Leisure Suit Larry; Box Office Bust is… well… a complete bust

1 min read


Okay to be fair I didn’t actually expect this game to be great, rather for it to be some mindless fun. However I really didn’t expect it to be as terrible as it has turned out.

When a site like Eurogamer is saying things like, and I quote

“hateful, toss, stupid, tedious, terrible, dreadful, pathetic”

you start to understand the sheer awfulness that is Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust.

If you take a look at the screenshot above you will see that half the people are floating and the rest of the screen is just plain awful… and that’s the good part of the game apparently.

The rest of the game is un-humorous, crude, sexist and just plane terrible.

If you were in any doubt at all then take a look at their final summary

“You will not only want your money back, you will want reimbursement for the electricity consumed by your Xbox 360 in the six minutes it took to realise you had made a horrible mistake.”

Hell it sounds like it is more entertaining to read the review than play the game, so save yourself a couple of bucks and head on over and read the review.

    Well the game is terrible… ALOT of sexist jokes, and assumptions that makes you think…. That was perverted… They should of made it more puzzle related not task related… Kinda dumb but not unplayable…

    Sometimes this dude is just to straight forward with his sex comments while talking to the girls (bimbos… the lot of them) i give it a 6/10

    Why is it so difficult to bring back the good ol days of point and click adventures. It seems to me like people are focusing so much on hardware and marketing that everyone forgot to actually get some good writers in and write something that is actually funny.
