    Back To the Future is a sacred franchise to many fans, Telltale have done well to stay true to the world of Doc and Marty without too much in the way of deviation. While re-creating their universe, Back To the Future Episode 1 produces a great story and some fun puzzles to solve.

    There's a ton to like about Back to the Future.

    A great experience for fans of the movies, but there isn't much to go back to after the story ends. If you're a fan of point-and-click style games, and if you even remotely enjoy Back to the Future, then this game is great purchase.

    Back to the Future is a welcome surprise -- it's a movie-inspired game that doesn't suck. Instead, it pushes the characters in interesting directions and whips up a good story.

    Overall, this is a solid, if not utterly spectacular, adventure game carefully wrapped up with a beloved license.

    Telltale's storytelling abilities are second to none, but technical problems on the iPad once again rear their ugly head.
  7. Feb 20, 2011
    A fantastic example of an excellent story and outstanding voice acting, but suffers from a few technical issues including tricky controls and lag in some areas of the game.
