Excerpt: Tekken Hybrid is a bit of an oddity, being not only a High Definition (HD) update of the original Tekken Tag Tournament (TTT) but also including a demo of the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) and the movie Tekken: Blood Vengeance .
Excerpt: Ever since PS2 backwards compatibility was removed from the PS3, Sony and its partners have sought to ensure that new gamers can still enjoy the classics from generations past, either via PSN or through HD remasteries/collections.
Conclusion: Those who absolutely must have a slice of Tekken action this year will no doubt find something to enjoy in Tekken Hybrid. The game is a rather thin package that won’t appeal to anyone unaccustomed to the series, and indeed, this would be a terrible place for them to start.
Excerpt: Tekken Hybrid is a unique PS3-exclusive bundle selling for a budget price. For a little over R300 you get Tekken Tag Tournament HD, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue and the CG movie Tekken: Blood Vengeance.
Conclusion: Tekken Hybrid may be aimed squarely at fans of the series, but it still feels like one of those retailer bundle packages that makes you buy a whole bunch of extra stuff for the one thing you actually wanted.
Excerpt: I remember the first time I played a Tekken game. It was in an arcade during my teens and I remember thinking how good it looked. Yet it was a little bit different compared to some other fighting games in that time.
Excerpt: Everything started off suitably Japanese. We were in control of a giant demon man preparing to fight the fearsome school girl in front of us. The fact that we had horns, an exoskeleton and could shoot lasers made us very optimistic.
