Ahem... *clears throat*
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is simply not playable. The game is literally impossible to be played. This is mainly because of three reasons:
1) Doing absolutely anything other than getting hit is impossible. There's no way of doing anything.
2) You can't win online. The possibility of ever winning any match online is even lower than zero percent.
3) You can't get better at the game. If a miracle happens and you actually happen to pass the line of being hit only 99,99999999999999999999999999% of the time, you can never pass this point you have achieved through literally thousands of spent hours. You can only get worse.
Every command in the game, practically even navigating the menus, literally requires superhuman speed, impossible hand-eye-coordination and diamond-hard skin on one's thumb tips. Not to mention that on many occasion the game, with absolutely no other reason than it wanting to be a complete fucktard when it comes to deciphering which buttons are pressed, decides to either intentionally misinterpret which D-buttons are pressed (for example, pressing just Forward may cause the effect of either Forward or Forward-Up because, you know, 1 button = 2 buttons) or decide to intentionally completely disregard the fact that the player has pressed anything at all (pressing any button during the delay time of 5 hours between every last move in the game). Every attack also requires extremely difficult finger maneuvers on the D-pad to produce such sequences as quadra-tapping a button with the maximum time between each button press being half a microsecond.
The reason not losing in online matches is utterly impossible is mainly because of the players. Every possible player in the entire game is either with the rank of Tekken God or True Tekken God (or at least should be if they played Ranked Matches) or a person who uses an extremely cheap character (I'm looking at you Eddy, Christie, Tiger and the Laws) to spam extremely cheap moves 24/7. There are absolutely no fair-playing newbies there because they simply quit after practically just turning the game on, scared of the impossibility of the game.
If you have miraculously passed the level of being hit merely 99,99999999999999999999999999% of the time anymore, you won't get any better. In fact, you'll only get worse. When you previously could do nothing, you can later do less than nothing. When you were previously hit 100% the time, later you will be hit 800% of the time. When you think you're now just completely shit at the game, which is better than you were before, the difficulty spike rises over 9000 levels and you get demoted to a rank that's lower than even that of a used condom. Your hands will then just cramp instead of pushing any buttons and your reaction time will become as fast as that of a sloth. Once you have reached that level, you will never get back anymore.
All in all, the game is pure torture and an exercise in masochism. Playing it, because of constantly making me lose, is seriously starting make me want to cry out of frustration.
...and yet I play this game every day. I think I need therapy @___ò
