  1. FT is also a perfect example of how music can make half the experience. The Gone Jackals, a biker band, provided much of the music and it’s situated so perfectly that it’s almost as if it was written especially for FT. Add to that a very good cast of voice actors, some very funny lines, and you’ve got a nearly flawless game.
  2. The game has great atmosphere and style. Ben is a likable fellow and makes a good - if slightly atypical - adventure hero.
  3. It may be a little short, but it's one wild ride while it lasts. [Aug 1995, p.80]
  4. For someone who isn't an adventure gamer, this game was absolutely pleasing. I found it thoroughly enjoyable albeit a little quick to end... but on the whole, this game is good.
  5. Although many gamers have criticized this title as being too short, Full Throttle's amusing story and well-developed characters make this shortcoming easy to overlook.
  6. An excellent game, full of plot twists and unusual situations that will keep the player engrossed for hours. The gameplay is excellent.
  7. Although the quality of immersion is excellent, it is somewhat transient, no doubt leaving many feeling short-changed. In the end, though, the intrigue and originality of the story make it a very important adventure game for all fans of the genre.
  8. The graphics, particularly in the cut-scenes, have the unmistakable LucasArts quality that we have come to expect but, unfortunately, the game is let down by the limited amount of interaction and problem solving involved.

    A fantastic adventure game marred only by a disappointingly short length and some annoying combat sequences (was there EVER a LucasArtsA fantastic adventure game marred only by a disappointingly short length and some annoying combat sequences (was there EVER a LucasArts adventure game with GOOD combat sequences?). Still the animation is great, the story is intriguing and the voice acting is top-notch, including the likes of the legendary Mark Hamill. What really makes this game soar is the appeal of the badass main character Ben. It's a shame the planned sequel was cancelled, this could have been a great series à la Monkey Island. Look sharp for at least one hilarious Star Wars reference. Solid metal score from The Gone Jackals (whoever they are). Full Review »
