Tekken Hybrid brings together a remake of Tekken Tag Tournament in HD, a prologue to Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and a full length animated film set in the Tekken universe.
The main attraction of this bundle is the HD remake of Tekken Tag Tournament. Tekken Tag Tournament gameplay makes some changes to the style of Tekken by allowing the user to choose two characters instead of one, with the ability to cycle between them during combat. This opens up many new ways to mash up your enemies and for those of us that are not experts at fighting games this serves us as a second health bar. The game features more than 20 playable characters, a small variety of special game modes such as Tekken Bowl (which literally is a bowling simulator in which you control Tekken characters) and the usual selection of modes like arcade, survival and time attack.
Tekken Blood Vengeance is the full length CGI animated film set in the Tekken universe which (for the lucky few of you that can) is also available in 3D. The film follows the story of Xiaoyu Ling who has to gain information about a mysterious student for the G Corporation. The film is a nice addition to the bundle as it helps to add a backstory as well as personality to some of the characters in the Tekken games. However, at times it feels like youíre just watching a very long cut scene. The film is dubbed in English (as you may have guessed) meaning that when people are speaking their facial animation does not match the words, which can be quite off-putting.
- Tekken Tag tournament is still as fun as ever.
- A chance to take a look at Tekken Tag 2.
- Bowling with Tekken characters is surprisingly fun.
- Tekken Tag Tournament shows its age.
- Tag Tournament 2 prologue is very limited and soon gets repetitive.
- Tekken Blood Vengeance can be confusing if you are not familiar with the characters.
