Flashback 2 is not a blast from the past – it’s a total misfire.

A depressingly awful sequel whose main faults are probably due to a lack of budget and development time, but that doesn't excuse it being considerably less entertaining than the 31-year-old original.

I cannot in good conscience recommend this. Your time and money is better spent elsewhere.

A game as legendary as Flashback deserved a far superior return to this adventure that, yes, has some good ideas and passion for science fiction, but also a very poor finish in terms of technique and game design.

Flashback 2 is a shameful nostalgia cash-in that is an affront to the classic original. Unfortunately awful in every way imaginable, do not buy this game.

Flashback 2 is a mind-boggling mess of a game with few redeeming features, and a sequel we just didn't need.

It's an abysmal end, resulting in a controversial sequel, leaving fans of 1992's rad Flashback most likely preferring to return to Conrad's previous amnesia in the original's plot to forget that Flashback 2 ever existed.

A modern sequel to Flashback could have been a title perhaps not as memorable as the original, but certainly a worthy sci-fi experience. Unfortunately, everything seems to have gone wrong as Flashback 2 is a disaster in almost every respect.
