Product: Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded
Publisher: Replay Games
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
There's no denying that Leisure Suit Larry is a lovingly crafted remake. It looks and sounds much better than it ever did, and it stays faithful to its subject matter while making a handful of adjustments that subtly change the experience for those who finished the original.
The question is whether it's a game that really deserved to be remade, and that's an altogether harder case to argue.
To all intents and purposes little has changed within the game. You still play Larry Laffer, a hopeless 40-something pervert whose sole aim is to get laid. He's meant to be a lovable doofus, but with his infuriatingly whiney voice and constant preoccupation with sex he's hard to warm to.
A fine remake, but it can't fix the flaws of the tawdry, outdated original
