Back to the Future is Back

Telltale Games has released their next point and click adventure game, Back to the Future: The Game. Only episode one is out right now but the rest are some periodically throughout the year.

Episode one takes place six months after Back to the Future part 3. Doc has been traveling during that time and the bank is selling off his house and stuff. Marty is very upset. Biff is grabbing everything in sight. However, when a time-traveling DeLorean appears, Marty receives a message from Doc, indicating that he’s in need of rescue.  Intent on finding his friend, Marty climbs behind the wheel once again and begins a new adventure.

Unfortunately Telltale couldn’t get Micheal J. Fox to voice Marty but A.J. Locascio is the best choice for the job. He does a perfect Marty. Happily Christopher Lloyd does voice Doc.

I really enjoyed the first part of the game. I haven’t played many point and click adventure games outside of the Kings Quest series. I had quite a few chuckles while playing. There are also many things that fans of the movies while recognize. The game is only a couple hours long but well worth it. I bought this game on Steam for $22 because of the mass Steam sales. I whole heartily recommend this game to all Back to the Future fans.
