Full Throttle Remastered for PS4, PC and etc. is a remaster of the 1995 LucasArts classic point-and-click adventure game. The refreshed version was created by Double Fine, a studio consisting of many developers responsible for the original game.
The game takes place in a rather grim future of 2040, where all classic vehicles were replaced by machines that use engines based on antigravity. We begin our story in a desertic part of the United States, near the highway number 9. We play as a motorcycle gang leader Ben who is wrongfuly accused of murdering Malcolm Corley, the owner of the last company that produces traditional motorbikes.
Our job is to clear Ben’s name and find the actual person responsible for that murder.
Just like the original, Full Throttle Remastered for PS4, PC and etc. is in many ways a traditional point-and-click adventure game. During our adventures we will explore various locations, talk with NPCs, gather items, and solve riddles and puzzles. The game also has some arcade elements, like the highway motorcycle races during which we will have to fight with our opponents by kicking them or hitting with a chain. Unlike in other LucasArts games, the protagonist of Full Throttle can die. His death is usually caused by the player not being fast enough during the arcade sequences.
The biggest improvements we will find in Full Throttle Remastered for PS4, PC and etc. are of course the game’s visuals. The authors created new high resolutions, and each animation frame was redrawn by hand. Additionally, the overall audio quality was also improved.
Double Fine included some additional content in the game, like the gallery of the game’s concept art or the developer’s audio commentary during which they tell interesting anecdotes about the game’s locations.
