I hope this isn't as clunky as Deadlight. The "move on a grid" style of gameplay Prince of Persia pioneered back in the day hasn't aged well.

Nice flashback. I'll definitely grab it for my PS3. Both new and original in one package - me likes.

I want to like this, I loved the original but I have to say looking at the comparisons, the old one looks better. The color palette and art style is just more cohesive.

Can't believe the new games animations look worse then the original. His jumps animation looks jerky as hell. On the plus side, the original game is included...so that's good I guess.

I have to admit, I still love the previous Flashback. Its in the gameplay. I will prefer to play the old one on emulator. And comparing old in-game shot and new artwork is a little strange, isnt it? :-) It looks great, yes, but it doesnt have that Flashback feel.

i don't get why they didn't just redraw the sprites for 1080p. maybe re-do the environments in 3D if they had to. maybe even improve them if they could (although they where pretty damn fluid already) the gameplay was great before too, it wasn't really a shooter, it was like POP or oddworld. an exploration puzzle game interspersed with small bouts of action. gearing this up to be more action oriented is already a fail imo. why does it need 360 degree shooting? i just don't get it. it seems the only people who get remakes this gen are "just add water" they retain the gameplay, and feel of the original but update the rest.

Agree. First time Ive heared about it, I thought its gonna be 2D HD, which I love!!! They made a nice game, but its not Flashback anymore.

Loved Flashback & Another World...doubt they'd stand the test of time now.

I have no idea why this exists. Just play the original.

About the game


What's up?

    droezelke @Ian_Nottingham: My advice: try one first. I did before I was thinking of buying it. Didn't buy it because I get simulation sickness with every game I tried. (18 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Seems likely? First year it's been out in the wild.. first chance for them to give it a big go. I hope so too. (18 minutes ago)

    Ian_Nottingham @GriftGFX: I really hope we see something amazing at E3 with VR.I need a reason to purchase one since i haven't been able to try one out at a store anywhere. (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it'd be pretty surprising/amazing if PSVR actually lasted several years and developed a large library, personally. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean.. you can speculate too. I don't think anyone has a magic eight ball. I bet Sony doesn't even know. (25 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Thanks. (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's probably too early to say.. but if Sony doesn't make a big fuss over VR at E3 than you'll probably have your answer. (30 minutes ago)
