  1. I never thought hitting someone with a lead pipe could be so boring.
  2. It's hard to recommend a wrestling game that doesn't contain any actual in-the-ring wrestling. EA's Backstage Assault is a novel idea, but in the end, it doesn't have enough variation to make it worthwhile.
  3. 40
    Single-player fun runs out very quick due to severe lack of mode variety, and the multiplayer fun never even starts.
  4. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a video game less than this one.

    I don't know what the problem is with this game... Best game ever, second only to the great Jonny Moseley's Mad Trix! All hail king Jonny!

    This is by far the best experience i have ever had on any console. Backstage assault is a 10 in every way.
