Back to the Future: The Game coming to Wii

Remember in the year 2010, when Telltale said they were not bringing their Back to the Future point-and-click adventure to Wii? Well, they must have fired up their DeLorean and fiddled with temporal events because Back to the Future: The Game will be available on Wii later this month, compiling Telltale’s episodic adventure series with all five episodes on one disc.

Lacking the HD resolution of the PC version, the game plays the same as it did on the PC, but now players will have full control using the Wii remote. Areas can be navigated using the Wii remote’s D-pad or clicking spots on-screen like traditional point and click adventures.

Gameplay revolves around exploring the environment to find clues and solve puzzles using items and interacting with characters using a dialogue tree. For instance, in episode one, Marty tricks the bully Biff into blasting himself into a wall with the electric guitar and amp, leaving Marty free to snatch Doc’s notebook Biff was carrying. Players will be able to revisit familiar locations and meet characters from the movies as Marty discovers what happened to Doc after the events of the third movie.

So, if you’ve missed out before, this is a great opportunity to play the entire Back to the Future: The Game series and not have to deal with downloading each individual episode.

Back to the Future: The Game will be available at retail for the Wii on October 25 for the bargain price of $19.99.

    This game was only 19.99 NEW for the Nintendo Wii at Gamestop. I picked it up 9 days ago, and this is the best title that I've bought new for 20 bucks or less on the Nintendo Wii. If you are a Back to the Future fan, then this is a must own because it isn't just a play through of the original movies. This takes place after Back to the Future III. Good third party games are almost impossible to find on the Nintendo Wii, but this is one of them. -Wrestler's Way

    Bought it and played it on the PC. If you're a big fan of BTTF it's worth it for just that, but otherwise the game is so easy it could be beaten by am 8 year-old. The areas get repetitive as well. TellTale did a munch better job with Monkey Island and the Sam & Max games.
