This is heavy Doc!
2 January 2011 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I just finished playing back to the Future: The Game, episode 1 and I loved it. I am an old BTTF fan and adventure game player. I could also see that Telltale Games was very true to the movies as this game takes place 6 months after the last movie. And the story is entertaining as Marty once again has to travel back in time to save Doc, which by the way is voiced by Christopher Lloyd. Marty is voiced by A.J. Locascio and if I didn't know better I'd swear it was Michael J. Fox.

The graphics in this game isn't exactly state of the art, but it is fully playable and it doesn't need a super computer to run. And the voice acting is great.

I may be wrong, but I think this game is a lot more fun if you saw the movies first. So, if you're new to Back to the Future, rent the movies and then buy the game. It's like 20 years since I saw the movies for the first time and this game sure took me back in time. :-)

Easily 8 out of 10.
