We really enjoy fighting games and have played most that have been released. It can be easy to start comparing them to each other and to look for the best of all possible worlds in each game. Tekken 5 really does a great job compared to most of what is on the market today!
First, of course, the fighting. There are 20 characters to start with - plus a number of unlockable. The game does a GREAT job of offering you male and female, young and old, a variety of races. And unlike some other modern games, the females are actually clothed and earn your respect. You fully get the sense that each character has a background, a style, an attitude.
Every character has his or her own moves and combinations. You can master one character, and move on to learning the next character's talents. The more you learn about each character's style, the better you get in any of the combat situations. There are plenty of moves to keep you entertained for weeks, and each executes flawlessly on the screen.
Which brings us to the graphics. I really have to say that this is one of the best looking games I have seen on the PS2. Normally I give the XBox the edge on graphic quality - but there are some arenas that are just stunning. The dark chapel with orange stained glass stands out in my mind. Yes, the backgrounds are in action, the clouds move, birds fly by. You find that in just about any game in modern times. But the quality of the scenes are sometimes just amazing. Sure, there are some arenas that are a bit boring and look repetitive - there's one with dirt, dirt piles and dirt tornados which isn't graet.Read more ›
At first glance, I never really though the PS2 could fork out a game like this. Tekken 5 is not a sequel to Tekken 4, it's a whole new game and has enough to keep you busy for some time. 30+ classic fighters from the Tekken series including three new ones, Raven, Feng, and Asuka. The game includes a massive amount of game modes, story, Arcade, time trial, practice, and even a new platform game called "Devil Inside" which is a simplistic punch kick brawling fest, but still fun to boot, more on that later. Amazingly, this one disc also includes an arcade museum mode that includes fully playable games of Tekken, Tekken 2 and Tekken 3 taken directly from the arcade! That's right, FOUR Tekken games in one, actually 5 when you include "Devil Inside", an amazing package well worth your hard earned dough.
But Tekken 5 is why we're buying this game, and I have to say this is the most in depth fighter I personally have ever played. I was a Soul Calibur junkie for years, but times change and I'm ready for something new and fresh, and Namco does it again. The game still feels very realistic like past versions and definitely for hardcore gamers who love fighting games, but still also has that arcade feel to keep the casual gamers interested too. With only 4 buttons controlling the action, the game is easy to catch on but difficult to master. It's has a steeper learning curb that's for sure, button mashers will not be able to get far by just pressing random buttons as you really need to learn some moves with your gamepad too, as the game has an extremely high difficulty level even on normal. I found something odd.Read more ›
There are no extra elements thrown into the battles this time; no breakable walls, no cliffs to fall from and the position switch from Tekken 4 is gone as well. What Tekken 5 does offer, however, is some of the finest martial arts action you can find anywhere. Each character has been revamped with plenty of new moves and animations, and like Tekken 4 there are very few "clone" characters that simply have the similar or exact moves as another character. Jin Kazama again uses a traditional Karate move set instead of the Mishima style used by Kazuya and Heihachi, while the three new characters offer not only great new styles but excellent personalities as well. Raven, a mysterious special agent apparently involved in the 'death' of Heihachi, uses an absolutely fantastic Ninjitsu style that has easily made him one of my favourite Tekken fighters ever. Feng Wei, a new Chinese warrior chasing down scrolls stolen by the Michima Zaibatsu, uses a great Chinese Kenpo technique. Finally, Asuka Kazama uses her own Kazama style based on traditional martial arts taught to her by her father.Read more ›
