There are only a few really good fighting games around these days. Tekken is definitely one of them. Introducing the next generation version of the extremely successful Tekken series, Tekken Tag Tournament for the PlayStation 2.

In this version the graphics have gone through the roof thanks to the processing power of Sony’s new console. Now the backgrounds are rendered in full 3D and done in high-resolution. On some stages there are characters watching the battle, animated and detailed. It’s the little touches that add to the level of realism and Tekken Tag has plenty. The blades of grass, the facial expressions, the music, they all combine to create one impressive title.

The new tag team idea works well and adds a sweet twist to the strategy. If one of your characters takes damage, you can swap him out to rest and recover some energy. There are some attacks and team-up moves that can be done together. There is no delay between swapping out as all the fighters fit into the PS2’s RAM.

Tekken Tag has several secret characters and game modes to unlock. It’s only by completing the game with all the characters that everything is revealed. There is even a bowling sub-game, which is good fun in it's own right.

Tekken Tag has very balanced and refined gameplay. Each character has over 200 moves with multiple throws and combos. Tekken is a game of timing, memory and skill. The king of iron fist, enter the Tekken.
