Might just be a UK Press thing..But when reviewed on PS1, C+VG's Paul Davies did not mince words. .
Jaguar owners should maybe buy this game. Everyone else forget it-unless you bought a 32-bit machine to play 16-bit games..
Said even then it didn't come close to SNES Yoshi's Island..
Rayman was 70 levels of seen-it-done it...
Old ideas dressed in the emperors new clothes. ..
Game was big and testing enough but ultimately a jazzed up 16-bit title..
For Jaguar owners only etc.
Yeah, I just don't get that. I remember seeing all of the screenshots of it thinking it was positively beautiful. And considering how many sequels it got, I'd say it's been one of the most successful 2D platformer games of all time. They did have that 3d one, but it was kind of crap (with the same camera issues most games that came out around the same time had). Good example of bad camera angles was the sequel to Flashback, Fade to Black (which should have had a JagCD release too, I think, though yeah it did have some seriously bad camera angle issues.)
Thanks! That's the one I was thinking of. Would love to see that completed, the Falcon has so few games made for it.
