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!

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.

[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.
