Review of Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude (PC CD)

This review originally appeared on Amazon. See more reviews by Dan.

Moderately Amusing; But Somewhat Repetitive

Sadly, the dramatic graphical improvements over the previous ‘Larry’ games is countered by a significant reduction in playability. Most of the sub-quests come down to one of five or six of the same mini-games, over and over again. The scenes and situations that little Larry Lovage finds himself in are amusing, and after a while you’ll find yourself playing the games just to see more of the plot unfold.

If you like playing the same old “bash the buttons in the correct order” mini-games again and again, this’ll suit you. But if you’d rather just see the plot tick by you’re better spending your money on seeing a movie.
