Game Review - Back to the Future

About the Game
True to the spirit of the original film trilogy, the time traveling exploits of "Doc" Brown and Marty McFly continue in Telltale's Back to the Future: The Game. The game features a story by original screen writer Bob Gale and the voice talents of Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Claudia Wells and the uncanny skills of A.J. LoCascio as Marty McFly deliver the charm, comedy and fun of the film series to video games.  Back to the Future: The Game is available in October for the Nintendo Wii and PS3, is rated E10+ and will retail for $19.99.
Product Features

  • Play as Marty McFly in a 5-part cinematic adventure true to the films
  • Meet up with your favorite characters like Biff, Jennifer, George and Einstein.
  • Change history, then cope with the unintended consequences
  • Built-in goal and hint systems streamline gameplay for frustration-free interaction

My Take on the Game
If you are a true fan of the Back to the Future movies you will not want to miss this game. There were some very fun parts in controlling Marty and interacting with a slew of great characters. There were some issues with the system running slow with the game and some freezing during the dialogue, but overall though the game was fun and engaging. The writers also did do a good job at capturing the essence of the movie itself as well as incorporating pop culture into the game. As mentioned, if you are a true fan of the movies you will not be disappointed and even though there were a few issues with the game running slow, I stillgive the game 5 stars!
