Backbreaker

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Backbreaker is a football arcade/simulator from developer Natural Motion that showcases groundbreaking player animations due to new development software. I have been looking forward to this title for quite some time, and on some levels it did live up to expectations. However, there are too many design flaws and setbacks to keep Backbreaker from being a real contender.

Backbreaker Vengeance

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Backbreaker Vengeance is the sequel to the Backbreaker football simulator/arcade title from developer Natural Motion. While gamers will recognize the presentation and gameplay similarities from the original Backbreaker, little remains from the original.  Backbreaker Vengeance strips away almost all resemblance of a football game and slims down to little more than an obstacle course in football pads.

Backbreaker: Vengeance Review

gamingillustrated.com
3 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Backbreaker: Vengeance continues on the tradition (or lack there of) of football games in the gaming community that no longer features 11 on 11 play. Like every other game since the 2nd Bush administration, thanks to EA sports, we get several mini games that gives us a taste of gridiron action on a different scale.

Backbreaker Vengeance Review

13 July 2011
  • Excerpt: When Backbreaker was released last year, I thought it had potential. The Euphoria engine was great at rendering tackles and animations, making for a smooth playing football game.
  • Pros: + Great animations, + Supremacy mode with friends, + Lots of challenges
  • Cons: Modes offer little variety, Price is a bit steep, Some wonky collision issues

Backbreaker: Vengeance Review (XBLA)

Gamers Daily News
12 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a bizarre case of the games being good for what they are while the product itself is massively overpriced. If Backbreaker: Vengeance is ever reduced to about $2 to $4 USD, it might be worth a look. Otherwise, this offers terrible value for your money and should be avoided.

Backbreaker Vengeance

Thunderbolt Games
9 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Back in the mid ‘90s we’d sometimes get the chance to catch late night highlights of sports from across the Big Pond. American Football is a game that few people follow here in the UK. The constant breaks and drawing out of all proceedings general bores us – as a nation – to tears. These highlights thoughtfully skipped the intervals between the action, where fifty year old men with beer bellies would play a few rounds of noughts and crosses in front of the team while...

Backbreaker Vengeance

Operation Sports
4 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Rushing in, you boldly take the ball. Defenders are everywhere, but somehow your body and this ball have to get around the wet mulch pile, over the wooden bench, through the foursquare area and finally into the clear. You turn around, taunt the panting defenders by holding the ball just out of their grasp, and then you flex your muscles just like Hulk Hogan.

Backbreaker Vengeance

29 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Believe it: the near-daily courtroom drama of the NFL lockout is exponentially more entertaining than this, a limp XBLA spinoff of unlicensed footballer Backbreaker’s Tackle Alley mini-game. Yes, you heard right: Vengeance vomits up 20 varying stages of Tackle Alley’s juking, jumping, and tackle-breaking sprints to the end zone while meandering through various obstacle courses on the field. Looking for 11-on-11 contests? You won’t find them here.
  • Pros: +Tackles look realistic thanks to Euphoria animation technology..., + Tackles look realistic thanks to Euphoria animation technology..., + ...but none of it is showcased when you’re mostly trying to avoid contact.
  • Cons: - Gameplay is pretty much color-coded boredom., ? Is this just a lame cash-in on the iPhone version?
