Backyard Wrestling: Don't Try This at Home

Playstation Illustrated
20 April 2005
  • 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: 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: In terms of popularity, wrestling is up there with baseball, football and basketball. Many of our society’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 don’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.

  • Summary: Backyard Wrestling Don't Try This At Home is simply not good enough to get attention against the vastly superior Smackdown games.

  • Excerpt: Es handelt sich hierbei wohl um den ungewöhnlichsten Wrestling Titel, der in letzter Zeit den Markt unsicher macht. Er vermischt Hinterhofschlägerrein mit üblichen Wrestlingmanövern.
  • Pros: - Original Wrestler, - Mal was anderes als Mainstream Wrestling
  • Cons: - total stumpf, - die meisten Modi nur im zweispielermodus spielbar

  • 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.

Backyard Wrestling - Don't try this at home - Review (PS2)

Konsolen-World
26 March 2004
  • Conclusion: Thematisch ist das Spiel bestimmt nicht jedermanns Sache. Es wird aber einige Spieler geben die dieses Ambiente mögen. Viel Blut und uneingeschränkte Gewalt sprechen immer wieder Leute an. Nett sind zumindest die Kampfareale die durch viele einsetzbare Gegenstände fast komplett interaktiv genutzt werden können. Schade nur das Backyard Wrestling - Don't try this at home so einige Macken hat. Zum einen sind die Aktionseigenschaften ein wenig mickrig.

  • Conclusion: Deze game voelt aan als een goedkoop tv programma. Je hoeft maar een enkele keer te spelen om door te hebben wat de game in zijn mars heeft. Dit is een titel om links te laten liggen. Af en toe kent de game momenten van plotse spanning, maar deze sluipt er even snel weer uit. Gelukkig zijn er massa's andere, betere vechtspellen.
  • Pros: Bruut geweld langs alle kanten. Keiharde soundtrack.
  • Cons: Create-a-wrestler mode is waardeloos. Ontwijken van geworpen items is bijna onmogelijk. AI-loze game ? Geen bekende personages. Lange laadtijden.
