Summary

Hey Ma! Look what they did to Larry!

The Good

I fell in love with the antics of poor, little ole' Larry in LSL1 and have played every one in the series. We gals have always chuckled in the shadows watching the "one liners" and gags you guys try on us, but Larry takes the cake. That said, I'll cover a little bit about this particular game.

I agree that the graphics and music are better than in any of the previous games. The gameplay aspects overall are also better. But ... but .... now read my major complaint about the game below.

The Bad

They RUINED my Larry! Man was I disappointed when I saw how ugly they made him. Sure, he was always dorky and nerdy, but they drew his head WAY out of proportion. The ~old~ Larry really grew on me and I hated the new look they gave him.

The Bottom Line

A good game overall, if you can get beyond the awkward looking lead character. Bring back the old Larry, I say!
