As in TellTale Monkey Island, I'll wite the same review for each episodes since they're all part of the same game.

Speaking of Monkey Island, this game plays about the same (not like the newer ones, walking dead and Games of Thrones). It's funny and has a good story that stays true to the Back to the Future movies. I couldn't not help myself to push the hint button a few times because some puzzles were challenging.

I had a good laugh a few times and could't help smilling when I saw the overboard in last episode ! The music is also good, glad they used the same as the movies.

I really thought this game would be good. I thought I could actually make choices, but unfortunately it was just a story. I wasn't able to enjoy this game! The story really hasn't been the best. I still play in hopes of getting intrigued.

It's not a common issue for games to sincerely laugh because of game's humor, nor it is a common issue to make a very good game on existing intellectual property that is loved for thirty years. Yet Telltale accomplished the mission. Not being a fan of quests, but being a fan of "Back to the Future" it was an honor for me to buy this game. I was very satisfied with the very first minutes of the game where each detail was put with love and care to the original movie trilogy. Yet story repeats itself in many ways, and having watched the movie dozen times you'll hear dialogs, that would never be original in a movie (if part 4 would ever be filmed), but for a game it seems like a miracle. Music, sound effects, voices of actors and finally the time of gangsters will make smile anyone who likes original three movies.
Yes, some story lines leave questions, one can say that the game is not perfect. BUT! It seams, that Telltale made the final appearances of the actors that we love so much and whom we'll never see in a big blockbuster movie. For me, it seams that it is a goodbye to Marty and Doc. I'm gonna miss you guys

Telltale still were making adventures more than interactive novels in this one and adventure lovers will like it although puzzles are not very hard and so is the whole game. But it doesnt matter, you dont play it to be challenging but to enjoy the story which is great and focuses mostly on the fans of Back to the Future trilogy and frankfully, who doesnt love these movies? another chapter from this universe is what we wanted and its story can be compared to movies, Doc and Marty travel trhough future past and alternate realities dealing with problems they cause.

Spam it in a multplayer game you can't be kicked from.

P.s. The song was featured in the original movie back to the future. That's how this relates to the game.

Back to the Future: The Video Game, is an awesome and enjoyable game!

It picks up 6 months after the movies, in May 1986, and you play the role of Marty trying to find out why the Doc went missing. What follows is a fantastic game worthy of the Back To The Future series. The music, sounds, and speech are spot on, and it really makes you feel the connection to the BTTF universe. The graphics are cartoons and very well done, and the gameplay is perfect. But the real gem is in the story, which is fantastic and fulfilling, witty and funny, appealing to anyone who enjoyed the movies, and drawing a player in to see it to the conclusion.

There were some bugs trying to run the game (setting up the video settings would crash it), but there were steps in the discussions on how to get it working. Aside from this I completely enjoyed the 20+ hours i spent in this game, and if you are even remotely a Back to the Future fan, you will probably enjoy it too. Telltale did a great job on it, and now I'm hoping they will continue with another installment - don't leave us hanging!

9/10

I am a big fan of the Back to the Future movies, so when I saw this game, I couldn't help but play it. Back to the Future: The Game contains five games (or episodes) that take place 6 months after the movies. It has a compelling storyline that kept me wanting to finish the game. I also liked the cartoony style that TellTale brought to the table. For all you Back to the Future fans this game is for you. If you like strategy games or adventure games, this game is for you. My only complaint, is that the camera angles sometimes make the gameplay difficult. Other than that, this game was better than I expected it to be.

Well I picked Michael Corleone for my alter ego - the next expansion I'm suddenly Harry Callahan and Doc keeps calling me Sonny Crockett. I'm so confused.

