"Tekken Tag Tournament 2 takes what was laid out by its predecessors and improves upon it by offering not only one of the favorite modes that gamers have missed, but by doing it so well. While nothing too new outside of the Fight Lab has been added, Tekken Tag 2 feels like the culmination of everything the Tekken series has been, minus a story and fleshed out online options of course. Ultimately this does feel like a bit of a loss however, as while there are a number of enjoyable single player options, online mode is pretty much the only option for you to find extended play. As it stands, with the entire Tekken roster to choose from and customize, tight combat mechanics and a smooth online mode Tekken Tag Tournament 2 provides a rather satisfactory experience, though one lacking in offline options."
