Larry on erinomaisen hauska peli, jonka ironinen huumori sai jopa minun rujon muotoni hymyyn. Larry voi juoda, pelata, tutustua epämääräisiin naisiin ja tehdä kaikkea muutakin vänkää.

The quest to lose Larry's virginity, without catching anything unspeakable, is an entertaining one, wholeheartedly sexist, but nonetheless a jolly good romp (can I say that?).

Leisure Suit Larry is presented with superbly animated graphics - by far the best yet from Sierra. To watch Larry dancing in the disco, to see a close-up of his partner's face, or even merely to go for a ride in a cab, is like watching a fully animated cartoon film! There is even one lengthy automated sequence, where you may discover what happens when a dead adventurer types RESTORE! Coupled with catchy music and plenty of sound effects, Leisure Suit Larry is an adventure that really will transport you into a world of fantasy. Wink, Wink! Nudge, nudge!

Atari STJoker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Wie bei allen frühen Sierra-Games erschien der Held als kleines Männchen, das vom Spieler via Joystick oder Cursor-Tasten über den Screen dirigiert wurde. Zu anspruchsvolleren Aktionen forderte man ihn per Tastatur auf, wobei der Parser für seine Zicken ebenso berühmt war wie für seine schlüpfrigen Antworten. Am PC harmonierte die blockige EGA-Grafik besonders schön mit dem elenden Gepiepse des eingebauten Speakers, kurzum, die technische Seite war systemübergreifend bescheiden. Das hat auch Sierra eingesehen und den ersten Teil in einer aufgepeppten VGA-Version mit handgemalter Comic-Grafik und der neuen (Icon-) Steuerungsleiste nochmals aufgelegt. Und weil sie so wunderschön ausfiel, wurde sie auch gleich 1:1 fürs CD ROM und den Amiga umgesetzt, nur die ST-Besitzer müssen weiterhin mit der originalen Präsentation und Steuerung vorlieb nehmen.

Very funny, provided you can see the humor in the sexual situations Larry is thrust into. Some people may be offended.

All this would normally add up to nothing more than a low brow distraction or worse, a Japanese dating sim. The premise, however, is rescued expertly by the wit of Al Lowe who injects so much humor into the world of his loveable loser that you can't help but root for him as you laugh at his latest failure. Larry's failure, that is, not Al's.

In the beginning there was Softporn. And Al Lowe saw it, and it was good… In 1981, Sierra released the game Softporn for the Apple II, one of the first adult adventure games to hit the marketplace for the burgeoning personal computer market and the only non-graphical game released by Sierra. Time featured the game in its first column on computer entertainment, and Sierra went on to sell 25,000 copies of the game. That figure isn’t particularly spectacular until you consider that, according to Al Lowe, there were only 100,000 Apple II computers on the market at the time.

Absolut unumstritten ist dagegen der Erfolg des Digi-Charmeurs, die vier Folgetitel sprechen wohl eine deutliche Sprache. Daher ist der Ur-Larry in seiner Originalversion auch längst vergriffen, aber was macht das schon, wenn unser Lieblings-Lüstling den Weibern nun in tollen 256 VGA-Farben und mit voller Soundkarten-Unterstützung hinterherhechelt? Auch, daß er das jetzt via der neuen Sierra-Einheits-Iconleiste tut, hat auf die wahnwitzige Story keinerlei negativen Einfluß. Im Gegenteil, der kosmetisch runderneuerte Glamour-Clown garantiert nun Spielspaß der modernen Art - seht Euch einfach mal bei der Bewertung an. wie der EGA-Altmeister aus heutiger Sicht im Direktvergleich abgeschnitten hätte.

A game far more controversial that it deserved, this adventure involved Larry Laffer, one of the last wearers of Leisure Suits. He's entering the dating scene...with your help! Puzzles were amusing, and the Benny-Hill caliber gags were well played. Puzzles, artwork, and other elements, however, were just barely into the acceptable range. Be that as it may, Lara "Tomb Raider" Croft has gotten away with antics far more borderline sexist than this, so who am I to point fingers...?

Also, für Jugendliche unter 18 Jahren fällt das Spiel von vornherein flach, aber Leute, die das richtige Alter haben und an der Story gefallen finden, liegen mit LARRY bestimmt richtig. Jedoch müssen sie sieh jedesmal mit der lästigen Fragerei am Anfang herumplagen.

[Budget re-release] Leisure Suit Larry is harmless fun, but not for you if you're elderly, of a weak disposition, a raging feminist or under 18. These budget games usually sell well, and if you like this then you're in for a treat as there are a few more versions to come. Invest your money in the Secret of Monkey Island, instead. It's fun, a lot more challenging, and a beautifully polished game.
