The Future is back and now it’s playable!
Join Doc and Marty McFly in a brand-new Back to the Future adventure in five episodes! Six months after the events of the third Back to the Future movie, the DeLorean Time Machine returns without its driver. What could be behind the strange occurrence? Where is Doc Brown? Now, Marty must go back in time and enlist the aid of a young Doc Brown or else the entire space-time continuum will forever be unraveled!
It’s About Time marks the return of Marty McFly as he gets himself re-acquainted with the 1980’s when the DeLorean suddenly materializes before him. Soon, he must find out why Doc Brown is missing. In Get Tannen, Marty and the 1980’s version of Doc must do all they can to prevent the dastardly crime boss Kid Tannen from wreaking havoc on the McFly family and erasing Marty’s girlfriend from the future. The adventure get crazier as Marty returns to a very different version of the 80’s: First Citizen Brown is the supreme ruler of the world in Citizen Brown. Double Visions has Marty joining forces with First Citizen Brown to create an invention of epic proportions in order to prevent the young Emmet Brown from making the worst mistake in his life. Outatime sees lives changed and mysteries solved and resolved as the young Emmett Brown confronts his destiny while Marty and Doc race through Hill Valley’s past, present, and future!

First of all, let me say this is a pretty good little series. It's really nice that they got the story editor from the original movie series to help develop the story. It really showed, because the story and scenarios are nothing short of spectacular. However, here comes the first major issue - the game is simply not funny. There are so few comedic moments that it really baffledread more me - Sam and Max, also developed by Telltale, was so gut-bustingly hilarious thaht it made me think BTTF would be the same, but alas it doesn't even come close. In any case, the characters look nice and the settings and scenarios are decent, if a bit rehashed. My biggest beef with the game is the gameplay. There are "puzzles" but they are so unchallenging and dull at times that it really disappointed me. Some puzzles consist of just some dialogue options, and others consisted of just doing one action of giving something to someone else, and the game just moves forward so far in the story as if you accomplished something major. I didn't feel that at all. The inventory system is also a bit clunky, requiring you to have to scroll each time you open it, and with no inventory combinations I felt the game really missed something big there. It was so difficult to just test items on other items in the environment because it took forever to open the inventory.
In any case, I close by saying adventure game fans will probably find it a bit lacking but casual gamers should enjoy the great story and visuals.

Once again Telltale produces another great point and click adventure game this time Back to the Future. Starring Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown and Claudia Wells coming back as Jennifer along with Micheal J. Fox , unfortunately not playing Marty (though his voice actor sounds extremely close to Micheal's portrayal). At an estate sale of Doc Brown's old lab/home Marty finds theread more DeLorean outside with a mysterious shoe and a taped message from Doc inside and must find out what happened to Doc Brown.
The game plays like any other point 'n click and the storyline and general feel is reminiscent of the original. Of course having Bob Gale who worked on the original films with Zemeckis certainly helps. If you're a fan of the series or Telltale games in general pick this up.

Delivers on every level. Highly recommended.
I'm up to the third episode and I've enjoyed every second so far. I was (and am) a big fan of the movies, and the fact this picks up where BTTF3 left off it magic. Ignore the reviews griping about the graphics - they do the job just fine, and games should be about FUN, not eye-candy.
