  • Summary: The million-selling Backbreaker Football is back with a vengeance - and this time YOU tackle! Backbreaker 2 again raises the bar for graphics, physical animation and pure fun. You spoke, we listened: tackling, trucking, jumping – it’s all here! Take down the ball carrier in Vengeance Mode, or fight your way to the endzone in the classic Tackle Alley mode. Whatever you do - this is the best Backbreaker yet, so enjoy the ride!

    ALL-NEW VENGEANCE MODE
    The all-new Vengeance Mode turns the tables: now YOU tackle! Can you take down that ball carrier?

    NEW MOVES
    As well as the existing spin and juke moves, you can now jump and truck. It’s a whole new game!

    NEW, ENHANCED SHOWBOATING
    Really rub your opponents’ noses in it with new multi-touch super showboat! You’ll bag more points, but your player will slow down. What will you risk?

    NEW ON-FIELD OBSTACLES
    It’s not going to be easy to get into the endzone. Obstacles and obstructions, such as hurdles and truck gates, are there to make your life that little bit more... challenging.

    NEW TACKLE ALLEY WAVES
    Fans of the classic action of the original game won’t be disappointed. Get ready for 100 new waves spread across Tackle Alley and Vengeance mode… this time with a few extra twists!

    NEW STADIUMS
    Two all-new stadiums have been added, including – for the first time – the breathtaking day-time San Francisco stadium from Backbreaker on Xbox 360 & PlayStation3.

    STUNNING GRAPHICS UPDATES
    Backbreaker 2: Vengeance features console-quality lighting and full Retina display resolution. And just like the original Backbreaker Football, the action is powered by NaturalMotion’s Morpheme and Endorphin animation technologies – now even smoother and more physical!

    Fans of NautralMotion's Backbreaker Football won't be disappointed with Vengeance and its new modes, but much like the original, once the content is completed it's easy to put back down.

    Backbreaker 2 succeeds in providing a fun and viable alternative to traditional football games.

    Backbreaker 2: Vengeance is a well-presented arcade game. A lack of control options, and a clutter of onscreen buttons make it less appealing than the original.
