Like many others of the same age, the original Leisure Suit Larry occupies a weirdly nostalgic space in my hazy recollections of misspent youth. It keeps company with the likes of Snoop Doggy Dog's Doggystyle album (explicit lyrics!), a VHS copy of...

Hot off the heels of a successful kickstarter campaign comes Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded (LSL: R). Larry Laffer originally graced our computers way back in 1987 and, for its time, it was quite controversial, thanks to its rather adult subject matter....

Leisure Suit Larry is one of those games which has attained a certain level of notoriety in the industry. There's little doubt that many of you reading this will be old enough to recall playing this in your bedroom, behind a locked door. With its...

CommentFirst, I honestly tried my best to avoid double entendres, puns, and innuendo throughout this review and for the most part I did. My plan was to play it straight (no pun intended), but it was actually a lot harder than I thought (holy...

A hundred or so 5.25-inch floppy disks, 3.5-inch floppy disks, and CD-ROMs later, the leisure suit was hung-up and the series came to an end – for the most part. We chose to ignore the existence of both Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude and Leisure...

We all club together to pay the likes of Rory McGrath, will.i.am and Nigel Farage to stop inflicting their nonsense on us. Let's start with Replay Games, the creators of Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded. All I need is 14,080 backers. Who's in?

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...

Remakes of beloved video games aren't as common as movie or TV show reboots — especially when it comes to adventure games. But thanks to Kickstarter , fans of Sierra On-Line adventure games from the seminal '80s and '90s can expect quite a few new games...

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.

Reloaded's puzzle design is as breezy as ever, but sexual orientation jokes and unabashed objectification don't play as well in 2013. 1 of 7 Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded View the full image The iconic Lefty's Bar and Hotel has been modernized but...

With studios like Telltale Games working to push forward a new era in adventure game storytelling, Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded feels as dated as his titular outerwear. There's something to be said for the simple joy of strolling through the newly...

The remake is packed with clever dialogue, and the HD artwork looks very nice, but there's not enough new gameplay to hide the fact that the original Leisure Suit Larry game was every bit as shallow as its sexually frustrated protagonist. Mr. Laffer makes a terrific jester, but he's not good for a whole lot more.

However, the thing that I noticed most about Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded was how strange it felt to be playing the title again. We live in a post-Grand Theft Auto universe, and the adolescent stylings of Leisure Suit Larry don't push as many boundaries as they once did.

They managed to breathe life into a series long thought dead and it’s exciting to think what they’ll do with future remakes. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is just like the original, but bigger, longer, harder and the perfect vehicle for Larry’s second coming.

With Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, Replay Games faced a daunting task: pleasing old-school fans while also introducing the raunchy series to new players. The reboot is close enough to the original – warts and all – to entertain the faithful. If you don’t have any nostalgia surrounding Larry and his plight, however, you may be left wondering why anyone bothered digging him up again.

Leisure Suit Larry is a franchise that has managed to churn out nine titles over the past 25 years, but it never really evolved past a vehicle for pornographic punch lines. When The Land of the Lounge Lizards hit the market in 1987, its 8-bit breasts...

There aren’t many 26-year-old games that people would get excited about seeing with updated graphics and new voice acting. Just to put into context, The Secret of Monkey Island is only a not-able-to-rent-a-car-in-America 23-years-old. What game older...

It's still crude, anarchic and a little outdated in its views, but it's often so funny that you forget that it's an update of a title that's over twenty-five years old. It's an imperfect remake of a controversial adventure game, but it's consistently hilarious, full of clever puzzles and proof of how well the genre has stood up over time.
