Leisure Suit Larry is one of the most iconic characters in the history of computer gaming. The first game in the series, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, was published in 1987 and helped build the Sierra OnLine dynasty. Featured in a score of original software titles since then (not counting numerous anthologies and cameo appearances), the series' hero, Larry Laffer, is a bumbling, persistent everyman who just wants to be loved. Is that so wrong?
From original designer Al Lowe (designer of all of Larry's classic adventures) and writer Josh Mandel, Replay Games is remaking the landmark first game for a new generation. Expanded and enhanced in every detail and ready to rock your PCs. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is being reborn for those of you who might've seen your parents (or grandparents!) playing Larry behind closed doors.

At its core, Reloaded is pretty much the same as the '91 VGA-remake, so you might be wondering if this is still worth getting. Finishing Reloaded shouldn’t take you much longer than a few hours. However, there are literally thousands of unique and hilarious replies for interacting with the environment. Exploration is where the real fun is at. While I even found the dreadedread more Magna Cum Laude quite enjoyable, Reloaded simply is on a whole different level of funny. Some of the lines in Reloaded made me laugh harder than all of MCL combined. Humor is where this game truly excels at.
Unfortunately, this release continues a rather unfortunate tradition of Sierra-titles on GOG, as it severely lacks in the bonus content department. Also note that the game won’t allow the player to select the desired language - until a patch is released, you’ll have to fix that by changing your system settings. Oh, and don't be misled by that "Angry Broads"-screenshot. That part of the game isn't even playable! $20 for this may be asking a bit much, but it’s still a better deal than, say, paying $10 for the first three King’s Quest games. And once this goes on sale, there’s really no excuse to miss out on this charming and brilliantly funny throwback to oldschool point-&-click adventure gaming.

After the last 2 MISERABLE games, Al Lowe finally got his baby back in this quasi-new-somewhat-original game.
With the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign Al Lowe has brought us back Leisure Suit Larry 1: In the land of the lounge lizards reloaded! Now I know what you're thinking, "wasn't this game ALREADY remade?" " Can't I just get this game in the Leisure Suit Larryread more Pack?" I'm here to tell you that while yes this is Larry 1 and Yes this game was already remade in 1991, this ISN'T that game! This game has a HD make-over with all new jokes, a dialog tree (like Monkey Island and Sam and Max) New puzzles and even a NEW girl to chase after! This is not a money grab people I assure you! This is a new Al Lowe game! If you love Leisure Suit Larry you'll love this! If you're scared of Larry Laffer, don't worry he is a wimp and his bites hurt less than a mosquito. Al Lowe promises more "Reloads" of the rest of the series if this game is successful so if you're one of the people thinking "Damn why didn't he remake Leisure Suit Larry 3" HE PLANS TO! But only if we show we want it!
For people living under a rock for several decades Leisure Suit Larry tells the story of a 39 year old computer engineer who is tired of being a virgin and a loser and decides to throw caution to the wind, quit his job get in his '69 VW Bug and drive to Lost Wage leaving you $76 and there you the player starts on Larry (seemly) never ending quest to find love.

For years fans of Leisure Suit Larry and Sierra alike have been praying for a new Larry game. This is not it, but it's the next best thing. This is a remake of the original Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of Lounge Lizards, the title that started the beloved series. But there's more than just a new coat of paint, gloriously bouncy double D paint. The humor has been updated, someread more of the puzzles reworked, there's new original content added, and the famous Sierra death sequences are more hilarious than ever and not punishing (no reloads, yay). Welcome back Larry, we missed you so much!
