North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtThe Leisure Suit Larry series of graphic adventures have long been the gaming equivalent of the Porky's or American Pie movies, with the same sort of mix of non-politically correct toilet humour and titillation. In bringing back the franchise from the dead though the old style point n' click gameplay has been ditched for something a bit more modern, with you now enjoy direct control over Larry (well, actually his nephew) in a fairly large game world. Despite these technological changes though the game has exactly the same goal as before: to help Larry the loser get intimate with a lady, or preferably ladies. He does this through a series of increasingly bizarre mini-games, including the recurring conversation game in which your ability to select a series of dialogue choices, by controlling a sperm as it moves from left to right across a window at the bottom of the screen, determines the quality of your chat up lines. Other mini-games involve mixing drinks, drinking drinks and dancing--competence in which will make it increasingly likely that the various women in the game will want to "be" with you. Since the gameplay is almost as simplistic as the humour this is clearly not going to be a game for everyone but if you fancy something a bit different it certainly makes a change from yet another shoot em-up--especially if you're attracted by the fact that the European version of the game features extra rudeness not seen in the censored American version. -- David Jenkins
