Trailer Xbox 360 PS3

After years of prayers, Flashback HD is real and it will be released some time this year. Paul Cuisset's famous game has been totally remade in 3D, as proven by today's trailer.

I actually tried to get the rights to this some 4 or 5 years ago, but it was in legal limbo. Let's see what they do with it... on one hand, original creator on-board. On the other, they made Amy, that awful game...

I've played the original. Not that I enjoyed it more than it's deserve (it wasn't really my type of a game) but I'll give this one a try as well.

ZOMGZ!!!! LOVED THE GAME WHEN I WAS A KID. The very beginning when the guy opens his eyes used to terrify me :( and think I got far once.....about it. But I only got to play it when I was at my uncles so. Still, one of my fave snes games.

I've played this probably more than 5 times to completion on Amiga and it's probably my most beloved of games. Being honest though it's not amazing. A collection of things like how exceptionally polished it all is and the fabulous music(Amiga that is) and art make it an excellent experience that people should definitely try though. Hopefully we'll be able to toggle between old and new as it really shouldn't be that hard to include

You Sir need to go out more if this is last gen for you

I have been wanting this since XBLAs 1. retro remake. The orginal is the nr. 1 game I have played the most with Turrican, Turrican II and Alien Breed series.
I seriously hope they don't fuck this up... And I must say, it dosen't look too promising in this trailer with too much shooty shooty bang bang!!!

Opinion:
- needs less color to really flash me back into childhood days
- some key animations (transitions) need a little bit of refinement
- i'd like to have controls more like the original and not as shown

Now this is a more worthwhile revamp of the original unlike the pointless rehash of Another World. Looks great. Exactly what should be expected.

Hmmm...to be honest, now I finally saw the trailer and I thought its gonna be HD 2-D game. A little disappointed by that. And I also loved that theme music in the main menu of the original. Maybe Im stucked in the past too much, but....You know...

Well, it is a HD 2d game, actually. Albeit using 3d models, but it's still 2d.

it's not doing much for me either tbh. i don't like what appears to be 360 degree shooting. or that it looks much faster paced. i liked the methodical nature of the original. that everything was an on/off toggle. crouching, standing, rolling, running, gun out, gun aiming etc. this is looking like a twin stick shooter in the world of flashback...not what it was after.

Agreed. This is more like Bionic Commando. Its nice, many people will like it, but HD original would be much better for me.

I would be really happy if we get more often true remakes like BC Rearmed.
It's perfect example how you should do remake of old classic - updated visuals, punishing difficulty, similar levels and controls, improved boss battles, remixed OST etc. That old school feel!
Easily my favourite GRIN title.

Flashback HD is from AMY's developers, you know - chances to turns out decent are LOW.

Didn't even have to be told that this was the Unreal engine to make it out. Because of this, looks horrifically generic which is exactly what the original wasn't. The trailer looks like so many other games out there (in the cutscene parts anyway)
