Bloomin' hell. The polyester prat is back, that nerd of nerds is here once again. Lounge lizards everywhere rejoice and prepare for another exciting, or even embarrassing, adventure and a gender-bending romp through the sleazy underside of the underworld.

Der langen Rede kurzer Sinn: Wer auf pompöse Grafikadventures mit relativ simplen Rätseln, aber ausgesprochen witzigen Gags steht, der kommt am neuen Larry nicht vorbei! Besonders, wenn er eine Festplatte besitzt...
Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Trotz des revolutionären Parallel- Konzepts hat sich am Gameplay selbst nicht sooo schrecklich viel geändert, vor allem die Rätsel sind nach wie vor recht einsteigerfreundlich. Dafür bekommt man es nun von Anfang an mit der neuen Maus/Icon-Steuerung zu tun, zudem markiert Larry V in Sachen Präsentation eindeutig den Höhepunkt der Reihe. Die Comic-Grafik ist witziger gezeichnet und animiert denn je, und die Soundbegleitung wartet mit einer Fülle von Musikstücken der unterschiedlichsten Stilrichtungen auf. Der Luxus hat natürlich seinen Preis, will sagen, man sollte zumindest einen 286er (am besten mit VGA-Karte) oder einen Amiga mit 1MB (und möglichst auch einer Festplatte) besitzen.

Much as I enjoyed LSL 5, it's really less of a game than a semi-interactive comic book, There are very long sections that involve no interaction at all; they're mostly expository and while they are funny and entertaining, they should have been accelerated considerably. The one thing I love most about the game is the fact that it doesn't take itself (or Sierra, for that matter) seriously. Its primary purpose is to give the player a few good yuks and it succeeds splendidly at it. The writers aren't afraid to use every cheap, vulgar joke they can work in and I admire them for it. (By the way, since this is very definitely an adult game and if you're worried about your kids getting into it, there's optional password protection.) Dig out your gold chains, run your polyester disco suit through the washer, and join Larry and Patti for some laughs. It's worth the effort.
Det nya pek- & klickgränssnittet är mycket bra och ett verkligt lyft – i Sierras fall var tolkarna tidigare urusla och det var en plåga att försöka hitta rätt ord. Och grafiken är faktiskt ganska kul, med sina "cartoon"-liknande karikatyrer av figurerna i spelet. Men för alla er som inte äger en snabb hårddisk till era 500:or – tänk efter en extra gång innan ni köper Larry 5.
