Full Throttle Remastered Review

The classic adventure game holds up today, but, unlike other Double Fine games, it doesn’t benefit from a remaster.

Full Throttle Remastered is a heavy metal tale of conspiracy and grit starring a biker named Ben.

Developer Double Fine Productions has turned their remaster process into a precision affair at this point.

2009’s The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, a remaster from LucasArts before the studio shut down, provided the blueprint with retouched graphics, a cleaned-up musical score, and in-depth developer commentary.

The changes to Monkey Island offered a drastically different experience, while the overhauls in 2015’s Grim Fandango Remastered showed that game’s impressive artistry in detail.

The remaster’s ability to toggle to an updated, painterly art style with retouched music is appreciated but ultimately extraneous.
