Critic Reviews for Flashback

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.

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.

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.

VectorCell's 2.5D take on the PC classic Flashback amounts to a good remake, but not a great one.

Flashback on Switch is the definitive edition of a truly special science fiction platform/puzzle solving/shooting video game that already more than proved itself to be a 16-bit classic.

Flashback is another classic that lands on the Nintendo Switch and this 16-bit gem brings with it everything that made it a nostalgic piece of gaming, along with some additional new elements. Thanks to its old school gameplay, those who know what Flashback is about are set to become very attached to this re-release, while those less accustomed to its demanding style will face some frustrating difficulties.

This is the best version of a timeless classic, treated with respect and with QOL improvements to make it palatable even to younger players. Wait for a price drop and grab it.
