    story is great (it should be turned into part IV of the movie imo but that ships long sailed) gameplay not so much...

    I'm a fan of BttF, and was almost thinking of getting this for the PC. Maybe I should wait?

    well technically the animated series takes place right after part III, the game seems to take place after the animated series though

    you sure?i know the game isn't meant to be "canon" but i thought the cartoon series wasn't "canon" either? just saw no reference at all to the cartoon but there are a few to the movies

    Its a good series of games, the only Telltale series I didn't like was Wallace & Gromit.

    I hope they return to doing Strong Bad games.

    It's sad, the last update of anything related to Homestar Runner was 8 months ago.

    Can the Wii really handle this game correctly?

    I know this was not the Wii, but I once tried Sam and Max Season 3 Episode 1 in my iPad. Most of the textures were gone!

    this will be on a retail disc so they should have plenty of space for sound and texts although they prob wont be as good as the pc version.

    Previous Telltale games have had trouble on Wii, but only due to the minuscule file size limit on Wiiware. If this is a retail game, it should have no problems.

    Not to take the Wii out of the spotlight, but what would be nice is if they made this also for the 3DS, and sweetened the deal by including the 3 movies with it. I'd definitely pay $40 for that.

    sam and max season 1 and 2 are retail for wii and while they are very good ports, the wii can't handle it and there is a little delay between clicks

    telltale games are awesome and back to the future is friggin good
    if they can port it over to the wii, it's an extra masterwork for it
    if you've never played a click and point game, telltale will definately change your mind

    the ipad has a broken port
    the android demo of sam and max season 3 i played worked flawlessy[altough very short]

    bttf is rly good
    but nothing beats sam and max
    you don't exactly know the definition: funny if you haven't played it
