Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


Text adventures from the 80's are an acquired taste these days but I find "The Big Sleaze" every bit as hilarious now as I did when it first came out. The storyline is nothing special - you play a detective hired to solve a mystery - but the game is written with such wry and witty humour that it's often easy to overlook such minor failings. Guess the verb mars the gameplay in a few places (a common characteristic of adventures from that time) and the time-based system (certain things only occur at certain times and if you happen to miss them they're missed for good) doesn't help matters, but for a pure slice of 80's comedy nostalgia, you can't come across much better than this.
