Back To The Future Episode 1 Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Adventure Classic Gaming has posted a new review of It's About Time, the first episode in Telltale Games' Back to the Future episodic adventure series. Based on the classic films, the game is the first of several titless to arrive as part of a deal with NBC Universal. ACC gave the game a score of 3 out of 5.

From the review:

The main story of the game takes place in 1986, some months after the events of the final movie. Marty misses his old friend, Doc, who has settled down at the end of the 19th century. Back in the present, the bank has decided to foreclose on Doc's properties and starts to sell them as repayments for Doc's debts. While Marty tries to stop this sale, he realizes that there is little he can do since Doc appears to have disappeared for good. Suddenly, Marty spots the DeLorean arriving back from the pastówithout Doc, but with a warning that he may be in trouble.

It is easy to be drawn into a new incarnation of an old adventure. While the game's story is brand new, it features a lot of familiar elements from the movies. These range from established characters such as Tannen and Einstein the dog to memorable gags such as fading newspapers and even manure! In fact, the game builds up its narrative in a way that is very similar to the movies.
