Joystick (French) (Oct, 1990)
Des couleurs gaies, des décors simples mais bien faits, une animation propre, des personnages du même métal, cependant, un scrolling un peu lent qui énerve. Le maniement est simple mais c'est pas facile d'arriver au bout. La musique est banale mais les bruits sont bien. En résumé, c'est un jeu sympa qui allie l'adresse et la stratégie.
The five sub-games, especially level four's puzzle game, make a change from the mundane repetitive nature of most film licences (ie, Back to the Future I). Although neither are particularly impressive, they do have some relation to the film. My only disappointment is that the game doesn't run at the same pace as the film. However, it goes without saying, buy this and the future is, literally, in your hands (ha, ha)...
BTTF II isn't a total disaster, but you do get the feeling that a lot more could have been made from it.
Atari ST User (Sep, 1990)
The graphics are colourful and well defined, and the sound is good too, but I found the scrolling poor and the gameplay is monotonous. The different styles of gameplay provided initial excitement, but after a few games this faded. I feel that the doesn't have the lasting appeal.
ST Format (Sep, 1990)
The different sub-games sound great in principle, but Back to the Future 2 is a pig to complete and suffers from an incredibly tough first level. The collision detection is well out of order, as is the joystick response - very frustrating. The puzzles provide a well-needed breathing space between action sequences and though the game is not what it could have been, there should be something in it for everybody - if you can just get far enough to reach it!
Power Play (Oct, 1990)
Keines der fünf Teilspiele hätte als eigenständiges Programm Aussichten, große Zuneigung zu ernten. Als leidlich originell zusammengeschnürtes Paket der Marke "aus 5 mach 1" kann dieser Action- und Puzzle-Mix halbwegs gefallen. Grafik sowie Sound sind passabel und die Handlung bringt die Film-Story einigermaßen rüber. Die Mischung zwischen schweren, mäßig spielbaren Reaktionstests und ansatzweite guten, aber zu simplen Tüfteleinlagen ist zu unausgewogen. Back to the Future II ist weder ein "Spiel-zum-Film"-Desaster noch eine sinnvolle Bereicherung der Software-Landschaft.
