Back To The Future: The Game
Six months after the events of the third Back to the Future film, the DeLorean Time Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley—minus its owner. Now Marty must go back to 1931 and recruit the help of a reluctant teenage Emmett Brown to save his pal Doc from certain death. Can they repair the rifts of the past without accidentally erasing the future?
Authentic to the last detail and a hit with reviewers the world over, Telltale’s Back to the Future series reunites the stars of the original movies and is a phenomenal success.
Written in collaboration with Bob Gale (BTTF movie writer and producer), the series features the voices of Christopher Lloyd as ‘Doc’ Brown, Claudia Wells as Jennifer Parker and in a ground-breaking cameo, Michael J. Fox returns to the franchise that helped make him a movie legend.

I usually play a game for a couple of hours before I need a break, but I didn't move from my seat until I had finished the first episode (About time), as I wanted to see how the story unravelled and came to a conclusion, and, ultimately led onto the next episode. I've done my best to explain the essesnce of this game, without giving away any spoilers, because to do that would ruin your experience of the game for your first playthrough. If you like point 'n' click adventures and BTTF films, you should buy this in a heart beat, everyone else should stay clear.
I thought it was a really good game, the story was true to the films and made sense.
I found like the other reviewer that it does draw you in and found i was spending longer than expected playing through it. The hints system was really useful, as I didnt have to keep running to my PC for a walkthrough as some things were a little "what how was I supposed to figure that out" Not quite on the same scale as Monkey Island but enough to annoy me, but not a lot.
My only problems with it was that the loading times for cutscenes was a bit slow, and the movements were difficult to get used to. Also Officer Parker's head disappeared, well I say disappeared, what I mean was it was like play doh and stretched across the screen. Actually that was quite funny. The ending was hilarious, and kinda stupid, but it was okay.
I dont think I'd play it again but for £15 it was well worth the money and some of the stuff they say just takes you back to the films, also a nice cameo from Michael J Fox, and the guy who does the voice of Marty was really talented.
1) The present (or should that be the past?) the 1980s (in specific 1986, set just months after the Deloren got smashed by the train at the end of BTTF 3).
2) 1930s (which gets visited quite a lot)
3) Alternate 1986
It's spread over the course of 5 episodes, which easily go by fast enough once you know what your doing. It's a point and click adventure game which, just like others of the genre, you go through asking questions and using items in your inventory to figure out several problems.
The plus points:
The locations are beautifully done, especially the alternate 1986. The script, as it was written with the help of the original directors, works so well. You can tell it's a Back To The Future game, the characters speak just how you'd expect. The characters themselves, from the Doc and Marty to Biff and then the ones from the 30s like young Emmet, Edna and Trixie Trotter and Artie McFly and the alternate 86 version of Lorraine, George and Jennifer all work so well. This is game that just sucks you in and never lets you go till your finished.
If I am doing plus points I guess I have to do the minus points. Having only played the Wii version then I can only remark on that version:
The load times between scenes are way way too long. It felt as if, every time I figured out the next piece of the puzzle the screen went black and I was stuck watching the flux capacitor flashing in the corner (ok so that doesn't make sense till you realise that's the load screen between scenes.Read more ›
and when it arrived I instantly popped it in and started to play it.
My first thought on this game is that the story is brilliant, worthy of the Back To The Future Title. The graphics are basic that is to be expected as it was designed for the pc. The voice acting is superb with Christopher Lloyd reprising his role as Dr . Emmett Brown and A.J. Locascio taking Michael J. Fox's old role as Marty McFly.Michael J. Fox returns to the franchise taking on the roles of Willie McFly (Marty's great grandfather) and futher Marty.
The game play is good, not great but good but this is due to it being a basic point and click game most of the time.
There are problem with this game and that is that they put no effort into converting it to a home console format.
Like I mentioned before it is meanly a point and click game and as you progress through each episode it tens to frizz wile trying to get to the next part of the story.
Another thing that annoys me is that they have kept the episode layout of the pc game , this was acceptable on the pc because it aloud them to put more development into the game and release each part through out the year but with the home console game this is not acceptable as you have to go back to the main menu to click on a new episode link in order to access the next part of the story instead of just progressing to the a next level like a normal video game.Read more ›
