A launch title for the Playstation 2, Tekken Tag Tournament proved that the new console was worth the hype. With the largest roster to date, spanning all three previous Tekken installments, Tag increased the frenzied gameplay while sacrificing none of its sophistication. This stage theme was perfect fighting music – upbeat and urbane, with just the slightest hint of Asian vibe. It was cute without being corny – sort of like Ling Xiaoyu – and that's a hard combo for any game to pull off.
