The videogame industry is sadly famous for its wealth of truly horrible movie tie-ins. With limited development time and more often than not, an eye on the quick buck at the very heart of the “creative process”, the term ‘movie tie-in’ has become somewhat synonymous with poor quality. As a massive fan of the Back to the Future trilogy (who isn’t?), to say that I was a little concerned at the prospect of returning to the series that I love so much in videogame formwould be something of an understatement. Well, thanks to the storytelling talents of the folks at Telltale Games, my fears were largely abated. However, before I can go giving this anything like a glowing recommendation, one very important question has to be asked – is back to the Future: The Game really a game?
