Tekken 5 for PS2 is another installment in one of the most popular series of fighting games ever created. It is not the fifth edition of King of Iron Fist Tournament as the title may be suggesting, for it is the seventh, when Tekken Advance (GBA), three installments released for the PlayStation console, Tekken 4 and two Tekken Tag Tournament games created for PlayStation 2 are all taken into account. Similar to the previous installments, Tekken 5 was developed by Bandai Namco.

Mechanics

In Tekken 5 for PS2, a set of well-known fighters make their presence, including Marduk, Lee, Jin, Kazuya, Lei, Paul, Law, Julia, Christie, Jack-5, Nina, Hwoarang, King, Steve, Bryan, Xiaoyu and Yoshimitsu. The game features three new characters as well - Asuka, Raven and Feng. The combat system remains unchanged here, following the excellent pattern of the stronger and the weaker extremities combined with perfect key bindings. Fully three-dimensional arenas make a great impression these also follow the trend of implementing interactive objects which can be used in combat, such as walls, columns or statues.

Game modes

Tekken 5 for PS2 offers alternative game modes, such as versus, training or the adventure mode present already in the third installment of the Tekken series. The player's task here is to fight their way through hundreds of incoming opponents.
