  • Conclusion: In short, you don't want to play Backyard Wrestling 2. This game is everything you hated about the last one, but it's been spray painted over with a few cheap gimmicks to try to gussy up what ultimately amounts to a pretty pitiful package.
  • Pros: More wrestlers and personalities you've actually heard of, Real life hardcore wrestling footage that's actually entertaining to watch, Decent soundtrack.
  • Cons: Somehow manages to make the concept of people beating one another with fluorescent light tubes completely and totally boring, Glitchy, unpleasant looking visuals, Glitchy, unpleasant playing gameplay, Glitchy, unpleasant sounding audio, Only two modes of play; neither are any good.

  • Pros: interaktive Areale, zahlreiche Waffen
  • Cons: schlechtes Kampfsystem, schwache Grafik, fehlerhafte Kollisionsabfrage, kein Online-Modus

  • Conclusion: Backyard Wrestling: There goes the Neighborhood unterscheidet sich nicht besonders von seinem Vorgänger und kann allein deshalb schon nicht beeindrucken. Anstatt auf technischer als auf spielerische Ebene mit der Konkurrenz mithalten zu können, wird zunehmend auf Gewalt und Action gesetzt.
