    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]

    The second episode of the Back to the Future series by Telltale is sure to please the fans with its great story and characters. Unfortunately the puzzles don't get much better and, even if the script is great, you gotta offer some brain teaser to gamers in order to keep 'em interested. It's still a good way to spend three good hours.

    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.

    Even though the gameplay remains noticeably lightweight and the setting feels largely recycled, Get Tannen! still succeeds in entertaining.

    Second time's a bit more of a charm, although the classic adventure style still isn't the perfect fit for Marty and Doc. [May 2011, p.86]

    The gameplay took a hit since the last installment, but the storytelling is still superb.

    Get Tannen is a fairly enjoyable experience thanks to lots of funny situations and humor and some pretty good acting, but doesn't offer much as an actual game. The puzzles are too simple to be satisfying, and the episode feels a bit too short as well.

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. Full Review »

    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

    Just enjoy the ride.

Although IThe 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. Full Review »
