    Of its time it was the king of 3d fighting games and is still fun.

    Rated on January 05, 2006 by Ryan_Gaston

    Rated on June 16, 2007 by kazuyasongoku

    Love, sex, murder, supernatural themes & betrayel, in a fighting game? You bet. Tekken 2 brought more characters, music, bone crunching moves and stages then it's previous incarnation. Multi-throw...
