    Doh it must of been REALLY bad for LA to cancel it. Oh well, better that then release a sad excuse for a game.

    Sounds like it wasn't up to snuff. Or maybe someone decided that adventure games aren't "in vogue" at the moment...

    I sure hope the new Sam and Max game is still on track, though.

    If only it had done the same to "RTX: Red Rock." But at least it realized the damage it could have done to one of the few non-"Star Wars" possibilities the company really has.

    Since "Psychonauts" also has been a little MIA of late, maybe LucasArts should contract with Tim Schafer to really do a "Full Throttle" sequel justice.

    I'm a LucasArts fan from way back, through thick and thin, and I was really looking forward to this one. But I commend it for making the right decision, however embarrassing and costly. I only hope "Sam & Max," "Armed and Dangerous" and especially "Secret Weapons" turn out great. . .

    Damn, I was really hoping for this game. I loved the first Full Throttle & I was waiting for this sequel. I have been a fan of Lucasarts for many years & I really enjoy their old games.

    I'm glad this got canned. If you liked the original Full Throttle, you would have hated this. The sequel was turning out to be a half-baked action-game with a minimum of adventure content.

    Keep in mind this is what happened to the original Sam & Max sequel. It was primarily going to be an action game, but it got canned and now Lucasarts is working on a bonafide adventure-genre Sam & Max sequel! Hopefully they'll do the same and start on a new Full Throttle sequel that's truer to the original.