Product received for free
Was travelling through time:Wing
One basic thing, I've never watched a Back to the Future movie, so I can only think that game is based on a film.
Back to the Future is point-&-click game made by Telltale Games, as we all know, it must be episodic, game itself has 5 episodes that were released from 22 December 2010 to 23 June 2011. Game action takes place in fictional city Hill Valley. Here's the list of episodes and short description of what is going in them(I will try to include as little amount of spoilers as I can)
  1. It's About Time - We begin game in 1986, but when we find out our best friend is missing, we are looking for him, after that, we are going back in time to 1931 to rescue our friend!
  2. Get Tannen! - When everything seems ok, our friend finds out that our grandfather is going to die and we need to rescue him AND make the most dangerous criminal in Hill Valley, will go to jail!
  3. Citizen Brown - Everything looks fixed, everyone is happy (except that one guy in jail), but then! We are transported to Future Hill Valley or Pure Hill Valley or, as I prefer to say Alternate Hill Valley. In this episode we need to make problems in Pure Hill Valley to meet Citizen Brown and convince that HIS Hill Valley is bad and people are unhappy!
  4. Double Visions - After rescuing Citizen Brown and destroying his ideal vision of sad Hill Valley we need to rescue him again from his enraged wife, then go back in time to 1931 to find his younger self and convince him to break up with his future wife, after that is done, episode ends.
  5. OUTATIME! - We are still in 1931 and we must find Younger Brown his older self kidnapped him and then we must take care that Younger one, will do his presentation at Science Expo. After that, everything seems ok, but then! The Woman who broke with Brown, stole his DeLorean and went back in time, and we need to find out to what date she travelled, after that, we are going to 19th Century to stop arson of the Saloon and in consequence, destruction of wholeHill Valley. In the end, we must manipulate with stolen DeLorean and then make sure that she'll land in 1931... And in the end is kinda funny plot twist but discover it by yourself :)
And now's time for few most important characters:
  • Marty McFly - Main protagonist, time traveler, also known as Sonny Crockett, Yakov Smirnoff
  • Emmett 'Doc' Brown - Best friend of Marty, time traveler, inventor, also known as Carl Sagan - The Infamous Arsonist
  • Edna Strickland - And here are 2:
    - Young Edna - Cute, manipulating, desiring power and control over people She's the real arsonist
    - Old Edna - Alone, miserable, spends days on yelling
  • Biff Tannen - Typical bully, in the right timeline he works for Marty's father.
  • Arthur McFly - Only seen in 1931, our Grandfather, he makes kinda big role in Marty adventure
  • Kid Tannen - The most dangerous gangster in 1931, he needs to be arrested (Episode 2)
  • Einstein - Our cute and lovely dog <3
  • Citizen Brown also known as Alternate Emmett - He thinks that HIS Hill Valley is perfect, we need to convince him that this city is Town of fear
  • Citizen Edna also known as Alternate Old Edna - Manipulates with Alternate Emmett, after Marty destroys her husband's vision of perfect city, she tries to manipulate with his memory
  • Young Emmett - Young inventor, feared of his dad, in sick love with Edna
  • Trixie Trotter also known as 'Sylvia' - Our (unknowingly until end of game) Grandmother, speakeasy stage performer, cute
Let's see how it looks...
Gameplay - 8/10 - Typical point-&-click, with annoying camera sometimes, yet still, gameplay is great
Audio - 6/10 - Not bad, not good, decent, BUT with soundtrack from movie I think
Graphics - 8/10 - Nice, clear, not-eye hurting, except characters sometimes look like dead (I mean, without emotions)
Story - 10/10 - Great! Just Great!

OVERALL - 8/10
- Game itself has a few bugs here and there, and sometimes can be harder or easier, but this is one, great, funny story with lovely characters and with unfortunately decent audio, I can recommend it for fans of point-&-click or Telltale Games lovers

Greetings, Wing

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.

The fact that this is a telltale adventure game about the back to the future series should pretty much determin on its own weither or not you should buy this game. the writing is fantastically clever and reminiscent of the origional trilogy. If you like point and click adventure games or the back to the future franchise then you should buy this game. If not then the game isnt for you and it is never going to be for you.
