"Overall, Flashback: The Quest for Identity is an innovative action/adventure game for its time.

A third game in the series, Flashback Legends, was in development by both Delphine Software International and Adeline Software International for a planned released in 2003, but was cancelled when the company went bankrupt and ceased operations at the end of 2002.

Flashback was and still appears to be mistaken as a sequel to Eric Chahi's videogame Another World. Although both games do share similarities, the storylines are completely different, and there is no major connection between two characters in Flashback.

A two-track CD soundtrack was released featuring music inspired by the game, but not directly from it.
