Backyard Wrestling for the PS2.

Now...Legends of Wrestling I'm ok with. I think Def Jam Vendetta is pretty stupid, but it has it's audience. But do we REALLY need a Backyard wrestling game? With "realistic" injuries?

Hmmm...

(That said, I'll probably rent it.)

EDIT: It's an Xbox title too.

I will boldly go on record as saying that this is going to be the worst wrestling game ever created. There is about 8 million things I can think of as to why this game will suck HARD.

Well, if it finds it's way over to the Gamecube I'll buy it like that. I'm a sucker for train-wrecks and/or backyard wrestling.

Wasn't there all ready a thread about this a couple monthes back?

Anyway... yes... I agree that it's a terrible idea. It'll only convince people moreso that backyard wrestling is cool, when it really should be kept on a personal level.

You are awesome, vsp. That made me laugh and laugh! Especially imagining Rick Mason coming to the back yard to the Trogdor song with Strongbad as his manager.

I thought maybe the game might have a better subtitle like "Backyard Wrestling: Blown Spots Galore" or "Backyard Wrestling: You're Not A Winner Unless You Break A Bone".

Well, the game has one thing going for it. At least it wasn't made by AccLAME. This game will have to work pretty hard to be worse than those Playstation ECW games.

Well, I did some research and I found out this game has legends such as Josh Probation,The Masked Horndog,M-Dogg 20 and El Drunko.

As yes, you can jump off the roof of a house.

Three words: Grand Theft Auto

Is a backyard wrestling game really worse than that?

If the characters are based on real guys, then I could see having a problem with that. But if it's fictional, then I don't see the problem.

Well, my problem isn't that it's "wrong", it's that there's a 99% chance it'll play like El Shitooooooooooo.

That's still fun to say.

Considering Josh Prohibiton and M-Dogg 20 are both CZW workers, that should show you who this game's target audience is going to be.

I looked at the screenshots of this title on a couple of sites last night.

Uh, I don't know about you, but that ain't _my_ back yard -- it looks more like the Vercetti Mansion from Vice City. One screenshot even had a butler in the background.

If you're gonna do this, do it right -- put it in the suburbs, make the props flimsy as hell, and have Old Lady Berkowitz down the street scream her head off whenever a "hardcore" brawl spills onto her lawn. Have matches end now and then with a wrestler's mom showing up, grabbing her kid by the ear, throwing him in her car and driving off. ;)
