That's right everyone, Larry is back. For those who played the previous LSL game for the original Xbox, you were probably thinking to yourself "Wow, this game is fun! There is no way that they can make the next installment terrible at all!" Well, for those people I say this, " Oh yes it can!!" This game is terrible on many levels. First of all, let me explain the outline of the storyline. You play as Larry, a porn obsess man who gets assigned by his uncle (who just happens to own a major porn studio) to go undercover to find a "mole" who is trying to run his studio into the ground. The first thing you are going to notice is the camera. The camera is by far the worst thing possibly in this game. It makes everything else very difficult. Since you have no control whatsoever with the camera 98% of the time, you can't figure out what you are suppose to do next. I can't count the amount of times I had to go onto youtube and look up a walkthrough just so I could beat one level. The controls are kind of hard to figure out, but once you figure them out and learn how to deal with the fact that most of the buttons don't work when you need them to. You somewhat be fine. For example, there is one mission imparticular that I had trouble with fighting off the security guards, the only thing you can do is to just hold down the x button and have Larry counter-slap him to do any kind of damage. The storyline is very sexist, plain and simple (hell, it's set at a porn studio for crying out loud). There are, however, some things that are actually good about this game. The mini-games are rather enjoyable, most of them you are just required to drive a golf cart and race it around the studio lot. The other thing is the price. The game only cost $10 brand new. As far as saying if it is worth paying that much for, I really can't tell you. That's just your own opinion. Overall, the only thing that I can really say is stay away from this game. Those who own this game (i.e. yours truly) will probably beat the game once and never have the intent of playing it ever again. Don't bother trying to rent the game. If you do want to play it, just try to find someone who bought it. If you ask me, this game is almost as bad as playing Superman for the N64.

I was stoked about this game coming out. Even through all the nonsense with VU/Activision, I was still chomping at the bit for this game to come out. Then I find out Codemasters got the rights to the game and I was ready... Read Full Review
By far, Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust is the death knell for the series that was so beloved in the days of pixels and 4-colored computer monitors. This game is full of bugs, luke-warm perverted jokes, visual and ga... Read Full Review
