Story

It's time to go Back...

Things have been a little quiet in 1986 since the time travelling Doctor Emmett Brown left. And not even his teenage companion, Marty McFly, has heard from him in months. With Doc Brown gone, his estate is swooped upon to be auctioned off by city officials, despite Marty's protests.

Only when a duplicate of the previously destroyed DeLorean time machine mysteriously appears does Marty realise that something has gone horribly wrong. Realising Doc is in danger, it's up to you as Marty to discover which time period he's trapped in and take a perilous trip through the time stream. Great Scott!

Helped by Back to the Future trilogy co-creator Bob Gale, the team behind Back to the Future: The Game has filled this PlayStation 3 title with lots of references that fans of the movies will love. The story is funny, charming and well paced, with some snappy dialogue to make time fly when you play.

Engaging and fun, Back to the Future: The Game is a great continuation of a much loved series, with you as the star. The clock is ticking... will you save Doc in time?

Gameplay

"Think, McFly, think!"

Have a little time to test the ol' grey matter? Like all good adventures, Back to the Future: The Game on PlayStation 3 teases your brain cells, offering puzzles mixed with action, all spiced up with clever dialogue to keep you entertained. You guide the hero of the hour, Marty McFly, around various environments as he attempts to save his friend Doctor Emmett Brown from a grisly fate.

If there's anything which is worth investigating, an icon will appear allowing Marty to interact with it. You can also have a chat with other characters to gather clues and progress the plot, as well as giving you the opportunity to enjoy some of the more humorous lines of speech from a selection of replies and questions.

While the witty dialogue livens up your quest, it's the puzzles that will keep you on your toes. No matter how intricate they may seem, the solutions are always logical, giving you great satisfaction when you smash a lingering brain-teaser. The variety of puzzles is perfectly balanced to keep you interested, with some requiring you to use objects in your inventory while others need you to juggle several actions at once.

If you're stuck, a friendly hint system is in place to offer a helping hand. After all, even Marty needed a little assistance from time to time...
