Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust
His Game Should be buried deep underground and then eaten by worms. Ironic as Team 17 are partly responsible for this prolapsed rectum of a game. The weird thing is, clearly lots of money has been pumped into this project. Hollywood personalities like Carmen Electra, Shannon Elizabeth and Nikki Cox won't have come cheap (cough) after all - and yet it is just so utterly devoid of anything that will make sane people want to play it.
If you do choose to do so, you'll play Larry Lovage, nephew of the original Larry Laffer, who joins his uncle on the latter's film lot to sniff out a mole from a rival studio, run by the un-hilariously named Big Anus. Along the way you'll be getting involved with the wacky world of Tinselwood - you can create your own movies (kind of), play some dire mini-games themed around woeful puns on major films, plus ogle some horrifically designed female characters, who resemble recipients of plastic surgery from Dr Mengele.
Two things this game is trying to do - entice pervs with the promise of "hot girls in bikinis" and get people laughing at its self-described 'saucy' humour. However, not even sex-starved lunatics could be turned on by the monstrous mannequins in this game, while the humour is as amusing as forcefully humping a bee's nest. You'll also surely fail to avoid being bored to death by the excruciatingly dull open-world mechanic.
Box Office Bust plays a bit like Psychonauts, but lacks any and all of that game's wonderful charms. If you want to play a Leisure Suit Larry game, dig out the first one instead. Why don't Codemasters commission a new Dizzy game instead of wasting money on this shit?
