Summary: when i first saw dis game i thought it would be cool but this game sucks. graphics are terrible, fighting styles,very lame, and weapons dissapear after u strike ur apponent with it(if i hit an enemy with a bat,i sure as hell wouldn't want it to dissapear....
Summary: NO.....SERIOUSLY DON'Y TRY THIS AT HOME.....Somehow I got stuck reading almost all of these reviews... and I can't believe that their are actually people out there that say this game is great, or even good for that matter. I rented it last week, and returned it 3 days early! I'm sorry you guys... this may be thee most boring game I have ever played for the PS2 console. The game consists of the charactors constantly "running around"...
Summary: In one word i will say what this game is all about "stupid", the charactors act stupid the girls are stupid the video clips are stupid this game reeks of stupid! Its ultra hard and no wrestling is ever involved its just fight club with macho teenagers. The reason people buy WWE is we get what we want mostly which is wrestling, not some dope saying he is a viagara expirement gone wrong.
the backyard wrestling movies are better than the game

Summary: this game is not all that good. when you see it in the video store it does look good. But looks can be decieving. I rented the game and never beat one person. And also, backyard wrestling is just like mortal kombat or primal rage or something. The backyard wresling movies are better than the game. The reason why I put 1 star for this is not because it's gory or violent or anything, but because it's BOR-RING!!!
Summary: Ignoring WWE's advice to `Please don't try this at home', kids across the nation are all too keen to bust their friend's heads open with chairs and launch themselves off their neighbour's garages. This `Jackass' style trend, known as Backyard Wrestling, has spawned quite a following. After recent DVD successes, and the continued popularity of wrestling games, it's no surprise that `Backyard Wrestling' should find it's way onto video game consoles.
Summary: Never in my life have I ever wanted to play a game for so long, and then when I finally get to play it, I throw my controller against the wall in disgust. Not because I lost a match or anything like that, just because the game is that bad. I'm actually contemplating finding the people who made this game and punching them in the mouth. Horrible graphics, terrible controls and tiny fighting areas make this game horrible. And the characters are always running.
Summary: i hate this game... i know physics isnt a big basis in most games, but when the comp throws something at you it turns in mid-air to hit you... wtf??? when you fall down you squirm... who squirms?!?!! and best of all: there is no tutorial youre thrown into the game not even knowing the buttons, i didnt have a booklet with it when i rented it and i had to have my ass kicked about 400 times before i realized what the buttons did i would not order this game aven if it were...
Summary: I bought this because it was less than £1, it really isnt worth that. The fights are not fun, too diffcult (because of cheap AI, not skill level) and the humor is horrible. It seperates fights with "amusing" talkshow sections, which are the lowest possible american humor (bad hillybilly impressions ect.), the kind that makes me glad to be british and not associated with it. The actualy fighting, grapples are useless because of the fast place, so is more of a beat em up.
Summary: this game is something that looks attractive from the outset but the game play is shocking. th only good things are: 1)Settings can provoke different attacks from things like irish whips. 2)Finishing moves look quite spectacular and the graphics look good then. but for these are the only plus points.apart from that it is shocking as basically once you put a move in you win because it is almost impossible to reverse anything.
Summary: smackdown is a good wrestling game, backyard wrestling is not! wcw on the n64 is a good wrestling game, backyard wrestling is not! this game really should be good, you can pick up all manner of weapons to batter you opponents with, you can throw them off of roofs, you can light matresses on fire and chuck your oponents into them, but nothing feels good, nothing goes as planned, the controls are poor, the blocking and combat system is poor, the levels are pretty poor...
