  1. An excellent game, full of plot twists and unusual situations that will keep the player engrossed for hours. The gameplay is excellent.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The game has great atmosphere and style. Ben is a likable fellow and makes a good - if slightly atypical - adventure hero.

    It may be a little short, but it's one wild ride while it lasts. [Aug 1995, p.80]

    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.
