Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is the eagerly awaited sequel to its predecessor Tekken Tag Tournament, which was released in 2000. Over ten long years have passed whilst Tekken fans all over the globe have waited with bated breath for this game, and finally, it's here. Revolutionised, revamped, and vastly superior to the first released over a decade ago, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is sure to make the wait worthwhile.
TTT 2 boasts the the largest character roster in Tekken history, with over 45 playable characters in total, including all 42 from Tekken 6. Old and familiar faces once again make an appearance, ranging from Jinpachi Mishima from Tekken 5, to True Ogre and the beloved Jun Kazama from the original Tekken Tag Tournament, amongst many others. This wide range of characters is a definite must have in this game, as combat relies completely on your talents and skills as a team.
Each player selects two characters to fight with, with the option to switch either out at any time within the battle. A nice little helping hand in this game is that whilst a character is inactive, they will gradually regain any health they lost during battle. A wide variety of attacks can be performed within this game, with combos being set up directly from tags, and extended tag combos and combined moves all playing a major part in crushing your foes. A new technique that has been introduced is the combined tag throws, which when performed correctly can set off a cut scene that will lead to your opponent being K.O.'d. These throws can also be escaped from, if you time it well. There are also tag throws/assaults, which can be done simultaneously with both characters performing the combo at the same time. There is a reintroduction of “bound” hits, which smash an airborne opponent in to the ground and allows the combo to be extended; this is made much more effective with the tag team aspect.
There is an innovative tag partner rage system within this game, which occurs when the character you're playing takes a certain number of hits. When this happens, the inactive character's bar flashes, indicating that they're fully charged; this means that when you tag this character in, they will have a strength boost induced in battle. The arenas in which you fight have also been improved, making them walled and interactive. The walls can break when a character hits them, opening up and leading the fight into a new area. Due to the tag team system, there are new rules of judging round wins or losses: a player will lose the round if either of their characters K.O., and if time runs out before a defeat then the player with the most health left combined will stand victorious.
Team up the best two characters and take down every opponent you come across in this fast-paced, hard hitting action packed game. Use agility, strength, and devise the best attack combinations that you can muster in order to be crowned the Tekken Tag Tournament champion. Despite how much time has been spent waiting for this sequel, it is more than worth it. (Cat Emerson)

Many years ago I played the hell out of Tekken 3 on the PlayStation and I really enjoyed it. I played some hours of Tekken 5 and a little bit of Tekken Tag Tournament 1. Tekken Tag Tournamet 2 is a lot of fun. The Tag-moves are a nice addition to the usual Tekken gameplay and the series totally went into the right direction. With 59 characters (of which very few are different versions of already existing characters, for example Kuma and Panda) and a lot of different modes you get everything you wish for. If you were ever into the Tekken series, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is a must-have!
After playing the originals, I decided to bite the bullet and buy this title. Massive roster of characters (40 +). Plenty of modes to choose from and the character customisation is an excellent touch to show off your editing skills in the online mode. All the original characters are there , Yoshimitsu, Paul Phoenix and the Laws. I also like the fact you can master tag combos to dominate your opponents. A must buy for all Tekken fans!
With almost 60 characters from the series' long history, tag battles that are also available for up to four players makes Tekken Tag Tournament 2 pretty much the Tekken to get out there. Can't vouch if TTT2 is tournament grade, but with friends or just playing alone, give this one a try.
There's not a really evolution about the game play in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, but all the new mechanics about the tags give this game a new wind of freshness that was really needed. Also, the training mode has been really improved, and in the command list there are a lot of new icons to help you choose your tools to deal with situations. Although the rage is still there, and it is now a much more vital part of the system, so if you didn't like the rage in Tekken 6 be, aware that now it's even more important. There's a new story mode to unlock FMV, a new laboratory mode to make your ideal warrior known, and all the online stuff that you need to fight with your friends.
I was worried that this Tekken Tag Tournament 2 game wouldn't meet my expectations. There are a high number of characters (almost every character from previous Tekken games) and new stages with some are even destroyable. The gameplay is very good, and the tag system works well. There's even a tutorial/story mode to learn how to use it. There is also a lot of customisation. You can customise every character's appearance, choose Combot's moves and if you don't like the soundtrack you can make one yourself with your own music files.
It is a really cool and well played fighting game. In my opinion it is a bit better then Tekken 6, because you have no lame story mode and you can fight in tags. The focus is on fighting and that's the point in Tekken. One thing I miss is that you cant save the videos of your fights.
TTT2 is a great 3D fighting game. Dozen and dozen of fighters (going to increase with free add on) and hundreds of ways to customize them. The graphycs are stunning and just some minor flaws (like the ground the build up by itself like any othe Tekken game) can't keep this game away from a 5 star rate.
What can I say? Better game engine, plenty of characters, free DLC, tag or solo mode - I'm gonna be hooked for a long time! Also, the achievements are not that hard to obtain, which is a big plus for me. I like the new customization mode, it gives you a plenty of options. It's a must buy for any fan of the series, but also for someone who never played Tekken before and wants to start.
What can I say, it's Tekken! If you like any of the others then it's pretty much the same game you know but with tag teams and more interactive stages to punch and kick your opponents through walls, floors and off ledges. The main new addition in this is the fight lab, where you take control of a com bot and learn to play the game and along the way create a character with your own move set by picking from any other characters move list for your combot.
I pre-ordered this the week before the Friday release date. It didn't arrive until the following Monday, which was a little disappointing, and the promised Kunimitsu DLC code was missing. I was quite annoyed at this point and emailed customer service. Customer service was very quick to sort out the problem, however. I received an apology, the DLC code I needed as well as a couple of free Tekken Tag - Themed avatar costumes. I rate this purchase as 4/5 stars purely because the game did not arrive on release day.
