I thought the DeLorean explanation was probably the worst part on an otherwise flawless game.
They've respected the mythology perfectly in every other aspect and replicated scenes brilliantly, however I cannot believe that with the wealth of options available to them (in a time traveling movie series no less) the best they came up with was a sudden duplication of vehicles.
I mean for those who say that it would've been a cop out for Doc to have just built a new one in his future, I disagree. Although it would've been out of character for a guy so intent on destroying it in the first place...he did build a TIME TRAVELLING TRAIN...so he clearly has changed his opinions since becoming a family man. In my eyes I can't see anything more of a cop out than simply saying "uh...there's two of them?"
I would've simply gone with the idea that maybe Doc built a new one so he could show mankind his world changing invention the way he originally meant to. Or maybe he wanted to build one for his sons who were going to college in a different time period, so they didn't have to take the train everytime they go time traveling to meet their parents at the weekend in the future (apparently they do a crapload of time hoping now according to Doc in jail).
Or even go as far as to say that Doc wanted to show the kids his first time traveling invention, and so took them to 1885 after the original Time Machine was buried, took it out of the cave and repaired it with every intention of putting it back there in the 70 years it took for Marty to find it in 1955. This would've lead to a great "race against the clock" paradox, because if Doc suddenly lost the car, him and Marty would cease to exist because it needs to go back in that cave for Marty to find and for everything to play out.
The sudden appearance of a second time machine just doesn't work right in my head.
(a lot of rambling there, but still, the rest of the game is flawlessly executed)
