Finally after so many years of seducing beautiful women, Leisure Suit Larry has moved on and taken up a new job in the movie business. But alas, he now has his nephew chasing tail in Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust.
Players will visit Hollywood as Larry Lovage, who has a much better hairdo than his uncle. You’ll play your way through some various missions that have different themes inspired by movie genres, such as Horror and Wild West, completing missions along the way. Just by playing straight through the game, players will unlock eight different game completion achievements worth 240 gamerpoints, with the most valuable one worth 80 points for completing the entire game.
The rest of the achievements increase the amount of fun in the game. As you drop pickup lines, you’ll be able to earn Larry Awards for a job well-done, unlocking three more achievements after you’ve reached 100 awards. Also, there are a few basic skill achievements such as “Well Hung” for performing 3 consecutive ledge jumps, and “Old Silver-Tongue Award” for completing four director games successfully. You can unlock achievements for completing all mini-games, races, and unlocking all costumes, which add to the game’s replay value.
The best achievements in the game are the ones you’ll unlock for fooling around and having fun (and really more games should have achievements like these). These include “Speed” for using all unlockable costumes in one mission, “Car surfin'” for standing on a moving vehicle for 50 seconds, and “Broadcasting on Top of the world” for reaching the highest spot in the studio. And just to hurt your feelings, there are a few achievements that let you know how much you’ve played the game. These include walking 100 miles on foot, driving for 400 miles, and driving for a total of 3 hours in the game.
Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust features 30 achievements worth 1000 gamerpoints.
