Steam Challenge – Back To The Future

1 Comment

This is part of my Steam Challenge Series (the full list is here).

What better time to spin up a Back To The Future game than the Day itself? So on the 21st of October, 2015, I embarked on Telltale Games’ 5-episode adventure.

This is the most fun I’ve had with a Telltale adventure game for a long time. There was a generous hint system, the puzzles were all fairly logical, and the story was engaging and well written. The actor voicing Marty McFly did a really good job of imitating Michael J. Fox, and Doc Brown was everything you’d hope for – not surprising, since Christopher Lloyd himself did the voicework.

The main problem I had with it was the movement. Such terrible, terrible controls and camera angles in open spaces. It didn’t have too great an impact on gameplay, fortunately, but it was a recurring irritation.

Each episode was about 2 hours long, and it felt perfectly paced. If you liked the movies, and nostalgia is a weakness of yours, then I highly recommend this game. I now consider the events of the game to be canon.
