The storyline of the game is the best thing about it. Basically all you do is go around and talk to people. Moving around is very hard to do. Gameplay is very slow. Please save your time and watch paint dry, it would be more fun!
Ok, it's a point-and-click adventure game where death is not a concern, so be aware. The main reason to play the game is because you are a fan of the Back to the Future movies and you want to see Doc and Marty in another adventure. Not a fan of the movies, don't bother. If you hate the old school point and click games don't bother.
As for the story itself, it's decent. It has it's moments. The game can't quite replicate the drama that was inherit in the films, partly because dying is not possible. There are a few nice bits, especially towards the end when Michael J. Fox does a guest voice. Marty's voice is not done by Mr. Fox, but another voice actor who at times does a great job and other times is just too squeaky. Doc is happily voiced by Christopher Lloyd.
So if you are cool about the fact the game is more of an interactive movie then a video game, and you like the series check it out. If you aren't, stay away.
