Title: A Hardcore Experience with Backyard Wrestling Don't Try This at Home (PS2)


Backyard Wrestling Don't Try This at Home for the PlayStation 2 is a game that aims to capture the raw and intense nature of underground wrestling. Developed by Paradox Development and published by Eidos Interactive, this title promises an adrenaline-fueled experience for fans of the genre. In this review, we will delve into the various aspects of the game and provide an in-depth analysis of its gameplay, graphics, sound, and overall enjoyment.


The gameplay in Backyard Wrestling Don't Try This at Home is both exhilarating and challenging. Players can choose from a roster of unique characters, each with their own set of moves and abilities. The controls are intuitive, allowing for easy execution of basic attacks, grapples, and high-flying maneuvers. The game offers a variety of match types, including one-on-one, tag team, and hardcore matches, ensuring there is always something new to try.

One of the standout features of this game is the interactive environment. Players can utilize various objects found in the backyard, such as barbed wire, tables, and even fire, to inflict maximum damage on their opponents. The ability to interact with the surroundings adds an extra layer of strategy and excitement to the matches.


Visually, Backyard Wrestling Don't Try This at Home is a mixed bag. While the character models are detailed and well-designed, the overall graphics lack polish and can appear dated by today's standards. The environments, although fitting for the theme, lack variety and can become repetitive after extended play. However, the game compensates for its graphical shortcomings with its attention to detail in the animations and the satisfying impact of each move.


The sound design in Backyard Wrestling Don't Try This at Home is a standout aspect of the game. The heavy metal soundtrack perfectly complements the intense action, immersing players in the hardcore atmosphere. The sound effects, from bone-crunching slams to the crowd's reactions, are well-executed and add to the overall immersion. However, the repetitive commentary can become tiresome after a while, and the lack of variety in the voiceovers is a missed opportunity.


Backyard Wrestling Don't Try This at Home offers a unique and adrenaline-pumping experience for fans of extreme wrestling. The gameplay mechanics, interactive environment, and diverse match types provide hours of entertainment. However, the lackluster graphics and repetitive commentary can detract from the overall enjoyment. Despite these flaws, the game succeeds in delivering a hardcore experience that will satisfy fans of the genre.
