Let me start out by saying this game is a blast. It is a load of fun, has some great puzzles and great moments and you get to know the character. Having said this, it is also a very short game. Most of the puzzles will not prove too much of a challenge if you've played any other adventure games. I think the first time I played through it tooks ~4 hours with no hints over two days. It was a load of fun though, so I decided that since I knew all the puzzles, I would play it again. It took ~1.5 hours total time to play through the entire game, and this is not skipping the cutscene movies.
At the original retail price of about $40, this game was short to the point of being close to disappointing, but at $10 you will definitely get your money's worth. It's a blast from LucasArts who also makes amazing adventure games such as The Day of the Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, Zac McCracken and the Alien Mindbenders, and Sam and Max Hit the Road (all excellent, buy them all).
In short, pick this game up now if you haven't played it before.

Full Throttle is a point and click figure-it-out mystery game where you play as Ben Throttle, a rough, tough and surprisingly smart leader of the Polecats Biker Gang. While the game is short for those who have played it through, it's a fun cartoony ride with plenty of memorable characters ranging from crazy rich guys to two-wheeled nut jobs, and the voice acting is surprisingly well considering the game is going on it's 20th birthday. You'll hear the raspy squeal of Malcolm Corley and the quiet, sadistic tone of Adrian Ripburger along with one of the BEST soundtracks in a game. All in all, it's well worth the money I paid to play an early windows game this good.

Now to the technical stuff you'll need to know. As you've probably guessed a nearly 20yr old game just might have a problem keeping up with modern computers. You're right. No shock there. Here's what you do...

For starters, the game uses an old video game engine very specific to these point and click games released in the 90's. Go find a video game engine called ScummVM. Install the latest version and fire this badboy up! No worries about viruses and malware, ok?

Next, Insert your Full Throttle cd-rom or mount your .iso and copy ALL files into a folder on your desktop into a new folder called "Full Throttle". Now, go to your C drive and find "Program Files" and cut and paste the "Full Throttle" file right there. Be SURE to keep the "ScummVM" prompt open.

Now, looking at the "ScummVM" prompt, click where it says "Add Game" and in the little window that changes find where it says "RESOURCE' in the C:\full_throttle\. Now simply click the 'choose' button and the game is at least playable!

Finally, a new tab will open.

Those of you looking for a cool adventure game should seriously consider this. Unlike other genres, adventure games don't NEED the latest graphics to prove that they're good. They need plot and puzzles. Unlike most games of its type, Full Throttle doesn't mess around trying to crack crappy jokes, but at the same time it doesn't take itself too seriously. All the characters are totally believeable and you warm to them really well (the good guys, anyway). Its hard to make a game that will make the gamer care. This really nice guy gets murdered in it, and you're actually touched deep down and its quite emotional, as if it were a film.
Another great thing about this game is that you can fight on the road. As a biker, you get to fight other bikers using chains, fists, planks of wood, whatever you can find. You also get to take part in a destruction derby. Add that to the fact that the music is seriously cool. With perhaps the exception of Iron Maiden in Carmageddon 2, this has the best soundtrack ever. You can find the soundtrack on an album by the Gone Jackals called Bone To Pick.
This game has it all. Plot, meaning, puzzles, action and emotion, and fortunately it is cliche-free. Don't bother shelling out on the new Monkey Island games (which are nothing compared to the first two), go buy this now. It may be little short, but it's a classic.

This game is, quite possibly my fifth favorite game (next to the monkey island series, of course!) LucasArts are in my opinion the best adventure game creators on the market. This game is very similar to Monkey Island or Grim Fandango (in fact its made by the same person who created Grim Fandango I believe). I enjoyed playing this game so much, that I was devastated when I lost it. There are days when you can find me rummaging through my basement trying to find that jewel case. But that's not the point. This game has excellent controls (point & click interface and an inventory for all the items that you may find useful along the way. This game is tremendously long the first time through if you do not use any walkthroughs or tips. It can get slightly tiring when you find yourself walking back and forth searching for a person or object that you may have missed before. Even if you do use walkthroughs, the game is a satisfying experience. I have beaten it at least 4 times, and each time it is still as good as the first, mainly because you can still experience the thourough storyline that Full Throttle delivers.
I have not decided whether I should buy this game again, and I think I might wait until Full Throttle 2 comes out to consider it. All in all, a great adventure game with hours of endless fun. Quite an experience.
