Overall, this "reload" is an excellent update, donning a fresh new leisure suit and offering a decent remix of old content to make it interesting while still remaining true to the original. With its excellent cartoon visuals, a beautifully crafted soundtrack, wonderful voiceovers and narration, engaging puzzles and gags everywhere you look, both series veterans and newcomers alike will find it very difficult not to like this latest iteration of Leisure Suit Larry. If it weren’t so damn short I would rate the game even higher, as I had a blast playing it beginning to end. A few minor missteps aside, it’s an excellent game from top to bottom, though the PC/Mac version is slightly overpriced for a game that's finished all too soon (I could make a Larry joke here, but that would be too easy).

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is just like the original, but bigger, longer, harder and the perfect vehicle for Larry’s second coming.

Game Over Online
For the most part, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded works pretty well. Some of the new humor falls flat, like a sequence in the casino buffet where 90% of the comments aren’t funny, but otherwise Reloaded is a fine remake of a fine game. It’s just that… why? Why make a game for the fourth time?

All in all, Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded was an exceptional game to play and is definitely worth the $20 for those who played the originals, the remake, or just want to see why this franchise was so revered back in the day.

Larry Reloaded ist alter Wein in neuen Schläuchen. Es ist mir nach wie vor ein Rätsel, warum sich Entwickler so schwer tun, alte Tugenden mit moderner Bedienung zu kombinieren. Niemandmag heute in einem Adventure ein halbes Dutzend Mausklicks machen, um einen Inventargegenstand mit der Umgebung zu benutzen. Liebhaber des Originals bekommen, was sie erwarten: Den guten alten Larry inklusive schlüpfrigem Humor und toller Sprachausgabein halbwegs moderner Grafik. Dennoch bleibt der Eindruck, dass mit etwas mehr Budget weitaus mehr drin gewesen wäre. Vielleicht ja bei einem möglichen Larry 2: Reloaded. Wer weiß?

A revamping of a game notorious only for its infantile humor back in a time when such a thing was considered cutting-edge may seem like folly, but that is only because, well... it is.

På gott och ont är Larry Reloaded fortfarande samma spel fast i nya kläder. Kläder som visserligen gör sitt till för att höja spelupplevelsen men nog kunde man ha slipat bort de värsta bitarna av en ålderdomlig speldesign när man ändå höll på? Slutresultatet är roligt (då både Lowe och Mandel är väldigt humoristiska män) men jag kan knappast rekommendera det till nybörjare eller oinvigda. Snarare är det ett nytt, vackert och bekvämt alternativ för nostalgiker.

Newcomers may find the gameplay and core concept as chafing as a pair of sweaty polyester slacks, but Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded will likely please the people who backed it on Kickstarter

Leisure Suit Larry hat durch die Wahl seines Themas eine spielhistorische Bedeutung, aber es war nie ein Klassiker vom Schlage eines Monkey Island. Die Neuauflage schlägt sich in Anbetracht ihrer schlecht gealterten Vorlage daher erstaunlich gut, ist aber zu kurz, zu flach und zu schlecht umgesetzt, um auch heute noch Topwertungen einzuheimsen. Das vorausgeschickt, ist Larry: Reloaded nach wie vor beinahe ein Unikat, und zwischen vielen müden Kalauern stecken immer wieder wirklich gute Gags. Auch wie viel Mühe sich die Entwickler gegeben haben, hinter jedem Klick auf noch so unwichtige Objekte mindestens einen dummen Spruch zu verstecken, verdient Anerkennung. Als Kuriosität für den vom Einheitsbrei gelangweilten Adventure-Fan durchaus einen Abstecher wert.

Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded isn’t a total bust. Its self-deprecating humor still elicits plenty of chuckles and some of the gags are gross and/or clever, but the tiresome cycle of saving and reloading just to pay your way from place to place saps away a lot of the joy. Clearly, this series got better as it went. Here’s hoping the later, much-improved adventures of Larry Laffer get the modern update treatment, because it’s wasted on this one.

The world did not need this Leisure Suit Larry game, and it does not need any more.
