Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places) was wildly popular, but garnered some criticism for fans who missed the double-entrende that was prevalant in the first game, as well as some of the more adult themed situations.
Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail! is the last LSL game written by series creator Al Lowe, and the last to feature Larry as the original protagonist of the game. After many of the LSL games had gained a reputation for not actually featuring all that much raunchy content, Love for Sail! included some much more risqué elements compared to previous installments. It also featured more fleshed-out, cartoon style graphics than its predecessors, as well as full voice acting.

Now let’s take a look at the first six games in the series, since they never released a Leisure Suit Larry 4. Now why was there no release of a Larry 4? Well that’s something that eluded fans for years. It was jokingly referred to by both Sierra and fans as The Case of the Missing Floppies. Some speculated that the game was complete, but the set of floppies it was saved on disappeared and the team would have to rebuild it from scratch. But the actual reasons it wasn’t released are far less fun. Lowe stated that Sierra began work on a multiplayer installment of Leisure Suit Larry that was to be played out over The Sierra Network (think of it as Sierra’s version of an interactive Xbox Live). This failed due largely to technical reasons, and the planned multiplayer Larry game was shelved.

This sparked my interest in the series, which lasts to this day. Just what made the series so great? Well a lot really. The Leisure Suit Larry series was published by Sierra from 1987 to 2009, but for this review I’m going to focus on the adventure games that they released from 1987 to 1996. Those released afterwards were poor adaptations that many fans of the series have disavowed, and for good reason. Created and written by Al Lowe, Leisure Suit Larry follows the escapades of its main character, Larry Laffer who, though still somewhat lovable, is a balding, no-luck, double entendre-speaking, leisure suit wearing loser in his 40s. The series follows him around as he spends much of his life trying, and usually unsuccessfully, to seduce attractive women.

The Leisure Suit Larry (LSL) series had its origins in Sierra’s earlier Softporn Adventure, a 1981 text adventure whose story and basic structure were reused for the first LSL game. The name Leisure Suit Larry came from Lowe’s comment to Sierra founder Ken Williams that Softporn Adventure was so dated that it should be wearing a leisure suit.
