Reviewed: Backyard Wrestling 2
Producer: Eidos
Required System: Xbox or PS2
Overall Rating:
Author: Michael Ahlf
Date: December 23rd, 2004


The original Backyard Wrestling was simply horrid - bad controls, bad game design. Nothing of a wrestling title to be had, it was more of a fake beat-em-up fighting game with "wrestling" in the title.

I was hoping that Backyard Wrestling 2 would change this. The previews and updates I'd seen indicated a much-improved game, better graphics, more characters, better character creation, and a retooled gameplay system with actual wrestling moves.

What did I get? The same old game, more or less. The game has improved slightly, meaning that they "improved" from barely a 2-star game to barely 3 (and I'm being generous there in case someone actually LIKES fighting games that masquerade as wrestling titles).
