Back to the Future= awesome movie. (at least that's what everyone says because I didn't watch the movie) 
Since it was such a success, people made video games. How could it go wrong? Well, if you know who made it you can understand because it's the worst video game company ever.
Graphics- 2
For an NES game, the graphics are pretty bad because they are really plain and simple.
The developers failed to realize the NES's full graphical capability.
The objects and backgrounds are plain and need detail. You probably could have done the same graphics on an Atari 2600.
Sound- 1 (0.1 if possible)
The sound effects are simple. It's OK if the sound effects are simple but, the thing that made me rate this so low was the music.
The music just keeps on looping and looping throughout almost the ENTIRE game. At first, you don't mind.
But, then it starts to get annoying and on your nerves, then, it's stuck in your head and then, you go completely nuts.
It wouldn't bother you so much if it was enjoyable, but the music is definitely NOT.
Even worse, it's not the Back to the Future theme!
It's not like developers making games for the NES couldn't compose an 8-bit remix of it, Duck Tales sounded awesome, Metal Gear was great, so why did LJN have to make this bugging theme:
Dun dun dun dun dun dun dunn dun dun dun
Dun dun dun dun dun duunnn

It already sounds horrible!
Addictiveness- 1 AGAIN. Not Surprised.
It is too obvious to say if you already tried the game.
It's not addicting at ALL
"Why?" you ask?
It's not fun. All you do is collect clocks and-
Collect clocks? I will mention that in depth
Anyway, so, you collect clocks while dodging WAY too many obstacles. That's all. It doesn't sound like much fun, does it?
Story- Cannot Answer
I didn't watch the movie so, I'm sorry, but I can't fill this part in.
It must have been a good one.
Depth- 2
There's really not much that the game offers. All you do is collect clocks, which has nothing to do with the movie.
You also have to dodge many obstacles. If you want to know how hard it really is, then check Difficulty.  
Once you clear a certain number of stages that only change color to make it look like they are different stages, you get to play a different stage and take a break from the boring street-running stages.
I've only made it up until Lou's Cafe, then, I keep on losing. I'm sorry, but I cannot finish the game. It's too hard.
Difficulty- 8
The difficulty of this game is outrageous!
You have to be a very hardcore gamer to beat the game without cheating.
As for casual gamers like me, you don't stand a chance!
Marty won't stop walking, there's too many obstacles coming at you at the same time. I will list them here:
-Garbage Cans
-Hula-Hoop Girls
-Coffee Cup Shaped Thingies
-Two men with a big invisible piece of glass

Can you imagine all of that at the same time?
If you're a casual gamer with no experience to hardcore games, then I suggest that you build up some skill if you're going to beat this game.

Getting different controllers won't help you at all, either.

No matter what you use to play, you are guaranteed to die at least five times.
The keyboard, USB controller, turbo controller, even the NES Advantage won't help you much.

And that concludes everything about this game.

aquabludolphin18 : Keep it up, this is a pretty good review. You are right about the music, only good part is when you have to catch the notes. Your also right about the difficulty, it is a very frustrating game(the end... wow). You eventually do other things besides navigate your way through the streets of Hill Valley, but it is mostly streets...  LJN was pretty bad.....
   You seem pretty intelligent for your age so I will just add one bit of advice.... watch the movies. They are among my favorites to this day.

Great Review.
The style looks familiar.
How does a young person like you get a chance to try out the "N.E.S. Advantage"?
It seems a little...Out of place.

Other than that.?
I love the work you did.
Very well put and typed.

Good Luck To All.
I'm done. Stick a fork in me.
