Where to begin, Wel first I like to say I have played Leisure Suit Larry and the follow ups many a times from when it was first released (yes I am that old LOL). Anyway I have liked the game and especially the game interface of how you search and solve certain puzzles (wel sort of like puzzles). I have also played the remake version but I have always like the original one and also the funny but good remarks you get when you would type anything like a sexual refference or even a curse word the game would respond in a quick and funny way that you know that it would be wise not to be rude again. Further more for anyone who likes this sort of games it is one of the best and I recommend it to all you would like a little not to simple and funny game to play when al the action games are just to much at the moment. If I have to give the marks then they would be: Graphics 7 of 10 (considerring the time in which it is made Game play 7.5 of 10 Storyline 6 of 10 Total marks 6.8 of 10
First of all it should be noted that The Leisure Suit Larry series of game is designed to be enjoyed by adults. If you are easily offended by smutty jokes, nudity, sexual references or polyester this game is not for you. To stress this point the copyright protection of the game was a series of trivia questions designed to ensure that the player is an adult. When asked your age if you say that you are too young you will be kicked out of the game. If you say you are over a hundred the game knows you are not. There is a cheats way to bypass this but you are an adult so I don't need to tell you that. Second of all this review specifically refers to Leisure Suit Larry 1 the original version. Leisure Suit Larry was later remade by sierra as a VGA edition that differed from the original by dropping the parser interface for the newer point and click interface. Additionally, and much later Leisure suit Larry was remade again by Al Lowe while at replay games (Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded) But enough about that boring stuff, you want to know about the game. The annoyingly catchy music starts playing in the background and you begin the game standing outside Leftys bar assuming the role of Larry Laffer. A 40 year old virgin on a mission, get laid or die trying. To see exactly what I mean when I say die trying, try walking directly down away from the bar. **BAM!** Hit by a car and dead. The motto of for those who play sierra games is Save early Save often. Restart the game. Go into the bar. Look at everything. Talk to everyone. Repeat for every other scene in the game and soak in the wonderful EGA graphics and the smutty innuendo.
