  • Summary: Larry Cum Laude! College is tough for Larry - between classes, fraternities, and odd jobs there's hardly time for parties and chasing girls. So when a dating show comes to campus, Larry knows that getting on TV is his best chance ever to lay more than groundwork. Can Larry get on TV, get the girl, and not flunk out of college? It's all up to you in Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude! Magna Cum Laude brings back humor from the most respected funny brand on PC - Leisure Suit Larry. Updated for the 21st century with 3D graphics, engaging conversations, and a fully realized college campus, Larry is back to give gamers some loving. Coming to PC and consoles.

  1. This is a fun little ride of a game, with some definite adult content, but let’s be honest, there are only about four places where it actually crosses the line into an “R” rating. Otherwise it’s basically a teen-sploitation film, as the saying goes. Relax, pick up that bong, and enjoy the ride.
  2. A great addition to a classic series and should satisfy the twisted pervert inside all of us ... well, inside of me, anyway.
  3. Wear your morals round your ankles and keep your mind in the gutter, otherwise this crude comedy is shooting blank. [GamesMaster]
  4. It has to be said though – as a game, LSL is pretty thin. The mini-games are weak and become pretty repetitive. Happily though, the bawdy comedy that plays out while you’re going through the motions, especially during the conversations, do make it all worthwhile.

    It's amusing for about 30 minutes, then you realize you're doing the same tedious tasks repeatedly to progress through an uninspired storyline filled with jokes that aren't really very funny.
  6. Because of the shallow gameplay, I can't imagine anyone playing through this game once, much less multiple times. It's a simplistic romp into gaming nostalgia that won't appeal to anyone but the most retro of the retro-gamers out there.
  7. Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude is not sexy or clever, entertaining or witty. Call me a fuddy duddy if you will, but my recommendation is to go play something - almost anything - else.

    The mini-games are not so bad, but I'll agree that some got repetitive. But some of the storylines are very funny - especially Morgan's D&D game and Beatrice the Prof! Those giving it total crap reviews probably got frustrated with the mini-games and didn't give it a chance. Expand

    Graphics look ok, but the gameplay is lacking a lot. Repetitive to the max.

    This game lacks all the wit and humour of the original Larry games. It has little plot & is highly boring and repetetive. It's an empty shell of a game filled with potty-humour and stupid min-games. Expand

    Oh. My. God. This game isn't just bad, it's insulting. The humour is sick and twisted; presumably the developers thought of the game as funny, but anyone who think this game is funny should seek psychological treatment. Now. So, please, don't buy this game. Even self-abuse is more fun than this. Expand
