    One might ask what compelled a review to keep going, my guess is Sage does not treat his games like a burrito. :evil:
  • Demon Ninja  - Agreed

    This game is definatly the worse piece of garbage this year. My vote was going to Shellshock 2 untill this piece of fecal matter came out. I feel like my eyes are going to be stuck to the back of my skull if I play it anymore from rolling my eyes at every bad sex pun the game says every 5 seconds. If you're a felow achievement whore like me and want to play just to get 1000 gamerscore from a bad game, don't. IT's just not worth it. I doubt I'm gona even beat the game before I have to return it from how frustrating it is.
  • CrimsonDusk  - Nudity
    The only thing and I mean the ONLY thing that could have saved this game to be bought would have been nudity. And I'm not talking showing breasts (you only get cleavage in this game) I mean 3D sex. I don't care about nudity in my game but for what the game is maybe it would have sold if they showed some skin because the other aspects of this piece of crap make it untollerable to play. If they would have put nudity at least the teen demographic that buys comics for their enormous boobs would have bought it but alas this game is a BUST.

    Thats NOT Leisure Suit Larry game. I have played LSL-game and I know one when I see it.
  • DrGero  - Too bad.
    avatar
    Ah, that's a shame, but unsurprising.

    I had a lot of fun with the previous LSL games (have but haven't played MCL), and it's sad to see the series mutate the way it has.

    The poor adventure genre... will thee ever reclaim thy former glory?

    Gobliiins 4 is coming out soon, hopefully it doesn't suck; I don't want to see another favorite old series get butchered.

    ...I WORK in a videogame store and I didn't even know this came out. I may think Magna Cum Laude had some major problems, but this is just the final nail in the coffin.

    Al Lowe deserves the right to sue.
  • reb92287  - Sigh
    avatar
    Seems they'll never get that same style of humor and fun that the former LSL games had. I truthfully hope this game was the last nail in the coffin so Larry can finally die with some dignity. Then again....people still buy sonic games so it wouldn't suprise me if they make another sequel.
  • Epileptic Gamer  - Poor Al Lowe...
    avatar
    He never got to work on the last two games, and never even got copies from the developers, despite being the creator of LSL before Vivendi turned it to shit.
    (He actually had to buy MCL to find out how bad it was!)

    On BOB, Al says this:

    "My Take

    Thank you, VU Games, for keeping me completely away from this latest disaster!"

    The games before "Larry Loveage/Lovage" are awesome though. A lot of that can be attributed to Al's wicked sense of humour Vivendi attempts and EPICALLY FAILS.

    [color=olive]After Al Lowe left the series be after "Love for Sail", they should have let the series die gracefully and on a good note. But no. Now this and Magna Cum Laude is how the newest generation will know and remember Larry Laffer.[/color]

    Wow, that was bad, it looks like a dirty Disney film, to say this is good would be like saying Carmen Electra is funny, it's a lie and you know it.
  • Kalmageddon

    I bet that it was one of those games where the developers had more fun making it than anybody else did playing it, hence the expensive cast, big breasted women and atrocious game play.
  • DeSandman
    avatar
    I would like to see Al Lowe's LSL games be re-released with today's technology (better graphics and sound)
  • DaxStrife
    avatar
    Love the review; I was one of the chumps dumb enough to buy the last game and while I wasn't going to touch this one, it's nice to see someone else tear into it.
  • Kaygeebee
    I agree. This game sucks...hard!
  • EvilSandwich
    avatar
    *sigh* I was afraid that Box Office Bust would suck. God help me, I actually [i]liked[/i] LSL: MCL. But if BoB is going to forget about the humor, then whats the point?

    They really need to bring Al Lowe back into the development team.
  • flukielukie
    The puns when you closed this review ere just fantastic, great review Sage you are pretty spot on with this one.

    I'm sorry, but developers would have to TRY to be worse than Box Office Bust.
  • Mark Fanboy  - Thanks for the warning, Sage.
    avatar
    I kinda liked MCL but I think I'll pass on this one. >sigh< I miss Al Lowe. "Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to have my 360 tested for herpes." = Best line ever!
  • EarthboundXE  - I have to rent it now, thanks.
    avatar
    I'll be renting this at some point, I'm a bad video game buff.

    I probably got that from being a bad movie buff, which I bet I got from MST3K.

    I'm surprised from what you guys have said, there's no nudity?

    I would have though a game like this would have had some.
    Not that would it make the game any better.
  • randomduded
    avatar
    Sage, why did you even try it in the first place? Seriously, all those games just seem unnappealing and or wastes of space.
  • freemonty
    avatar
    Wow. This really says something abut what developers think gamers expect nowadays. I mean, really, they [i]had[/i] to put in platforming, car driving, and fighting? Adventure games aren't that hard to develop, and a far cry more entertaining than this must be. Video games have never been the same since that genre died.
  • Yaoi Huntress Earth
    I knew there'd be something wrong with this game when they let Adam Sandler's comedy crew write it. I also liked MCL (the teddy bear strap-on scene has to be seen to be believed) and enjoyed the others so it's sad to see it fall like this.

    God damn! It's not hard to make a profit off a Larry game! Give Al Lowe time, the hardware, some people to work on the graphics, maybe some music scores. I wish Al would try and join Tell Tale games.
  • JMShearer
    It sounds like Leisure Suit Larry has fallen down the same path Final Fantasy has. The game itself sucks, but it'll probably sell really well all the same, just for all the people only buying it because of the title.
  • Raistlinhawke  - Final Fantasy down hill?

    Exactly how is Final Fantasy gone down hill as you describe?

    And no, despite some knowing the name, the game won't sell that well. Not as many people are familiar with the brand as you think, and even those that are can know a bad game when they see one.
  • traceace
    When they told the actual creator of this series to fuck off, pretty much, it was a recipe of putting the series down the tubes. I played the older games later in my life and enjoyed them. I wouldn't touch the newer ones with a ten foot pole.
  • psycher7
    if i had ignored the narration i'd swear this was a more cleavagey version of Simpsons Hit and Run. that's almost exactly what it looked and sounded like. only not as good.
