What Gamespot Users have to say about Tekken 5

  • User Rating 6.8

    Tekken 5 is not The Best in the series, but still a solid fighting game

    Rated on December 25, 2005 by pavel_btn

    If I had to compare all Tekken games release up to date, my favorite is definitely Tekken Tag Tournament. Tekken 5, in my opinion, somehow doesn't have the appeal of a beat-em-up. Don't get me...

    Only one problem...Jinpache not a playable character...

    Rated on December 25, 2005 by mr_killer_man

    This game can be a pain to your hands as you try to win with players you don't use very often. Expect to get beating a lot and maybe some perfects. Jinpache has a move that stops you dead in your tra...

    The best in the series. Too bad there's no online.

    Rated on July 13, 2006 by rebelious

    Bringing back the mechanics of Tekken 3 and enhancing the performance make Tekken 5 the best in the series so far. Almost all the characters return from the old Tekkens. The gameplay is simple to lear...

    Punch... Kick... Another Punch... and Devil Jin raises his wings to proclaim victory!

    Rated on July 15, 2006 by ruipaulo

    Tekken 5 is one of the best fighting I've ever played, and I'll never apologise for the money I spent (20 euros, an extremely low price for the quality and inspiration involved on this game). I haven'...

    Sorry but i hate this game, Tekken is probably the worst series of fighting games ever made, and 5 fails to redeem.

    Rated on March 30, 2008 by tantreval

    I don't own this game, i wouldn't in my right mind spend any amount of money on it, i was tempted to rate it zero but i thought i'd be nice and give a more than generous 2. A friend came over for a sl...

    OMG, NAMCO keeps improving themselves, and they have not disappointed me yet, and TEKKEN 5 is no exception...

    Rated on December 27, 2005 by CooperTeam

    NAMCO has always gone a step beyond every time they have come out with a Tekken game, and each time, I have never been disappointed. Tekken has been one series that TOTALLY BEATS DOA series, even Virt...
