    Where else can I get the chance to score with the head of anthropology and a Russian exchange student all in the same day?
  2. Just one of the most hilarious games I have played in a long time.
  3. Surprisingly, this game has a ton of staying power. Among the hundred or so people you can talk to, there are a dozen different girls to pick up and at least twice that number that send Larry on fetch tasks or trigger funny events. And I don't mean sort of funny. We're talking wack to the extreme.

    Worth buying, especially for the cartoon raunchiness. But don't let on that this is the only way you meet women.
  5. Leisure Suit Larry takes off its clothes and shows us an imaginative world full of sexually starved monkeys that can talk, chicks with dicks, and several other zany enticements that will have you so horny, you'll be licking the dust off your television screen.
  6. Magna Cum Laude does get a slight recommendation based on its grade school level humor, but just prepare yourself for a lot of load screens and repetitive mini-games.

    The voice acting is actually very nicely done and very authentic. By authentic I’m talking about lots of swearing and sexual comments, this is a college setting after all.

    The core of what makes these games so memorable is still there in full force - pretty girls, unspeakably embarrassing sexual acts, and an endearing dorkiness that makes the entire experience feel mroe charming and humorous than exploitive. [Nov 2004, p.148]
  9. It’s ribaldry and bathroom humor told with tongue planted firmly in cheek or perhaps hand planted provocatively in pants – take your pick.

    Very creative and witty dialogue, but the gameplay gets repetitive after a while. Also when Larry is drunk the game is essentially Very creative and witty dialogue, but the gameplay gets repetitive after a while. Also when Larry is drunk the game is essentially impossible; rather than making things difficult to see, it forces you to have absolutely precise timing. Minor flaws, however, and the game is worth renting at the least. Full Review »

    I really enjoyed this game. While it does have it's flaws: Simplistic overall game design, needlessly long loading screens, but the humor isI really enjoyed this game. While it does have it's flaws: Simplistic overall game design, needlessly long loading screens, but the humor is top notch. While I get allot of the old time fans were upset about "new" Larry. The old Larry is a symbol of an age that really doesn't apply anymore. 70s referenses were funny in the 80s and 90s, but 2000+ and they do get a bit stale. New Larry follows in the shoes of his uncle perfectly, just minus the leisure suit. Full Review »
