Title Leisure Suit Larry 2 Goes Looking For Love (In Several Wrong Places) Game Type Adventure Company Sierra Players 1 Compatibility All Submission Adrian Simpson Profiled Reviewer Review Good old Leisure Suit Larry. His perennial search for sex is the stuff of classic comedy, isn't it? Well, no it isn't. It's just badly written, unfunny rubbish. This is how not to do it. The Secret Of Monkey Island is how to do it properly. Other examples of how to do comedy properly are films such as "To Be Or Not To Be", "Bringing Up Baby", "The Life Of Brian", "The Holy Grail" and "This Is Spinal Tap". Also see "The Simpsons" for some decent jokes. If you haven't figured out the plot yet, take a look at the unamusing lengthy title. You can guess the whole plot and jokes from it. The actual game is a classic point-and-click style adventure. You click on part of the view and Larry waddles slowly from one uninteresting scene to the next until you finish the game or become inspired to commit some sort of outlandish suicide. The graphics are up to the usual Sierra standards at the time and essentially they are pretty rubbish, even for the time. All Sierra games were straight ports of PC originals and as such the graphics remained the same as on the PC. I once read a boast by Sierra that they could port one of their PC games to the Amiga in a couple of weeks. While this meant more games released more quickly, it also meant that Amiga owners were treated as second class users of the software. We didn't buy Amigas to play sub-standard PC games. One advantage of the straight-from-PC conversion of Sierra games was that they were all hard disk-installable. As the games usually came on multiple disks, this was pretty much essential. More companies should have followed Sierra's example in this respect. We can file the Leisure Suit Larry games with the other clichéd output of Sierra. This series is the sexist, clichéd rubbish, the King's Quest series is the fantasy, clichéd rubbish and the Space Quest series is the science fiction, clichéd rubbish. The other Sierra adventures can go under miscellaneous, clichéd rubbish.
