Backyard Wrestling 2: There Goes the Neighborhood is the second installment in the Backyard Wrestling series and was released on Xbox and PlayStation 2. The licensed soundtrack includes music by Andrew W.K., Kool Keith, the Insane Clown Posse, Bad Brains, Body Count, Six and Violence, Mudvayne and Hoobastank.

Development

It was developed by Paradox Development, now owned by Midway Games, and was published by Eidos Interactive

Gameplay

The roster of underground wrestlers features more than 20 combatants, including notable hardcore wrestlers, music personalities, and a few adult film actresses.

The game was greatly improved over its predecessor, including a more in depth create-a-wrestler mode. The game also included a switch for turning the game's blood effects on and off in contrast to the original game's lack of said switch. Each wrestler now has an introduction video, though the female non-wrestlers' videos contain more eye candy than wrestling. There are also three unlockable music videos.

Reception

Despite promises of an improved gameplay experience, the game was a critical flop when released in 2004. Its sales numbers remained respectable, however, moving nearly 300,000 copies through 2005.

Promotion

The television commercial included Insane Clown Posse, Vampiro, New Jack, and Major Gunns.
