    Not the best investment but as a package deal I wont complain, well maybe a little. The controls are sloppy and the walking around is even weird when the camera tries switching to a different angle. As for the story, it is funny and hearing the voices bring back some memories.

    Sweet plutonium piles, this time travel adventure is one hell of a trip down memory lane. It's got everything: Doc's real voice! The DeLorean! Einstein the dog! That score! Well, everything except real gameplay. This is more an extended cut-scene where you occasionally get to press a button, move between locations or chat to NPCs.

There's no risk of failing puzzles, only of taking a really long time to solve them - and even that's unlikely seeing as they're more 'show the dog the shoe' than 'attach cheese doodle to fly paper and throw at crocodile'. Still, BTTF! Expand

    It is entertaining even if you have not watched the film, which was my case. The graphics are eye-catching and the plot is wise enough. I do not know if it is worth paying for the whole package, though, as I only played episode 1 freely.

    An oversimplified but enjoyable counterpart to the Back To The Future films. [Issue#204, p.96]

    Telltale has absolutely nailed the feel of the franchise and the charming visuals are a treat. Christopher Lloyd is great as Doc Brown and newcomer A.J. LoCascio's impersonation of Michael J. Fox's Marty has to be heard to be believed. The music, a blend of cues from Alan Silvestri's memorable original score with a hint of Huey Lewis, is near perfect. [April 2011, p.81]
