Summary: This game does have redeeming qualities, but you have to be very forgiving to spot them. I need not mention the stupidity of the Story Mode and the idiotic idea for an end boss as that has been covered in other reviews. The controls are sluggish and my fingers ache from the necessecity of bashing the buttons. As I have more than one controller and this is a requirement on all, I can only assuming its the game designers intention to make our fingers bleed.
Summary: After Tekken's prime being on the PSone, they have attempted as much as possible to cram in as many extra features as possible to make people by new installments. The only problem is this kind of backfires as most of the extras are useless. What's different to this game? Well firstly the fighting flows alot more and is definetely better than the other PS2 versions where characters were very, very slow.
Excerpt: "...long to get hold of tekken 5...and i finally did after some time...at start it was wicked...better graphics, more players, couple of new modes and whole new story line. tekken 5 is remarkable when comparing the gamplay and graphics with older versions. on the other hand, the game is disappointing because the fighting moves are mostly the same for all characters, the movie clips are very short. i dont see why tekken 5 is better then other ...
Summary: The important thing to note is this game is great to play! Its fantastic in fact. Great graphics, controls, moves, number of characters yadda yadda ya. My main beef is that thay have gone the lazy route of making a tough end boss - one that kills you in two hits. Lame, lame, lame. Better to have a potent technical / skilled fighter rather that is a challenge rather than "look I stunned you and now my fireball has finished you off". Frustration. Anyway...

Summary: i thought tekken 5 was dissapointing. yes the graphics are great and namco have outdone themselves but i find the easy setting is a little bit harder than i expected! is there any point picking up the controls? as soon as your down you might aswell stay there.
Excerpt: Por que por si no lo habeis notado, es muy dificil diferenciar los Tekkens desde el 2 hasta el 6 que ya esta en la calle. Si que es cierto que soy mas de los juegos de lucha tipo strret fighters, ya que, almenos en mis manos, hacen lo que les da la gana y la camara es un tanto mareante.
