They used future devices.
Headphones from 21st century game consoles, and the hoverboard.
Does that count?

I've been excited for this episode the most since the game started due to this synopsis and from that perspective it was a let down.

Well I certainly was expecting more time travels and areas. But I believe they were trying to avoid future travels since BTTF Part II is debated on. You know, if Einstein doesn't get to see his 1 min older self in the very first experiment, how come other people see their ownselves where in fact they should have been known as vanished debate...

I'm just annoyed that through five episodes we only got to see 2 time periods (and let's face it, we didn't really get to see any of 1876). Also, they clearly made it look like we'd be visiting the future in that final production video where you could see a concept drawing of a futuristic living room but it turned out it was just an exhibit at the expo.

That did kinda trip me up. But if you count each different 1986, then there are several time lines.

The whole season has been a let down IMHO. Sure the graphics are pretty but it's a bit like dating a hot blonde. Once you get past the surface, it just feels rather empty.

I believe Bob Gale mentioned in the commentary of BTTF2 that they were in fact skiddish to show the future because the only future an audience tends to really accept without question is an "Orwellian Future"
Just like the first film.

Well, they could've showed some period between 1990 and 2011 - and see how much the future of the BTTF Universe is like the future of "our" world.

Setting that up, I actually am happy they did not show the future. I believe Bob Gale mentioned in the commentary of BTTF2 that they were in fact skiddish to show the future because the only future an audience tends to really accept without question is an "Orwellian Future"…which is why the future is actually a big exaggerated parody of the trends in the 1980s…

Travelling into the recent past (from the gamer's perspective) isn't exactly a lot of fun.

I always thought it was because Einstein only travelled 1 minute into the future, allowing the ripple effect to easily catch up with him and erase the future Einstein that would have existed when he arrived.
Because Marty and Jennifer travelled 30 years into the future, the time stream would take a while to catch up to them. Had Marty and Jennifer stayed in the future for long enough, their future selves would have faded from existence.
I thought that Episode 4 would have been the Expo, with Episode 5 being devoted to this supposed 'climactic chase'.
This is how the series should have been devided:
Episode 1: Fine
Episode 2: Fine
Episode 3: Entire Citizen Brown Timeline, cliffhanger being that Marty was stranded because Citizen Brown apparently wasn't coming back. (since his DeLorean's time circuits were faulty, he was late)
Episode 4: The Hill Valley expo and everything in 1931 leading up to it, with the cliffhanger being Marty being stuck in 1931 while Edna drives away in the time machine. They could show Hill Valley fading out in the preview for a furthur cliffhanger.
Episode 5: A climactic chase - 1931-1876 up to the lassooing of Edna's DeLorean. Edna would then floor it, taking them into the future, setting up the remaining parts of the episode. Possibly having the final puzzle as a reasonable length BTTF: The Ride style chase-flying puzzle, potentially featuring puzzles involving locating Edna in various time periods of Hill Valley.
Are you talking about the entire first season or the first episode? If it's the former, you can't have taken time to "smell the flowers", so to speak. If it's the latter, you must have taken a wrong turn somewhere
Don't get me wrong, I have my fair amount of (constructive!) criticism on the season as a whole. But comparing the runtime of a movie with that of a game is a futile effort. They're different mediums. You don't experience a book the same way you would its movie counterpart either.
