5 of The Best Back To The Future Video Games




To The Future Part II & III, the 1990 video game, is actually better than the original game, Back To The Future (1989). Marty McFly has the year 1955 by his side, but struggles to get back to the year 1985, while trying to get his parents (George and Lorraine) together beforehand. Did I mention that by playing Back To The Future Part II & III, you will live or relive the brutal scenario, where there is no game save feature? There is not a password system either, which forces you to be prepared, completing the entire game, while the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) is on. If you beat Back To The Future Part II & III, you may feel like an overnight legend. 

Most of us saw the Back To The Future film series. Some people walking on this planet still never saw a single Star Wars movie, but can tell you all about the television series, SlamBall, which aired on Spike TV for two seasons (in 2002 and 2003). Back To The Future also has its own physical and virtual pinball machine: Back To The Future: The Pinball (1990) and Back To The Future: The Pinball (2017).


The more recent Back To The Future game series are exceptional, but the older ones (like the 1991 released Back To the Future III for Sega Genesis and the 1993 released Super Back To The Future Part II for Super Famicom), not really. That is why we will provide you with the best Back To The Future video games. Make your voice heard and agree or disagree with this top 5 list via Twitter. Any Back To The Future video games that are not in the top 5 list, did not make the cut. 

5. Back To The Future: Blitz Through Time: 

Other than the repetitive background music and the video game not having much to do with the actual film series, Back To The Future: Blitz Through Time is exceptional. Blitz Through Time, a game similar to Bejeweled Blitz, was even released on Facebook over a decade ago.

4. Universal Studios Theme Parks Adventure (2001): 

Technically, Universal Studios Theme Parks Adventure for GameCube, is not a Back to the Future game, but you can ride in the 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 time machine. The car has to travel at 88 mph (miles per hour) to time travel in the movies, but in this mini-game, you are in a DeLorean time machine. While driving, you have to constantly bump into a DeLorean, stolen by Biff Tannen.

In real life, at Universal Studios, The Simpsons Ride replaced the Back To The Future: The Ride, in 2007. 

3. Back To The Future MSX (1985):

There are nine stages involved and throughout each stage, you have to open windows to various buildings, to find Marty’s parents. Find one and the other parent should meet up, then lead them to dance, which is not a clever ending. 

2. Back To The Future Part II & III (1990):

Back To The Future Part II & III has to be one of may be called the worst Nintendo Entertainment System game ever by some users, but it definitely is not the worst Back To The Future game. Playing this particular game may feel like a rip off of Mario Bros (1983) with neon lights.


1. Back To The Future: The Game:

Back To The Future: The Game was developed to celebrate 30 years of a great movie. Now, we know the movie is outstanding, but these video games are not the first form of valuable memories most users desire.

Only if there was a cheat code to unlock the 10-year-old boy genius, James Isaac Neutron from the animated television series, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, the aliens in the Destroy All Humans series, Sheldon Cooper from the television series, The Big Bang Theory, Flubber from the movie Flubber (1997) and/or Lisa from the movie, Weird Science (1985). 

No. Steve Urkel from the television series Family Matters, does not have to be a cheat code we dream about in a Back To The Future game. 

Instead of Michael J. Fox, A.J. Locascio is the voice actor for Marty. Really, Back To The Future: The Game is the best, out of all of the series.
