The netcode is known already from Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Soul Calibur V and excellent implementation that allows very good connections. Compounds from three bars (out of five) can already play relatively well. However, one should note that domestic connections as well as to the immediate neighbors of Germany produce the best results here.

Tekken Revolution Engine

The engine of Tekken Tag 2 appears to be taken at first sight. The Bound mechanics and mechanics day cease to exist. EX like this were installed versions of existing moves, which are faster and have seemingly invulnerability. They allow their properties very interesting counter options and combos that those original (with Bound feature) not much inferior to. More detailed information on the date (day 1) not possible and will be discussed in a possible additional item.

Criticism & Conclusion on release day

  • Practice Mode: The main point of criticism is coming up: There is no practice mode - at least not from the start. This is in view of the fact that you want to attract new players interested to play an extremely big mistake. Even if the practice mode should be unlockable by playing this means that the new players will have to struggle through the long Try and Earn without knowing what his character is. The whole thing is especially critical when considering Ranked and Player Mode into consideration. These make up 2/3 of the game content. The game displays only some of the new "EX Special Moves." The Arcade mode offers at least a chance to look into the Move list to look into. However, this is of little consolation.
  • Free to Play: The Free to Play system seems to be somewhat limited at first sight, which is not surprising large. The countdown for the condition of Arcade and Battle Coins are set very high, at 60 and 30 minutes. An experienced player lands on dry very quickly and have to wait or just resort to micro-transactions and buy coins. The choice of 8 characters is quite well done. However, it is questionable when the game allows that one can love his originally played Tekken unlock character.
  • Matchmaking and Online Fashion: The matchmaking works, as in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Soul Calibur V very well and provides a very good online experience. However, you should be aware that a good internet connection is a prerequisite of both partners. However, a permanent online connection is required for play (even arcade).
  • 2 player / Versus Mode: Not available.


Tekken revolution is a pretty interesting concept represents where it is further maintained and extended, so that the player on the ball. However, the announcement and the very speedy release date leave questions on the raison d'ĂȘtre arise. Compared to Tekken Tag Tournament Tekken Revolution performs very weak. It does not have Versus. In Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is also available free and already everything the game has been touted by the producers that it provides almost all the important content available for free from the beginning. In addition, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 moves currently priced at 20 euro mark. Anyone who has a serious interest in Tekken, should rather resort to Tekken Tag Tournament second
