Despite these technological changes though the game has exactly the same goal as before: to help Larry the loser get intimate with a lady, or preferably ladies. He does this through a series of increasingly bizarre mini-games, including the recurring conversation game in which your ability to select a series of dialogue choices, by controlling a sperm as it moves from left to right across a window at the bottom of the screen, determines the quality of your chat up lines. Other mini-games involve mixing drinks, drinking drinks and dancing--competence in which will make it increasingly likely that the various women in the game will want to "be" with you.
Since the gameplay is almost as simplistic as the humour this is clearly not going to be a game for everyone but if you fancy something a bit different it certainly makes a change from yet another shoot em-up--especially if you're attracted by the fact that the European version of the game features extra rudeness not seen in the censored American version. -- David Jenkins
Now, it's true that the game is not as good as it SHOULD have been, and it has a few annoying faults.
Firstly, the loading screens; There is a loading screen each time you enter a new area or start a mini game. At first it doesn't matter as the loading screens feature some nice pictures to keep you occupied. But when you get into the game and have more environments to explore it gets annoying as you may have 3 or 4 loading screens to 'endure' until you reach your destination.
Secondly, the size of the game is pitiful. My copy of LSL arrived on a saturday and I had completed it on tuesday after school. And also since all events in the game are mini games it could have done with a few more types of mini game for variety.
These annoyances however, take a backseat and can be tolerated because LSL is just too fun and hilarious to care.
Most of the mini games, although small, are brilliant. Some aren't as good. But all are challenging. Which is a good thing. The best thing about the game must be it's humour. It is not cheap peurile humour, it is genuinely funny. The dialogue, the innuendoes, some of the mini games and the situations are hilarious.
Despite the fact that LSL is short and a third of the game is spent watching loading screens, it is one of the most fun and entertaining games I've played in a long time. Genuinely hilarious and fun, it is worth the money I paid for it.
Although, I must warn you. This game surprised me, never has a game deserved it's 18 certificate like this one does.Read more ›
Overall the graphics are great and it is certainly very funny, however it is let down MASSIVELY by the amount of time you have to spend loading levels. This is OK for the first hour or so, but as the gameplay increases, you find yourself having to walk from one area to another with a very annoying wait between each area. Not really a falut of the developers I suppose, more to do with limitations of the PS2. Another annoying thing is the fact that the mini games are so repetitive and boring. OK to start they can be quite good fun, but after a couple of hours they become tedious, and you end up wimping out of each one.
This could have been great, but it becomes very annoying to play after a short while.
