Back To The Future

That's the power of love, da na na na. Yeah, get down Huey, get down Marty, get down Shep. They say you can't keep a good game down. With this game I had trouble keeping my lunch down. Don't get me wrong, it's a good idea - just badly implemented. You take the role of Marty McFly, who has gone back in time and met his mummy and daddy and mummikins has fallen in luv with him. He's got to get them back together with the help of Dr Emmett Brown and with the hindrance of Biff the bully.

But it's not all bad. There are two very good digitised photographs and it's now very cheap!

Overall Summary

Budget re-release of former Activision 'big-licensed' drivel. Good for five or six minutes.
