Info (Nov, 1987)
It's a quick play if you just play to win, but take your time and inspect everything - the authors are nuts! (And I was surprised to find a scenario from an old risque' Apple text adventure included verbatim). If you like your games funny, Larry is one of the best.

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?).

The One (Feb, 1994)
It seems pretty obvious KIXX will be releasing the sequel some time in the future, so make sure you get that. Larry definitely deserves a meeting, but not in his dated debut form.

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.

Amiga Format (Apr, 1994)
Sadly, Leisure Suit Larry looks and sounds poor (and it's deathly slow-moving), though some will undoubtedly empathize with Larry's problems.

CU Amiga (Mar, 1994)
Like Cruise for a Corpse, some of these brain teasers are time-based which don't exactly complement the crude parser (you often lose valuable seconds trying to get the game to do exactly what you want). But the difference here is that Leisure Suit Larry doesn't have any redeeming features to compensate for the odd frustrating moment, meaning that you're more likely to use the disks as ashtrays rather than load the damn game up again. Do yourself a favour - pass this by.
 
This game is a lot of fun to play and is very humorous. What I really liked in this game is that once you got the right idea and entered the action text, a lot of follow- up actions took place "automatically." For example, when you buy a drink at the bar, you automatically pay for it. You only enter, "BUY BEER", instead of "BUY BEER, GET WALLET, OPEN WALLET, PAY FOR BEER" which you enter in other games. A lot of other action takes place as easily and makes the game flow much better by eliminating tedium. With good graphics, good design, and good fun provided, who needs "good taste"?
