Expert review by : John Truesdale (



Since the dawn of the video game era the approach to animation has been simple: make them before the game itself and press play when needed. A standard approach that has not let anyone down yet, but British-born NaturalMotion have decided to raise the...

Ow, My Back


NaturalMotion's first game shows promise, but Backbreaker still has a ways to go.

This works well for the most part as a kind of risk/reward setup, allowing you to, say, focus your passes on receivers while losing your awareness in the pocket. When in possession of the ball, you can sacrifice speed for more juke/spin actions, or you...

This may be hard to fathom for newer gamers, but there was a time when Madden wasn't the only NFL football game in town, in fact - there were multiple. From the arcade style NFL Blitz to the critically acclaimed ESPN NFL series, there was never a...

Or I know, how about a cheat to automatically return this game to store after you realize what a mistake it truly was!

Backbreaker Review


Great tech, bad game

Amazing technology; cool team creation tools

Horribly inept CPU play; no penalties to speak of; no editing tools

All of this hammers home the notion that you�re playing a really nice tech demo and not a complete football game�and the $10 discount price of $49.99 isn�t enough to warrant a purchase. Every football gamer should play Backbreaker just to see the...

Backbreaker Review


With Madden dominating the genre - due partly to EA's exclusive holding of the valuable NFL license - it can be difficult to find a decent pigskin experience these days. But NaturalMotion wanted to provide gamers with a different experience, one that...

It's just the lack of visibility and a pervading feeling of not knowing where the opposition is that brings this game down, along with that virtually useless offensive line. These affect every aspect of the experience, which is why it might really...

Backbreaker Review for the PS3


It's Maddening.

Customization options galore

Camera angle limits ability to pass; Scoring is more luck than skill; Cursing is the most fun I had with the game

Expert review by : Scott Alan Marriott (



Backbreaker is an arcade-style American football game played with fictitious teams. Choose from over 60 teams or create a custom squad by selecting a helmet logo and uniform colors. You can then compete in a full 11-on-11 game against the computer or a fr

Expert review by : Jay Acevedo (AnodaJay) (



While franchises like Tecmo Bowl, John Madden Football, John Montana Football (which actually got sacked after Madden became THE reference in the early 90's) started it all, other franchises like NFL 2K, NFL Blitz, NFL Gameday and NFL Fever tried...

Fun and intuitive control scheme ; Tackle Alley is a blast ; Robust team customization ; Player physics are nice ; Visuals are okay

but requires a lot more work ; Inconsistent Passing/Running system ; Controlling players isn't always precise ; Camera is sometimes too close in Aggressive Mode ; Audio ambiance is seriously lacking

I don’t know if Backbreaker will get a sequel, but I think that the idea of putting you in the action quicker by simplifying the game of football in order to showcase an incredible game from the technical point of view has its merits. Whether they...
