Back to the Future: The Game
2 June 2014
Summary: Before garnering critical acclaim and Game of the Year buzz with 'The Walking Dead,' Telltale Games was a company with the reputation of releasing modern day incarnations of such popular properties as 'Monkey Island' and 'Sam & Max.
Excerpt: The story of Marty McFly continues, as Telltale Games picks up where the films left off in Back to the Future: The Game. As with most of their adventure games, Back to the Future was first released as individual episodes, but this disc houses the entire run in one place.
Excerpt: I’m not sure when Back to the Future gained such a cult following. The movies were a hit when they came out in the 80s, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I started hearing people talking about them all the time.

Excerpt: Once again we find ourselves in the shoes of Marty McFly and the troubles of time travel. For starters, his girlfriend Jennifer is acting like a ‘non-conformist’ and Hill Valley has become a gated community led by a mysterious Citizen Brown.
Excerpt: Back to the Future: The Game ’s last episode ‘ Citizen Brown ‘ left a sour taste in our mouths. What looked like a turn towards more gameplay and less exposition in ‘ Get Tannen ‘ had regressed to the dialogue heavy, action lite formula that helped kill the adventure game genre in the first place.
Excerpt: He's seen the past and traveled to a parallel timeline. He's matched wits with Tannens at every turn and even rebelled against an alternate version of his closest friend. Now Marty has to find a way to fix everything once and for all.
