Backbreaker: Vengeance Smashes Its Way to E-Shelves Today, Pick It Up!

505 Games’ arcade kinda-not-really sports game Backbreaker: Vengeance is set to hit the XBL Marketplace today for 1200 points, and they’ve released a launch trailer to commemorate this occasion. Backbreaker: Vengeance takes the best part of football (the dirty hits!) and condenses that into a game that’s less about sports and more about strategy than anything.

I got a chance to play a bit of this at E3, and even though I’m not a football fan at all, I found this game supremely enjoyable. It’s more a puzzle game than sports game, so anyone should be able to pick it up and have a great time with minimal effort. On top of that, it’s a ridiculous amount of content for one game, with three modes, and about 30 levels for each mode. Definitely check it out; you won’t be disappointed.
