Picking up chicks and getting laid...or not.

Picking up chicks, getting them presents, rocking the town of Lost Vegas in your leisure suit - all in the pursuit of getting laid. That's what the infamous Leisure Suit Larry is all about.

It's all very tongue in cheek and admittedly, kind of gross as you play the 40 year old Larry, who is still a virgin and decides to try his chances on the buxom girls in Lost Vegas. This guy has absolutely no game and it's up to you to pull the right moves for Larry to find the girl of his dreams, fall in love and score. Problem is, with his receding hairline, bad breath, and all round unappealing package, Larry is regarded more of a joke than a serious contender, but that's all part of the joke.


It's a throwback to the old DOS game, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards that everybody felt like they shouldn't be playing, even in all of its pixelated glory. After a fairly successful kickstarter campaign, Larry has been Reloaded and we remember that it wasn't that good in the first place.

Filled with tonnes of raunchy humour, with the sleaze factor turned on, you're able to lick, grope and even flash anyone and anything in the game. This is in addition to talking and looking to everything, even inanimate objects. There's a lot of sarcastic remarks and rude jokes as you explore the ostentatious, seedy environment of Lost Vegas, a blatant parody of the City of Sin.


For a point and click adventure game, this one is fairly easy with the bulk of the gameplay focused on 'find and fetch' puzzles. With blatant hints that you can't miss, the game is pretty much idiot proof and sends you back to restart the scene if you make the wrong decision, such as walking down a dark alleyway or not properly equipping yourself before a visit to the prostitute. You'll be participating in a lot of slot machines and blackjack to win money for the taxi and other purchases, which can be tedious and adds to the short length of the game.

Get the Adobe Flash Player to see this video.

The HD interface is cartoony and colourful, adding in some nice clarity behind the sleazy environments. The bright, colourful, and sometimes seedy setting is very fitting to the theme. New jokes such as "Angry Broads" arcade machine in the convenience store are have been added, but very limited. The slick interface is functional and easy to navigate.

The Final Verdict

Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded will probably appeal to those who were a fan of the series in the past, the curious who want to experience a bit of adult humour, but probably not anyone else. Your time in Lost Vegas will be short, sweet and probably not as full as action as you expected, with barely any depth to the game. Overall, I could have given Larry Reloaded a miss to save myself from being grossed out from some of its jokes.

Better than the last outing :P
What type of grinding are we talking about here?
I like it, remember the orginial,although i have the ipad version wonder how different they are?

I think it's the same as the iPad version milo.

@renagadez - Casino grinding. Not the fun type.
I bought in the steam xmas sale because it always interested me but the game's release was long before my time.
