Back to the Future: The Game 30th Anniversary Edition
Back to the Future: The Game 30th Anniversary Edition is a point-and-click adventure, much in the style of the old Sierra and LucasArts PC titles. The player solves problems by selecting items on the screen to Look, Pick Up, Touch, Move, etc. The game was first released by episode each month for the PlayStation 3 in 2011, then revamped and ported onto the PlayStation 4 in October 2015 with Tom Wilson replacing Kid Beyond to reprise his role as Biff Tannen.
The story takes place six months after the film series. Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown hasn't been seen for a long time, and the bank is liquidating his assets - including selling the inventions in his laboratory. While Marty's father is overseeing the sell of Doc's items and home, the DeLorean time machine suddenly appears outside the laboratory, with no apparent driver. A recording by Doc found inside the car explains that the machine would return to Marty's present day should there be trouble. Deciding to help his friend, as well as understand why the DeLorean still exists, Marty hops inside and activates the time circuits.
Back to the Future: The Game received relatively high reviews, with an average score totaling all 5 episodes of at 75%, praised for its inventive story and fantastic voice acting by talents who sound close to the original actors in the films.
If you're following a walkthrough, then there's nothing difficult about this platinum. Simply do what the guide tells you, and you'll have 100% of the trophies by the end of the game. There is no skill involved, other than figuring out puzzles and solving situations. A few missable trophies along the way, which can easily be acquired if you follow the walkthrough carefully.
With a guide, this platinum will take around 10 hours. Without, maybe 15 or 20.
NOTE: The PlayStation 4 version has a separate trophy list from the PlayStation 3.
Following one of the walkthroughs in our Links page will net you all the trophies as quickly as possible. Of course, this will result in spoiling the story, so it's up to you how you wish to obtain the platinum. Most of the trophies are story-based, though each episode does contain one or two missables.
If you decide to play the game on your own and miss some trophies, you can easily restart each episode from the beginning, or reload a save point.
