Top Critic Average
If I do a top games of 2017 list at the end of the year, I can already tell you that Full Throttle Remastered will be on it. This is point and click adventure gaming done right during the best and brightest days of the genre. Double Fine has done a superb job remastering and re-releasing it; don't miss it.
Since it can take four hours or more to finish Full Throttle Remastered, you're hit with a story that's paced in a manner that feels just right. Even if there are some small roadblocks along the way, there are plenty of detours that'll keep your spirits high as you head into the horizon. In fact, reaching the end of this game's tale is the equivalence of going through the ride of your life.
Full Throttle Remastered is essentially the perfect rework of a classic. Barring a couple of minor issues, LucasArts' old title has been brought up to modern standards by Double Fine, boasting a brand new look that gives a lot of vibrant detail while maintaining the things that earned Full Throttle its reputation in the first place. It's clear that Double Fine put a lot of effort into this project, not least because of how important the game is to Tim Schafer, but it's a great game regardless. Whether you're a seasoned veteran or an adventure game newcomer, if you're looking for a game that provides a fun experience with a well executed story then you should get Full Throttle Remastered.

Whether you're looking to revisit a title from the heyday of the point-and-click adventure or coming to Full Throttle for the first time to see just why gamers of a certain age keep banging on about it, Full Throttle Remastered is the LucasArts adventure that feels most comfortable in the present day. With a focus on characters and story over complex puzzles, it feels like a premonition of the direction adventure games were to take over the next two decades, and it's a pleasure to see it get a new coat of paint and take to the road for one last ride.
Perfectly executed upgrades to both the audio and art bring Full Throttle brilliantly into the 21st century.
Out of Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle, and Full Throttle I think Full Throttle Remastered is my favorite of these classic LucasArts games. Everything here is so good even all these years later whether it be the story, characters, soundtrack or setting. Even in 2017 I think it is one of the best point and click adventure games you can possibly play. Fans of this genre would be doing themselves a disservice if they don't go on this motorcycle ride with Ben.
Full Throttle's strength is found within it's compelling story and colorful characters. A new artistic style and a masterful soundtrack selection by Tim Schafer. Even if it's shorter than most adventures, it definitely left a mark in my gaming career.
