IMG has posted a review of The Exchange Student, a point and click adventure game created by Pan Metron Ariston. Here's a clip from the review:

TES leans more towards the LucasArts side of adventure gaming, with cartoonish graphics, a whimsical story, and a simplistic point and click interface that includes an easy inventory system. The story, however, is firmly rooted in Sierra's Leisure Suit Larry mythos, as on-screen avatar Emilio looks to get lucky with the ladies in Sweden. As the title suggests, Emilio, who hails from Italy, takes the advice of a friend and enrolls in an exchange program at a Swedish university with the ultimate goal of familiarizing himself with as many Swedish girls as possible. Ironically, while this could be a perfectly believable goal if presented by a real-life Emilio, it's a theme that has been done to death in the aforementioned Larry series, and consequently comes across as hackneyed in TES.
