Back to the Future: The Game consists of five episodes which are a sequel to the movie trilogy.
Doc Brown the inventor of the time machine has gone back to the '30s and he will die via mob justice. Now its up to you to change his fate, but as we learned from the movies, screwing with the past mucks up the future. The goal is to make sure the Hill Valley of 1986 is just how Marty left it.
Telltale fail miserably at making their own circa 1931 Hill Valley anything more than a studio lot full of comedy gangsters.
The gameplay is traditional adventure stuff. You walk around as Marty, talk to citizens and use items to solve puzzles. Unfortunately the puzzles are very easy, uninspired and boring.
The characters are just as bland, also most of the characters are cardboard nobodies. At least, in some cases, the acting is good. On the most basic level, the actors sound like the original characters.
The graphics do not render smoothly and the worst part is that these tech problems distract from the cinematic gameplay.
The sounds of the game are pretty decent. Music is mostly in the background and not too distracting and actual sound effects also take a backseat in favour of the voice acting. The voice acting is definitely the best part in the game.
If you are a big fan of the movies, then you could think about getting Back to the Fute: The Game. However, if the franchise does not really appeal to you, then this game may not be in your interest because the game practically relies on the player knowing the characters and the setting.
