    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.

    Once you have mastered the three or four things you can do it becomes mind-numbingly repetitive.

    I thought the first section was quite good and I was really prepared to enjoy the challenge and the exploration, but too many frustrating timed sequences spoiled the experience.

    A highly frustrating game. If looks are all that count then it's very good looking, but as an adventure game it falls short of providing a satisfying experience. It would have been much improved minus the mini games, with a lot less dying, and with more attention paid to the adventuring puzzles.

    There was clearly some black humour and some quirky characterisations, and some of the more confronting material is clearly included for shock value. It all, however, gets lost in the wash.

    The audience for Midnight Nowhere is one that sees attitude, juvenile humour, body count and scantily clad or naked females as a definite plus. Grown up adventurers may consider looking elsewhere for mature and adult content.

    All up, Cypher was disappointing. But I did feel a sense of accomplishment when I had finished, albeit with some help.

    The game seems unfinished with story development and motivation left out.

    It still makes little sense, and the voices are at times as diabolical. But the sense of fun was gone. It felt tired and pedestrian, rather than compellingly bizarre and outrageous.
