Im impressed some people are hailing this game as TTG's moving to the next level as a small gaming company to the big leagues. I believe that is utterly wrong. I am not saying signing a contract with Universal wasn't a smart move. Although Back To the Future is an iconic movie, to the mainstream gamers is a different story. Here are my reasons why it isn't TTG's biggest games.
3. Good and legendary movies hasnt translated into good and legendary games. Examples are Home Alone, Indiana Jones, Top Gun, ET, etc. All this movies are filled with crappy games, and although TTG has a good reputation of making good games, it can't escape the "lets watch and see how this game turns out". Even people will dismiss it because gaming companies make the big mistake of making a movie a game, without adding a new plot.
2. TTG is getting itself known right now to the mainstream media and gamers more with the signing of Universal. But it isn't in the eye of the gamers as is like companies like Blizzard, Activision, Bethesda.
1. TTG' biggest product is not BTTF but its as of now TOMI. I think that can be seen in the profits they have gained and also in the number of gamers it attracted once it was announced. This is how i got to know of TTG's existence and got me interested in their future games.
I have no doubt Back to the Future will be a great game and is one im looking forward to buy. It does have potential of being a bigger game than TOMI, but right now it's either a hit or a miss. But as we all know the consistency of TTG, i am sure this will be a hit.
