Cover of Back to the Future

When I was a small little tyke, there were several movies I loved. These movies included such classics as Ghostbusters and of course Gremlins, however it also included the greatest time traveling movie ever written: Back to the Future. Not familiar with it? If you haven’t seen Back to the Future, then I really do feel sorry for you, because you are missing out on a major modernish movie classic!

However, the point of this blog post is not to sing the praises of such a glorious film, although it truly does deserve a song of glory! No, the point of this post is to talk about “Back to the Future: The Game“! Obviously, as you can tell by the title, the game is based on the Back to the Future film series. It takes place about 6 months after the events of the third film, and let’s you control Marty McFly in this time traveling jaunt through the chronosphere.

The game is a blast, though in all fairness, may not be appealing to everyone. It’s an inventory based adventure game, meaning if you despised games like Sam & Max or Sierra Games titles like Space Quest, Police Quest or Kings Quest, then chances are you will not appreciate this game. If however, you do like those types of games, then you are definitely in for a treat!

Back to the Future: The Game, is brought to you by TellTale games, and like its previous Sam & Max and Monkey Island titles, it too is episodic, meaning you will get to play once chapter a month, for 5 months. This will allow you to take your time, and not rush through the game. Savor the puzzles and enjoy the unfolding story.

The voice acting in the game is fantastic, especially the guy who does the voice of Marty McFly! He sounds exactly like Michael J. Fox! In fact, he may sound more like Michael J. Fox, than Michael J. Fox!

Also, Christopher Lloyd returns, and uses his voice to reprise his role as Doctor Emmet Brown!

The game is available on both PC and PS3 (Through PSN), so pick your platform of choice, and sit back, and play this marvelous game!
