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.

This is a solid port of a classic game. Cutscenes are smooth, although sometimes some of the cutscenes triggered by picking items up and what not take a few seconds to play. Minor complaint. There are several visual upgrades, all of which are optional and can be turned on or off at will. You can also swap between classic and remastered music and sound effects. Controls are mapped well and feel responsive. There are three separate savegame slots, so no more jotting down passwords. The rewind feature is neat, works well, and is nice for anyone who wants a more laid back experience and doesn't want to have to worry about replaying large chunks of levels every time you die. There are some bugs in the menu that will cause your custom settings to revert back to default, but it's not a big deal. Overall, I'm happy with this Switch port.

As for the Collector's Edition itself, it's incredibly disappointing. The SNES cartridge style metallic case is neat but a bit underwhelming. Personally, seeing as it's meant to be a display piece, I think it would have been far more appropriate to have designed the case to match the size and shape of an actual SNES cartridge, instead of a standard Switch game case. There's a download code for the updated soundtrack. The manual includes level layouts, sprite artwork, and control instructions, which were scanned from the original manual. Unfortunately, these scans are very low-quality and do not look very good. As others have mentioned, the manual does not fit into either the metallic case, or the standard case, as it's about an 8th of an inch too tall. Also, the slot for the game cartridge itself is too large, which causes the cartridge to immediately fall loose. Minor gripe, but considering this came from a large, established publisher, an oversight such as this is absolutely amateur and somewhat laughable. There's also a metal card inside, which is stamped with a random number out of 30,000. Neat inclusion I suppose, but I feel like that money could have been put towards including something much cooler, like a keychain, a small "shield" replica, or something.

All in all I don't regret my purchase. The extras aren't great, but the port itself is solid, and I'm glad to have a physical copy.

Some people are nit picking size of metal collectors box and size of manual. This is a great little collectors edition with items you can display on your desk or in your collection. A good retro game to add to your switch collection as well with some modern updates to add to your gameplay if you choose. Happy to have gotten my hands on this. The cartridge tin is great for a display item while it also comes with a traditional style switch case for regular storage of you game.

Liking the game so far, love the collectors edition. Yeah the manual doesn't fit but you have a box to keep it in. No complaints, fair price.

I busted a nerdgasm when I saw this upcoming release. I'm going to have another fake-illness-day and play this game to completion just like i did when I was 12, faked a tummy ache, and stayed home to foil the aliens' nefarious plans.

Phenomenal motion adventure game brought to a modern sytem, with some graphical and musical enhancements, along with a rewind feature that can be fun to play with (seeing how far I can jump and fall, then rewind and try it again). Thanks to Paul Cuisset for coninuing this games great legacy.

First the game is awesome and playing it on the go even better, and i love the collectors edition. Aside from the issue with the booklet and the tin case i think the price for the collectors edition was very fair, glass is half full.

Not amazons fault. The collectors edition is sloppy. Game card can’t stay placed into tin case without falling out. Instruction booklet is too large for either case. Makes for an unappealing collectors edition
