Back to the Future: The Game - Outatime
1 day ago
Excerpt: "Back to the Future: The Game saa vihdoin päätöksensä ja samalla tasoltaan ailahteleva episodikokoelma arvoisensa päätösosan, jonka nostaisin jopa melkein sarjan parhaimmaksi. Hyvät puzzlet, kiinnostava tarina sekä onnistunut lopetus takaavat pelaajan tyytyväisyyden.
Pros: + Puzzlet pääosin kekseliäitä, + Ei liian lyhyt, + 30-luvun tutuissa ruuduissa ei olla kuin hetki, + Ääninäyttely ja musiikkiraita, + Kiinnostava juoni ja tempo, sekä onnistuneesti tehty loppu
Cons: - Muutama epälooginen puzzle, - 1800-luvun Tannenin ponneton ääninäyttely
Summary: If I were the owner of a beloved franchise of films and wanted to expand that franchise into videogames, there are very few companies whom I would trust to do a license justice. And if comedy is a major component of the formula that makes fans of my properties, the list narrows to just one: Telltale Games.
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.
Excerpt: For those of us who were in grade school during the Reagan years, Back to the Future was a welcome escape that went on to become arguably the best movie series of our neon-clothes-and-big-hair generation. When the trilogy ended, we were crushed and were left wishing there was some way the series could go on.
Back to the Future: The Game Episode 1 (PC) Review
21 June 2011
Conclusion: From the first moments of this episode to the end credits (and thus preview of the next episode), this game seemed to be reaching into my head and strumming the nostalgia strings. If you are a fan of the original series, you can rest assured that this is finally a worthy extension of the franchise into the world of games. I won’t go so far as to say that it would take the place of an additional film, but it is pitch perfect in every way that matters.
Back to the Future: The Game Episode 3 (PC) Review
21 June 2011
Conclusion: The gameplay slid a little bit, this time around, but taken as a whole, I think this game was an improvement over episode 2. The setting was creative and deep, and the new face of Doc Brown allowed for a little bit of dramatic range for the best actor in the cast. The Verdict 9.0 / 10: A little bit story heavy, but with a story this good, it is worth it.
Back to the Future: The Game Episode 2 (PC) Review
21 June 2011
Conclusion: Perhaps it was the fact that some of the novelty had worn off, or perhaps it was the fact that I knew what to expect, but I felt like this episode had a few more bugs and quirks than its predecessor. That said, it remains just as enjoyable and high quality as Episode 1, and does a stellar job whetting my appetite for the followup. 8.8 / 10: The novelty has cooled a bit, but Episode 2 keeps the same fun gameplay and exceptional story.
Excerpt: Back to the Future The Game: Episode 5: Outatime starts off with Marty and the Doc on the outs. While Marty is trying to restore his timeline, the Doc Brown from the odd Citizen Brown offshoot timeline doesn't feel all that great about erasing his entire history. Visually, the game sticks to the style of the rest of the series.
Back to the Future The Game: Episode 4: Double Visions
29 May 2011
Excerpt: Back to the Future The Game: Episode 4: Double Visions keeps the momentum of the past three episodes up as Marty's latest adventure lands him in a correctional facility of an alternate Hill Valley where Emmett Brown has socially engineered the town into something out of an George Orwell novel. Double Visions keeps up the game's unique portrayal of the Back to the Future characters with their slightly stylized proportions that are still easily recognizable from the films.
