Back to the Future: The Game – Episode I – PC

Today, I played the first episode of the Back to the Future series. What happened was: I started the game, played it for 2h, finished it and closed the game. Easy as that. Very-very short game. I really started to like it. Got stuck only in one spot where I had to test every option to proceed and that was for only 15min or so. It started off really great and I enjoyed the “movie” feeling in it.

Wake up, Marty

The voices were all from the real characters so that felt genuine. I saw the movies long time ago and I couldn’t catch up with some of the characters in the game or the references. So the game achieved one thing – I must watch the movies again. The puzzles weren’t very hard and there was a nice hint system to help you. Visuals were cartoonish, so they can’t be bad. Controlling Marty didn’t felt really good, maybe they’ll fix it in the next episode. You had two choices to control him; mouse or arrow keys, and they both felt a little bit uncontrollable. It felt like a fun game to play when you want to relax, but when you’re expecting a long and meaningful first episode you might disappoint. But I must say, the story wasn’t that bad, it just wasn’t deep.
