Flashback Review (PC)

28 March 2009
  • Excerpt: 21 years have passed since then and the game has been remade by developer VectorCell and published by Ubisoft, with much of the core experience unchanged, and with Paul Cuisset, the designer of the original, involved with the creation process. Unfortunately, what might have seemed impressive so long ago no longer resonates and Flashback is just another platformer with an unappealing story and mediocre mechanics.
  • Pros: + Some nice graphics, + Quantum glasses
  • Cons: - Limited story appeal, - Inaccurate shooting

  • Summary: With no expansion options, an unresponsive controller and a poor range of games, the Atari Flashback is a bitter disappointment. If you want to relive the 80’s, then its time to dust off the original.
  • Pros: Compact, simple AV cables connects directly to television
  • Cons: Only 20 games with no expansion options, unresponsive and poorly designed controller, novelty factor wears off very quickly

  • Summary: Die absolut gelungene Mischung aus Jump'n'Run, Actionspiel, Adventure und knackigen Rätseln wird Euch stundenlang an den Bildschirm fesseln. Die schnell erlernte Steuerung und feine Animationen lassen einen tief in die Story sinken. Bis heute ist der Flair von Flashback unerreicht und ich kann es nur jedem Spieler empfehlen!
