Another hilarious story driven experience from Tell-Tale, this is an extension/sequel to the Movie trilogy, so relax nothing canon is disturbed :) Doc has vanished and it's upto you (Marty Mcfly) the protagonist of the entire BTTF franchise to solve this perplexing conundrum! Expect the old rivalries, romances and relationships to keep you interested while you click your way through this wonderful adventure.

Telltale’s Back to Future game acts as a kind of 4th movie (even though Bob Gale, co-creator, co-writer and co-producer of the film trilogy is on board he claims that this isn’t part of the series canon) which is to please die-hard fans (it even has vocal talents of Christopher Lloyd reprising his Doc Brown character and a cameo from Michael J. Fox) it isn’t meaty enough to please non-fans or general point n click aficionados.
The game mechanics follows the template of TellTale’s more traditional controlled adventures like Tales of Monkey Island but no comparison can be made for the puzzles as they are either really light or virtually non-existent, maybe something that was aimed at a more general audience considering the franchises mass appeal. There’s more than a bunch of plot holes that can be found in the games’ story which is probably to be expected when you write about excessive use of time travel but I constantly found myself going cross eyed trying to keep up with just how some events where happening in the last two episodes (the game is broken up into five chapters.
The real highlight is the voice acting and sound design which is top-notch as expected, considering the talent they have on show.

This feels like Back to the Future. The voice acting is impeccable and the atmosphere reeks of the 80's. I loved the Back to the Future movies and the game is no different. There are problems, however. The graphics sometimes look sloppy and the lip-synching is off sometimes. If you were a fan of the Back to the Future movies, try this out.
Spectaculuar Game, not for everyoneQwertyfour | Sept. 27, 2013 | See all Qwertyfour's reviews »
I personally have enjoyed the Back To The Future game because of how great the plot was including the hilarity. You can download the first episode on the Telltale website and see if you like it, it'll take 2 hours tops if you click everything. At first the graphics and controls are a bit odd, but you'll grow into it. The voice acting was amazing, and the plot was really inspired. It is worth mentioning that this is an interactive fiction game, and will play as an extremely extended movie.
If you enjoyed the Back to the Future movies because of it's cheesy 70's humor yet cohesive plot, you'll absolutely adore this game.

The most iconic sentence from the first movie, what lead us to the amazing sequels. The Back to the Future trilogy was one of my favourite trilogy. I do not know how many times I've seen, but not be enough to see. Many years later we got an excellent game series from the Telltale Games. The BttF game is a point&click adventure game. We controll Marty McFly, the main protagonist from the film trilogy. Unfortunatelly, Marty's voice isn't Michael J. Fox, but A.J. Locascio made a good job. His voice confusingly similar to Fox. Dr. Brown has got the brilliant Christopher Lloyd's voice. The gameplay is simple, you clicking on a place, and Marty walk to there and you can combine objects to each other. The NPC's are familiar, but we got some new from them. The story is good, like a sequel to the trilogy, but in video game form. We don't get too much AAA p&c adventure games nowadays, so the BttF is more than a simple point&click adventure game.
