    If you played the first episode, you'll definitely like this one. I can't recommend this episode, as well as the full package, enough.

    For fans of the films, you can hardly go wrong with the Back to the Future adventure games. If you've already bought the first, then you know the kind of quality you're in for. If you're hesitant and looking to see if it's maintained throughout the series, then you're in luck, because the Back to the Future games are still right up there with the gold standard that Telltale's set for licensed adventure games.

    The complaints from the first episode remain as well as the great Back to the Future-Atmosphere which makes this game worthwile despite its shortcomings as an adventure game.

    The second chapter in TellTale's Back to the Future series improves the previous one in several aspects. However, it's still extremely short and a rather easy game, so it's far from what we expected.

    Even with these improvements, it's held back by n incredibly small game world that too frequently revisits its few sets, and makes being stuck in the '20's for a second episode monotonous. [July 2011, p.77]

    Despite new well constructed charachters, the gameplay is too easy and the absence of great innovations is conspicuous. But don't loose your heart: maybe it's the prelude to something better.

    The only thing we may grant this Back to the Future is its consistency in terms of mediocrity. As time passes by, I'm losing faster and faster any hope to see Telltale getting back on the right tracks. Afterall, the game does very well commercially, so why change it? Bad or not, the most important for the publisher, it's the sales. Sad, sad, market laws.

    If you're a BTTF junkie, it's a must have.
    It has the same flavour as the movies, even that little things.
    The story is fun but the puzzles
    are rather easy.
    Just enjoy the ride.

    Its a good game but no improvements on the graphics storyline and voice acting are its strong points .
    The puzzles are a tough cookie than the
    first one.Story is following nicely making sure that the gamers
    can't wait for the next one . The gameplay Camera needs a little work

    Much better than the second episode. The puzzles actually require a bit of thought this time and it's a little bit longer. The story continues nicely and the voice talent is still great. Can't wait for the next episode. Expand

    This is my favorite episode. Voice acting draws us into the game nicely. Again, I feel its more like interactive cinema. Camera is a bit annoying when walking through town. Kinda wish there was more to the game though, but that's only speaking as a fan of the movies. Expand

    The second episodic entry into the BTTF series of games makes a improvement over its predecessor; slightly a small, modest one. Although I found this "chapter" to be shorter than the first that might simply be because I enjoyed it more. The plot felt less linear and gave players better dialog options and a crispier storyline to immerse themselves in. That was much appreciated. Whilst the locations didn't change to a large degree the atmosphere in a night time setting felt real and genuine. Character development needs to be further explored though. Expand

    It was ok to play through. Overall it was pretty boring. It felt like the first episode just repeated with a few different puzzels. Overall kinda boring. Expand

    Second episode is as easy as first one was. It does not present enough challenge. But, I quite liked how the story continued and I'm generally happy that I can see heroes of my youth again. Expand
