The graphics are amazing, they make me feel like I actually slipped and fell with all of the other guys even though that was the problem I slipped and fell. And the cause of that was the controls my fingers sometimes get a little flickety on the analog sticks and it's making me constantly fall. But any other thing about this game like tackle alley the advanced team customization the feel that I'm actually running with the ball which is pretty awesome as long as you don't get hit. And playing tackle alley with somebody is just the bomb especially online which might be your friends. The best part I think is just playing on the football field but I hate how in arcade mode when it just gives you the 4 plays that have stupid names like run left or run right or throw. So for all you people that actually know the plays do the pro mode it'll be much easier on you.
Breath Of Fresh Air
Backbreaker is awesome, it plays totally different from madden which i love because backbreaker is exactly the breath of fresh air this stagnant football genre needs. Its a real next gen game while EA's madden series remains in the stone age, the camera angle puts you right in the middle of the action making your read more quickly in the pocket while avoiding the pass rush just like in real football. Some gamers might not like this game because they don't want to learn something new and different, but if you give the game a chance and really dive into it and get used to the controls you just might come away addicted to the game. Backbreaker has changed the game of football and taken it to the next level, only question is can EA keep up....
WOW THIS IS AWSOME
ok the first thing im going to say is THIS IS NOT MADDEN, IF YOU LOVE MADDEN PLEASE RENT BEFORE YOU BUY, ok this game is awsome i love it, its as in depth as madden with franchising and buying players and getting free agents all of that you can do, the custom team is so in depth its amazing the controls are simple it takes a little to get used to but still fun the whole point of this game is not to take on madden at all its just a hard hitting fun football game its like all pro football and the blits put together but its not to arcady it just feels right for a game, the graphics are awsome, the thing with madden is all of the players look like robots and its all pre rendered animations meaning some guy is in a green room and does all of the animations which at times looks good but its not, this game is all AI and the game engine is the same as in GTA 4 and Red Dead , if dont know what i mean just look at somevideos online and it will show you, this game is awsome and i highly recommend because i dont like madden at all but this game is very fun
way better than madden or any other football game. it puts u in the action and has way better hits than madden and everything. team customizing is beast it lets u do everything even the endzone art. my overall impression is i cant wait till the ea sports contract is up with the nfl so these guys can make a nfl game.
The real thing.
If you like actual REAL football give this game a try. If your scared to buy it rent it . I had maybe one or two games where I actually had an easy time. Most the time the games play like a real life football game. Back and forth with not much scoring. Sometimes back and forth high scoring. It kept it from getting boring . Most people say this game "sucks" because its actually more challenging then madden.
this game is fun but has werid camera angles and some times you dont see the other player but the tackes and physcis and movement are like madden but x 10 it a football game.
a New GAME
This game is a new game .Unlike any football games to come before it. Now if your a big fan of madden you will not like this game ,But if you are like so many of us who have been disappointed in madden again and again. You will likely love this game. Now first the Graphics looks is amazing no other way to put it . But sometimes you will be hating the Camera Angles in this game. Now When it comes to the controls wow.... This is why I if you love madden you will hate this game. The controls are set up for this very fast game play. So most action is done with the right analog stick whether running or passing the ball.But after a little while after getting use to the controls. This game will play like no other. Options In the option of this game are few but they can change how well you like the game. So play with option a little. For example with one change you now have the ablilty to chose from all plays in the play book not just what the coach gives you. Now the most important one of all GAME PLAY This game plays like no other .Big hits no graphic and ball glitches like madden or other things like ghost players that I have seen yet .This game is just down right realist .That it ,it is realist . But on the down side running the ball is hard to do and passing can be as well. Now I cant tell you much about the running because I'm a passing freak.At time passing can be very hard to do.whether it be getting sack or just missing the receiver. You will also see many catches that will make you watch the reply again and again because your QB fit the ball in suck a tight spot and completed it with out the ball passing through a other player. And my favorite is interception will happen a lot in this game both offense and defense but I have not seen yet where the ball went through the reviver and got pick by a defender
Not a Madden Killer!!
I was excited to see that Madden had some competition untill I played Backbreaker. This game is one of the most poorly done Video Sports games I have played in years. The good things about the game is first The Team creator is pretty deep as far as creating the uniform and colors. The player editor is pretty generic as it a player editor not a creator. Gameplay is very choppy trying to throw the ball is almost impossible and then controlling the proper reciever is impossible. The sound track well there isnt one, I heard one song every kick off and every instant replay so be prepared for boredom. There is no comentators as for as play by play goes you will hear a guy say something over the stadium speakers about the current down , The AI is absoulutley ridiculous when it comes to proper knowledge of football, I guess maybe they should of possible employed someone famillar with American football when creating a game about it. While I played this game all I could think of was that I wanted to go back a play Madden like one would take a shower after playing in garbage. I truly am Thankfull that we have Madden and you will also once you take a look at Backbreaker . Please dont waste your money.
10x better than madden they actually listen to the customers with physics
Most Realistic Football Game Yet
Yea, no official rosters, but that doesn't rule Backbreaker out. Realistic hits, camera angles, and stadiums dominate this game. There are many positives on this game, but controls is not one of them. Of course Madden fans would not appreciate the controls, but you learn to get over that. The physics in this game are so great. The back of the game says "No two tackles look the same" . 100% truth. You can create your own team and players to play with to bring your team through the ranks. There is an eight team league, a sixteen team league, and the official thirty two team league. Its a fun challenge to get up to the thirty two team league, which has the Backbreaker Bowl. -AntiMadden
