BackStab, a new title from Gameloft, is wowing fans with incredible 3D graphics. Does the rest of the game stack up to its visual power? The backstory to BackStab does. Set in the 18th century, the player takes on the role of Henry Blake, a man with nothing to live for but vengeance. Blake serves as a dark hero, rogue killer, and all-around-badass. He’s lost his fiancée and his life as he knew it, and he’s got nothing else to lose. Which means, of course, that this game is about to get gory. While Blake is mayhem on the loose, however, there’s more to the game than just slaughtering everything. He’s a man on a mission, and getting to the final target is the key. There are also numerous side quests to supplement the main campaign, which gives the player more game time and more bang for his buck. BackStab takes place in a free-roaming 3D environment, and the beauty of the visuals can’t be overstressed. Nor can the intensity of the combat. As the name suggests, BackStab is extremely bloody, so if you like your video game violence to be minimal, take a pass.
