Full Throttle II Announced

This LucasArts Entertainment Company Press Release announces plans for a console and PC-based follow-up to Full Throttle, featuring the exploits of outlaw biker Ben. Here is what the release has to say about the game, which although not noted in the press release, will be called Full Throttle II, as noted on the LucasArts E3 2002 Page:

A CLASSIC RETURNS -- LUCASARTS REVS UP FULL THROTTLEŽ FOR LONG AWAITED SEQUEL

Acclaimed Classic Adventure Roars Back to Action on Next Generation Consoles and PC in 2003


SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- May 21, 2002 -- Full Throttle, one of the most loved classic adventures from LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC, returns in a long awaited action packed sequel for next generation consoles and PC in 2003. The follow up to the award winning game from 1995 will once again feature one of LucasArts' most popular and enduring characters, the swaggering outlaw biker Ben, leader of a renegade motorcycle gang called the Polecats. The free wheeling action-adventure will offer a humorous original story, furious bare knuckle fighting, and the thrill of high speed biking.

"Full Throttle is one of LucasArts' greatest and most beloved original games," says Simon Jeffery, president of LucasArts. "We can't think of a better brand or character to lead LucasArts' charge into a new era of original game development. Ben so perfectly symbolizes our legacy and yet has just the right mix of attitude and edge to appeal to a new generation of game players."

I don't think that Jedi Knight 2 is a good exsample of a Lucasart games sence it was developed by Raven and not Lucasarts. Probley why it is the best game that they have published sence the orginal Jedi Knight.

Notice that Full Throttle 2 is known as "action-adventure", and not as "adventure-action" (if that's a term like that, anyway).

Somehow I have a BAD feeling saying Lucas is going to bring us a game style Interstate 76/86.
No, god, please don't.

Full Throttle was a good game and I'm happy that a sequel is on the way.
However, a couple of LucasArts games spring to mind that are more worthy of a sequel: Sam & Max Hit The Road, and Day of the Tentacles.

"GIVE US PROPER FUCKING ADVENTURES, LUCASARTS. Who the fuck likes 'action adventures'? Shitty action, no adventure"

STOP WHINING! If I caught you mouthing off like that in real life, I would be sure to smack the living daylights out of you with a cricket bat.

Im not trumpeting this game before it comes out, but as far as I remember, Full throttle was pretty action packed, and still one of the best adventure games I can remember.

Damn. Reading about this game makes me want to install a bunch of oldies again. Never got to try the incredible journey, or whatever it was called.

heh. sorry about that spout insulting you. i was way off base, and i was in one of those silly moods earlier on. obviously that was pretty irresponsible, but hey, its the internet. I can probably get away with it. [im being ironical]

Seriously though, I know I was wrong and as soon as I posted that I knew I had blasted you for nothing.

... I pray to god, I dance for the devil, I'd sacrifice my pets, for LucasArts giving me back my MouseControl. Every Interface before the DAMN keyboard-controlled 3d-enviroment was better than that. Why not use the 3d-characters and the rendered backgrounds (both looked very good), but make the character control by mouse, like the good old days. Keybord control gives no game-experience advantage at all, more the opposite.

"action-packed"?

NO
NOO
NOOO

GIVE US PROPER FUCKING ADVENTURES, LUCASARTS. Who the fuck likes 'action adventures'? Shitty action, no adventure. Stupidest genre ever created. If the next Monkey Island just involves running around clicking the mouse a lot to hit a bunch of pirates, i'm gonna stop playing LucasArts stuff for good...

Xombie what the hell are you talking about? Ive NEVER seen a poll that says 75% of the JK players like the new patch. Why are you making stuff up. And if your not, post a link.

Dont be an ass.

Oh, Sweet man, Sweet.

This is one of the few games that definitely _deserved_ a sequel. The original was one of the best games I have ever played, and it's only real flaw was that it was too damn short. Looks like they're going to make up for it Oh, remember dropping cars on dogs? Mmmm.

At last - a sequel that's worth making (at least it's not another damn Star Wars one). Of course, what would really make my day is if they'd bring Manny back... Actually, that would probably make my decade

#30, The DOS days were the best for gaming. Unfortunately with all the pretty graphics engines and so forth, companies tend to forget about content.

The dos days conisted of quality games like Full Throttle, and many of the Sierra based adventure games.. You know what im talking about

ahhh the memories...
