Robert Zemeckis said that he would never make a Back to the Future Part IV, but this game was very close to what a fourth movie would have been like.
This game featured voice work by Thomas F. Wilson, replacing the voice work for Biff, as originally done by "Kid Beyond" Andrew Chaikin for the previously released episodic games. Contrary to popular belief, Wilson did not re-voice the other Tannen characters in the game.
If you talk to the squawk box outside the McFly residence in episode three, Marty says, "Everything is perfectly fine now...we're fine....how are you?!" which is a reference to Han Solo's interaction with the Stormtrooper on the radio near the end of the movie Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977).
