This game is more fun in theory. The thought of a back to the future game was pure nostalgia until I played it then it was a game of constant back and forth trying to solve "puzzles" or as I see it silly crap. As if I care if the soup tastes good, that doesnt make me feel like its back to the future. I give this game a solid mehhhhh.....

Define irony...

Buying the first episode only to later find that you can get it for free simply by going to the tell tale website and downloading it direct.

Define irony...

Living in 2016 and playing a game off a franchise which envisioned 2015 way cooler than what it really ever was.

Define irony...

Playing a game about characters who worry that their actions will disrupt the space time continuum, only to find by accident mid game, that there is a glitch where if you instead of walking past cueball (the barman) stop and talk to him about everything and then walk around the corner and prop up the door. Your characters will really forever be stuck in 1931 as the game will not be able to register you hitting a red pipe to open up a secret door as 'you never saw the secret door in the first place'. The whole game time continuum collapses and your stuck forever in 1931. The only way out is restart and dont talk to cueball until he shows you secret passage.

I'm personally a huge fan of the franchise and like me if you are old enough to have seen back to the future at the cinema you would have been deeply sorrowed when you heard that the entertaining rumours of a back to the future 4 aka back to the future rides again was canned largely because the main actor Michael J Fox had been diagnosed with a debilitating illness known as Parkinsons. With that in mind according to credits it seems that a charity dealing directly with parkinsons benefits from the sales of this game, So with that in mind, how could you ever give this a thumbs down?

The game is a point and click adventure which unlike tell tales other franchises like the 'walking dead', which adds a layer of illusion that your choice matters, here it simply doesn't matter. Instead you just solve puzzles by playing around with things you picked up and placing them at the right place at the right time.

The game continues on 6 months after back to the future 3. The delorean lands back at doc brown residence unmanned with the exception of 'Einstein' doc's dog. (How the delorean survived is explained in one of doc brown's many speech bubbles in game). Marty when he opens up the delorean finds out that the automatic retreival system kicked itself in and that Doc must have got himself into some type of trouble. The only problem is the date system display isnt working properly and Marty has no idea where doc went. The only clue is a womans shoe on the floor of the delorean. From that Marty MUST find out where doc went to and save him.

Because the game storyboard is written by back to the futures original script writer Bob Gale and the voice acting and appearances are from many of the original crew including Christopher Lloyd and Michael J Fox the game plays true and is a fitting tribute to the fluxing back to the future fellow time travellers. There are literally hundreds of easter eggs planted just in the first episode alone which many will miss without a keen eye and a trigger happy screen shot shooter. Also there are MANY speech bubbles with dialogue gems that a impatient person might miss. Take for instance when Tannen is getting his shoes shined. Instead of accepting shining his shoes, decline doing so and then walk up to him again and repeat. His speech changes MANY, MANY TIMES. My personal favorite is, "tell Ma she will get her cut next week!"

The best thing for me is the musical score. I just cant get enough of the music. Amazingly it is even more fitting for a game than it is for a movie. It has the magic of turning a humdrum objective into a 'yeah that's right man I just saved the human race' and on the flip side the other music which has the feel' whoops did i just wipe someone out of existence? My bad!' If god created this world then we have all been jipped. He should have made it so back to the future music follows us everywhere with everything we do. Life would just seem so much more meaningful.

Finishes review with a posted GREAT SCOTT thumbs up!

Cue back to the future music that makes it feel like i've corrected the whole space time continuum.

Good Game. If you like Telltalle Games. If this is your first i will tell you. This game is fun, but very confined. You can only move where the game want's you to go, and there is a 90% chance episode 4 will be too hard for you to finish. 2. This game is a click and move.


Rotten Immaturian's Face - 51/100

Overall 5/10

IM GOING TO SAY NOT RECCOMENDED BUT, I WOULD SAY IF YOU LIKE TELLTALKE RPG'S THAN GO RIGHT AHEAD. NOT LIKE A MASS EFFECT OR SKYRIM RPG THOUGH.

While my Dad seems to like the Back to the Future Movie Series, I think Telltale have done a great job with their Point and Click Adventure Games, Back to the Future: The Game or Back to the Future: Part 4 is by far a neat game which contains Time Travel. Set 6 months after the events of the third film, the DeLorean Time Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley driverless. Travel through time as you meet up with McFlys, Tannens and Browns through the ages to right wrongs, amend timelines, and prevent terrible terrible mistakes by going up to 88MPH & Who needs roads we're When going to.

Episode 1:
Marty McFly is just getting re-acquainted with the 1980’s when the DeLorean Time Machine he saw destroyed by a speeding train materializes before him. He finds out that Doc Brown is trapped somewhere in the past and that he must travel back in time to save the Doc's future!

