Nintendo Switch has allowed to keep the traditional elements that attracted the core fan base while welcoming new players. It has been done by means of a rewind feature that facilitates the use of 'Flashback'. Even though it remains as a simple port of a game that most have already played, it still is worth a ride.

25 years after its original release we still love this cyberpunk adventure. The new filters and rewind options don´t add much to the original, but Flashback didn´t need that kind of improvements. Physical edition is also great.

A great chance to try this retro experience but also a really hard way to introduce ourselves to a time in which one only shot could end the game. Great adaptation work.

A nice Anniversary Edition of a piece of gaming history. First you'll have to tame the joypad controls, then you'll be able to deep dive into this fascinating game.
