Lets face it, Tekken Tag is probably one of the better franchises coming from Namco lately. I like the way when you get beat up, you can just ask your side kick to get in there and finish off the job you want to do. I missed this, as I don't have my PS2 connected as often as I'd like, so having a brand new HD version is brilliant, and the trophies make it more of a challenge.
So what do you get for your money? A film, which I have not watched as of yet. I'm not a big Manga fan anyway, I got this as a gift because I love Tekken Tag. You also get a demo of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which should be coming out soon. Of course you get the new Tekken Tag HD, which is superb.
TTHD is just like the one on the PS2, all the characters from Tekken 3 are here, so don't expect Alisa or any of the new ones from Tekken 6. My favourite is Forest Law, as I always felt his combos were the best. Heihatchi is still there, and both Ogres are there. One let down for me was all the characters being unlocked, I used to enjoy unlocking them all and it was challenging at times, especially characters like Alex and that Sumo wrestler, could never get a decent fight with him!
There are plenty of modes, the arcade which is just the usual way to play Tekken, VS mode which is 2 player fights; survival where you have to survive so many rounds without a refill of life; team battle where you chose fighters and once they get beat your next in line has to try and win and finally Tekken Bowl, which is a game where you play bowling.
The trophy set for this game is not bad, some are tough to get. Though saying that I have played for 2 or so days now and have already got 31% of the trophies. I do have many years experience of Tekken though, playing since Tekken 3 on the PSOne.
The demo of Tekken Tag 2 was a shame for me, as there are only 4 fighters, none of which are Law. You get Alysa, Kazuya, Devil Jin and Xydu. What makes me laugh though is there's a trophy set for this demo! No, it's not an easy way to get a platinum as there is none, the highest is gold. I found it dull, after a few fights I stopped playing and went back to TTHD as it's much more fun.
Altogether this is a great deal, but I'd probably wait to get this on sale, as it's not really worth the same price it was on the PS2 back in the day.
