Summary: Recently I got the chance to pick up the Tekken5 collectors edition that came with the stick and all that. It was a really nice package and the only reason I purchased it was because of the stick. I never really liked Tekken all that much. My first Tekken game was Tekken 3 that I purchased when it first came out and was all the hype. It was so long ago I forgot most of the characters except a few ones that I recognized for their fighting styles.
Summary: Well, I played this game a whole lot back in 2006, but thats when I was a kid who loved these kinds of fighting game. Now when I play it, (its weird because I was better then than now)is this game is pretty slow paced in terms of fighting. You can only do high, leveled and low attacks, which doesn't really give it a variety to it, but what can you do, this game is 5 years old after all. But, I bought it just to bring back the nostalgia.
Summary: I think this game is good as a 3D fighter, but I also think it's a little overrated. 3D fighters tend to get higher ratings than it's 2D counterparts in gaming magazines because they score higher on the graphics review just because it's 3D. Compare Tekken 5's gameplay to Marvel vs capcom 2, Guilty Gear X2, and Capcom vs SNK 2 and it doesn't even match up to the likes of those time-less ps2 classics which are also all 2D fighters.
This game is a great fighting game. Modesty issues!!!

Summary: This game is a great fighting game. I have serious problems with the dress of at least 2 of the female characters. Someone mentioned that you can earn points to dress them properly. It takes a lot of points just to buy gloves and hats, so don't think this will change unless you play this game every night to earn the points. I know for a fact that they have different outfits, but the standard ones for some are very exposing of certain female body parts.
Summary: I was never a serious Tekken fan but I did look forward to 5 figuring I would finally get into the game. The game, frankly, is too hard. Unless you know all the combos and moves of most of the characters you will frequently flounder about. I have been playing this for several months now and still can't get the hang of it, so I usually end up button mashing.
