Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes The Neighborhood Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: In the end, the gamers are the winners here because Eidos took heed and paid attention to the slack they got last year after putting out a half assed product that actually had potential. This year’s Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes the Neighborhood does a much better job of giving wrestling fans a game that will test their gaming skills while giving them a few laughs at the over the top style of action.

  • Excerpt: Eidos and Paradox Development take another stab at a sequel to last year's "Back Yard Wrestling" grappler which received somewhat of a mixed bag of "welcome" from the gaming community. After an overall lukewarm reception they went back to the drawing board and re-tweaked the game based off the "likes" and "dislikes" of gamefans and wrestling enthusiasts round the globe.

  • Conclusion: There are some games that players are willing to forgive minor issues with, mainly because they have paid good money for it and don't like appearing like a sucker in front of their mates. You know what I'm talking about, the "Oh I actually like how the game crashes sometimes … it makes it more of a challenge" style rationalisation. There are no such redeeming arguments up your sleeve if you buy Backyard Wrestling 2. "There goes the neighbourhood" sums this up perfectly.
  • Pros: Some breathtakingly, stupidly violent videos included
  • Cons: *.*
