I hope it gives madden some competition.
Yeah me to, Somebody needs to start challenging the madden series so they stop treating there fains like shit. like disconnecting servers...
They need a NFL licence, w/o real teams/players its sad but this will get overlooked for Madden.
I'll be buying it, I use to love madden from 95-04, then haven't bought it since. I love the physics of BB and the realistic hits that come out of it. I'm getting bored of the same hit animations over and over. I feel madden has been lacking in this area since they still use the same mocap animation techniques as the madden's of the 90's used.
the Euphoria engine seems cool.
I can't wait for it to come out.
it really does. I was surprised at this. I hope it pulls through and maybe gives madden something to look at for some inspiration for change.
I'm always skeptical of new football games. But Euphoria is such a good engine that I would be surprised to see this fail. I like the thoughts that maybe this will give Madden something to really push their product forward too.
This game looks pretty cool, and even if it doesn't totally steal sales away from Madden (which it probably won't, realistically) at least it will bring competition back to football games.
The movements looks more natural than robots compared to other football games.
I don't even like football and this looks awesome.
And this it ! I don't care about the NFL name ! I just want a true next gen FB game that has a wow factor ! Not the same random madden year after fucking year ! Hey madden Euphoria says Hi , locomotion my ass ! Another BS protac gimick again , same engine , same bugs
only xbox 360? That's awful journalism for that website. But upon my search if it was indeed a PS3 title I found this little tidbit: "The demo for Backbreaker will be released on Playstation Network and Xbox Live on May 28th, 2010." News to me, may not be for all of you, but I never knew this.
So he said it's on Xbox 360 and didn't mention the PS3 version. He never said that it was ONLY xbox, just that it's on the xbox. So... he didn't make any mistakes, what's the deal?
I didn't notice it was Xbox only website. But that doesn't change the fact they should at least be forthcoming with responsible journalism. "Technology developer NaturalMotion will be releasing a unique football game named BackBreaker for the Xbox 360." Why not mention PS3 as well? What if your readers are multi-console owners? It's not a big deal, but it threw me off and I had to say "wait, what?"
Yeah, I guess they might as well mention that there is a PS3 version, so people know if it's an exclusive or not. But I don't think it's that big of a deal, to be saying it's shitty journalism just because they didn't mention an alternate version of the game. It's not like they were trying to trick people or mislead them.
It's nice to see a football game that might be good that doesn't have Madden in it's title.
the camera is gonna be key to this game.. it does look really sweet... I just hope its not like the superstar mode in madden, which has horrific camera angles
Arena Football. Canadian. Something. Without anything I might as well buy Tecmo Bowl Throwback instead and save some money
If that's your thing. Tecmo Bowl was awesome for it's time. However, having played it, I don't think that it aged very well in terms of mechanics. It is still fun. But, there is just something missing. That being said, I think that any other license would limit the game's appeal. How many people are paying attention to the AFL? Not many...especially considering that they lost so many teams in the reconstitution of the league. Canadian football is cool...but once again...only the Canadians and a few die hards would even know about these teams. With the NFL being locked down until after the 2013 season...this was probably the only smart move. Plus, EA still retains the license to the AFL from the horrible game they released a couple of years ago. Pro Evolution Soccer has not had much problem garnering success, despite the fact that it started with very little real world licensing, because it used to be the best game of soccer. Hopefully, Backbreaker can do the same and provide the best football experience possible. Maybe not on the first one...but with refinements...who knows!?!?
Theoretically, it would seem someone with a lot of skills using their livery could re-create every franchise in the NFL. IF custom logos designs can be shared, a gaming community could get people with awesome skills to make teams and post it. That would be really fuckin' cool.
www.operationsports.com has great community for breakbacker, and some user post custom layout for re-creating NFL teams
