Almost a good game...

If you can get your head around the lag that happens excessively and the long load times, there's a interesting story hidden underneath. I'd recommend it to anyone who loved the movies.

Very clunky game play, but a lot of fun!

Okay, negative stuff out of the way first: the game play on this is really clunky, like the title says. Sometimes almost distractingly so. You get the feeling the company that made this really wasn't given enough money to animate everything properly, so they just kind of threw things together quickly under a deadline. Getting to the next chapter isn't the easiest thing nor is saving the game, and sometimes even clicking things doesn't always work very well. :(

Even with all of that, the game is still a lot of fun! Great to hear Christopher Lloyd again, and the actor who plays Marty sounds just like Michael J. Fox. Whoever wrote this must have been quite a fan, because the characters seem right on, and everything feels very much in the spirit of that universe. I sat down with this game intending to give it just an hour of play and then go on with the rest of my day off, and instead spent the next NINE hours with it! I'm sure for the hard core gamers, this is nothing, but for me this is an exceedingly rare event!

So, while the game has a lot of problems, if you're a fan of the movies you should give it a try. I'm happy I did.
