Flashback, The Quest for Identity -- U.S. Gold

You are Conrad B. Hart, an agent of the Galaxia Bureau of Investigation. In the course of a routine investigation, you stumble upon a sinister plot--several high ranking government officials are actually alien life forms in disguise. However, while you may have spotted them, they also have spotted you! The aliens erase your memory and abandon you on a strange planet. It will take all your strength and cunning to save the earth--and your mind--in this side-scrolling adventure game for the Sega Genesis.

The animations in this game were incredibly fluid. The whole game seemed to fit together perfectly. I thought that the button combinations were awkward at first, but soon came to love them. This is my favorite game on the Sega unit thus far. I can't wait to see what is out in the future from Delphine and U.S. Gold!

No doubt a definite improvement over Out of This World. Pretty good graphics with great sound effects complimented this game enormously. This game has a storyline that kept me glued to the edge of my seat. Play control was very nice, though a bit hard to get used to. Nice job for U.S. Gold. By far, the best game for the Genesis.

Ooohhh... ahh.. sa-weet. This game alone is reason to buy a Genesis if you do not already own one. U.S. Gold has outdone itself this time with a game that comes just short of looking alive. The story is way deep, the challenge level is truly a challenge, the graphics blow away anything else on the Genesis and the minimalist use of music throughout the game adds the coup-de-grace to a top notch game... If you miss out on this title you will never forgive yourself.

This game is truly awesome. The graphics are super smooth and very detailed, and while the music is minimalistic, the sound is still exciting. The controls are kind of confusing at first, but once you figure them out they are extraordinarily precise. Flashback is without a doubt a new member of the top ten games ever. A definite must have.
