Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust
Not the Larry we love
For many years I have play the various LSL games by Sierra and have enjoyed them. I even enjoyed LSL:MCL which was not done by Al Lowe and Sierra, but this time around i don't enjoy the adventure. Code-masters and Team17 picked up the helm and turned it into a platformer, now this works well but the problem comes with no 360 camera control in certain places making it sometimes difficult for movement. Now the story doesn't seem very fleshed out considering the hollywood that has been put into this game. I mean its not that bad dut it is not the greatest. It is nice to see a different approach to Larry but it feels that the key elements that made Larry so great are gone. I will say the dreamscape sequences are probably the best part of the game and the directors mode is cool but just a mini-game that doesn't payoff what you expect from what you read about. Meanig the directors mode isn't a mini the Movies type of thing. To be honest I give it a 4/10 and I don't think Larry fans will be happy, but Happy-Madison fans will.
Not even worth having
First off let me say Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust is bust and save your money for another title . The LSLBOB is in no way anything like that other leisure suit games ! The graphics seem decent dont even seem like the type you would see powered by the unreal engine . The control system for your character is nothing like those found in the older leisure games . This game is basicly a platform type game with some freedom but nothing near you could do in the older games . I dont know how this company got the rights to do a leisure suit larry game its a total bomb simple as that ! I would say any of the other leisure suit game before this would be better any format ! I have had the older games and first off was thinking would be kinda like that . So after playing the game for a little while after getting it felt i would done better buying some other xbox 360 game for that same value . I dont like to bash games verry much i try to enjoy all kinds of video games , and i find my self not really having a fun time with Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust . I will leave ya with this for this value on the game you could prob find the older games and have a better time or just any other game ! Sorry this box office bust gets 2 thumbs down!
It's still enjoyable
This game is not as bad as people are saying. It's also nothing special either. The graphics are like an original xbox title. It almost looks like a port from last generation. The controls can be frustrating in some of the platforming, but overall they are decent. The story is your typical Larry style in your face comedy that should be welcome by fans of the series. The length seems to be pretty long considering i've played for hours and have not finished the game yet. When the game really gets going icons pop up on your mini map gta style. You can choose to do the main objectives or pick some side missions. I don't know what it is. Maybe it's just the fact that i've been wanting to play LSL for awhile, but even though the game had some frustrating controls and bad graphics I still found it enjoyable and actually quite addicting. One of the reasons may be because I just want to see the story unfold and see what crazy things will be said next. Bottom line: If you're a fan of the series and you like raunchy comedy this is worth the cheap price of admission.
Codemasters ruined the leisure suit larry franchise. Get leisure suit larry magna c u m laude instead.
Leisure Suit Larry Box Office BOMB
I've played all the larry games from the beginning on pc and later on xbox and this larry game is by far the worst i've play as both a larry game and as a game in general. Leisure suit Larry game need 3 thing make make it a larry game, first a quirky sense of humour box office bust had it to a certain extent, second funny one-liners box office bust missed this big time and lastly pixelated titty.....it's not larry without pixelated titties on the screen and box office bust missed this big time. Ok i can get past the new look larry and the last gen graphics which at times appear blotchy and spotty but the control and camera it this game suck so bad you will repeated get frustrated and swear whole sentences of curse words. If you are a Leisure suit Larry fan......don't buy this game you'll be disappointed
What were they thinking?
Alright, I'll start this off first by saying, I am one who never likes to admit when I am wrong. With that said, I have been a huge lsl fan for the whole game series...I played them on my pc in the early days, and the xbox mcl was even good....so i figured, awesome a new larry game...i must buy, it cant be that bad....... Boy was i wrong. This is one of the worst games i have ever played, and its sad to say that, being a larry game.... but its the truth. the camera angles are the worst, and for some reason, it just seems like they rushed it to get it out.... most of the cut scenes, you can see right through the animation..like you can see through their skin and see the backgrounds or something..dont know what that is about...anyway, I should have saved my money, and just got a different game. sorry, but its a dissapointment.
What happened to Larry?
I was so excited this game was being released that I preordered it. As I was waiting I noticed they dropped the price. That was clue number 1 that this game was going to be bad. When I started playing my expectations were high maybe to high. As I continued to play I started asking myself what they were thinking. This game is nothing like the other LSL games. At best this is a poor knockoff that I would expect some college kids to make in their spare time. The camera angles and controls are some of the worst I have seen in a long time. The story has NOTHING to do with what LSL stands for and the mini games are a joke. I do not recommend this game to anyone. The only thing this game will do is make you mad and start playing one of the other LSL games. If you find this game at a flea market for 2 or 3 dollars and you are bored then go ahead and buy it other than that do not waist your time or money.
Come on its not that bad!
This was really fun at first. I really enjoyed it! After some time it got repetative and sometimes the timer runs out too fast but over all it was great and funny. It was nice to see some adult humor. I would recomend this. I have played some really bad games this isn't one of them !
Bad game. DONT GET!!!!!!
Wow they really screwed up on this game. Every thing about this game is bad That's all I have to say. Get Border Lands 2. plus they can do better with this game. LSLBOB is not a game, OK ITS A PIECE OF PLASTIC!!!!!!!!!
