REVIEW: Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry on XBOX ONE


Review by Jon Donnis

I was sent a review code by Assemble Entertainment for Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry.

Most gamers under the age of about 30 will have no idea who Larry Laffer is, well back in the late 80's and early 90's the Leisure Suit Larry games were some of the biggest games around, they featured adult humour, so if you were a kid these were the hottest things around. Well it is now 2020 and Larry is back, and I for one couldn't be happier, since I was playing these types of games all the way back in the 1980's.

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry is a classic point and click adventure following Larry as he wakes up in a dark room, he finds his way out, heads into a bar, and is told he has been missing for 30 years. But Larry hasn't changed at all. He still only has one thing on his mind, and that is sleeping with women.

As Larry you will end up with a new "Pi Phone" and an App called "Timber", but to sleep with his perfect woman (Faith) he needs the perfect score, and this leads you on an adventure whereby you will meet loads of people, find yourself completing tasks, and solving puzzles. 

This is a game that perhaps is a bit out of time, it is a risk to bring back a game that relies on adult humour especially in 2020 whereby everyone is offended at everything, however I think that this game is firmly aimed at people who played and enjoyed the original games. If you are under 30 you will probably hate this, and if you are over 30 then it will bring back fond memories.

The Good

Beautiful hand drawn scenes, plenty of fun interactions within the story, and a "satisfying" end.

The Bad

I enjoyed it, but I can imagine some people finding the humour just not fit for modern times.

Also the game did crash for me a few times, I have not heard of anyone else having this issue so it might just be me, but if it is a problem I am sure the developers will fix it asap.

Summary

Leisure Suit Larry is back at his filthiest and best, an enjoyable story, funny moments. I score the game a solid 8/10
