About This Game

It’s not just the funniest game you’ve ever played……it’s also the most infamous video game of all time!Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards was first released by Sierra On-Line in 1987 and be-came an international phenomenon. The lovable loser Larry Laffer -- a 40-year-old virgin in pursuit of losing his vir….um, finding true love -- and risqué humor were unlike anything anyone had ever seen or played.

Now Larry’s original creator, the world-famous game designer Al Lowe, has teamed up with Sierra Vet-eran Josh Mandel, to bring this amazing, perverted game back to life – updated and expanded in every way imaginable! All we kept from the original game is the plot. EVERYTHING else is fresh and new including:

  • Incredibly lush new high-res graphics! Explore all the seedy sights and sounds of Lost Wages, where fortunes and reputations go to die!
  • A brand new musical score by Grammy-nominated and BAFTA Award-winning composer Austin Wintory! Fresh from completing the musical score to Journey (available for download on the PS3), Austin composed the best music Leisure Suit Larry has ever heard!
  • Everything in the game was rebuilt from the ground up, including all hand-painted backgrounds, characters, and state-of-the-art 2D animation!
  • Thousands of hilarious new lines, gags, jokes, and dialogues, written by Al’s old Sierra partner, Josh Mandel (aka the voice of King Graham from King’s Quest)!
  • New characters, new locations, new puzzles, and a major new love interest for Larry!

What’s more, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is the first major game to be released with
funding by Kick-starter! Over 14,000 fans chipped in to bring Larry back to life!
Will Larry find true love? Will Lost Wages ever be the same? And will YOU want to play
any other come-dy adventure once you’ve played Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded?
There’s only one way to find out!

Larry Reloaded should be a nostalgic journey. But Leisure Suit Larry is even worse aged, as its main character.
I don't remember much about the first time I played Leisure Suit Larry. Step back into the shoes of fat, bald, Virgin Larry and tried in Vegas-ish City of Lost Wages laid first issues a good impression on the eyes and ears.
Playing the game involves trawling round a small number of tedious locations, collecting random objects for obscure purposes. The original version of the game didn’t have many scenes , and you’ll find that true of this remake also.

Many of the puzzles will be old hat to series fans. Searching items you’ve just picked up, returning to areas you’re led to believe that you’re completely done with. Solving puzzles involves clicking on everything in sight and revisiting the same places many times over, until new items arbitrarily appear.

Larry needs money to pay the taxi driver and buy drinks, and the only way to earn is through gambling. Only way to earn money to turn to one of the many slot machines in Lost Wages to boost his spending money for the evening. That you grind for more money by saving your game after wins and reloading after losses. This is a bad system.

Visually, is the game really nice, with beautifully visuals and good animations. Every scene is packed full of colour. The music is goofy and smooth. I like jazz :)

Im a big larry fan and i love the old games. It doesn’t last long and its humour certainly won’t be for everyone. If you are a oldschool larry fan, wait for a sale and maybe give it a try. BUT this modern version cant rescue the old style.

Score: 63 / 100

First thing to appreciate with Leisure Suit Larry (LSL) is that it is a game that originally was created in 1987! The gameplay in this 'Reloaded' version is essentially the same, with updated graphics, interface & full voice/audio support.

Being from an earlier generation, the gameplay can feel basic by modern standards and there is no real direction from a story perspective to guide you either. You only know that you need to guide Larry (the 40yr old virgin) to find love. With limited guidance, the ability to visit any of the locations in any order & a lot of abstract puzzles to solve LSL can leave you scratching your head for long periods.

Simplicity aside, LSL is full of personality. It's a small point-n-click adventure, but each of the 5 main locations is filled with things to distract & amuse you. This is where the real charm of LSL comes through; if you rush through the plot you miss much of what the game has to offer. Achievements have been well utilised too to encourage exploration of 'Lost Wages' . Many are only obtainable by exploring the many these hidden 'side quest' dialog click-points or finding the Easter Eggs around the game world. Some will even need a second play-through.

