by Supermcawsomevill Awesome fighting on the 3DS
When I first heard of this I was like no way that Namco Bandai would do this. I check this out. The game play is the best just like the Tekken games on the Xbox 360. Plus you also get the a Tekken 3D movie too. This is a must buy for any 3DS owners

My only concern is that looking at this the graphics look very "blocky." I've been a Tekken fan since it's beginnings on the original Playstation and have yet to be disappointed in anything Tekken, except for the live action movie that came out recently. But, looking at these graphics in comparison to DoA and SFIV, I really think that they could have done better. Before I started getting bombarded with "basher" comments, I realize that these are 3D images on a 2D screen, and no I'm not expecting console or Vita graphics, but I've seen better on the system. Hopefully, it only means graphics suffered because of all of the content involved in the game. The character customization takes up a lot of memory space on a game chip, and if that's why the graphics seem lower quality, I'm totally OK with that. I can't wait for this game regardless, and hopefully it will hold be over until Tekken X Street Fighter (NOT Street Fighter X Tekken), or Tekken Tag Tournament 2!!! Guess we'll just have to wait and see when it releases.
Rated 7 out of 10 by KeybladeMaster16 Ehh its ok but not what it could've been...
When I got this game, I was excited to watch the movie and own with my favorite fighter Lars. When I started playing I noticed a few things... Gameplay: There is literally only 2 modes you can play on a regular basis. Survival and Arcade. Survival is fun, but the CPU is way to easy if you know your best fighter's move set well AND if you put it on the hardest difficulty. There is also a multiplayer mode, but without a buddy that has the game as well, its pointless Graphics: The characters are 3D pixilated, so they don't look their best but for the 3DS. they look great IMO. Sounds: All the music is accounted for and they even added a few new levels in there but, if you look, they are almost carbon copies of other existing maps in the game, only difference is music and design. Overall: I'm a hardcore Tekken fan and I like it, but I only reccomend it to hardcore Tekken fans, or someone looking for a (somewhat) cheap fighter on the go.
Rated 9 out of 10 by hakman An excellent fighter!!
The graphics are the best for any fighter I have played on the 3DS [including SF4 and DOA 4]. The control is spot on perfect. My biggest complaint is that the online matches lag.There is significant slowdown from the otherwise blazing 60fps playing offline. The audio is clear and crisp. There is a huge roster of fighters here = 40. That is more than any other 3DS fighter thus far. With all the fighters and 10 bout matches, I would say there is plenty of replay value here. If only the online matches didn't slow down so much this would be a total 10. I never had any lag with either SF4 or DOA 4 on my 3DS. Still a highly recommended game!!
Rated 6 out of 10 by jbl8199 You'd be better off with Tekken 6.
Like the title says You'd be better off getting Tekken 6 or something else. The lack of single player modes and customization in this game really doesn't make it worth it. Sure you get a cheesy movie that makes no sense whatsoever, but as far as the game goes it's mostly for those who want to play strictly online. There's virtually no single player except for a Practice mode and few quick battles and then it's done. There's not even any character endings. I didn't expect too much from a handheld, but there was so much more they could have done with this game. I just felt like it was a waste of money.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Electrifying65 Tekken 3D Prime Edition
Not a game that hooks the player at all times. Namco should've put more features in the game like other game modes. The game yes was very nice to see in a 3d element but didn't grab the gamer hard enough to make them come back for more. Big disappointment that there was no other modes than Versus, Practice, Quick Battle, and Special Survivor. The movie was excellent but still flaws with reaching the game to its maximum potential. If this was the case the game should be priced at least 20 dollars for its lack of game-play. Online play was very laggy so that didn't help my opinion for rating.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Jaybles Lacking, but satisfying.
I have mixed feelings about this game. The updated move lists and flow of the game feel and play great. The issues I find in it are the lack of modes, a single-player option, and the biggest of all--lack of online players. The game is worth picking up for $20 bucks, but when I purchased it for full retail, I was expecting an online sensation equal to Street Fighter IV 3D. I'm all for straight arcade fighters, but the lack of players online really hurts this game. I hope this will change since the price has dropped recently.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GCXBU Must Buy Game for Tekken fans!
I highly recommend all Tekken fans to get this game. Because it is very fun to play. The gameplay is simply awesome with the 2D and 3D graphics on it. Special Survival mode is very challenging, collecting Tekken Cards via StreetPass, Quick Match mode against the CPU is just like Tekken 6 on the PSP. However, Online Play seems to be laggy a lot. But I don't mind at all. Because I am still up for the challenge. Whether online is laggy or not. Anyways, I can't wait for another Tekken game to be on the Nintendo 3DS!
Rated 6 out of 10 by Brice2009 Tekken is much better on other consoles
I traded in my Dead or Alive game to get Tekken 3D. I regret doing that simply because this version is more of an arcade game, literally. At least Dead or Alive had a very interactive story mode with game play included. The movie was interesting, but didn't make sense at all. If you want to just fight continuously with nothing else, then this game is perfect for you. Other than that, RPG players stay away from this one.
Rated 0 out of 10 by BZant Tekken eh?
I loved tekken as a kid when growing up. Its always been great. But tekken 6 (even though the graphics were amazing) sucked. It had nothing but one move spammers. And the worse part about that, is that it actually got you. This really aggrivated me. But the game itself was nice. This game has some hope tied to it. It can be pretty great. But it can sadly turn out like tekken 6 too. Hopefully not the latter
