    Another game by the lazy game-loft studio. It is decent and will have you engaged for the first hour or so, but it gets bogged down by glitches, it gets repetitive, bad voice acting and plot holes. This game looks great on paper, and will give you some entertainment, but not for long. Collapse

    It's a game that tries to immerse you into a very large 18th-century world where corruption and betrayal pushes your character to fight for his life. It's not a bad game, and you will thoroughly enjoy yourself for the first 90 minutes - and after that, if you can overcome the repetitiveness of the missions, the ridiculous glitches, missions that suddenly stop half way, and a combat system way too simple to make fighting fun, it will stay as a fun game to play. As for me, sadly, it hasn't. Collapse

    Assassin's Creed meets Grand Theft Auto in the world of Pirates of the Caribbean and tells the story with Uncharted's flair. No, it's too good to be true. Simple gameplay mechanics, plain character models with lifeless faces, weak voice acting, faulty camera and bugs make BackStab a disappointment. [August 2011, p.74]

    All of it is intriguing, interesting, and enjoyable; there's nothing like it on the App Store. It is a little repetitive though, and the graphics and animations really keep it back from being named one of the best on the App Store.

    If you've been desperately craving an Assassin's Creed game set in an 18th Century pirate wonderland to play on the go, this will do the trick, but don't expect too much from it. If you can deal with all the bugs, you'll certainly be taken on a bizarre ride and you'll have a ton of stuff to do in the world.
