I love most aspects of this VGA remake of a EGA game which was an EGA remake of a text game which was a touch up of another text game.
Production values are exactly what you would expect from Sierra at the pinnacle of their business. Awesome visuals and stylish designs, jazzy music, many jokes and an interface which is a pleasure to use are all there. This one in my opinion benefited greatly from the transition to VGA unlike Space Quest which went for the late 80s stylized retro futurism and lost that cold and metallic charm of previous installments.
This game is considered retro now and here we are playing it decades later. And guess what - the main protagonist is kind of the same. A guy sporting a 70s suit in a late 80s world with his outdated sensibilities and refusal to accept modern reality. To me it looks like this Larry game is supposed to be perceived as series of comedy skits about courting stereotypical women with overblown sexuality in the early 90s.
Negative bits are still there, of course.
The humour is sometimes racy and borderline offensive, but it is what it is - a product of its time, bound to die in obscurity. There's almost no story and character development to be seen here.
I hated the puzzles where you need to wait for something to happen, because in adventure games I don't like to stay on one screen for too long.
The games is also really really short. Creators made an attempt to make it longer by including a money system where you have to find ways to get more money to be able to proceed with the game. Best way to gain money here is to play Blackjack and with Save/Load feature the game of Blackjack becomes an unnecessary annoyance and kind of a waste of time.
I would recommend this game to anyone who grew up in the nineties and missed it for some obscure reason. The jokes, music and authentic visuals make this very much worth it.
