Flashback is in This List

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Flashback in the following list:

Matinee Fisticuffs and Shootouts

Sometimes you just want to play the hero. These games are violent and include shooting but, as with B-movies and 1980s TV series, it’s as much about the quips, characters and fantasy settings as it is about killing. The drama may be peppered with cinematic gunfire but, like those TV series, the real draw is spending time with the heroes every week.
