  1. The fighting engine is awesome. The graphics are awesome. The characters' moves are awesome. This game just plain kicks ass.
  2. Wickedly sick action, amazingly fast gameplay, mother of all.... What more is there to say? Tekken 2 rules! The undeniable king of fighting games is here, and it's time to break bones and necks.
  3. This game take the PlayStation to a new level of excellence. The graphics are the most fluid and detailed yet seen. The gameplay is even hotter than the original.

    The backgrounds are definitely more involved this time around, replacing the barren Virtua Fighter I-style backdrops with detailed, and occasionally moving, fighting arenas. And the light sourcing! It has to be seen to be believed.

    Blocky 3D brawler borrowed from "Virtua Fighter" to bring grade-A whoop ass to Sony's console. [Jan 2004, p.189]
  6. Good in the sense that it means anyone can instantly pick it up and perform miraculous feats of head-cleaving prowess. But bad because it means you can effortlessly plough straight through it without having to work very hard.
  7. Characters are more varied and numerous, the moves possible with each of these characters is multiplied many fold, and the environments which they interact are certainly more detailed.

    This game is amazing for it's time, even though some of the music is rehashed it's so good that i don't care. The fighting is so complex, butThis game is amazing for it's time, even though some of the music is rehashed it's so good that i don't care. The fighting is so complex, but not impossible to learn (i played it the first time as a five year old). A lot happended since the first one, a lot of new modes like team play, survival, time attack and practice with combolists. Many new characters and character endings, updated and new fighting mechanics like the counter system (though only Jun has this feature). Expand
