PS4 Review: Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry

July 2, 2019 by  

Insert innuendo here…

Hey ladies, I’m back in business. My new adventure, Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry, takes me – whatever the route or twist of fate – from the end of the ’80s directly into the 21st century and wow, how the world has changed.

Leisure Suit Larry has had what some would call a chequered past when it comes to his games, with the peak being the first few games, the huge mess that was Box Office Bust and a return to form after with more traditional gameplay. Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is another return to the point-and-click formula that worked well for the series in the past. In it, 1986’s Larry is kidnapped by aliens and taken directly to today and has to try and fit in with the tech-heavy, politically correct world we live in now. Suffice to say, it doesn’t go quite as planned…

Larry ends up getting a smartphone and installs Timber (Obviously a mock version of Tinder) to try and score with women and ends up going back and forth across town trying to fix everyone’s issues so he can get his leg over. There’s hardly any subtly when it comes to the dialogue or the locations that either contain buildings, posters or items that are sexual in nature. So basically, expect lots of naughty bits to be on show.

The puzzles themselves are as obscure as you can imagine from a point-and-click game, I did have to look up a guide a number of times in order to progress since the solution to some of them I never would have solved. You can combine items to solve them too and even then, it’s never really clear what you can use it for. A hint tool would have been welcome, but the solutions are priceless and disgusting at the same time.

Visually, WDDD has a comic-book style to it that works very well with the material that is here. It’s well animated overall and the voice-acting is impressive, even if cringe inducing with all the innuendo.

The Verdict

Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is a disgusting game that is just brilliant from start to finish. It has some tricky puzzles, but the solutions are hilarious and hopefully this will be the start of a new resurgence for Larry Laffer.

Score: 8.0
