Backerbreaker, First of all this is not Madden, So if you are more of a madden player then stay away from this title. This game is more about the on field experience opposed to the simulation of the game. The hits are really nice, The catching animations are solid, The A.I is pretty good. Actually react to the plays opposed to being forced into certain actions. No suction cup tackles. The only downside to the game, Well a few downsides would be the hits. I know, I know, I said the hits were great, But sometimes the hits get a little extreme, where as a defender getting trucked may slide 30 yards across the field, However it is pretty funny at times. So still not a deal breaker. The other thing is the generic teams, however there is a fix for that. Simply google backbreaker NFL rosters for Ps3, click the OS forum. instructions there. those are the onyl two issues with the game. Pretty great football experience! 7/10!

The game had great promise from the idea. The controls were pretty sad, totally different from any football game I have ever played. The game probably would have been better if the camera view was not so screwy, it made it hard to really enjoy the game or even get any good hard hits to really punish somebody. I give it a 2 in hopes the developers will make another but change the controls and definitly the camera view, or at least give us a choice of views we would like to play with.
