Backyard Wrestling: Don\'t Try this at Home (PS2)
4 July 2013
Excerpt: I went into this game expecting it to be a bad game. The reviews were either lukewarm or bad, so this set my expectations low. Those expectations were shattered, I like this game more then I should like anything about wrestling in it, or has the members of grudge group Insane Clown Possie featured in it. Though mindless and flawed at times, it comes through as a fun rental or cheap buy.
Excerpt: Do you remember the movie Fight Club with Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, where these 'two' guys start getting together just to beat the snot out of each other, and soon more people join in? Well, Backyard Wrestling: Don't Try This at Home is a lot like that, except in the movie, there were rules. Here, pretty much anything goes. See a TV lying around? Throw it. A hay bale dangerously close to a gas pump? Light 'er up. Anything you can get your hands on is fair game.
Excerpt: In terms of popularity, wrestling is up there with baseball, football and basketball. Many of our societyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s youth grow up watching and possibly performing these outrageous moves. With the help of video games, wrestling fans can now play their favorite sport on their favorite system(s). Backyard Wrestling is an over-the-top version of the sport (if you can consider it one). I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know how much more you can get when watching WWE, but still.
Conclusion: When you're playing Backyard Wrestling, everything in the game feels extremely loose, repetitive, and sloppy. Moving your character around can be a bit of a task, as the analog stick's sensitivity level is pretty unforgiving. So, for the most part, all you'll be doing in the game is running around at full speed. This can be a bit unwieldy when trying to approach an opponent. Another problem is that matches never feel particularly engaging.
Excerpt: Bijatyki to bardzo popularny gatunek gier, królujący głównie na konsolach. Jest to również gatunek najbardziej rozpowszechniony i pozwalający graczom walczyć praktycznie na wszystkie istniejące sposoby. Możemy więc okładać pięściami podczas walki bokserskiej, czy też rzucać się na siebie w specjalnej klatce, gdzie właściwie nie obowiązują żadne zasadny. Mówiąc krótko, każdy znajdzie coś dla siebie.
