What didn't I like about it? Well the production values fell quite short of the movies especially with all the jokey stuff in there which made it a lot more jokey than the movies. It felt a lot more like a kiddy animated series version of the story rather than the proper sequel it was purported to be. To me much like trixie's singing the game screamed mediocrity to me. I did like the little twists that lead up to the next episode. But the whole thing fell flat for me like a belly flop into a swimming pool.
I agree with what Rich Cobbett from PC Gamer had to say everything he mentioned as a downside is pretty much how I feel about the game.

Most of the problems are down to one simple thing – it’s a cartoon. By that, I don’t mean it uses cartoon style graphics (although it does, and they’re far, far too shiny) but that it runs on cartoon logic and sensibilities. The films are practically a postcard from their main eras, not realistic, but still resonating. Hill Valley circa 1931 is just a soundstage, with no atmosphere, no life, and no sense of threat. The streets are empty, the background wasted on a handful of instantly forgotten jokes, not because Back to the Future is a laugh-a-minute comedy, but because it’s the default adventure writing style.
And like I said earlier it actually made me look less favorably on the BTTF series in general. I mean it pretty much tainted my view on it.
There is also quite literally no replay value as once one has completed it if one plays it again they merely complete it much faster. There's nothing new to discover especially since many of the dialog tree options give you the same reaction either way... or get ignored and you get the same result either way. I'm someone who likes to replay their games over and over and Telltale's BTTF is one rare game where I felt like deleting it after completing it.

It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.
