"There doesn’t seem to be much room in the EA Sports dominated sports genre. Aside from a few 2K titles, there aren’t many developers looking to overthrow EA’s dominance. Of all the franchises under the EA Sports banner, Madden is easily the most recognizable and longest running. NFL 2K and GameDay both fell years ago, and aside from a failed reboot of Midway’s Blitz series, no one has tried to challenge the juggernaut that is Madden. Last year, NaturalMotion released the promising looking Backbreaker football game for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Trailers showed a Euphoria-powered engine producing some of the most fluid animations ever seen in any sports title. Sadly, basing an entire game around an engine failed, and while the game had enjoyable moments, overall it felt very sloppy. Has NaturalMotion fixed their issues with the new downloadable Backbreaker Vengeance?"
