    As a compilation of five excellent adventures, it's hard not to recommend Back to the Future: The Game for Wii. However, given that it's also available at the same price (and in a better form) on PC and Mac, it's impossible to recommend this version over those.

    Back to the Future: the Game is a good adventure, recommended to all the fans of the series. Just, if you can, don't buy it on the Wii: the framerate is a nightmare.

    Back to the Future: The Game successfully translates what made the original movie great into a fun, challenging, imaginative and funny adventure game that's often a joy to play. Telltale has crafted a loving tribute to the film, then, but this is a loveless port, marred with frequent load times and small presentational glitches.

    There is a terrific adventure game here, but you'll have to tolerate multiple irritating quirks to get to it. [Nov 2011, p.79]

    If only we could go back in time and make Telltale leave this in the oven for a couple more months. [Jan 2012, p.114]

    Fun, witty, and mad. This is how a Back to the Future game should be. The return of the cast make this game instantly memorable and further exploration into the universe is always welcome.

    Horrid, it's such a shame. Glitchy, horrendous load times and clearly missing hd. Another downside is that it's very easy to finish due to theHorrid, it's such a shame. Glitchy, horrendous load times and clearly missing hd. Another downside is that it's very easy to finish due to the hints section, if you use it. This game is a really bad port. On the plus side, great story, full of nostalgia and great voice acting. I would only recommend if you found it somewhere really cheap or if you are a massive BTTF fan. Full Review »
