    Full Throttle Remastered is as good now as Full Throttle was back in 1995, and that’s about as glowing a recommendation as I could possibly give. It may not provide the longest ride ever produced, but with a new coat of paint, a refurbished engine, and some sexy after-market exhausts, this is one retuned and restored beast I unreservedly endorse for one and all.

    Full Throttle Remastered is a fantastic point and click heavy metal adventure that is an essential for fans of the genre.

    Ben is back after 22 years with improved graphics, improved sounds, and a very low price tag. What's there not to like? Not much. Maybe the gameplay on the Mine Road that shows it's age. A must-play for any gamer.

    For me, Full Throttle was one of my least favorite of the LucasArts adventures, being about half the length you’d expect from an adventure and using a setting that I didn’t really care about. So I’m mixed in my feelings here. If you’ve never played the original version of the game, then it’s worthwhile to try out the remastered version — just to see some adventure game history if for no other reason. But if you’ve played Full Throttle before, then the remastered version is more of an iffy proposition. There is some new stuff to see (and hear) but it’s basically just the same game, and you’ll have to decide if that’s worth $15 to you.

    A cinematic, high-octane, but short-lived adventure, lovingly remastered for a new generation.

    A solid remake of a solid, albeit short biker adventure that is primarily focused on storytelling and the characters rather than puzzles.

    Full Throttle hasn’t aged particularly well, and it’s made more unenjoyable by a remaster that actively sucks the life out of the game’s personality.

When the full gameI still remember going to an internet cafe in the mid 90s when the demo for this was first released and being wowed by it. When the full game was released I played through three times. Full Throttle is among the very best adventure games (by which I mean a game that tells a good story and requires problem solving, with little to no action elements) ever made. Playing the remaster on a giant screen with my PS4 is incredible. No one should miss out on the experience of playing this well acted (including Mark Hamill), entertaining game full of endearing characters and stylish animation. Expand

Recently i beat the game on the old DOS machine (Yeah... with ISA sound card) and now i can compare very well. Also classic ART feature in settings provides the same.

    Amazing remastered soundtrack and SFX, great idea for the jukebox to add "hi-fi", "lo-fi" switch. I like to compare old and new sound, this is fantastic. Actually i like it in every remaster.

    It was redrawn everything and looks very nice, i guess i like remaster better now.

    Not have any problem with mechanics and fight on the bikes, think it's became even smoother.

    Very useful feature is able to switch between classic and remastered versions. Request it for every future remaster ever :))

    Great remaster for the great game!

    Good Remaster for a good classic.
    One of the classic point and click games finally gets a remaster for the new operating systems, the gameplay feels the same for better or worse, the graphics are GREATLY improved with an option to change to the original settings.
    The sound has also improved but not as much as the graphics.
    The game now has a starting menu that holds some new graphic arts, achievements are also a nice addition.
    All in all, a good port to new OS, with some new features.

    The good: The dialogue is witty, the music is atmospheric, the original pixel artwork is still amazing (IMHO), the story is engaging and the puzzles are original and their solutions are generally logical (for a LucasArts point-and-click adventure).

    The bad: The new graphical makeover is as charmless as it is pointless - it looks like a bad Flash game. The motorbike combat bits are as awful as they every were. Some puzzles end up being a "Where's Waldo" search for a non-descript item that is indistinguishable from the non-interactive background. The whole thing is also very short and linear; for all of the dialogue choices you get, there's only one path through the game, therefore there's no replay value.

    I can't help but feel that the money used to develop this remaster might have been better put towards a proper (full-priced) sequel, perhaps with the original Full Throttle bundled in and playable in its original form.

    If you've never played Full Throttle before, I would encourage you to give it a go, but do so with an open and forgiving mind, as it hasn't aged particularly well.

    If you've played it before and you've misplaced your rose-tinted glasses, avoid.
