Summary: If you don't mind setting up a UPlay account and playing through two levels of DRM, Flashback is not a bad platformer. The game has good graphics and some entertaining segments but a meaningless plot, hammy voice acting and an unlikeable protagonist.
Summary: I was a huge fan of the first game (I still have two copies of it 21 years later). I was pretty excited and kind of nervous when I heard about this rebooted version. After playing it I had the following annoyances: The voice acting was particularly terrible, the dialogue was weak ("awesome-sauce"?
Summary: I'm one of those who loved the original Flashback. It was a game that brought to 1992 a great art concept, with interesting narrative and an enigmatic main character. It wasn't simply a "video game" per se. It was rich in so many aspects.
Summary: Being a big fan of the original game that I keep playing on my Megadrive, I was very excited when I heard about the HD version.

Summary: I am a fan of the original game and I was actually playing the original one at amigaforever. I found out by chance that it's out for PS3. I bought it immediately and started playing after I finished the original. This helped a lot the comparison.
Summary: It's a remake, so, everything in the game was apparently thought for original Flashback fans. All possible scenarios references are there. Some jokes in the dialogs, too. And the puzzles are smart as the originals were.
Summary: Congratulations, you have managed to create a remake of a game made decades ago and did a worst job in the animations, amazing!!! It looks great but gameplay, controls and animation is far worse than the original.
