Back to the Future: The Game Triple Review
This is heavy: Reviews for Episodes 1 & 2 for PC and Episode 1 for iPad.
02.26.11 - 4:34 PM

Just before Christmas, Telltale Games released a graphic adventure I never in my life thought I'd see - let alone write about for RPGFan. Back to the Future: The Game is an adventure that takes place after the events of Back to the Future Part III in a story to be told over five monthly episodes. So far, Episodes 1 and 2 have been released - depending on your platform of choice - and Stephen Meyerink has reviewed both episodes based on his time with the PC versions.

In addition, last week saw Episode I's release on the iPad, and I've written up a review based on that version. While it's the same game, we each had a slightly different experience because of the different control methods.

As we're both big fans of the movies, do the games live up to our expectations? Only one way to find out.

We've also updated our Back to the Future: The Game gallery for the PC version, and added a new iPad-specific gallery as well. Check out all of this below, and look for reviews of future episodes as they release!
