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?
