  Great for the BTTF fanatics like myself

I would have loved this game to have been a five star hit, but lets be honest it was never going to be. Surprisingly for me it was better than I had expected, the point and click adventure game has always been right up my street, but to be honest it is no broken sword and the puzzles for any hardcore point and click fan are a tad easy. The game really does want you to progress and makes it pretty easy to do so.
Overall it is the best effort to date at any sort of game that follows quite well the films. Its a bit of fun, kills a few hours from time to time and if you've watched the films as many times as I have then this is a nice, other option. FOr the price I think theyve got it just right, I wouldnt pay 30-40 pounds but 15 quid yeah thats well worth it.

  Confusing and Boring!

After seeing a good review in PS3 Magazine i bought this game but after an hour of playing its in the bin! All levels are confusing and you seem to get no where! Also theirs no action and you get no sense of achievement. If you buy this game it will only ruin a good films reputation!

It was really hard to mark this game. The core idea is good and the puzzles are fun but it doesn't help when the basics aren't great. By basics I am referring to the awkward camera angles which makes the character your controlling changes direction without you doing anything and it is a regular occurence. On a positive note the graphics are good and you can see they've made a real effort to make it look like the Back to the Future we remember from the movies.

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 .

to be honest i dident even know this game was out till i was browsing the net 18th may 2012 and apparently it was released in on 27th of april 2010. After acquiring the game and playing it i found it to be one of the best ideas ever brought to the console. the game play is fantastic christipher lloyd as the voice of doc and a cameo voice over from the man himself micheal j fox. make this game totaly addictive. the graphics are fantastic and the puzzles are fun to solve and if there is a puzzle your having trouble with then the game as a built in hints bar you can use. the sounds of the car are exact to the movie. It gets a 5 star review score from me and a whole lotta thumbs up. You wont be dissapointed once you start playing its very hard to put it down. the only glitch it has is the controls are hard to get accurate but once you get the hang of them its all just fun . fun . fun.. i loved every minute of it so make sure its one for your shopping basket before they sell out.