Episode 2:
Marty is keeping an eye on young Doc Brown's proverbial date with scientific destiny when he and 1980s Doc must prevent gang boss Kid Tannen from wreaking havoc on Marty's family and erasing his girlfriend from the future!

Episode 3:
A time-stranded Marty has a rough and tumble return to the 1980s and finds himself in a topsy-turvy or should we say Politically Corrected version of the world lorded over by the enigmatic "First Citizen Brown."

Episode 4:
The Hill Valley Expo has arrived! Back in 1986, Marty and First Citizen Brown must join forces to create an epic invention so that he can prevent the young Emmett Brown from making the worst mistake of his life.

Episode 5:
In the Series Finale of Back to the Future: Part 4, lives are changed, mysteries are solved, and paradoxes are avoided as Young Emmett seals his fate, sending Marty and Doc on a climactic chase through Hill Valley's past, present, and future.

While the title gives you the idea that this game is, essentially, the video game version of the film trilogy it is actually a 5-episode long sequel to that. What's more is that it's amazingly done and Telltale not only brought back many of our favourite characters from the show (and timelines, too) but we get to meet new ones, as well.

The plot revolves around the disappearance of Doc and once Marty finds out he ended up in 1931 he is set out to save him - of course, speeding up to 88 miles per hour is a must for the journey to begin! It is an era of gangsters and speakeasies due to the prohibition of alcohol and of course this time period has its antagonist in the form of a Tannen.

I would love to go on and elaborate the story but it would be a spoiler, plus, this game is best played if you are a fan of the trilogy as there are so many references to each film that it really helps you with the immersion. Bob Gale (creator of the trilogy) was brought on board to assist with the game's story, hence the references and the similarly funny nature of many of the dialogues.

As for the gameplay: it is a standard point-and-click adventure game but unlike the classic ones (Lucasarts) released decades ago this one only has a small inventory (you never really have more than 5 items with you for long) and it is always one or two places where you can wander about and once you completed the needed task the story progresses accordingly taking you to new areas. Some puzzles can require some thinking but if you are desperate you can always use the in-game "Hint" function at your leisure.

I enjoyed the story from beginning to end but I must admit I felt the tale lost its momentum around episode 4. It became a bit convoluted and I wished it'd end as soon as possible. The ending made up for the last episode's shortcomings and I might just do another walkthrough after I finished watching the films once more. Having been released 5 years ago this Telltale adventure does not have any achievements and nor do we have decisions that can result in a different story progression - this time it is as linear as it gets.

Overall, Back To The Future The Game is a great video game and I hope Hollywood will never ruin the trilogy by making a sequel or remaking it. This game is another hint for them so that the story can be left alone for good. If you liked the production of Zemeckis and Spielberg and you're also appreciative of the games Telltale releases this game is a must for you!

If you're a big fan of the original Back to the Future trilogy, you need this game. No, seriously, you NEED this game. Period. The storyline is incredibly good and feels authentic to the original movies, pushing the characters in interesting directions that I hadn't expected. It takes place after the movies, and as Marty McFly you'll end up traveling back to prohibition era Hill Valley after discovering that a prolonged absence by Doc Brown is due to his having been murdered back in the 30's. As expected, traveling back in time to save him leads to unexpected alterations in the timeline and a frantic hustle to fix one mess, only to create another. Overall it's very cleverly written and worthy of the franchise.

Aesthetically, the game takes a more stylized cartoonish approach to the characters rather than attempting realism - something that I personally rather enjoyed. And the voice acting - hoo man the voice acting is amazing! Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as Emmet Brown, and though Michael J Fox does not reprise his, the person who fills in as Marty does such an amazingly good impression that I literally could not tell the difference. Seriously, I was genuinely shocked to learn it hadn't been Fox voicing him. Best yet, Fox returns for a couple of cameo roles in the final episode.

From a gameplay standpoint, it's a point-and-click adventure with pretty simple puzzles. Overall its approach is straight forward and only a small handful of times did I find myself getting hung up on a puzzle - however, the puzzles aren't really the point so much as that you're involved in an interactive movie, and this is made very clear by the fact the game has a hints feature that will outright TELL you the answers if you're well and truly stuck, allowing you to breeze through the story at a pace that's already hardly broken by frustration. At least, not in terms of the puzzles themselves. This isn't to say this game isn't without issue - things like movement is a bit buggy and aggravated me quite a bit, especially when switching between sceneries. The inventory is also kind of annoying the way it makes you have to scroll through it instead of having all items available at once. As inconvenient as this can sometimes be, it's hardly enough to detract from what makes this game shine.

Seriously, if you're a fan of the movies, put this in your collection. You'll thank yourself.
