In this 3rd person adventure game, Larry takes a summer job working on his uncle Larry’s movie lot doing odd jobs and trying to uncover a mole from another studio who threatens to air the studio's dirty laundry in the tabloids. Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust is a rollicking, innuendo-laden lampoon of Hollywood that features open world sand box game play that includes exploration, platforming, racing and puzzle-solving to complete missions. Additionally, the game features an all-new Directors Game that allows the player to create their very own "Larry Feature." True to form, Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust features sophomoric comedy and bombshell babes thanks to the writing talents of Allen Covert and an All-Star cast of actors and actresses, including Jay Mohr, Dave Attell, Shannon Elizabeth, Carmen Elektra, Patrick Warburton, Jeffrey Tambor, Nikki Cox, Peter Graves, Jane Lynch and Josh Keaton as the voice of Larry Loveage.

  1. Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust fails reproducing the original spirit of Leisure Suit series. It fails from a technological and artistic point of view too, with tasteless humor and poor graphic. Variety is the only good aspect of the game, with some good sets and a high number of minigames, but it isn't enough to make it a good game.
  2. Larry Loveage is the nephew of Larry Laffer, but he's not half as charming as his uncle. This new game offers completely new gameplay that doesn't suit the character, along with many technical issues that make it a repetitive, uninspired and not so interesting game. It forgets Larry's legacy and tries its own ideas, but with little fortune.
  3. Mindless, repetitive gameplay and a truly atrocious sense of humor help Leisure Suit Larry live up to its name--it's a total bust.
  4. It's not funny, it's not fun to play and it's less erotic than psoriasis. As the Smurfs would say: **** off, Larry.
  5. What a shame Larry, no chance to revitalize a such brilliant career. It's time to stop the show, before Sierra ruins what is still good in our memory. After more than 20 years of story, he deserves some rest. Go Larry, and don't come back!

    It's poorly designed and poorly made, and has the air of a game even the devs didn't care about. [July 2009, p.82]

    I was very saddened by this game. Not that it was awful; I have seen games much, much worse than this. The whole game just feels "rough". I was very saddened by this game. Not that it was awful; I have seen games much, much worse than this. The whole game just feels "rough". While the comedy exists it's inconsistent. Truly funny bits that will have you on the floor in tears are interspersed with cliches and low level humor. This manages to diminish the game's only advantage. Gameplay-wise the game is atrocious with it's weird camera and clunky controls. The bad controls can be a game-stopper on more than one occasions. At one instance you have to chain an unbelievable number of jumps and because the combo chaining in this game is non existent I suspect that many users will end the game there. If not there then it surely will happen at the point when you have to fight 9 guards and do some jump chaining afterwards. The graphics are quite mediocre. Despite the use of Unreal Tech the game doesn't push any boundaries, hell it does not even reach the norm. And even though the graphics are not taxing still the pop in is evident. The best thing in the game is the audio, with great voice talent but dull tunes. This game had tons of potential yet somehow it lost it on the way. Even the smaller pricetag does not justify such mediocrity. Expand

    This is without doubt the worst game i've played in 10 years but why did it take the gaming media so long to review this game.
    Having not been able to read a review and having a few days of work drove me to buy this rubbish.
    I too gave up at the mission involving beating 9 guards and then climbing a tower, the lack of any proper game design made this imposible and after starting over and the guard i was fighting got STUCK BEHIND A SOFA that i though **** this ****.

    I bought this game with high hopes after the seam splitting laughter "Magna Cum Laude" offered. I ended up throwing the game away after 6 I bought this game with high hopes after the seam splitting laughter "Magna Cum Laude" offered. I ended up throwing the game away after 6 hours of gameplay. Not funny, not the "mature" content promised, awfully designed levels making it very difficult to get anywhere, and a terrible trailing camera makes every turn of the character send the camera soaring around and throwing off the control of the character. Without doubt the worst game for the 360 I have ever played. Expand
