Oh crap, i love this game. I remember that there was a Tekken-Arcade thingy in a amusementpark. I paid €9,- every week to get in and play some Tekken (€9,- for entrance - While i didn't even went in the rollercoasters - and lost more then €10,- while playing Tekken... My pocket still hurts) Okay, enough wining and bullsh**-talk, let's start this review!

Okay, these are the following characters in Tekken 2:

As you can see, Tekken 2 had a great roster. My favorites where Kunimitsu and Devil, too bad you couldn't see them in Tekken 3.

The most fascinating thing about Tekken 2: Her story. (I mean, haven't you seen that Tekken movie? Nay? WELL GO SEE IT!) I mean, here, in Tekken 2, the story officialy begins. (Believe me, it got me hooked, hehe)

*** Tekken's 2 story***
A worldwide martial arts tournament was nearing its finale. A large purse of prize money which was to be awarded to the fighter who could defeat Heihachi Mishima in the final round provided incentive for warriors from all over the globe.

Financed and sponsored by the giant financial groups, the Mishima Zaibatsu, the first Tekken tournament began with eight fighters, all of whom had emerged victorious in death matches held all over the world, all motivated by different motives, all possessing the skill and power to crumble mountains.

Many battles were fought. But only one lone warrior emerged with the right to challenge Heihachi Mishima for the of King of the Iron Fists.
This warrior was Kazuya, Heihachi's cold blooded son. Bearing the scar given to him by Heihachi, he enters into vicious combat with his father on the same field where Heihachi last struck down his own son and dropped him into a trench at age five.

After a grueling battle which raged on for hours, Kazuya emerged victorious by utilizing the skills which had been passed down from generation to generation of the Mishima clan.

As Heihachi's broken body lay on the ground, Kazuya dropped to his knees and slowly lifted his father into his arms. Walked slowly to the edge of the same cliff where his father had left him to die, stared out over the landscape of all that was now his, and let go of his father's body. As Heihachi's body plummeted, Kazuya's smile gleamed in the sunlight...

One year has passed. The Mishima Zaibatsu under Kazuya's leadership has become even more powerful with its tendrils reaching to all corners of the world. Soon after his father's apparent death, Kazuya disappears into the shadows. However, rumors of his immense power, and a dark side, slowly begin to spread throughout the world.

Exactly one year after the end of the first Tekken, a message is relayed from the Mishima Zaibatsu fortress to news agencies all over the world announcing a second tournament with a prize a thousand times that of the first.

So begins the tournament... *
Hmm, sounds good, DIDN'T IT? :D ---

^ True. When i played Tekken 2 for the first time (long time ago, as if you may know), i was just a lil' kiddie (very little!). I went to my uncles house, (mean uncle) who had a PSone. I remember which games he had: Rayman, Crash Bandid, Tekken 3 and... Tekken 2. (When i played Tekken 2 for the first time, Tekken 3 already made his entrance) But okay, i will continue: So when i played it for the first time, i was kinda shocked. (I was a kid and i saw all kinda cool kicks/punches, hehe) My uncle gave (actually he trew it at me) me the controller and told me how to play. So, i did what he said (I used Kunimitsu), and enjoyed for the next 3 hours! It was amazing, it was something new for a kiddie like me. My mom was kinda mad, she said it contained violence and blahblahblah, but my uncle (how much i hate him... I'm thankfull, really thankfull for what he did) didn't listen and let me kept playing. Because of this experience i'm into gaming...

But 1 year after that... My annoying uncle lost ALL his PSone games. Yes, even Tekken 2/3. I was mad, really mad. (almost killed him...Nah, joke) So, he gave me his PSone, (without games!) and told me i had to buy my own. I only could buy Tekken 3, 'cause i couldn't find Tekken 2 anymore. Oeh, the pain. So in 2004, i find out there was a Tekken ARC in a dumb amusementpark (where you had to pay €9,- entrance). Since then, i went to that amusementpark every week to play Tekken 2. (I don't do it now anymore... Too busy saving up money for a PS3)

Oh wow, a little bit of biography... Couldn't hurt, right?

To be honest, NO, but i don't wanna bore you people with good old memories of me, so i will shut up now. :D

This game is revolutionary. Really. It had allot of influence on other videogames, and got me into gaming as well. And for a game, where i spend €19,- a week for, is DEFINITELY worth it. ---
