Even without much news, the game still holds the post of one of the best adventures ever created by LucasArts, and deserves all the adoration it has brought since the 90s. At least IMNSHO! =)
Full Throttle Remastered follows the line of other remasters made by Double Fine on LucasArts games, delivering exactly the same experience as the past, but with an improved look. For those expecting something new, the game's short duration may seem like a missed opportunity. For others, changing anything would be heresy.
If you played the game back then and want to experience some good nostalgia, don't waste your time! It's all in exactly the same place, only more beautiful! You can even switch to the old one on the fly during the gameplay pressing F1. If you haven't played it yet and want to learn more about the history of PC games, this is a great way.

How a remake should look and play.

Great game. If you like the classic Lucasarts games, you'll certainly like this one. The remaster was very well done. The art style and music are fun and good. 7/10

Review from Steam

Absolutely fantastic remaster effort for a pretty good, classic LucasArts graphic adventure.
You don't have much choice when trouble's riding your back so tight it makes the leather squeak. Sometimes you outsmart it, sometimes you outfight it, and sometimes you just have to outrun it... full throttle.
     There is a very slim chance that a player considering picking up this remaster hasn't played it already (hell let's be real- even heard about Full Throttle in general) so I'll save time and effort and jump straight into the evaluation of the quality of the remaster itself. Opinions and sentiments about this little stylish and enjoyable game have been formed eons ago and my weighing in doesn't matter one way or the other.
     While on the outside a short and simplistic adventure game doesn't look like an especially hefty programming and artistic endeavor to refresh, it still provides many of the same challenges and requires equal care, thoughtfulness and attention to detail as more prominent and once cutting-edge games.
Double Fine Productions, which returned to this 1995 classic after 22 years (!) showed enough of them, to consider the Remastered edition a very successful job.
In fact, a smaller playing field is a reality where all mistakes, misjudgments, and artistic tactlessness appear more visible than they would in a more flashy and overloaded with content game.
I'm happy to admit that from the first cutscene to the last one featuring end credits I really did not encounter any that would that remain in my mind or be note-worthy. Even more, in many cases I was shocked how well that task was handled, especially by 2D artists. Their work doesn't look like a remastered and reworked vision from 'some time ago', it comes off naturally cohesive to the point where it's the other way around- Full Throttle in its original presentation (easily accessible via one press of the button, super cool feature!) almost feels like a demake and not source material!
Nostalgia will be a major factor for almost everyone interested in this game, and it's impossible to recreate the same feeling and impression something made on a younger mind so many years ago, but damn they came really close to perfection, where many assets appear indistinguishable in everything besides smoothness and resolution. And as a result, while everpresent, nostalgia for the old look never really took a front seat in my case and I've played through the game without any need to switch to the old look, besides occasionally checking up differences out of pure curiousness.
There are always some objective twists and changes in how things come off and appear in the context of mood in particular combat scenes, conversations, and other encounters within the game, and they are here as well, but few and far between. In almost its entirety this is a very faithful and careful remaster, no more, no less.
     Remastering was needed to be fundamental, and it of course is- everything the from main menu, controls, voice lines, to music, performance, cut scenes, resolution, mouse responsiveness, or aspect ratio has been improved, smoothed out, refreshed, and reworked to be more accessible and enjoyable for even younger and less experienced audiences.
Full Throttle Remastered, outside of occasional inherent 90s adventure games design awkwardness and technological limitations of that time that can't (and shouldn't) be changed, performs flawlessly and is pure joy to experience again and as a result- a solid recommendation for anyone interested in taking up that road again.
     It is as short as it was back in the day (4-5hrs, maybe slightly below 4 with skipping dialogue and previous knowledge), but even with a second playthrough with enabled developer commentary and checking out all design art, the whole experience can be easily wrapped up in a single day.
And I can't say this is the best way to spend a rainy, autumn day, but I am sure there are a lot worse alternatives to make the most of such time.
A fun little adventure and a comfy nostalgia trip, worth checking out even by the slowest minivan drivers, the lowest of lows.
