Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: It’s difficult to truly classify Magna Cum Laude as an adventure game, because ultimately it is not. While the game does contain some exploration and adventure aspects, the core gameplay boils down to a never-ending series of mini games that become repetitive fairly quickly. Don’t get me wrong, if you don’t get offended easy then LSL is an absolutely hilarious game to play through or even watch someone else play through.
Excerpt: If you had a computer and were playing games about, oh, say ten or fifteen years ago, then you probably know all about Leisure Suit Larry. Leading this hapless middle-aged loser on point and click adventures through the perils of the singles scene was a right of passage for some and a tongue-in-cheek, ribald diversion for others. Now it is time for a new generation and so enter Larry Lovage, Larry Laffer’s nephew and longtime student at Walnut Log Community College.
Excerpt: Just when gaming was getting a little dull and the same old sequels were falling into our hands day after day, Larry thought he’d come back to save the day. Vivendi have resurrected the age-old series of titles that features a wannabe playboy and his attempts to, ahem, “score” with the opposite sex – and with good effect.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: There just isn't anything here that warrants forking out any amount of money. If you're after lewd humour then watch Porky's, Animal House or American Pie . If you want some mild titillation then buy the latest copy of Razzle, or spend some time with the ladies of the internet. But if you want a decent adventure game, there are plenty available - previous Larry titles included - that are much more valid.
Conclusion: leading. The underlying principle of the Larry games remain: meet girls, attempt to impress them, then watch how spectacularly Larry fails to “seal the deal”. In this case “Larry” is actually Larry Lovege, nephew to the original Larry, and the whole process of winning the girls over is done by completing an inane bunch of mini-games that would have been skippable in previous Larry games. Story and plot-wise MCL is as threadbare as most of the other Larry games.
Excerpt: In this game, the player assumes of the role of Larry Lovage, the original Larry’s nephew who is currently in college and trying as hard as he can to get some action. At the beginning of the game, the crew of a hip game show named Swingles arrives on campus to find some contestants in time for Spring Break, and it’s Larry’s job to get on that show so he can get lucky with the finalists. This is where the game begins, if you can really call what happens afterwards a game.
Conclusion: CONCLUSIÓN No podemos considerar este juego como perteneciente a la mítica saga. Es más bien un "party game" para un sólo jugador en el cual simplemente tenemos que ir demostrando nuestra habilidad en sucesivos minijuegos. Esperábamos mucho más de este Larry: Magna Cum Laude y por ello nos ha dejado un sabor de boca un tanto agridulce. Recomendado para los que disfrutan con películas del palo de American Pie .
