These games are quite good. They embody the movie trilogy quite well. These games are really continuations of one another. The built in hint system is handy for helping you keep going when you are stuck. Each game is fairly short, but engaging.

having watched the original movies in the theatre when they came out it was nice to enjoy another helping of time travel with Doc and Marty in this great episode game. the voice acting was great and characters well done. would have been nice to be able to explore more of the world but c'est la vie.

i hope there might be either another series of Back to the Furure episodes or maybe a movie with the ...to be continued at the end.

this is one tale told that was worth the money and time

I got this plus a bunch of other stuff from humblebundle for $1 to check it out. Normally I say ♥♥♥♥ adventure games hard cuz they are boring as ♥♥♥♥, but B2TF should be awesome, right? Wrong. They made it way, way too cartoonish and childish, like something you would see on nickelodeon for toddlers at 8am. Completely ♥♥♥♥ing ruined it. It doesn't make sense either because B2TF came out in the 80's so no kids today even know what the ♥♥♥♥ Back to the Future is. I played the 1st out of 5 episodes and sure as ♥♥♥♥ aren't playing any more of them. Good job turning one of the greatest movie series of all time into a game for 10 year olds and under. Embarassing. 0/10

I bought this a while ago and now I took the time to play it. This is great stuff! If you like the original movies, you are at the right spot and will love all the references and a continued story. The graphics are fun and the motion capture is so well done that it really catches all the details you know from the original characters. The voice acting is simply awsome (sogar auf Deutsch wurden die Originalstimmen benutzt!) and during the cut scenes I sometimes forgot for a few moments that this is just a game and not an animated movie.

If you don't know the movies, sometimes it is probably difficult to keep up, but still a fun game!

The puzzles are well balanced and usually work without using the hint system. I would call this intermediate complexity.

Recommendation? YES YES YES!!!

Tons of fun and a great way to relive one of the most enjoyable movies/stories in the past 50 years.

Additionally, if you haven't seen the movies (or it's been quite a long time), I recommend watching them before playing; I feel this would enhance game-play by bringing the familiar. Finally--as with all play-once/story games--I recommend buying only at deep discount (66-80% off).

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.

Yet another good adventure game from Telltale Games. Not the same quality as The Walking Dead/Wolf Among Us, but way better than Jurasic Park.

If you like the movies, you will probably like this game aswell. It is true to the story and it brings back many of the same feelings that the movies did.

It is a very fun game, with plenty of jokes, and it does have pretty good graphics for beeing an Telltale adventure game pre. Walking Dead.

The puzzles is easy to figure out, and the QTE's are not hard at all.

It took me close to 10 hours to complete it, each of the five episodes took about 2 hours.

Back to the Future: The Game is similar to the Sam & Max games in that you're given puzzles to solve but none of the choices you make can alter the game; I guess that's something that came later with the Walking Dead games.

Still, I enjoyed the game and I enjoyed the movie references. If you're familiar with the movies, you'll catch the references and get some good laughs from them. It took me 10-15 hours to complete the series.

So i'm obsessed w/ BTTF and i was nervous to buy this game, but i can honestly say that i love how they put a story line together that fits into the movies, its just so much fun and could play them for hours. If youre a fan of the trilogy or a complete new-comer, you'll throughly enjoy this game.

At the time of writing this review, I have played the first 3 episodes. I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed watching the film. The reason for my quick review is that in Episode 3, Hill Valley reminds me of my country, Singapore! Mind you, this is a country where the government banned bubblegum and porn, just like in the game! The similarities are almost eerie to say the least!
