Tekken is BACK!!!!!!,
This review is from: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 PS3 (Video Game)
After the disappointing Tekken 6 and the meh style of Street Fighter X Tekken, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) sets the bar high for fighting games. Not only does it have a roster of over 50 characters (and counting thanks to FREE DLC), the gameplay and graphics are aesthetic at best(I believe it uses the same graphic engine as Tekken 6). TTT2 creater Katsuhiro Harada listened as fans took Twitter to ask for their favorite Tekken characters to be brought back. Guess who's back? Jun, Alex, Michelle Chang, Angel, and Prototype Jack from Tekken 2. Forest Law is back from Tekken 3 just to name a few of the characters. The stages are a little reminiscent of Dead or Alive as far as being multi-tiered. The tag throws are much of an improvement from the first TTT and the tag assaults are the cherry on top! Here are the some of the modes:
Arcade - similar run through of TTT2 in the arcades. Just like Tekken 6, these are offline ranked matches. You fight through opponents until you reach the boss battles - Jinpachi & Heihachi, True Ogre, Jun & Unknown. By defeating these characters, you unlock endings for your fighters. BTW, you can have 2 vs 2, 1 vs 1, or 1 vs 2 battles.*UPDATE* There is no story line to this game. It's pretty much a non-cannon dream match(kinda like King of Fighters '98 & 2002).
Ghost Battle - similar style to Tekken 6 with ranked matches (finally, you don't have to play online matches in order to get past 1st Dan!). You can also unlock customized items for your characters (i.e. the golden matches[hint hint]).
Vs Battle - not much to say about this mode...
Team Attack - the same style as all of the Tekken games
Time Attack - how fast can you defeat the game?
Survival - how long can you last?
Practice - to polish up on combos and tag attacks
Pair Play - you can form 2 vs 2 teams with a partner
Fight Lab - you play as Combot(from Tekken 4) to go through beginners' training and play some of the most strangest(but fun) battles. The more you progress, you more you can unlock items and gain more Gs(in-game money)
Customize - you can customize your characters to you liking(BTW, the game gives you 10 slots per character which gives you many options!). There are vast options to choose from & you can also customize rage colors & fight panels (the display for you characters during the vs screen)
Tekken Tunes - so get this: you can customize the stage music to you liking. I'm talking about your favorite songs: tracks from your CDs, mp3s, all of the good stuff. *UPDATE* I've finally added some of my favorite dance/pop songs and it makes the stages much better. It's definitely something worth experimenting with!
Ranked Match - pretty self-explanatory. Play through matches to raise you rank
To keep it nice & simple, this is a must have for all Tekken fans and hardcore fighting game fans (like myself). Also, if you pre-order through Amazon or GameStop, you'll receive DLC characters (Angel, Michelle, Ancient Ogre, and Kunimitsu - all four from GameStop and Michelle and Angel through Amazon), the Snoop Dogg stage, and the Big Bikini Bundle which has over 100 costumes. Get you copy and GET READY FOR THE NEXT BATTLE! What are you waiting for?!

Absolutely! With Pair Play, you can play with your friend (but I believe this is an offline feature) on the same team or play using up to four friends. I believe the only online options are ranked and player matches so I'm not really sure if you can play with your friend on the same team. I haven't tried the online features yet so this is as far as I know. Hope that helps :)
