Best Fighting Game 2012

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 - Best Fighting Game 2012


Platform(s): PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U

Publisher: Namco Bandai

Developer: Namco Bandai

This year's spread of fighting titles all seemed like crazy ideas: PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale was all about Sony trying to make Super Smash Bros.; Persona 4 Arena makes a 2D Blazblue fighter out of all of the RPG characters from Persona 4 (and some from Persona 3); Street Fighter X Tekken transforms 3D characters into 2D characters, which shouldn't have worked but it did anyway; and Skullgirls only had eight female characters but it still was a competent tag-team fighter. Still, only one nominee has made any real headway in the hardcore fighting community and that's Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

It's already been in arcades long enough that there's already a thriving community of fighting players who know how to juggle ridiculous combos between two characters. Somehow despite its gigantic roster of old and new favorites, the developers were able to create a balanced fighter that harkens back to the sheer fun of the first Tekken Tag Tournament. All we need now is for Namco Bandai to make three more Tekkens so that we can get Tekken Tag Tournament 3.
