Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded Review
17 August 2013
Summary: : Leisure Suit Larry was never a masterpiece as such. Al Lowe created a character who wasn’t your typical hero, someone who your average Joe could relate to, in situations that were recognisable (well, some of them at least).
Excerpt: is a name that inspires either praise (if you're a fan of the original Sierra adventure series from the late 80s/early 90s) or active dislike (if you've experienced the bastardized console “re-imaginings” from the past couple years).
Conclusion: Overall, this "reload" is an excellent update, donning a fresh new leisure suit and offering a decent remix of old content to make it interesting while still remaining true to the original.
Summary: I really don’t like Betty White. Unfortunately for me, she seems to be returning to the public eye. I see her in commercials for candy bars. She often appears in cameo appearances in TV shows. Frankly, I don’t see the appeal, unless maybe it is driven by nostalgia for past, possibly better times.
Conclusion: Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded isn’t a total bust. Its self-deprecating humor still elicits plenty of chuckles and some of the gags are gross and/or clever, but the tiresome cycle of saving and reloading just to pay your way from place to place saps away a lot of the joy.
Pros: Quality voice acting
Cons: Crappy, forced economy, Arcane puzzle design, Scarce animations, Dying isn't funny or fun
Excerpt: Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is a remake of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards (released in CGA in 1987 and then in VGA in 1991), which in turn was a remake of the text-only Softporn Adventure (released in 1981).
Excerpt: Get ready for one insane adventure with Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded which is now available for PC. Players can dust off their slacks and return to an updated journey in the 21st century from the team at Replay Games and N-Fusion.
Excerpt: I remember playing this game when I was a kid, back in 1987 and hoping to see some virtual nudity or sex on the PC. It was a challenge that I vowed to break and funny enough, none of this existed in the game but rather, it was one of the funniest games that I ever played.
