Full Throttle Remastered


The Best Is Now Better by GWhizYMe
I have loved this game since it first came out in 1995. It’s the perfect guy adventure with action, humor and a kick a** soundtrack. It’s the best point and click adventure that LucasArts made. The voice acting is superb, from the late great Roy Conrad as Ben to the always amazing Mark Hamill as the evil Ripberger. Fans of The Simpsons and Futurama might recognize the voices of Tress MacNeill and Maurice LaMarche. I was very excited when I learned about the remastered version of this game and preordered it immediately. I love the new enhancements. The graphics are greatly improved without losing the style and feel of the original. I also love the extras, including the commentary and artwork. I highly recommend this game for everyone that wants a fun time.

A super fun game, I would have paid full price for it but luckily I got it for next to nowt in a sale.

Runs very well indeed on Arch. I do have to set up "Full Screen" in the options every time I fire it up otherwise it plays in a window. There may be a work around but I have not looked for one.
