A 3D platformer; aliens never been more aggressive!

Flashback: The Quest for Identity is a semi-serious platforming game, delivered from a third person perspective. One of the issues of the game is that it is a little weird in terms of the way it looks; it has a cool, overall, construction, with a futuristic theme. The game takes place in the year 2142, which, as you might imagine, puts this game into a very cool and interesting position, giving it a retro futuristic theme. The game, gameplay wise, has a diverse roaster of portions; it offers you platform stages, it also has shooting to keep you shooting for minutes, and, when you feel that you had enough of what it has to offer, you find that it also adds some puzzles into the mix. This portion is not as diverse as some of the others, yet it is pretty well done, it has enough in it to interest you. You might even compare it with Prince of Persia games were it not for the graphical issues that it has, issues that come from the fact that, unfortunately, the game was initially designed for the ill-fated jaguar console, which was far from mature when it was released. Still for retro futuristic action lovers, Flashback: The Quest for Identity is surely worth looking into.

A very fun platformer

Gee, another "Save the world from ending" game. In this platformer game, you play Conrad B. Hart, a man who had his memory wiped out after he overheard some plans about destroying the world. Now, his mission is to escape the facility where they locked him up and save the world. The visuals are really good and the gameplay is fun, with a lot of cinematics and video clips that explain the story further and all of this make up for a really interesting and exciting game, despite the cheesy and typical plot line. The distance from one save point to the other is too large and that might make the player anxious and careless in his hurry to save his game before he dies, otherwise he would spend another hour redoing everything over again. Also, while interesting, the puzzles can become a bit repetative. But all those objection are minor and can be easily overlooked by the sheer fun and excitement the game provides. The platforms are beautifully designed and the animation is nice, although not very fast. The sounds effects are also good and realistic, but with no music. I recommend this game to all platform game fans with promises of a time well spent and a lot of fun. If you liked it, maybe you will like Out of this world, which is the game's spiritual predecessor.
