Defunct Games
Leave it to one of the greatest games in our collective memory to finally give the CD-i something worth experiencing. Flashback remains, hands down, one of my favorite games, and this incarnation is no exception. The CD-based versions feature new cut-scenes and slightly better sound, breathing new life into a game that will never cease to amaze even the most jaded current-gen purists.

Si les possesseurs de CDI ne pouvaient que se réjouir de l'arrivée d'un tel hit sur leur bécane, il convient de tempérer quelque peu leur enthousiasme. En effet, cette ultime version de Flashback est aussi la moins bonne d'entre toutes.
