I played the demo for this game and was amazed. I haven't seen such a hard-hitting football games since well ever, Compared to the videos i've seen on madden 11, i was really dissapointed with the gameplay i was seeing, i thought that EA would maybe atleast get the defense right, atleast, but they ofcourse didn't. Let me Show you some examples, the two ton right foot, sucktion blocking, sucktion animation, repetive tackling, catching, and dissapointment, and to top it all off MORPHING, I've never seen any of those problems on Backbreaker and this was their first try, Madden has had about almost twenty tries and every year a faliure, maybe they change this not important or they added one more tackle animation who cares there needs to be good and not suction tackling in order to be a football game. Now Backbreaker fluent tackling system good and realistic running controls maybe the running itself is a little off but it's their first try, the graphics had to be limited beacuase EA couldn't share the NFL license because they were getting beat by the opposition, Good blocking i mean excellent blocking, Defence probobly the first game that got defense right since 2k5 and apf2k8, Backbreaker is a must rent and if you like it buy it too Backbreaker does have glitches but they're funny, and you can go to youtube and get the NFL teams too so there you go should be the game of the year in sports. So i'm giving it a 9
BackBreaker is a football game for people who are tired of Madden. I am sorta one of those people(although I still like Madden). BackBreaker is definitly different. You can make your own teams, and/or you can play as one of the game's teams. I like BackBreaker, but I still choose Madden.
