there is a huge roster of fighters and the same tight technical gameplay that is the hallmark of the series. Series fans will be pleased.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2's kitchen sink approach could have turned this game into a messy jumble of modes, characters, and features. Instead, this massive fighting game looks downright elegant. It's a polished, vibrant fighter with very few faults.

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is not a bad fighting game, but I would rather play almost any other fighting game that came out this year before it. I didn't find the fun that I was looking for, and considering that this is a $60 retail title, I find it hard to recommend over games like Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, Persona 4: Arena, or even the older Tekken 6.

    Tag Tournament 2 is a real treat for a long-time Tekken fan with a huge roster full of old faces returning that haven't appeared since TekkenTag Tournament 2 is a real treat for a long-time Tekken fan with a huge roster full of old faces returning that haven't appeared since Tekken 2, and a fun, fast-paced gameplay. The only flaw is that there's no real story mode, so it may feel uninspired to just play Ghost Battle for months. Customization is also limited compared to Tekken 6. Expand

Tekken Tag 2 provides players with a large roster to choose from, large stages to fight in and, in my opinion a catchy sound track. The game does have a steep learning curve and is not just a casual/simple fighting game that you can pick up an play. However, if you like fighting games then don't let that fact deter you from enjoying a solid game. While the online resources for this game are small, they are growing rapidly. When playing online against other people, I have encountered little to no latency. This game can be boiled down into one word, FUN. Expand

    Wonderful graphics, biggest roster, free dlc. Are great. But the customization was bad. Some of the clothes dont even fit to the characters.Wonderful graphics, biggest roster, free dlc. Are great. But the customization was bad. Some of the clothes dont even fit to the characters. They focused way too much for equiping stupid things like rail guns, knives. Funny first, annoying later. The biggest problem that i had was that during 2 player quick rematch option. The game loads again. Its so annoying, i just want to get back into the game. Tekken 6 had long loading screens but at least its quick rematch was without any delay. Thats why i cant give this game more than 7.5 Expand

    Did you like Tekken 6? Well.. I definitely didn't like it. I wanted something more like Tekken 2 or Tekken 3. Well then they come out withDid you like Tekken 6? Well.. I definitely didn't like it. I wanted something more like Tekken 2 or Tekken 3. Well then they come out with Tournament 2... you expect alot and that's why you are reading this right now. I swear.... xD :.. OMG... ahahahhahahahahhaha.... this is Tekken 6 but instead of you vs the computer it's you and A PARTNER vs the computer... Or else it's the saaaaaaaaaaaaaaame as Tekken 6. This SUCKS! This is Tekken. It's big.. why the heck are they doing this if the fans didn't like Tekken 6? Why the FACK screw this project totally up? It could just be an add-on. It's like getting a knife through my heart.. for real :D Normally I can't talk like this when I'm playing Tekken but this is just TOO much. I hope we will get a TOTALLY DIFFERENT NEW TEAM to develope the next Tekken 7. Get it... this new style isn't fun. Give what we liked. Give Tekken 3. Don't start from scratch and give us something totally new which we didn't even like in the beginning. Don't make the Fable 2 and Fable 3 mistake just as Microsoft did. Come back with Fable 1 because we liked THAT game. We liked Assassins Creed 3 because it was similar with their past series. What the heck are you doing?!!! Expand
