Back to the Future: The Game review (PS3)
26 December 2011
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.
Conclusion: The series wraps up nicely... or does it? This might also be the swan-song for this style of game from Telltale, and if it is they go out with aplomb and we look forward to what the future holds. More games from this franchise would still be welcome!

Back to the Future The Game: Episode 1: It's About Time
