Great For What It Isemptyhaven | Feb. 24, 2015 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
What is this? Honestly, this is Telltale at its early stages, trying out the episodic format, and getting a feel of this form of gameplay. Considering how far along it's gotten them, I'd say they learned from their "experiments" with this and Jurassic Park.
What's cool is that there is so much involvement in this project from some of the original people involved. This means that this game can actually be considered canon.
Gameplay is fine as it is, but it could be a bit better. The story is interesting, and I really liked that Telltale made an effort to make it a part of the whole series (and not attempt some reebot or their own interpretation). Graphics are also good.
If you're a fan of the movie trilogy, then this is a must-play for you.
Not as good as Telltale's newer games884okeoJ | July 2, 2014 | See all 884okeoJ's reviews »
As a fan of the Back to the Future movies, this game intrigued me when I first heard about it. However, the actual game is painfully average. The strengths of Back to the Future are its great voice acting and plot, but beyond that it just seems like a cash-in on nostalgia.
The controls are painful to use and the camera is horrible in Back to the Future, and the puzzles are fairly easy. The game suffers from incredible linearity, as there is only one way to solve a problem. While not quite as bad as Jurassic Park the Game, Back to the Future is only worth buying for die hard fans of the franchise.
One of the best Telltale games everinsane11 | June 5, 2014 | See all insane11's reviews »
"Back To The Future: The Game" is a "point and click" adventure from TellTale Games, coming from the famous "Back To The Future" movie trilogy franchise. The game is composed of a total of 5 episodes, each of them smartly connected between each other (like a TV mini-series). As a fan of Back To The Future, I think TellTale did a really amazing job to be authentic to the movies. From a graphic standpoint, however, it looks different to the movie but it has that usual charm you can encounter in TellTale games that still make it classy enough to not complain about it. From a gameplay perspective, you have to manage mouse control and keyboard for moving, which is bothersome to me, but it is still OK to manage. I am not a big fan of inventory that are not available right away in front of your eyes, which sadly this game have. I believe the inventory system a little annoying in the game. Story wise, it is very likeable and rather similar to the movie structure, which is great. Actually I tend to even prefer what TellTale did with Dr. Emmett Brown than on the movie, he looks more human and not only kind of like the crazy scientist he was on the movies... Also, Marty McFly is definitely a great hero to play with and he is super awesome in the game. I like the introduction of new characters like Edna Strickland, Trixie Trotter and another family member of the McFly with Arthur... I am not a big fan of the chase sequence at the end of most the episodes, it is certainly reminiscent of the movie endings but it lacks any fun gameplay in my opinion. I adore however some sequences such as in Episode 1 in Emmett's Lab, this was thought very smartly.
I definitely felt in love with this game, despite it not being perfect, it has some kind of funny and yet enjoyable adventure that I was expecting to have with Back To The Future for a long long time ago.
Good adventure gameDemilisz | April 16, 2014 | See all Demilisz's reviews »
Back to the Future is a very good, classic point and click adventure game with plot that could be consider unofficial fourth movie. The plot is good and puzzles are sometimes hard but fair, there is no single point in game where player can feel like something can't be figured out with information the game provides. Of course BTTF fans would be having the most fun playing this game, but someone not knowing movie series also can give it a try. The only, but genre related, flaw is that game is one time only, once completed there is nothing here to come back for.
New BTTF? Good! This? Ehhh...Nymanthe1st | April 16, 2014 | See all Nymanthe1st's reviews »
I am a very big fan of the Back to the Future trilogy, and when I started playing this game I could not contain my excitement, something new related to BTTF, and I was not disappointed by this game. That said, I think the only reason I really enjoyed this was because of how much I love the trilogy, the game seems stale and not very fun at times, but in all it is great for an extended BTTF experience.
