Although some of the sequences don't require much from you - just sit back and watch the story develop by itself - overall there is plenty of challenge and involvement. Leisure Suit Larry II is an entertaining and very funny game and well up to Sierra's excellent standards. If you have a double-sided drive, don't hesitate to buy this latest piece of fun and nonsense.

Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Larry II is a light hearted romp of an adventure, that tells a humorous story in a linear way. You get it right or you get it wrong, in a predetermined sequence. But more importantly, it is a superb piece of all-round entertainment, particularly, but not exclusively, suited to adventure players.

You can't help laughing at Larry's antics as he searches for the love of his life. He manages to extricate himself from embarrassing situations with such panache that he creates a hilarious game. Great fun.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Highly amusing and enjoyable to play, with a slight drop in the interest level around a third of the way through. Things pick up once you've hit the high seas, however.

Zwei der neuen Sierra-Adventures liegen jetzt auch für den ST vor; die Amiga-Umsetzungen folgen in Kürze. Grafisch und spielerisch sind sie mit den MS-DOS EGA-Versiorien identisch, die wir in POWER PLAY 3/89 testeten. Beide Abenteuerspiele machen Spaß, der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist niedrig.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Wie bei so vielen Fortsetzungen war auch hier ein gewisser Abnutzungseffekt gerade zu den unlösbar schweren Abenteuern zählt. Dafür gab es nun bessere Grafik, besseren Sound (AdLib und Roland werden jetzt unterstützt) und eine bessere (Maus-) Steuerung. Außerdem tauchten erstmalig filmartige Zwischensequenzen auf, bei denen man zwar zuschauen, aber nicht eingreifen kann. Den Preis für soviel Fortschritt müssen die Amiga- und ST-Larrys zahlen, bei denen diese „Cutscenes“ ziemlich langsam ablaufen.
