Excerpt: Two of the most annoying words that can be used when discussing video games are casual and hardcore. It’s not so much the words but the internet bile that they produce. They are also very easy labels to apply to games. Case in point: Home Sweet Home 2: Kitchens is a casual game. Well, it looks like a casual game. Inside, it’s as hardcore as a professional South Korean Starcraft player. The game has you visiting clients, designing their kitchens and then building them.
Conclusion: Telltale Games is selling the entire series as a bundle or individually from their official site. As an experience, especially for fans of the series, Back to the Future: The Game is a must-buy, as it allows them to indulge in Marty's world once more time - and enjoy a chaotic mind-screw of a series finale in Episode 5. For gamers, it's an amusing adventure game with few challenges but plenty of humor and well-acted characters.
Enjoyable first chapter in movie-based episodic series.

Summary: Parents need to know that Back to the Future: The Game (Episode 1) isn't rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) as it's a digital download, but there are some inappropriate themes and language for younger ears. Specifically, there's swearing, and one of your missions has you stealing alcohol from mobsters at an illegal gin establishment (pretending to be a soup kitchen).
