3.0 out of 5 stars Much better than people think. July 2, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The good:

Tackling and physics are incredible. The player interaction is more organic and the whole game just feels far more realistic than any of the animation driven games like Madden.

The logo creator and custom team creation. The logo editor is very similar to what's used for decals in Forza, and basically allows you to create any logo you can dream of (or you can copy the NFL).

The running game and playing defense - both very fun - but don't try switching players on Defense, just stick with one guy and play your assignment. Switching will disorient you pretty badly.

Passing game - the mechanics of the passing game and the idea behind it is the most realistic I've ever seen in a video game. You actually have to read the defense and know which receiver you want to throw to before the play - and you have a blind spot - you're forced to look at your receivers before you throw it to them. None of this scrambling to the left then jump/spin/fling the ball to the right crap that Madden has.

The bad:

The offensive AI for the CPU can be incredibly stupid sometimes. There is a patch in the works though so this may be fixed in the future.

The playbooks are far too limited when compared to other football games.

The passing game - while I love the mechanics - there is a bit of an issue with defenders seeming to have hands of glue. Both you and the CPU tend to throw just a few too many INTs.

Penalties seem to be a bit sporadic at best, and there are some odd rule interpretations. It isn't NFL football.

No injuries or player fatigue. Not a game killer, but definitely a bit disappointing.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally an alternative to the Madden football games we've all been forced to play since EA gained exclusivity of the NFL license.

If you were one of the few to pick up All-Pro 2K8 you'll know that, without the NFL logos, the game of American football seems to appear a bit different. While All-Pro 2K8 was a decent comeback for the team responsible for the finest football game to date (NFL2K5), 2K sports just couldn't compete with the Madden marketing juggernaught and, sadly, gamers never got to see an updated version of All-Pro.

Flash forward three years and out comes a new contender in "Backbreaker." Hopes were high, but expectations had to be set low, for this new football game coming from UK developer 505 Studios. You really need to see this game running in all of its glory to appreciate what 505 has done here. Like their marketing has boasted, "there are no canned routines and every tackle IS different." Linemen move realistically, players obey the rules of football and the animation engine never seems to quit giving of itself. Some hits are brutal, some are downright hilarious and some hits I've seen would kill a person if they happened on the field. Sure the crowd animations are limited and the characters look like sculpted-robot-men from the future but, at its core, Backbreaker is a very solid first outing and definitely has the components to build an even greater football experience their next time around.

As for now, at $49.99, you can't find a better reason to stop paying for Madden's inability to innovate every year and start playing football again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tons of fun...if you can tough it out! June 3, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game will immediately WOW you. The tutorials will leave you speechless at how awesome the game play is.

Then you hop into a regular game and you get worked...so it gets VERY frustrating. BUT....if you can train yourself to forget the years of "training" from playing the same dry football game we've been force-fed yearly...YOU.WILL.LOVE.BACKBREAKER. Even if you are getting destroyed, this game is fun.

Tackle Alley (a mini-game that has you running from one end of the field to the other avoiding would be tacklers) is arguably worth the money alone. Especially when you play it split screen with a friend.

This game is gorgeous, no other sports game comes close. The tacklers are amazing. If you can get past the steep learning curve (which is mostly just being able to over come your previous football game knowledge) and learn to play this game for what it's meant to be you will enjoy this.

The team creator will cause you to lose sleep as you stay up till the wee hours of the morning creating your own team!

Great game!! It way better then I expected. I've been glued to this game since I brought it home. The graphics and sound are amazing. This game is much better than Madden. This game is alot of fun once you get pass controller's layout. So Madden there a new contender to the throne.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Madden killer. September 4, 2010
By T. Vass
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is all about the physics. It uses the euphoria physics engine that was in GTA4 and RDR, because of this the tackles look very realistic. The problem with this is too much work went into the physics and not the "football" part of the game. Also because it was originally developed as a tech demo and not a game it feels sort of incomplete. Luckily the developers are putting a lot of work into this game post-release so it will get better with patches. The team editor is very robust and you can download other people's created teams and use them for yourself. Overall this game is better than Madden but i would only recommend it to hardcore football game fans.

Pros
-Fun
-Great physics
-Very realistic
-Awesome team editor
-Dev support in the form of patches

Cons
-No NFL teams
-Occasional bugs/glitches
-Not enough to do in the game

Fun game but on the easiest setting if you set your DEF. on FG everytime you will stop the off on every play!! Kind of a quirk in the game as that is NOT the DEF anyone would use. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Locks up
The game immediately required an update, and then locks up at the loading screen. Tried it without the update and it still locks up. Waste of money.
