Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry, is just about as happy as a moist fish taco that he hasn't had to experience Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust
. Lowe explains on his blog
that he wasn't consulted at all about the latest title, which is funny considering the game's executive producer said they were trying to design a game that Lowe would like to play. Lowe also wasn't even sent a review copy -- in fairness, he points out that no advanced copies were sent to press either, "always an ominous sign."
The current Metatcritic score
is ... holy wow
, a 28?! EuroGamer certainly wins the "best jab award" for writing the game is "less erotic than psoriasis." Lowe wasn't happy
with Magna Cum Laude
either. It's so sad to see how this once titular (don't care if it's the wrong usage, it's punny) sexual series has gone flaccid.
