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.

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. I am eagerly awaiting a sequel.

Along the way, you're treated to a terrific soundtrack from biker band Gone Jackals, some bracing chopper-to-chopper combat scenes (imagine Street Fighter II on wheels), and clever deadpan humor. On the whole, Full Throttle is heavier on strategy than action — but if it's action you wanted, you'd be riding a real Harley, wouldn't you?

Full Throttle isn’t the worst, or the best, graphical adventure out there. Lucas Arts has pumped out so many of the blasted things that you can probably find something else from them that you’d rather play, but if you do manage to pick this game up it’s not a total loss. My recommendation is that FT is for those gamers seeking to own every Lucas Arts title ever made or for those looking for a low budget midlife crisis. To all others, consider yourself warned.

Nicht umsonst ist Tim Schäfer einer der Stars im Adventure-Bereich. Mit einem Roadmovie im Comic-Stil ist es ihm wieder gelungen, ein originelles Spiel zu produzieren, welches es in der Form sicher noch nicht gegeben hat und sich alleine daher von der hohen Anzahl der damals erschienen Adventures abhebte. Das Spiel lebt sehr stark von seiner Geschichte, denn die Story ist wirklich extrem spannend und wird noch einmal durch den rasanten Handlungsablauf vorangetrieben.

LucasArts based the world of Full Throttle in a bleak industrialised future around an enigmatic anti-hero, with an original and compelling story. Ben Whatsisname, leader of outlawed biker gang the Polecats, is soon embroiled in a devious executive’s corporate ambitions, and forced to clear his name against a backdrop of murder, betrayal and lots and lots of motorbikes.