One of the most enjoyable elements of LSL is the amazing voice acting! The highlight undoubtably being the narrator. Besides having an awesome voice & a good dose of sarcasm, he is ongoingly degrading to Larry with some genuinely funny dialog. I just wanted to click everything just to hear whatever perverted thing the narrator or Larry might say next! The dialog & the entire game on the whole is full of sleezy sexual innuendo, political incorrectness, stereotypical 'one-dimensional' characters & toilet humor. If you don't find these sort of things funny then you probably wont like LSL.

Graphics look good, but the animations are a bit average. Perhaps they are meant to be a bit retro in design (keeping to the original on purpose), but I would have liked to see them more detailed. Also there are a number of audio sections mentioning an 'action' you do that has no animation at all. Would have loved to see (not just hear) these in the Reloaded version. UI is good enough, but take the tutorial! Also, I would have liked to see controllers supported for big screen play in the lounge room & an auto-save function.

As a kid playing LSL back in the day, it aways used to remind me of a naughty, very risqué game I needed to hide from my parents. Now it seems tame, more an ongoing tease filled with a lot of cheap, tasteless one-liners & gags. Despite my change in perspectives, the core essence of the game remains fun & true to the original cult classic.

I find my fond memories renewed on playing through the Reloaded version, all these years on!

Leisure Suit Larry remains a true gem of an adventure game!

This game is hilariously low-brow and jam-packed with childishly adult humor. Its perverted to the point of stupidity, and that is why it is so glorious. It is a point-and-click adventure game and has all the aspects you would expect to find from such a game. You can speedrun what you need to do to beat the game in about 20 minutes, but thats not how you are meant to enjoy this game. There are little quips and perverted asides hidden in hundreds of hotspots throughout the game, each one with about a dozen ways to interact with them all producing different jokes.

As far as the actual adventure game goes, this holds up, the puzzles are pretty simple and nothing requires any extremely nonsensical actions that one would never think of without a walkthrough.

If you are easily offended this game is probably not suited for you. Almost all the humor is sexual and pre-teenish in tone, almost satirically so.

If you like adventure games, and can get in the mood for a childishly low-brow, purposefully offensive experience; then I highly recommend you check this game out.

A really nice remake of Leisure Suit Larry 1, you will have fun playing it, especially if you already know the original. Note that this game is not worth 20 bucks, get it if it is on sale or in a bundle.

If you expect to see some sex in the game ... you will be disappointed, but the humour is definitely adult. You will miss many things if you just zip through the game, don't forget to sniff and lick everything. Death is present in the game, but never final (there is even an achievement to do all deaths!).

The German translation takes many liberties and (the text) is censored in some areas (comedian), so it is way better to enable English text and audio.

What is it?
Remastered point and click Adventure game

The Good:

The remastered edition does an excellent job of staying somewhat faithful to the original game. A few things have been changed and they added a whole new girl to go after extending the game length. The graphics fit the game perfectly and the voice acting and narration is great. If you ever played the original and enjoyed it, you should at least check this game out for the nostalgia factor alone. Never did I think I would be playing a lesiure suit larry game on steam. The humor is hit or miss, however you play the game to see what crazy antics the larry gets himself in.

The achievements are pretty creative for an adventure game and I found it enjoyable trying to get all of them. Their is one that is a huge pain though.

The Bad:
It stays faithful to the original which means all the bad points come with it. Puzzles don't make a whole lot of sense and may require a walkthrough to help you. The biggest flaw is that you have to gamble in order to get money so you can travel and complete the game. This causes you to save/load while gambling over and over again until you have enough funds. Not fun at all.

The one achievement that is a pain requires you to hit a jackpot in the slots.

Conclusion

I bought it just for the nostalgia factor alone and I am not disappointed at all. I wouldn't pay full price though. If you never played a Leisure Suit Larry game, maybe now is a good time to do so so you can see what games were like back then (ignoring the graphical updates of course).

