    Default Flashback is on a ton of different systems!

    Remember that game Flashback: Quest for Identity? Man, this game is on a ton of systems. I had it for my Genesis back in the day, but I didn't know it was on so many different systems.


    Sega Genesis
    Super Nintendo
    Sega CD
    Atari Jaguar
    3DO
    FM Towns Marty


    Am I missing any?


    Also, has anybody tried most of these versions and if so, which one is the one to get?

    I just realized that we don't have Marty Towns in the database. That should be fun to compile.

    I liked the 3DO version the best but again, these are all pretty much the same game. The 3DO has the extra full-motion video clips and they're nice and clear.

    And also the PC and Amiga.. but they are not consoles. My vote goes to either of those versions... mainly because of the quality of the cutscenes.

    And, how the hell did 3DO magazine give this game 3 stars out of 5!

    I guess that's a lot of ports... I think Rise of the Robots had a lot more, though (for some reason).

    I have the Genesis and Jaguar versions. Don't hold me to this, but I think the Jag version runs the cut scenes a little better. Other than that, I cannot find any differences in gameplay or graphics between them. Are all the versions pretty much exactly the same?
