As the first adult-adventure hero, Leisure Suit Larry was both mensch and chauvinist, trying to fill the role of lovable loser while objectifying women at every turn. It's been almost nine years since the previous installment of the franchise, and the gameplay, graphics, and controls of Magna Cum Laude indicate that Larry has aged fairly well.
Aside from the juvenile humor, much of which is devoted to bodily functions, the basic gameplay of Leisure Suit Larry Magna Cum Laude involves "conversations" in which Larry must say the right thing to score with the ladies. During a one-on-one with country girl Sallie Mae, you guide a sperm through an obstacle course. The better you do controlling the sperm, the better Larry's lines are. Two other diversions demonstrate some of the minigames. In one, Larry delivers fliers while catching paper airplanes; in the other, he dances with Sallie Mae by matching beats and buttons. The 3D interface looks great, though the demo doesn't provide much guidance on how to play. The full game is definitely intended for adults, but the demo seems more PG-13: it sprinkles a few bad words here and there, but contains no nude scenes or explicit sexual situations.
