I know some of you here in the Swamp were waiting for this one, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but as of today Full Throttle : Hell on Wheels was officially cancelled.

I thought the game looked decent, myself, so I'm a little bummed out.

Er.... games nothing like the movie. Your a biker guy. And you kick other people off bikes. And send bunnies into minefields.... the Good days.... :(

But, I'm really sad to see they cancelled it. Full Throtle was my favorite game at one time. :(

They were just making lots of mistakes with it. It's probably best it got canned. :(

Man! I was really lookin' forward to this game! It shouldn't be canned now! The wait was just getting exciting, and now they say it's a dead project! :mad: Someone should make an F.T. mod for JA and replace the saber with a crow bar when the game comes out!

hmmmmm a F.T mod for JA.....Naw, just doesnt seem right AT ALL!



Besides, F.T wasent about combat, it was about adventure and lots of gritty humor :rolleyes:

That would be the backbone behind a mod like that is what I'm saying. Replacing combat with adventure and the gritty humor.

I am and was obssesed with Full Throttle thats were i got me name. Father Torque. O, and i have the game right here so il give you the full description.

"Round these parts there's a legend...about the meanest, toughest, hard-ridin'est, gravel'chewing, punk-stomping, biker of them all- Ben Whatsisname, There was the time Adrian Ripburger-a chablis-swilling,limo-riding yuppie executive-tried to take over Corley Motors, makers of the last real domestically produced motorcycle. He thought he could frame Ben for murder in the proscess. Ben had his bike trashed, the cops on his trail, his gang in jail and his picture on Corvilles most most wanted TV show. But that didnt stop Ben- and it shouldn't stop you either, as you help Ben survive one of his gnarlier adventures. Slug your way through rival motorcycle gangs like the Rottwheelers, Vultures and Cavefish. Leap yawning crevasesand trade snappy repartree with sleazy semi drivers.. Hop on your hog, pop a wheelie, and leave your enemies with dust in thier eyes and bugs btween their teeth. But bike-ridin and brawling werent enough to make Ben a great biker- Ben has brains as well. You'll occasionally find a situation where brute force just wont cut it. Be patient, practice deceit and larceny-excuse me, negotiate and ummn borrowing stuff-and you'll find your way out of the toughest spot. And if all else fails, kick and punch the #%!! out of it.

There you have it. And im very sad that the game has been cancelled. I was planning on being the first one to buy it:) . Maybe someone will put together a petition to re-continue the sequel to one of the greatest games ive ever played:) .

I never really was a fan of Full Throttle... *runs away and hides from the angry mob*

Without the late Roy Conrad as Ben, it would have sucked anyway. It's probably better this way.

Would you rather have a half assed game that dissapoints and undoes its good work? I wouldn't, it's better this way.

Im still bimmed it got cancled. It was a pretty good adventure game. Plue PC Gamer did a preview on it for E3 and it looked fantastic.


Guess games never really turn out they way they are supposed to sometimes :(

i have to say i haven'tbeen following it, but the few screenshots i saw looked very PS1, and the additional emphasis on combat didn't sound right... might have been bast this way.

I'll be happy as long as Sam n Max 2 is on the way!

I wonder if there will be an OB1/Outcast style "replacement" announcement almost immediately?

Shame on you! Graphics dont make a complete game! Just look at Unreal 2, it has superb graphics, but very dull gameplay. If FT 2 was cancled for it's graphics, well, that's just wrong in my opinion. Especially since it's primarrily an Adventure game.

I think one of the many reasons the game has been canceled is because the original actor that did the voice for Ben died years ago (I think). And the original staff that did all/most of the comedic work at LucasArts (MonkeyIsland, DayOfTentacle, GrimFandango, FullThrottle, etc) has left the company.

So Simon (el presidente of lucasarts) decided to can the project because it lacked quality. Which I'm happy to hear because I dont want to see that great game ruined by a less then adequate sequel.
