Not that bad

CommonSenseMedia has a bit of a discrepancy here- rating the movie 8 and the game 10 when they are virtually the same in terms of content. Swearing is actually much less frequent here, and violence is of no concern. However, it must be said that there is an official ESRB, which is T.

Back To The Future 1-5 (The Bad)

Since CSM does not have the rest of the Series Reviews up I will go ahead and state the bad parts here. 1: There is a drunk cop most of the game (3-5) 2: Edna Strickland plans to burn down (and does at one point) a Speakeasy 3: In (Citizen Brown) Biff Tannen is in the basement when he sees boxes of "Girly Magazines" (When hovering over this it says "Porn") There are cases of Beer, and when Marty is trying to get Biff out of his trance he looks at the magazine and says "Boobies!" and he also sees Cigars and trys to convince Biff to smoke them 4: Young Emmet Brown and Marty McFly steal Alcohol from a Soup Kitchen to power Emmet's Rocket Drill That's all I can think of now. The rest of the game was great. It followed along with the movies perfectly.
