Overall: what type of person would buy this game???
i'll tell you, ''a loner with no social life who can not explore the world of !&%$@#* in the real world, and must satisfy his needs in a virtual one''. this game is really pathetic, it is limmited, repeatative boring... and on a far more serious topic: demeaning to women, and racist.
if you have any sense at all, you would rather spit on this game than buy it... i sugest you do... Spit on it that is. Gameplay: repeatative and boring sums it all up.... and why would i waste my time writing a large amount about something that is repeatative and boring??? Graphics: visually everything looks plastic... that is from breasts to textures. BMP mapping, quality shaders, reflective textures, nice particle effects, good pixel fill rate, smooth anti aliasing, and hidden pollygons... dont get exited, you wont find any of that here. Sound: larrys voice is annoying, and every woman is made to sound vulnerable and slutty... environments sound just as bad as the music... which, may i say is again BAD. Suggestions: do not release a racist horribal game like this... games like this just encourage the statement... ''GAMES ARE BAD''
i know better... but after playing this, you would be forgiven of thinking so.
Overall: Being a fan of the original Larry Laffer, i was expecting a lot and was .. euuhh well.. It is not bad. I thought, like the original, that it would involve much more research and exploring. But the cut scenes are very funny. It is possible to try to have !&%$@#* with many babes. Overall, i enjoyed it. Gameplay: It is a weird mix of many type of game. You have some exploring to do but to have !&%$@#* with the babes, you often have to dance with them. And to dance, you have to follow a rather repetitive prcess. You have to follow the up up down right right dance step. Graphics: Visually, it is cool to look at. The cut scenes are really funny. And i was surprise that the ladies you meet will take their (and your) clothes off. It is entertaining. Sound: There's a impressive amount of dialog in this game. A big part of the game is to smooth talk the babes. Instead of a choice of response (like in KOTOR), you have to play a little game. And some of the comments are hilarious Suggestions: Less Up up down down Right right and more exploring like the original Larry Leisure suit. Way to much loading screen time.
