Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to fire up your time circuits. After two months of waiting, the second installment of Telltale Games’ five-part Back to the Future series, “Get Tannen!”, finally hit the web last week.
A point-and-click adventure game in the same vein as Tales of Monkey Island or Sam & Max, the first episode of the series, “It’s About Time”, proved that a decent Back to the Future game was in fact possible to make. Thankfully, “Get Tannen!” proves it wasn’t just a fluke, offering an interesting experience that builds on what Telltale established with the first installment of the series.
As the series can essentially be considered one long game broken up into five smaller parts, not much has changed in terms of gameplay or graphics. So, if you haven’t checked out our review of Episode One, why are you even reading this? In fact, Telltale is still offering the Mac/PC version of the first episode for free on their website, so check that out first and then come see what we have to say about Episode Two, “Get Tannen!”.
Still here? Good. Now let’s move onto what has changed since Episode One.
