Excerpt: About six months before the release of the original PlayStation, I was fortunate enough to attend a small CES (Consumer Electronics Show) near my home. After waiting in line for nearly an hour, I rushed inside in hopes of getting my hands on a demo unit for this crazy, unknown new game system put...
Excerpt: While I don't hold the original Tekken with as high a regard as Brad does, I do consider the second part of the series to be one of the finest videogames ever made period (its number 10 on my all-time favorites list).
Excerpt: As I was browsing a local video game store I spotted this game on one of the shelves. Picking it up I thought to myself \'Hey isn\'t this just the like game in the arcade?\' After seeing that it truly was a Tekken game, although a lesser know one, I proceeded to buying it.
Excerpt: Games on the PlayStation 2 are going to look better than games on the PlayStation. I'm sure it would be possible to make a bad looking game on the PlayStation 2, but you'd have to work hard at it. The PlayStation 2 also has immensely greater computational power than the original PSX.

Because of the different styles and body types, there is a much larger degree of differentiation between moves - for example a standard front kick in Karate looks nothing like a sweep kick or sabate kick in Muay-Thai...
Excerpt: Okay, I could prattle on about this game for a 1000 words, touching on the graphics, the sound, the gameplay (and I will - later), but why don't I save you all the trouble and answer the one question that you no doubt have: Should I buy this game? If you like Tekken, most certainly.
Excerpt: The newest member of the Tekken family debuts as one of the premier fighting games for the PS2. Tekken Tag Tournament's attention to visual detail and fun gameplay even outperforms its coin-op counterpart, making it a must-have title for fortunate PS2 owners.
Excerpt: Jeez... talk about a strange review to write! Tekken is FAR from being a new concept in gaming. Since I first saw a Tekken machine in the arcade, I've been almost magically drawn to any game with the Tekken moniker. Tekken, Tekken 2 ...3 ...and now Tekken TAG Tournament.
