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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
