Back to the Future - Good, Not Great

Summary: This game is for fans of the Back to the Future franchise only. While I am a fan and I did enjoy this game overall, it has little or no replay value. It offers no challenge and just feels like you are playing a interactive story. The game is made up of 5 chapters and doesn't take long to complete. Possibly worth renting - not worth buying unless you really are a big fan.
Summary: I don't like writing bad reviews - I can normally focus on the positive on even the poorest of games- with this I am struggling. If you didn't know this game is made up of a series of Playstation network games that were popular enough to trigger a retail release (this). I didn't buy the PSN games so I had no idea what to expect really but as the screen shots looked good I pre-ordered and bought this.
Summary: I had been eagerly awaiting the release of this game as I'm a big Back To The Future fan. Unfortunately i'm massively disappointed. The game play is very repetitive. There is very limited freedom and it just feels such a waste of a great oppurtunity to have made a better game. Oh well. If you are a huge fan it will make you smile at the beginning but you will soon get bored.
Conclusion: Poor tie in to a classic franchise, got this game last year from the playstation store, and deleted it half way through. It could have been exellent too with longer development. Can't even recommend it for kids as the puzzles would be too hard. Original story line and exellent voices still can't save this one.even at less than 15 quid . Come on developers stop rushing games and give us what true gamers want, A decent game .
