  1. 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.
  2. It may be a little short, but it's one wild ride while it lasts. [Aug 1995, p.80]
  3. 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.
  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. An excellent game, full of plot twists and unusual situations that will keep the player engrossed for hours. The gameplay is excellent.
  6. 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.
  7. The game has great atmosphere and style. Ben is a likable fellow and makes a good - if slightly atypical - adventure hero.
  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.

    The first game I played when I got my first PC. It surely put me on a good "gaming path" after. Why? Because its one of the best adventure games. Try it out... Full Review »

    Amazing game, one of the best in the genre's history. A must for fans of Adventure games and a recommendable title for newbies or anyone curios about older Tim Schaffer stuff. Full Review »
