20 years after the original game’s launch, Conrad is enlisted back to active service for the triumphant return of one of the most acclaimed franchises in gaming history.
It’s not a reboot. It’s Flashback re-imagined. The original Core-Team revamped their own creation, leveraging the best of today’s technology while remaining true to the classic side-scroller that set the standards of the genre in the 90’s.
One of the best adventure-action games ever created re-imagined by its creators. It’s the same team. It’s the same passion. Only this time, they have had much more firepower at their disposal to recreate the legendary classic!
Gorgeous graphics, amazing animations. It’s the Flashback you’ve always dreamed of. True to the original spirit but made a million times better by using modern engines such as Unreal and Havok. The makeover is completely stunning.
It’s all about Gameplay. The team modernized gameplay mechanics, making the game more reactive, offering new features, like gadgets and an experience progression system. But the developers kept the original formula in mind: a fine balance between rolling and shooting, exploring remote space stations and obliterating hostile alien planets.
Bringing back new memories. The story was revamped to speak to 21st century gamers. Most of the cast of the original game is still here – Conrad, the Morphs – but you can expect new characters and a few twists you’re definitely not going to forget... this time.

Wow, 40? Don't let the other review scare you off. This is a remake, it just actually makes sense this time around. A bit easier than the original due to the control timing not being as much of an issue as we all remember old console games revolved around. DRM is inevitable in today's world, so deal with it or stop playing video games. The game is short but sweet. I would give it an 80, but have to go full bore since the other reviewer was absolutely trolling.
It's a 're-imagined' of an almost two decades old game with the same name which can be considered as cult classic. That being said, aside from the graphical upgrade, the game doesn't have a single redeeming feature that makes it special and superior from the original. The controls are awkward, the audio and the voice acting are terrible and you have to deal with Uplay to boot. I know the majority of PC gamers are against using it. Anyway, this game is certainly not worth your time. Seek the original version instead.
