    For Back to the Future fans or just adventure game aficionados, Episode Four is amazing. And from the looks of the teaser at the end of this chapter, the next one might just surpass it.

    If you're invested in this series already, this episode is absolutely going to deliver. If you're not a fan of Back to the Future or the previous episodes, it's not going to change your mind.

    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 comedy and presentation is still top notch, and with this series coming to a close pretty soon, the plot twists are pretty intense.

    With each episode, Telltale manages to raise the bar and make the game even better. This time the puzzles are much better and there are situations where some thinking is absolutely necessary.

    Back to the Future continues to be interesting story- and characterwise, but still doesnt hit the spot as an adventure game.

    As previous episodes, a simple and accesible adventure, a bit more complex than the previous ones, with joyful humor and a fun story. Although we think it could be even better.

    The fourth episode is a step back of what we see at the third one, pretty easy, short and only interesting for those who loves the movies. TellTale Games can make it better, we all know.

    Despite its faults, Back to the Future Episode 4 remains a pleasurable nostalgia trip for fans. Among other clever winks to the film series, Marty blasts a few people off their feet after hooking his guitar up to a car-sized speaker and rides around town on a makeshift skateboard. Like every episode before it, Double Vision ends with a twist, which helped build my excitement for Telltale's next (and final) entry, but I hope Episode 5 tries to break the mold.

    Not much better or worse than past episodes in the series, Double Visions still has a spot of inspiration in its story, and a few good ideas for some of its puzzles.

    Double Visions is as good as the previous episode, but we're really in for some grandiose season finale. [July 2011, p.99]

    There's a lot of talking and gathering things for other people. It's rather ho-hum.

    Double Visions continues the downward trend of Back To The Future: The Videogame.

    Somewhat better than Episode 3, with a bit more variation and more challenging puzzles. It delivers a few hours of easily forgettable entertainment, for one of those rainy days where there's nothing else to do.

    It's still better than the first episode, but its weaknesses will leave you wishing you could go back in time to stop yourself from playing it--space time continuum be damned. [Sept 2011, p.73]

    As far as Double Visions goes, its pervasive blandness makes it the weakest of the series to date, and with yet another trip to Hill Valley's past, it's hard not to feel like we've been here and done all this before.

    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

    Much alike the first episodic entry into this series of games, episode IV isn't as stimulating in terms of plot points and storyline as the last two. The setting has (for the most part) been largely featured before in previous installments but the voice acting is still quite stellar. If you play for the puzzle solving and don't care about the dialog this might potentially be your favourite. Perhaps one of the most interesting moments of this game is during the end credits as we're shown a sneak peak as to what's foreshadowing in the final title. Full Review »
