4.0 out of 5 stars Great Start for Eidos' New Wrestling Franchise October 9, 2003
I got this game on the day it came out and I have to say that it is VERY fun. The environments are a little on the smaller side, but are very interactive. Just about any weapon, item or ledge can be used to pummel your opponent into knockout. There are many wrestlers to choose from including The Insane Clown Posse, although they are not selectable at the beginning and they are quite hard to unlock. Trust me, as my friends and I have already gone through the talk show mode (basicly a season mode) and it can get quite frustrating. Also featured are Twiztid, although we still havent unlocked Madrox, Mad Man Pondo, Sabu and Karnage and Masked Mike Jackson of BYW home video fame, plus a host of others. This game is not without it's draw backs however. The controls can get a little sketchy at times, especialy when trying to do the high flying leaps. Nothing is more frustrating than lining up an opponent on the ground then trying to climb up a ledge and having your character run back and forth or climbing up a ledge and falling off when you press the kick button. We have also had numorous instances of getting "stuck' behind the scenery, an obvious glitch that should have been fixed. But, all in all, this is a really fun game that is worth the purchase. The wrestling animation is great, especially the reversals, and the actual grappling interface is great. Plus, the sound track is killer. A whopping 41 tracks including 5 ICP songs, plus tracks from Twiztid, Sepultura, Biohazard, CKY, Anthrax, Neck and a ton more, all uncensored! So with just a few draw backs, this game is super cool and worthy of addition to any gamers library, especially wrestling/ICP fans. Also, any wrestling gamers that like blood in your wrestling games...

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better September 5, 2004
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Now I dont hate this game, but I dont like it either. The game consists of several players that you can choose in multiplayer mode or in the one player mode. The levels themselves are surprisingly small, and even though there are an abundance of weapons, once you use them, they disappear!

That is not how I would have liked to play it. If you hit someone over the head with a chair, would you have liked it to disappear? Some of the levels are also really dark and you either have to squint to see your opponent, or skip it entirely.

The music for the game is the only great thing about it. You have a huge list of bands that can play songs and listen to them while you play the game. The characters are good, yet some can get really annoying with all their taunts.

Another problem would have to be that the moves these guys use looks like they are part superhero or something. Now I dont know if any of you like the fact that these guys can jump 50 feet in the air and throw their opponents on mattresses of fire while they come down, but it just doesn't look real to me. Call me crazy but it just doesn't.

This is a great game to RENT, not to own. There are some laughs in here, and some moves do look cool, but unfortunately not everything is great, and some things should definately change:

For example, if you knock out your opponent and want to finish them off by laying them on a table and climbing to the roof of a house and jumping off right onto them, you have to do it as quickly as possible. I say that because the opponents wake up literally less than 10 seconds after you knock them out, making it seem less fun as it could have been.

4.0 out of 5 stars Backyard Wrestling: Don't buy this for your home December 21, 2003
When I first saw the ads for this game, I thought wow! That game is awesome, but it is far from awesome, very far...So anyway, When you put the game in your PS2 it starts this annoying hick music, ugh, then, there's the mode of plays, there are 3 out of the 5 things on that start up menu you can play, Talk show mode, is well, Crap! It's very cheesy and no where near real! and if you lose one match, you have to do all 3 or 4 of them over again, causing for a very frustrating game, more so then stuntman for PS2, You find yourself yelling at the screen at how it's to difficult to beat the levels, and the levels, there are about 6 to play, and all get very very boring after 2 plays, and the wrestlers, all very stupid looking, and the girls are in THE most skimpy outfist you will ever see, including thongs and G-strings for "pants" or "shorts" The videos you unlock are more fun to watch then to play the game! all in all this game is a rentel, but please don't waste $50 on this game, the game is rated M for a warn you not to play this game becuase of the severe stupid factor..Save your cash, go get Tony Hawks Underground, I recommend that game to the fullest

3.0 out of 5 stars slow motion October 21, 2003
By john
this game is fun and cool, but i had to give it 3 stars because of the time it takes to load. i can play 2 or 3 rounds of golf before the game loads up. the controls aren't that great also. the game could use a lot of improvement. the 'create a character' mode was horrible. you can't create a character, you have to pick one. overall, i found it fun to play, but considered suicide while waiting for the game to load.
