Play as Paul Senior, Paulie, Mikey and Vinnie and experience the pressure and drama of the Discovery Channel hit TV series as you build four custom choppers for a motorcycle competition. Deal with the conflicts and problems that arise when you compete in family battles, races and other biker challenges in order to earn your parts and respect from Paul Senior. Everything culminates to a final showdown - are your custom creations up to the challenge? 12 theme bikes from the show - including the Fire Bike, Liberty Bike, Future Bike plus new bikes. Three times the number of parts in the 1st game for maximum customization. Parts now affect your speed, handling and acceleration, etc. Paint, chrome, powder coat, & add decals to your chopper. Earn better parts and respect from Paul Senior by competing in family battles, races and challenges. Variety of themed challenges and gameplay elements will test your chopper skills: race, perform stunts including sliding under a semi-trailer, experience police chases, and more. [Activision Value]

If I spend a ton of time building a bitchin' bike, I expect to have a blast riding it. It is more fun to tweak your chopper than it is to ride it, and that is a flaw in the design's execution. The game needs to be at 50/50, and right now it is about 80/20 towards designing rather than driving.

The riding mechanics aren't terrible, but Full Throttle's open-ended, GTA-wannabe world just doesn't work. [Mar 2006, p.86]

All of the races and objectives are fun to explore but leave no lasting impression. They don't compel you to want to replay them for any reason. Think of this game as nothing more than a series of half-hearted mini-games involving the Teutul family, who by the sounds of things, don't seem to be particularly interested in this game either.
