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.

Sounds like ModNationMadden. Might be fun but I suspect the price will play a large part in it's commercial success.

Ditto for me about the mentioned "ModNation Racers" comment ! The only cart based game I ever enjoyed playing was Mario Cart and I can't recall any other cart based racer being as good as MCR !

Now as for "Backbreaker" I'll give it a look see when the demo comes out but I like real football sims and not arcade style games but it'll be worth a change of pace from the grind of "Madden" !

The demo for ModNation was really good, and the customization sounds like it has plenty of depth. Plus endless tracks. I mean I am opting for RDR as my next purchase but a cart racer with the create and share mentality is a great idea.

If you loved Mario Kart, I'm sure you'll love ModNation Racers. Give it a try before you pass it, never know your mind might change.
