Back to the Future: The Game - Episode 1
Decidedly Back To The Future in every way. A worthy next chapter.
Great visuals, Expert voice acting brings characters to life, Interesting story.
All your favorite characters, same wit as the movies
A very suitable followup to the classic trilogy, with plenty of callbacks; excellent voice acting and score; puzzles are clever without being confusing.
Short even for a Telltale episode, with simple handholding puzzles.
Puzzles offer little challenge, Only takes a few hours to finish.
A bit glitchy
The new characters are a bit bland; Hill Valley is claustrophobically small; some annoying anachronisms; cliffhanger is a bit lame.

It’s hard to deny that Back to the Future games have had a sordid history. When the best game based on the series up until now was a Grand Theft Auto: Vice City mod, it doesn’t speak very well of the efforts that came before it. Still, with...90
