      Im new so this is my first opinion. Tekken 2, lots of action and about a million combos to learn!! You start off with a few players. But, as the game gos on and you complete the arcade mode you get new pl... well you get new stuff. ____________________________ GRAPHICS The grphics..well they arn't that good very,very jagged. it usually doesn't look that good. _____________________________________________________ SOUND Brilliant, just brilliant. best bit of it Best bit of this fighting game

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      The predecessor to the awesome Tekken 3, this game deserves a great deal of praise. As a one on one beat-em-up, it isn't going to do much for those who hate the genre, but for fans, it betters all competition. The interactions between the characters are often bone crunching, the graphics compelling if not amazing, and the control system yet to be beaten. Where it excells, however, is in the sheer range of moves available for each character, and the sheer playability of most of those characters. Sadly incomplete unless played against a human opponent, Tekken 2 is n extremely accomplished fighter.

      This is platform one on one fighting game. There are many different characters, some of which you will not have to start with. To gain more characters, you must complete the game on “arcade mode” with the characters you start with. The game is very addictive and very playable. However, there are a few characters much better than others, which could be frustrating in a two player game. A good buy if that’s “up your street”, hours of fun.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Having played Tekken 3 before this, I found Tekken 2 really dissapointing. I automatically would've been as the technology had advanced between the titles, and so the sequel was naturally going to be a superior product in terms of graphics and sound etc., but the playability of Tekken 3 makes this feel like you're pitting wooden characters against eachother, and it's indeed not far from it with noticably polygonic characters, dry backgrounds, and even though there's some cool tunes and music, the whole game just seems like it's an early 90's OAP. I have to admit that some of the special moves are fun, and it is enjoyable inititating fights, though best against other human players, but that's as far as it goes. The whole appeal is deep rooted in the game alone, and it's only just about playable as it feels wooden. Tekken 3 is fluid, and apart from the gaming, it's a great product overall. If you have Tekken 3, don't bother with this, if you don't have any just get Tekken 3 if you're into beat 'em ups, it might be a justifiable upgrade for Tekken 2 owners though. Overall a not bad game, but the fact that there's a much much better sequel means that there's no prizes for which choice you should go for.

        Tekken 2 may well be looking a little haggard, but it's still a force to be reckoned with. Got Tekken 3 and desperate for more? Grap this top-selling predecessor and revel in the back story while fending off fists. This was one of the best games on the PlayStation when it first came on the market. Now, however, there are better games around with technological improvements in computer game qualities such as gameplay and graphics and the sequel to it, Tekken 3, is a lot better. However, the game has a lot of characters around to choose from and it is still worth trying it as it should be quite cheap on the market now!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Tekken 2, while being a decent game, has many good points, but even more bad ones. Combos are difficult with the playstation controllers, and the game gets boring after a while due to the lack of options and game modes.This is the main point where Tekken 2 lacks the most. The moves are extremely difficult with a controller like the playstation's. Also, the only game modes are one player mode, team battle mode, survival and practice, leaving gamers extremely bored after only a few days of playing it. The graphics on this game are good but not enough to make up for the below average gameplay. Does not affect the game very much at all

        Tekken 2 was one of the best games on the playstation when the playstation had just came out. As this game provided a new look to beat em up games. Tekken 2 now is just regarded as a has been, which was good, but now is poor. It is still good now for an fight if if you get bored of playing your other games! I would regard this now as an average game that is a collecters item for the playstation.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        ========== New Intro: ========== _Very_ Nice. Gives brief intros for each of the returning characters. Heihachi crawls out of the pit, Michelle returns to her house to find it trashed, etc. Each character is given a reason for returning to the tournament. It is for the most part very clean FMV, with a bit of the trademark JPG edge distortion only on distance shots. Close-ups are all really clear though. ========= Graphics: ========= Better? The individual characters looked cleaner to me, but the backgrounds have a 2D backdrop. I know that the arcade did to some degree also, but it does seem a little flat on my monitor. The graphics are quite clean overall, and the chracter selection screens have all been preserved from the arcade version, so the purists should be happy. ============= Sounds/Music: ============= Both original and reorchestrated music is available in the option menu, and both are excellent. The sounds however seem fewer (just me?). Some of the characters seem to be making the same set grunts over and over. ========== New Modes: ========== Time Attack, Team Battle, and Practice Mode. Time Attack is pretty self explanatory, Team Battle allows you to pit your choice of 5 characters against an opponent's, and then there is Practice Mode. Practice mode is GREAT. Similar to SFA, it allows you to pick a character to play and an opponent (who takes no damage). During the practice there is a meter determining number of hits in a combo, a damge meter, and along the bottom of the screen there is a display showing you which buttons/D-Pad directions you have pressed. Each mode also has a feature in the pause menu which shows ALL of the moves for the character that you have chosen. ======= Bosses: ======= The bosses are obtainable in the style of Tekken 1 (i.e. each character has a sub boss who becaomes enabled after you complete the game). I was able to get everyone
        with the exception of Roger/Alex, Kazuya, and Devil/Angel (for these I have no idea). =========== New Stuff?: =========== I didn't find any, but that doesn't mean that there isn't anything there. As with the other bosses (Kazuya, etc.) I will keep you guys posted. =) =========== Intro Game: =========== THERE ISN'T ONE! I was kind of disappointed. =( ============= Loading Time: ============= Nice and quick. 2 to 3 seconds tops.

        this is one of the best beat um ups on playstation and it certinately was when it came outand it still is even now they have releasted teken 3 and teken tag .the backgroungs are amasing and the fighters are very realistic.one thing that bugs me about this game is that it doesn't require much skill to pull off some of the most skill full moves.my 8 year old brouther has managed to master paul and can some times beat me!so don't get put off if you get beaten by a your little brouther or sister.other than that its a kick arse game which you'll spend hours playing.

        I got this game almost as soon as it went platinum and I have never looked back, it is one of the best fighting games I have played. The graphics are reasonable for any playstation game and the loading times are quite good. Even though I have the PAL version of the game I have also played the NSTC version, which is quite a bit faster and slightly better graphics but hey who is complaining. Hope you have a nice time. La la la la la la la la.

        This is a very good fighting game there is a wide range of charactors you can chose from so this means that the game will take a bit of time to complete and the sounds are quite good.The players have a big range of moves that you can preform while fighting another player. This game is good because you can play a two player game.I would buy this game if you are a fighting fan.Also there is tekken three which is a vary good game and there is better graphics.

        Bearing in mind you can now pick this game up for next to nothing, it represents serious value for money. The fighting is intense, quick and involved, basic special moves can be picked up quickly and easily allowing you the satisfaction of walloping the computer at lower difficulty levels....which is nice. Victory with each character reveals a well animated and often amusing/mystifying end movie. Anyway its worth getting purely for the pair of Bristols on that Michelle bird.....Buy it now - it wont cost much but will give you a kick

        Disadvantages

        The first Tekken took the PlayStation by storm and this one really keeps up the standards of the first. The graphics are a bit blocky but you won't be bothered about that once you start playing it. There are quite a few characters to choose from and a number of secret characters that you can get by completing the game. it doesn't require much skill to be able to do some of the best moves. In some ways this is a good thing and in others this is a bad thing. Its another one of those addictive games that you can't put down once you start playing it.