An under-rated update of a classic point-and-click adventure game. Reminds a bit of the Hector series of adventure games from Telltale in its style and type of humour. I think it's clearly an improvement on the original and the first remake, with spoken dialogue throughout and much better graphics. There's loads of hidden extra things you can do. Overall a fun adventure game worth playing.

As a remake this works in the ways it should. Graphically it's charming for the most part, despite a conflict of styles when talking to people close-up, and the soundtrack - bloodless lounge jazz though it may be - is the highlight. It fails in a couple of major ways, though.

Sierra games from the era of the original were in a bit of a transitional stage from text adventures to what we'd think of as a point-and-click nowadays. The remake replicates the awkwardness of this, but goes a stage further by adding to it: you now have three ways to access your various options, be it walking or picking things up. Yes, you actually have to cycle to walking as an action, like the 'good' old days. The purpose of a remake is surely to streamline and remove the clunkiness of this kind of thing, but this seems to be more about recreation rather than improvement.

Another thing adventure games of this era were known for was insta-death on making a mistake. This is gone, you'll always be resurrected at the time before you made a particular mistake, but in its place is a weird reliance on money and gambling. You can literally - and I'm using literally in the correct sense here - get completely stuck and not be able to finish this game without doing a dance of saving and reloading as you play slot machines, as there is no way to move around the map without paying to do so. If you go broke you will tediously have to build your way back up from $10, but nobody does that as they reload when they lose. Broken game mechanics right there.

On top of this... well, it's Leisure Suit Larry. Never as funny or as naughty as it thought it was, just that pub bore who has one joke and a mean streak that becomes more apparent the more you talk to him. Play it for the nostalgia maybe, but then move on.

In the end, yes, I am not delighted as how I expected to be, but I must confess that I’ve had some good laughs. There are elements in the game that truly are riotous, but the final output has to be considered as a missed opportunity. Good news for the fans that this remake doesn’t cost much. And, if you are a sexist by heart and enjoys trying out your bad luck with every female you come across, this is a title that gives you a graphical presentation of it. Full Review.

It should be good. It looks nice, has the crass humor of the original (heck, it *IS* the original but with updated looks) but the game is just completely lacking in so many areas, I can't recommend it at all.

No hotspots to click on (fine, neither did the original) but you just have no idea what is clickable. Try clicking on the bottle on the floor, you get a description of the floor, but the fly on the floor, THAT will get described. You click on items, Larry does not walk across the room, he just scratches himself as the narrator speaks. Even when Larry talks, he just stands around without his mouth moving. There are so many small problems like that, it just spoils the game.

You can't help but think that if just a little more time was added tidying up the whole thing, it could have been good. As it is.... nope.

A remake of the first (and now very old) Leisure Suit Larry game, this point-and-click adventure has a lot of the same kinds of (often terrible) jokes and sexual innuendo. With the objectives of the game being to find love and sex, you'll laugh a lot in the process of finding both as you explore the small town of Lost Wages to help our hero on his quest. The bulk of the achievements can be found playin through the game, and there are a few extra ones that will take a while to hunt down if you're curious.

Good for fans of point-and-click adventure, adult parody, and/or the original series of games. For those who fall into all three categories, this is a definite win.

After playing this game I realized how much I missed old school point&click adventure games. Also I missed Larry Laffer. Yes we grow up, it doesn't sound as dirty as it used to be, but it is still same Larry. I recommend this game for only old school gamers. I have some complaints, but at the end of the game, I had a stupid smile in my face because of all the good memories that I made while playing this game for the first time.

What is good about this game you say? First is graphics. They are really smooth and really funny to set the mood of the game. It is a good feeling to see the old characters in this newly designed looks. It is a really colorful and perverted city. Second is the humor of course. Because it is Larry there are lots of +18 jokes and references but I didn't find them too dirty. They are fun. The sound is also great. Larry has the same voice as Larry 7 and most of the cast fit perfectly (I should say I am a little dissappointed for the change of old narrator, but his one is not bad). Music is classical Jazz and suit the tone. Gameplay is old school, if you are familiar with the old Sierra games, it won't take too much time to get used to it. Other then that it is almost same game. And adding the achievements is a good call I think.

