I've only read two really harsh reviews from Dashing and you... and a couple other bitter sweet reviews. A majority of the responses has been positive. I just hope that our true believer fans that are disappointed with the direction of BttF will stick around for other ventures, as this has been a real experiment for us. Jurassic Park is going to be a major experiment for us as well. It's growing pains in our effort to figure out where adventure games can go in the 21st century. Though there may be missteps and shortcomings, we are proud of the games that come out of it.
Biggest french website about videogames, generates millions of viewers a day. I'm just gonna read the part about the gameplay :
On ne revient pas une fois de plus sur l'inventaire toujours mal pensé, de toutes façons il sert 3 fois dans cet épisode dont le gameplay est réduit à sa plus simple expression, les puzzles étant pratiquement inexistants
It says actual puzzles almost don't exist within the game, and that the inventory is close to useless (while being also non intuitive).
Only thing that saves it is the story. (and let's say somebody doesn't like focusing on a time era where only one guy from the movie is alive, and that can go away pretty fast)
On other forums, there are pretty negative reviews (some unjustified, like only focusing on the looks of the game, but some are legitimate) too.
I'm glad a lot of people enjoyed it, but let's see this as an encouragement, to make things better. Let's not see this as a "so we're cool, people dig our stuff, let's keep everything this way". I think most people are just so happy with a BTTF "continuation". As a game, it has flaws that even you can recognize, if properly exposed.
