This game is awesome! I'm still on episode 1 but the story is solid and follows the movies just as much as I'd hoped. The art style is interesting and can seem a little dated but don't let that turn you away. This game is perfect for die hard Back to the Future fans like myself.

Great Scott, a game based on a movie that isn't terrible! Actually, it's fantastic! Back to the Future The Game is basically a continuation of the trilogy with lot of references and lots of humor. Being a Telltale Game, I thought it would be more of a click adventure, but it's actually a third-person adventure game.
Story: Adorable, funny, tragic, emotional, and surprising.
Gameplay: Ehhh, game mechanics are clunky but not too bad.
This is one of those few games where you're really sad in the end because you want the story to keep continuing. Make sure to buy it as a bundle with all the episodes.
The only negative would be that the graphics are pretty dated but it's okay.

Back to the Future: The Game (5 episodes)
Narrative and characters are spot on. Nothing really special about this one.
A must play if you're a fan of the movies. Kinda felt like Back to the Future IV.

it's a great game, esp if you're a fan of the bttf series, although the controls are a little wonky. and while you can get about 5-10 hours out of this game (depends on if you use walkthroughs, ect, somethings can take awhile to find.) i think you should get this game while it's on sale. i think it's worth maybe about 15$.

i started playing this series shortly after the first episode came out, and am going to replay it soon.

overall, its a pretty good game, i'd recommend it if you can deal w/ slightly-weird movement controls. (if you've played it, you know what i mean, lol.)

Do you like Back to the Future and its sequels? How about point and click adventures? If you do, then pick this game/games up. I has solid puzzle solving, good humor, and pretty good writing. 9/10 Would go back in time and mess things up and then fix them again.

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.

Really amazing game, I loved each of the 5 episodes and always hungry for more after each episode. Writing as as well as you expect from a Telltale game....needless to say 10/10. I cant really think of much else to say about it other than its worth every penny (and more) if you enjoy point and click action/adventure puzzle story games.

GREAT SCOTT! A GREAT MOVIE GAME! Marty, we have got to go back to the past to stop the horrid 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.
