There does appear to be a slight difference in the timing of some controls compared to other versions, but they're not an issue once you've played the game for a while.
The 3D movie that comes with the game is a bit of a throwaway.

If you're a Tekken fan like me, you've already heard a few things: This game runs at a full 60fps in 3D, and it comes with a movie, Tekken Blood Vengeance 3D. I chose this version over Tekken Hybrid for the PS3, which also comes with the movie.
All of the gameplay that you've come to expect from Tekken is here. You've got 40 some characters with all of the moves of Tekken 6. New are the touch screen controls. You can assign move sequences to the touch screen individually for each of the characters. It makes for easy execution of moves or serves as a learning tool for experimenting with combos.
Gone are the story modes of past games. Gone is also the costume customizaton besides changing the colors of costumes (as far as I know). So you only have a few modes left. They feel sparse. It's the usual sequence of battles but without even a final boss fight like Jinpachi or Azazel. Then the credits roll.
This game really does appear to run at 60fps in 3D mode! I also own Dead or Alive Dimensions, which drops to 30fps in 3D, but Tekken remains at full fluidity in 3D. The only time I've noticed the framerate drop is during Lili's victory scene where the camera gets really close to her and she says "Sebastian, they say they're leaving already". The game looks great in 3D, especially in well lit areas. You'll notice a lot of the old backgrounds along with a few new ones.
I have not played the game online or on local VS, but I did go online to see another person host a fight room. I usually play offline anyways. You can unlock and collect some 700 3D picture cards as well. You can have the game trade cards with other players automatically, but I have not tried it out for myself.
So the story modes are gone, but you have to consider that this game cartrige includes a full 3D movie! I'm very happy with the movie. Even as a fan I did not see this movie in select theaters in 3D. I didn't feel like getting Tekken Hybrid for the movie either. But the thought of having all of this on the 3DS sold me. The visuals and the action are great. The story involves less than a dozen of the characters in the usual fight for control over the Devil Gene, with a few twists. Fun stuff.
So this sums it up:
- Fewer play modes, less customization.
- Full 60fps in 3D.
- Online play, local VS, 700 tradable 3D picture cards.
- Full 3D movie.
As a fan I am happy with my purchase. It'll hold me over until Tekken Tag Tournament 2. I got the only copy from a local game store on February 14th. Wait, is it Valentine's Day?! What's that?! I say it's Tekken 3D Prime Edition Day!
The fighting engine is great, nice FPS and all but the lack of any tangible rewards or customizations make this a complete disappointment as a "full" Tekken game.
To sum it up, it deserves a title:
"Tekken 3D, Halved Edition w/ a Movie!!"
Sure, it might not be the Tekken with the most modes, the most customization, and the most variety, but it is best Tekken I have played in years when it comes to entertainment. The quick battle took me by surprise since I didn't think it would be that great, seemed like a half-assed attempt at the ghost battle mode, but it works, it simply works.
Sure you don't have the ability to chose your next opponent after you win, but that is because this is supposed to replace the arcade mode, it is simply a vastly improved arcade mode, one which fixes every complaint I have ever had when it comes to traditional arcade modes. Gone is the unnecessary unbeatable boss as well as the terrible AI. Instead, you fight 10 rounds (which can be as long and as challenging as you want them to be) against "ghost" AI characters, who are presented as standard versions of their characters. Every character is ranked, and how difficult they are to fight varies on both the difficulty setting as well as how much higher or lower their rank is in comparison to yours, which are concepts straight out of ghost battle mode. So as you can see, quick battle simply takes the best aspects of both arcade mode as well as ghost battle mode and combines them into one mode that simply works on a handheld.
The reason why all of this works is because the game simply feels like it is a far more pure Tekken experience than Tekken 6 as well as Tekken 5 DR. The customization is limited to color changes (which are unlocked at each ranking once you surpass the 4'th dan ranking), which only applies to your character as well as online players. This means that while you are playing quick battle, you play against the fantastic ghost AI, and rank up your character, all while fighting against characters that look the way they should.
The zaniness of customization in some of the recent Namco fighters has been somewhat of a turnoff for me. I mean just take Soul Caliber for example, you hardly ever see any characters that even vaguely resemble the characters they're supposed to be, which takes away from the feel and purity of the game. It is just nice to see a modern Namco fighter that sticks to it's roots when it comes to character design instead of embracing the customization mania that has turned some of their recent fighters into something that more closely resembles a circus than the game it is supposed to be.
Plus, to top it all off, the 3D effect looks fantastic and it truly ads a whole new dimension to the game. In 3D, you get a feel like there is a battle happening right in front of your eyes, it is a sensation that very few games have been able to capture, so considering the fact that it is this well done in a Tekken game speaks volumes about the way it looks. I have already spend a lot more time playing this game than I thought I would, and it has already become my most frequently played 3DS game.
What they got appears to be a watered-down port of Tekken 6 (Which would explain the faster loading times). How watered-down is it? For starters, it has a lengthy survival mode, local and online multiplayer, a standard arcade mode, a practice mode, player stats, and you fight for rank and points that go toward special virtual trading cards. Tekken Advance couldn't come close to matching the 60fps that this game has, but at least it included Tag Battle, VS Tag Battle, and Time Attack. All the characters are included and all their moves are spot-on. But you only get to customize the color of their costumes.
But hey, the developers needed the room to squeeze in the computer animated Tekken movie Blood Vengeance--in 3D! Cuz there's no way you can just rip it onto your SD card, or stream it through your 3DS via Netflix or Hulu, or even view it online with the Nintendo Zone net browser. Oh, and you barely notice the 3D unless the subjects are really close.
So in closing, I can say with a straight face that Harada-san may have won the battle against Ono-san, but has lost the handheld war.
