Full Throttle Remastered

Ben’s story of highway justice holds up well and provides a suitable adventure game experience. It’s not the cream of the crop and players might forget it in time. But in the moment? There’s nothing better than the open road.

As its name implies, Full Throttle Remastered is a remastered version of '90s adventure game Full Throttle, redone by the geniuses at Double Fine to bring their game to more modern audiences.By now, of course, you should know exactly what you're getting...

I've always had a soft spot for Full Throttle. I continue to love it still. Sure, it suffers from some of the genre's fallacies. But it was -and still is- wonderfully sharp-witted, deliciously funny, and tautly plotted. Enough of my yapping, though. Full Throttle has a tank full of fuel and a whole world to show you. Get going. The Polecats are waiting.

It seems like adventure games are returning in full glory, with Day of the Tentacle, Wonder Boy, and other beloved classics making a strong and welcome comeback. And, Full Throttle Remastered is yet another cult classic revving it's way onto modern...

As it stands, Full Throttle Remastered is a perfectly fine way to spend a couple evenings, but all the trappings of a 1995 video game are just under the surface for better or for worse. That’s guaranteed to be a selling point to some people and majorly off-putting to others. For myself? I think I might have enjoyed Full Throttle Remastered even more if I’d played with a guide open the whole time, like a joyride through the nostalgia of other people.

Sometimes a puzzle in Full Throttle Remastered is really clever, deserving a smile of accomplishment occasionally. But some puzzles end up with you just clicking around until you figure it...

Full Throttle is a relic of the time when games first really crossed the 2D/3D tech boundary, when designers devised a new set of rules for making games—with mixed results.

There’s no getting around that Full Throttle is a 22-year-old adventure game and still plays like it. The puzzles are occasionally frustrating. Your character moves at a slow pace, and some of cultural humor is outdated. Still, the quirks of the original game are as attractive today as they were then, and this version does a fine job smoothing out the rough edges, making Full Throttle Remastered a road trip worth taking.

Full Throttle may not have aged as well as its siblings, but it’s still a true gem nonetheless. This is largely thanks to some sharp writing, stellar and unique visuals, fun gameplay, and a kickass soundtrack. The remastered version serves to highlight and even enhance all of this, showcasing the kind of creativity Schafer and company could be capable of when at their best.

Full Throttle Remastered mostly succeeds on two fronts: As a fresh way to revisit an old classic, and as the ideal entry point for players who haven't yet smacked rival bikers with a two-by-four on the Mine Road or figured out the combination to Old Man...

A hallmark of excellence. It may have some flaws, but they are negligible to what is otherwise a supreme title. How we score:  The Destructoid Reviews...

Full Throttle wears its testosterone like the leather jacket it earned from riding with Hell's Angels when it was ten: with gusto, some verve and a kind of unrestrained joy. The original was a point-and-click classic, unsubtle about its affection for...
