Full Throttle

Good grief! This takes me back. I remember when this game came out! At the time everybody went coo, phweep, wow, cor, flip, zowie about it. It was with some trepidation that I loaded one of my old faves, hoping that two years of accelerated sophistication in games didn't kill it for me....

Phew! The loading screen was a bit dicey there. All puke green and migraine magenta. But the game looks fair enough I guess. Let's take it for a spin. Vrrrrroooom? Hey, not bad. Shame there's no gears, but I s'pose it's a bit easier as an automatic transmission jobby.

In its time this was a first class simulation. Fortunately time hasn't diminished its playability (or indeed credibility) in the simulator arena. Basically, if you don't own a copy of this genuine classic, then at just under three quid you can't afford not to have Full Throttle on your shelf.

No FT, no comment.
