When deciding on whether or not to buy movies, you have to determine if you'll watch them enough times to get your money's worth. For computer games, replay value is very important (especially since computer games cost much more than VHS movies). However, once in a great while, a gem comes along that beckons you to buy it. Full Throttle should be that gem. Although you'll know what happens on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th time you play it, Full Throttle is so entertaining that you might want to invite friends over and "watch" the game unfold. It's better than most action movies I've seen in a while, and the dialog is intelligent, yet pertinent to the story and its characters. I say "FLOOR IT" and get FullThrottle.
It is incredible to realize that LucasArts released so many quality adventure games and Full Throttle is certainly one of them. The game has great atmosphere and style. Ben is a likable fellow and makes a good - if slightly atypical - adventure hero. Full Throttle may not be a "pure" adventure with its arcade elements and timed sequences but it is fun to play - and that's what really matters most. The age of this game shows a bit (especially in the graphics department) but even so, Full Throttle remains a game worth playing.
Full Throttle n’est peut-être pas le plus célèbre des jeux d’aventure Lucasarts. Pourtant, ce serait une erreur de l’oublier, car il fait partie de ces jeux qui vous plongent dans un univers unique et qui vous marquent pour longtemps. Et ce, que vous appréciiez l’univers des bikers ou non. Ambitieux de par sa réalisation, drôle et captivant, il pèche par sa courte durée de vie… mais reste jouissif du début à la fin. De plus il est aujourd’hui disponible pour une poignée d’euros. Alors qu’attendez-vous ? En selle !
D'une réalisation en tout point impeccable, Full Throttle est un jeu d'aventure drôle, très plaisant et qui décoiffe. On en veut encore !
The trend with LucasArts is to create games that are not chastising for mistakes. Do something ludicrous to put Ben in mortal danger and he is either likely to refuse to co-operate or he'll just brush himself off like Wile E. Coyote after a fall. I kind of agree with this theory of LucasArts, but they have rid themselves of a prime source for filler material: there are no death scenes. Instead, they have opted to stretch the game with a couple of no-brainer, ultra-annoying, less-than-thrilling arcade-action sequences. This is where Full Throttle really falls on it's face.
