Backbreaker Golden, Sequel Already In The Works
Arcade-style football fans have been waiting for something like Backbreaker, but is it "counting your chickens before they've hatched" to start working on a sequel?
The first title by Natural Motion isn't even out yet, but according Torsten Reil's Twitter page, the team has already started on Backbreaker 2. The first has gone gold and will be store shelves in just a few weeks time (June 1), but obviously, the developers aren't worried about its performance. You should check out our new preview; this is game that fans of the old Tecmo Bowl should really enjoy. Not only will it boast straightforward, simple arcade-style controls and tons of sweet animations, but it'll also provide the player with a boatload of customization and freedom. You can create your own player and even your own team from scratch; make up a logo and get going! This is the type of production that certainly won't appeal to Madden aficionados, but that's exactly the point: if you don't want to get involved with the true-to-life physics and all that depth and intricacy, and you still love big hits and long TDs, you gotta try Backbreaker.
And by the way, Tecmo Bowl Throwback should be on the PSN pretty damn soon; it's a great time to be an old-school pigskin fan.
