Pretty Cool Collector's Edition with nice extras - Must Add to your Collection - Nice Price
on August 3, 2018
Super excited to get this game. I played the original back in the day and it's awesome to see they did the game justice with cool extras in the collector's edition. It is highly recommended. I just unboxed this... and I took 1 star off for the manual not fitting into the metallic case. The manual really should fit into the metal case - Must've been an oversight. It's not a HUGE deal to me though - I plan to keep everything together in the collector's edition box. As far as the numbered plate falling out... it does happen - INITIALLY. There are 2 "clips" in the case to secure the plate. Once I secured the plate in these clips, the plate didn't fall out... so no problem there.
There is a code for the sound track on a leaflet. There is a link provided where you can download the color sound track. The COLOR manual is a breath of fresh air. Included manuals are not common in the releases of today... let alone color manuals. While most gamers don't use them, they are cool to have for collectors and complete collections. Plus they are cool to browse through here and there.
Flashback was a hit back in the 90's. The graphics / animation style was akin to Prince of Persia on the Super Nintendo. The game doesn't have a TON of replay value but is a game you can pick up here and there after you beat it. It is a full on classic game ... that has a very unique style. There are 2 modes of play - Original and Remastered (so-to-speak). The original has a few features for "simulated" CRT modes, scan lines..etc. There is also a new mode that allows you to play the game "Updated." The update has a tutorial and different graphics options for devices of today.
I dig it... and I recommend it. The price is nice. This is a great addition to any collector's stash - Don't miss out.
