I played through episode one, and I have the entire season.(pre-ordered)
I was sort of taken out of the experience in episode one and haven't been inspired to play episode 2. I never really got into it, something about it was flat, and sort of too conceptional and not organic enough for me. Sure, it had reoccurring themes and ideas used in the movies...But, Marty disappearing again, doc in trouble with gangsters, hardly won me over. Marty disappears, we know how this ends, we've seen this before. I don't even need to play a series that's structured on such ideas, it's bland. I'm sorry.
What was great about TOMI was that it was essentially a Monkey Island game, yet it had fresh new ideas...BTTF, on the other hand, as far as episode one went, did not impress me.
It's good that it references the source material and tries to be a cohesive to the franchise, but I just couldn't merge the two.
The game feels tired to me.
The writing, while maybe from a story stand point, works conception-ally as a BTTF. But the actual game play of the story just didn't work for me and I didn't really feel like I was in a BTTF experience. I wasn't absorbed into the story of the game. I didn't really feel like I was in the universe.
But, congrats on doing a great job TTG in what you've put together, it just doesn't work for me.
I appreciate TTG's efforts and talents but episode one was sort of bizarre, in a bad way for me. It felt too cartoon and that's not the direction I would have taken, even with the current animation style they've used. As a game it works, but as a fan of the movies, I couldn't really get into the story.
But, I am happy for TTG that the game is ultimately still fairly successful and from what I can tell well received.
That's how I feel, does any one have any insights about episode 2 for me?
