    Better Than The First

    This is the first Tekken game that I played, and the reason that I continued playing it really. There is a vast array of characters within it, and although not being too challenging, is stillenjoyable. There is a good st... Read Full Review

    in many terms this game is simply outstanding,addictive and superb

    only diff between tekken 2 and tekken 3 is that both feels very not similiar - the reason for that is the in game mechanics and graphics and how the figures (characters) play on screen** ** notice how this game p... Read Full Review

    Much better than the original yet looks small compared to Tekken 3

    Staying away from Jun Kazama was NEVER this hard!

    December 25, 1996 was when I was introduced to the Tekken series via a demo disc for the original PlayStation, but two characters were selectable from the start. 1996 was also the year of the last original Sonic the Hedg... Read Full Review

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

    Don't listen to that **** who gave this a 5.3 , to me it sounds like he just sucks at fighting games or something. When you do a review of an old game you need to compare it to what else was around at the time. I've play... Read Full Review

    Tekken 2

    The original Tekken, one of the first games to be released for the PlayStation, set a new standard for 3D fighters. Many games have since surpassed it, but there's no denying the original impact Tekken had on the gaming ... Read Full Review

    Tekken 2 is an arcade gem.

    I'm not sure where to start with Tekken 2, whether it be the amazing soundtrack, the wealth of characters, or the great gameplay. It may be an ancient game, it may be extremely outdated, but its still fun. The fightin... Read Full Review

    Brilliant, for it's time THIS was the BEST fighter out there bar none.

    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-throws came in for the fi... Read Full Review

    Easily the most overated Tekken game.

    Gameplay: The gameplay is said to be like other Tekken game while it's kind of true that gameplay is actually much slower and it takes long time to get up when you get knocked down and sometimes the CPU knocks you again ... Read Full Review
