We reviewed Full Throttle Remastered

We reviewed Full Throttle Remastered

For our 19,000th news article, we are welcoming another old glory from the past: Full Throttle Remastered. If you're old enough to have played the game or to have read the reviews back in 1995, chances are you don't need to read our verdict to know whether or not you want to buy this new edition. For the others though, check out what we think and the videos. Just don't watch the 40 minutes of footage we have put up if you intend to okay the game yourself.


Despite its age, Full Throttle remains one of the best point and click games ever released. It's only flaw is it's short length, which was pointed out in the reviews back then, but those who know the game by heart - and can complete it in a couple of hours - will be happy to be able to play it again, with added commentary this time. Tim Shafer (project leader), Larry Ahern (lead animator), Casey Ackley (production manager), Stephen Shaw (lead programer), Peter McConnell (compositeur) and Clint Bajakian (lead sound designer) have indeed reunited to give us anecdotes about the game's development. For a discount launch price of $11.99 on Steam ($14.99 being the full price), it would be a shame not to discover Full Throttle if you have never played it.

On the plus side

+ It's Full Throttle
+ The original version in the press of a button
+ It's Full Throttle

On the downside

- Short

Gameplay #1 (PC)

I love Full Throttle!!!

And the remaster seems to have been very good. Because of its short length, it's definitely a title to play multiple times. Perhaps with the old graphics first, then the remastered visuals, and then with added commentary.

PS. Congratulations on your 19,000th news article, Gamersyde staff!
PS 2. You guys are old, like real old. :P

I am old enough (33) to remember how awesome this game is. When point and click was still killing it.

I can't believe i never saw this game! I missed out, It's pretty entertaining and funny. maybe i passed this up many years back, if i could remember. I was definitely a gamer back then. I just never saw this in motion like this.

Perfect, like 'Monkey Island Remake'-perfect. That's 15 bucks well spent.

  • MrWhite
    MrWhite GTA suffers from this sort of thing too, with so called "ultra real" graphics mods that completely destroys the look of the game and turns everything into a hideous blown out mess. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's not perfect, but it's better than 99% of the shite UE4 recreations that people pump out and everyone creams their kecks over as if it should actually be made. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I'll say one thing about it, at least he has an understanding of art style and lighting. (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @alimokrane: Tomb Raide 2 is almost 20 huge levels. I'd say that is a proof of concept, and not a remake. The dude/team would need to get a lot of traction to start doing work that could be done. (7 Hours ago)