So what do I don't like about it you say? Game is short. I know it is the same game, but I expected a little more. I know it is too much to ask but may be making it more than just the first game could be a better. There are small bugs that bugs you sometimes (like a graphic glitch or froze) but it is extremely rare. Money thing is an issue of course, you have to gamble to pay for taxi and stuff, it is unnecassary and dumb I think. It would be great if they add a cheat or something to make it easier and then joke about it may be? And for new gamers, some of jokes are old. Questionnaire in the begining is totally unnecassary. There are some fun in there but making it a requirement is bad. And I think it is a little expensive for the experience it offers.

In the end it is an old game with a plastic surgery. If you know who Larry is and why he is funny. This is a game for you. If you are not that old, you can try it, but don't take it so serious. And for the developers, please make other games reloaded too..

I backed this game on Kickstarter. Played a few minutes on the Linux standalone version last year. Today tried the Steam Linux version. I only played seven minutes so far.
Pros: Game is similar to the original I played in computer class in high school. Game looks great. Same style and humor.
Con: Steam Linux version is not granting achievements (as of August 14, 2014) for me.

If you liked the original LSL from decades past, this is a good updated trip down memory lane, it is a good game.
If you like to get achievements in your games...
On Windows: Get it.
On Linux: Get the standalone, but that won't help with tracking achievements on Steam, so this is a pass.
On Mac: No comment.

As I try to play only on Linux, except for a few previously purchased games, I cannot recommend this game to friends until the achievements track.

Note seeking help for this issue leads to an old thread with last post early in 2014.

This game is fun as hell. Let me explain why. This is an updated version of the original game, which i had played when i was in high school. The story line is funny as hell, with you having to find love in almost all the wrong spots until you find the right woman. I do remember several of the passwords, such as the Ken sent me password which allowed entrance into the hooker's room above the bar.

I bought this originally because I watched Danny Sexbang, and Ross play this during their PC focused version of Game Grumps, Steam Train. It was the early 90's remake, but obviously this isn't that version (which you can pick up on GOG by the by if you're interested).

It's a short but enjoyable game. There are no dead ends in this game, but you can die, although it's relativly cheap, but funny.

The funniest moments in this game are when you just use certain things on other things. For example, use the zipper icon on ANYTHING you can find. It will draw hilarious lines from the also very funny Narrator.

However there is some negative here and there. For starters, this game loves to let you know that it got Kickstarted, Alot.
Also the humor can be hollow at some points (I'm looking at you Comedian at the Casino, you're not funny.) The game also adds some things that feel kinda unnecesary and pads it out.

Reguardless, if you want a funny remake that knows the best kind of humor is juvenile, then I'd grab it.

Otherwise I would just go play the original, or something else.

I played this mainly for nostalgia purposes, if you didn't play Leisure Suit Larry in the 90's you may find it to be a little dated. I'm not too keen on the Reloaded experience, it seemed to have been a better game when I was a kid, when this was more exclusive, before free internet porn was readily available, this was much more exciting back then. It's a legendary game in that respect, and somewhat of a classic worth experiencing, when put in context of its generation of games, its not a bad point & click game either, 6/10.

Big LSL fan here and Kickstarted the game as well.

The Good - Great soundtrack, some nice background art and the original LSL voice actor

The Bad - Inconsistent animation and production quality, stiff enviornment (first thing you notice is that the Taxi's wheels don't turn) and the fact that they remade this game for the second time, was that neccesary?

The game is littered with badly drawn kickstarter supporters and even the Al Lowe cameo in the end is all about the kickstarter campagin, which completely stains the experience.

The puzzles are ok, nothing really clever and i found that i had to skip a lot of the dialouge as it was not that interesting.

That being said Larry 6 and Larry 7 are great games still (much better than this) so you can go ahead and play those if you haven't already

Recommended purchase price (if you still want to get it) 3-5 $
