Flashback: The Quest for Identity

Game Description: 7 huge worlds, mind-boggling puzzles, awesome animation, captivating gameplay, many items to manipulate, awesome cinema's.... hey, it sounds like Flashback for the Atari Jaguar!

Graphics: First off, animation is stunning. A smooth rotoscoped 24 fps make for an incredible graphic extravaganza. Though, if you think the movement is good, check out the cinema's! They have fit an enormous amount of real-time movies into this cart. It's worth playing forever just to see the next cinema. These little movies enhance the game tremendously and look great. Backgrounds are nice, though some lack in color and detail. I wish they used more of the Jaguar's advantages on this game, but it looks great none-the-less. RATING: 7.5

Sound: FX are great, water dripping, gun fire, grunts, foot-steps and more add to the game's realistic stealth. There is usually music in the cinema's, but while playing the game tunes only pop up every once and a while. While confronting bad guys some fast paced tunes flow, but nothing more. RATING: 7

Gameplay: Gameplay is the real substance that makes Flashback such an exilerating experience. You have to search, fight, do jobs, unravel mysteries and so much more. 7 worlds may not sound like a lot, but they are huge an extremely difficult to conquer. Flashback is awesome. RATING: 9

Overall: 64-bit Flashback only looks and sounds a little bit better then the 16-bit version, but at least the game is huge in playability. If you already have another version, then skip it, but if don't own a version, then take my word for it and give the game a whirl. Flashback is an amazing experience. RATING: 8
