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.

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

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.

An amazin tribute to one of the best sci-fi movie (well, trilogy) of all time. If you're a Back to the Future fan and like point and click games, give it a try.

It’s really nice to still see point and click adventures holding their own in today's market, I think overall it is a genre that is sorely under appreciated. However, this is primarily due to the fact that the overwhelming majority of modern game developers seem to completely miss the mark when it comes to compelling narrative and an art style which complements the game.

Back to the Future is a fun little dive back in time to the good ‘ol days of point and click adventure but with a very pleasing 3D skin overtop. As much as I've enjoyed my time with this game so far, I wish I could say it was a must buy throwback to the days of old, but I can’t.

I don’t think there is any one aspect of this game that is detrimentally flawed but when I step away from the game after a play session I find that had it not been based upon a movie franchise I loved as a child, nothing about this game would stand on its own and draw me in. That’s not to say I don’t think it’s good - I love this game - but my recommendation must be taken with a grain of salt because unless you were/are a fan of the Back To The Future franchise, I don’t think there is that much here for someone just looking for a great Point & Click.

do not expect it to be "Walking Dead" or other great TellTale games. its kind of warm up before them. So keep your expectations based on this.
it's simply a puzzle game. Your choices does not make any difference at all. Basically, U choose your sentence untill u get the right one. And there is only one way to solve the puzzles. İt's very very linear game.

Very limited places, very limited characters. almost no irrelevant person in anywhere. So, streets etc may seem quite empty.

Sometimes controls are very annoying. But once u hear the music u forget all and say "Hell Yeah".

It's great to travel at BTTF universe, travel through time.

However only BTTF fans MAY enjoy it.

I just finished this 10 mintues ago and I have to say, It is amazing. I have played The Walking Dead and I died, alot. This game makes it easy for me not to get frustrated with the hints and timeless essence of it. This game has little playthrough value, but is great if your bored and you want to play it with some friends or family! Especially the last episode.
I recomend getting it on sale worth at least ten bucks.

I find this game really entising, it is great it contains everything that a movie turned game should have; easter eggs; references; some same things like the chime; a good follow on story and most importantly they nailed the characters. It has great puzzles and gameplay and doent seem to bore me. Once again Telltale have made a great game. They got everything down to the point, inventory, difficulty and graphics.

But the one downside the controls are a pain. The camera angles cause no fault in this, they;re just a pain!

It took me a little while to really get into the game, mostly because I was a noob at using this type of controls (I've always been a playstation girl as opossed to a computer gamer), but after the first hour, I was entranced. And the whole series, they all just keep getting better. The dialouge is spectacular and the voice acting is totally spot on, it truly does keep the feeling of the movie.

In the early chapters the mini games/puzzles aren't as great as in the later chapters but are still a ton of fun. Now that I've played several adventure, point and click games, I realized that this series is my favourite so far.

If I have one complaint it's that the hints are sometimes pretty useless. For each topic/scenario they give you 5 different ones, supposedly getting more clear as you advance, but I found they generally just say the same thing, like I know I need to use the pipe, (you didn't need to give me 4 different clues pertaining to that) but never a hint as to 'how?'.

Telltales Games, you have done an outstanding job of bringing back some old and hyper appreciative feelings of one of my favorite sci-fi comedies.

Ever since I saw the movies on TV, I have always loved seeing the DeLorean, especially when Doc turned it into a stylish time machine. And it's great to be hearing those sounds, the lights and the effect of time travel in this additional storyline. Which happens to follow up the original films.

The puzzles are mind boggling as I had a tough time deciphering many of them! If you want to test your meddle with Telltale's amazing work of Back to the Future: The Game, you are in for a ride. Hearing some of the old cast from the movies was so great! It was especially a surprise when I heard/saw that Michael J. Fox, the original Marty guest star on one of the episodes of Telltales' Back to The Future game!

I got this on the Holiday sale so it was worth the $6.24 pricing! OR if you feel like supporting Telltale Games at it's full price, what are you waiting for pal?!

Played through the game and it felt very much like the back to the future films that I remember. This has an excellent story line that to me was easy to follow. I'd very much recommend this game to those that like the Back to the Future films (although I'd recommend you'd watch those first so that you'd understand some of the references and characters in the game though ;) ). I loved the ending however (very back to the future) and some of the plot twists along the way (but won't say what as it would spoil it :) )

GREAT SCOTT! A GREAT MOVIE GAME! Marty, we have got to go back to the past to stop the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ NES game version of our movie from coming out! Set date to September 1989, to destroy LJN for making horrible movie games! - Doc Brown

If this game was created and substituted for the Back to the Future game on the NES, everyone would be super happy. THIS GAME is awesome, point and click, who gives af? It has great narrating, and the Art style is SWEET. This game is like a Sequel, taking place after the events of the first 3, starting off in 1986, Doc is missing, and Marty has to find him back in 1931! It explores the past of Hill Valley. That's all I will go into, since it is WAY more in depth than that, I recommend this game, STRONGLY if you love or like the BTTF series, and it is very cheap too, and it will go on sale for even cheaper.

I give it a 9.5 out of 10 for a final rating, sometimes it is a LITTLE confusing, and somewhat buggy, but otherwise it is solid for a release from 2010, they could do much more with this series now, seeing Telltale's success with The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2, which are very in depth too.

BUY THIS GAME. Thank you for reading my review, this is my first in-depth review.

Quite how I had the patience to play almost the full five episodes of this game, I do not know. But I did, only giving up when I met a bug that prevented me from completing it.

This game is nothing but a half-decent storyline marred by boring, uninventive and frustrating puzzles. Do not waste your money.

Love the game and i think its more for die hard BTTF fans then anything else, if you can ignore some of the plotholes and mistakes Telltale do make and just enjoy the game for what it is, a throw back to the series and a telling of a new story within the universe then i think you will enjoy it.

Theres a lot done right in this game and a lot you will see in more recent titles like The Walking Dead from TellTale. My advice check it out i think you will enjoy this five episodic adventure.

It's an alright game. Not as good as the newer Telltale games though. Each episode is installed seperatly and the characters are a bit clunky, this includes the movement buttons. The way Marty walks you would think he was on drugs, and the dog, well the dog is just lol. Good game for Back to the Future fans, but not good enough to pay full price.
