Though I’m generally quick to throw Tekken under the bus, I feel like that disdain primarily stems from a lack of understanding. I actively avoided the series during its heyday, and my few encounters with it haven’t been overly positive. I bought Tekken 6 a few years ago, but quickly got rid of it when it became apparent that it wasn’t going to work out.
At one point, I thought I just had it in for 3D fighters in general, but then I fell in love with Dead or Alive 5. Maybe Tekken is the problem after all? After finding Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the cheap, I gave the series another shot.
