“One-point twenty-one jiggawatts!” I may have mentioned it elsewhere on this site, but Back to the Future is one of my all-time favourite movies (all three of them). I must have watched them a hundred times over in the days when my daughter was only a few months old, and ten hours of sleep a night was a thing of the past. The Back to the future movies are a total indulgence of time-travel escapism – paradise. It’s just a shame that the games are so cack! Anyway, Brendan seems to be ‘the man’ when it comes to completing the Back to the Future games …
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Well, Brendan told us, “Had a trainer but had to play and complete levels 2 & 4 as the trainer wouldn’t work on them levels,” so it looks like he cheated 🙂
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final task is complete, the screen switches to the final message that reads, “TO BE CONTINUED … IN BACK TO THE FUTURE PART III.” The end screen is accompanied by David Whittaker’s rendition of the Back to the future theme.
Vinny: Brendan seems to really hate this end, but that’s probably because he had to play through the game and seemed to have a greater expectation of what the ending should be. As for me (the Web Master), I think it’s just about passable and so I am going to score it a 3/10.
FINAL SAY: Terrible, terrible, terrible.
G.E. RATING: 3 / 10
