When this game first came out, I never gave it a blink of an eye or a seconds thought as I was just to darn busy playing other games. The thought of this game peaked my interest a few weeks ago when I was browsing around on Steam and saw they had a 75% sale on TellTale games. This was one of the games that was on sale amongst a handful of other great games but I really wanted to play Back to the Future.
Seeing how today 10/21/2015 is the official Back to the Future day I thought it fitting to give a quick blurb on my thoughts of the game. TellTale did a fantastic job as the games story unfolds over five episodes which is set as a sequel to the original movie trilogy. You of course get to play the iconic characters of the movie lie Marty McFly, and Doc Brown who invented the famous time machine. He has gone back to the 1930’s and been framed for arson which makes for a very interesting story plot. The overall game is TellTales classic third person point and click adventure game all based around the plot of the story. While playing the game you’ll notice that messing with time jacks things up just as it did in the movies. It’s cool being able to play the game and tie things back to the films as It just adds to the great legacy of those wonderful films all of of 80’s children grew up with.
When episode one kicks off we learn that Doc has been gone for months and Marty is having a really hard time dealing with him being gone. We get to see a ton of the story that you don’t get to see from the films which is one of the draw factors for the game in my personal opinion. The game is very cartoonish at times which I don’t mind most of the times. While playing you get to see a drastic change in the story as it bounces all over the place but the game doesn’t lose any of it’s appeal. The voice acting in the game is top notch which helps draw you into the story, characters, and the great world you get to explore in this game.
Over the next couple of weeks I will explore all the episodes and have a review of each one. I’m anxious to play through all the game, meet the characters and see how things end for Marty and Doc.
Until next time
