How many hours do you get out of back to the future?

I want to know if the game is worth it to buy and how many hours can i expect to get out of it. Is the 5 episode different games in one?

Haven't finished it, but it seems long enough (and it's a lot of fun if you're a Back to the Future fan). It's not really 5 games in one, it's more like 5 chapters in a book. Each are fairly long and have a lot to do. I'd guess about 2.5-3 hours for each depending on your play style and skill.

My internet is slow i have no idea what the game is like since I can't watch any gameplay video. I usually dl all my games at a friend house. if it 3 hours, then it 15 hours for $6 dollars, doesn't seem worth it for me.

To each their own. I got it for free on PSN a few months back, but I totally would have paid $6 for it. But really only because I love the series. If you're just "meh" about the series, then I would probably pass. If you're a big fan, it's a good story and worth the price imo.

15 hours for $6 is a great deal. People complain about everything

It not just that, but I already have plenty of games to play. I haven't even download Shogun 2 and I bought it last winter.

In all fairness he is entitled to his own opinion on entertainment time value.

I won't see a movie for 12 buck cuase it's not worth my time. Why you ask? I'm disabled and to take the hour to get myself ready to leave the house and the 15 minutes to load my self into the car just to go see a movie that Netflix will have on DVD in 5 months just isn't worth it.

Gameplay wise, 15 hours might not mean much, especially compared to hundreds of hours game for $20/game (Bethesda), but story wise it's pretty much Back to the Future 4, which makes it comparably better than the movies.

It took me 12.3 hours all up, with a break-down of

Episode 1 - 2.4
Episode 2 - 1.9
Episode 3 - 2.8
Episode 4 - 2.9
Episode 5 - 2.3

I generally give up on finding the answers to puzzles by myself fairly quickly though, I could've been stuck for a while on a few.

Each episode can be from 2-4 hours from my experience (maybe stretch to 5 if you get stuck on some of the few trickier puzzles). At $6, the dollar-per-hour value is pretty good. I payed about $22 for it at launch and don't regret it at all

But after you finish the game, there is zero replay value, am I right?

I've completed 4 out of the 5 episodes and have 8 hours total, 2 hours per episode roughly. Obviously like everyone said, depending on how fast you go through it or if you take your time to explore, it can take more or less time. Fun game for any BTTF fan.

Well each time a new episode came out i think i played through the released ones again; but i haven't re-played them all since the last one was released though.

Even so, for the current price it's well worth it IMO.

I bought it but isn't episode 5 the last episode or will there be more episode release in the future?
