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

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 3DO.

Discounting the cinemas, this version is exactly the same as every other version that I've played. The cinemas, on the other hand, are very detailed and take advantage of the display power of the 3DO. If you've already got this game on another platform, you can safely skip this version, but if you've never played Flashback before, you owe it to yourself to pick up this -- still -- very innovative title.

Every bit as good as all the other versions... need I say more?
