Tekken 3D Prime Edition is a good if unspectacular Tekken transition. Its 41 characters and 60fps frame rate is unmatched on 3DS, and while it arguably lacks a truly meaty challenge for a single player it's enjoyable enough that you won't really mind. It won't set the world alight, but it's another strong addition to 3DS's array of big name scrappers.

But while the 3DS adaptations of Super Street Fighter IV and Dead or Alive feel robust, the same can't be said for Tekken 3D. No, Tekken 3D's offerings come off feeling nobust. And if you try to play against someone online, slowbust. If 3DS owners are lucky, Namco Bandai won't wait another ten years to release another Tekken for Nintendo portables, and hopefully it will build on Tekken 3D's strong foundation to create a complete Tekken experience.

Tekken 3D Prime Edition is an inconsistent package. On the one hand, it sets technical milestones for future fighting games on the 3DS to meet. Apart from these achievements, the game leaves a lot to be desired. If you love Tekken and don't mind the inherent control limitations of the 3DS, the portable multiplayer experience may be reason enough to justify your purchase. If you're looking for a portable fighting game that mimics the content found in console titles, however, you should look elsewhere.
