Back to the Future is a promising start for the five-part series and a treat for fans. While adventure aficionados might hope for harder puzzles and larger spaces to explore, casual players and first-time adventure gamers should have fun reconnecting with familiar characters. Most of all, Telltale deserves credit for showing how its polished storytelling can make this episodic series live up to its namesake.
If you’re a Back to the Future Fan, I am sure Episode 1’s strong sense of the trilogy can easily get you through it. The game is really meant for the nostalgic, as it has plenty of goodies to entertain fans. If you’re not a Back to the Future fan, you may find its puzzles creative, but you won’t have the cloud of fandom to cover up the fact that the puzzles are not very challenging. Back to Future: Episode 1 is the first part of five part series, with its next part due out sometime in February. I hope the next installment is more challenging.
