After the completion of The King of Iron First Tournament 4, a fierce battle between father and son unfolded at Mishima Heihachi, his grandfather-but spares both Kazuya and Heihachi's lives in honor of his mother who loved peace. While many presume the death of Heihachi Mishima will end the reign of Mishima Zaibatsu, an announcement is made for the fifth king of Iron First Tournament, with an unknown replacement to Heihachi leading the organization. The fight begins.

The movesets of the characters somehow feel much fuller than in previous games, rather than each character having a certain number of decent moves which they just use over and over again. The story mode is the same as ever but the arcade mode is by far what extends the life of this game. In this mode, you can take your chosen character up the ranks from 10th kyu to tekken lord, with the opponents increasing in difficulty as you go on (obviously). This mode is very good at teaching new players how to fight with the various characters as you really need to develop your skills in order to progress. Especially if you're fighting an opponent of sage level or above, you need to be a very tricky fighter to win!
This game also places much more emphasis on juggles than previous installments which can be annoying as it means that if you get caught in midair, the computer will take half your life before you hit the ground! It also annoys your mates when you play them because you become a bit of a demon at juggling as well!
All in all, an excellent game which you will come back to again and again. I hope Tekken 6 is as good!
When people mention Tekken, they usually think of people who have mastered every single command and move, while spending hours upon hours practising to hone their 'mad skillz' - as it were. Making the game unplayable for beginners to the genre. This, I think, is far from the truth. Tekken 5 welcomes new and veterans to the series alike. Whereas button-bashing pretenders to Tekken's crown, coughDeadorAlivecough, leave you feeling somewhat cold. Tekken on the other hand leaves you feeling a great sense of satisfaction when you play. Yes, Tekken 5 has its button-bashing characters - but every single character IS unique... and how unique they look! Arguably the best looking PS2 game to date. With gorgeous backdrops, fluid, realistic animation and textures that would look at home on any next-gen console.
Music wise, it's back to form mix between techno/dance we've come to know and love from Tekken. The least we say about Tekken 4's music the better! You've got your usual Story mode to run through with each character. To see why they've entered the tournament, etc. But this 5th edition borrows the human AI mode of Virtua Fighter 4.Read more ›
Anway. When I was a child, my cousins fav game on the PSX was the original Tekken, adn I loved it. THen he got Tekken 2, and I was like "oh this is the best thing ever". Then, I got some tekkens of my own (3, Tag and 4) and my brother tried to make em play them, but I just thoguht they were terrible. Boring, repetitive and just...bland. PLus, FAR too slow. Anyway, Tekken 5 came out...and I was blown away. The graphics are awesome, the speed of the fighting is DOA-like and the controls are incredibly easy to master, unlike DOA where controls are down-right complicated, this game truly is pick-up-and-play.
Highly, Highly recommended
Game condition was flawless and delivery was very fast.
While alike all fighting games, Tekken 5's main strength is in playing against other human beings, its one-player options aren't bad, including time attack, story and and arcade mode with solid AI opponents who actually perform combos(not just attack strings) and counter moves effectively, but not unfairly. The game's customisation mode allows players to personalise their characters appearance, and gives people a sub-goal to aim for as they earn money to unlock costumes and items.
On top of this, the game allows people to play the first 3 Tekken games arcade editions. While Tekken 1 is rather limited, Tekken 2 & 3 are still great fun, the latter being considered one of the series greatest entries.
There is also an action platformer mode called Devil Within, but I have little positive to say about that, as it's really just a mediocre sub-game, that is best ignored, though it can be fun on occasion.
It also doesn't detract from the overall product, which I'd recommend to all fighting game fans.
