ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Fans of crossword puzzles and other forms of word-play will love Nord and Bert. Those of us with a disposition for exploration and discovery may find their patience sorely tried. Since puzzle magazines are the best-selling category of publication in the UK, the Pilg can only conclude that adventuring has spawned a new category of computer entertainment with tremendous potential. I suggest we call them "pootles", the players "pootlers", and look forward to hearing what readers think of this new art form.
Full marks to Infocom for branching out with something highly original, and extremely cleverly put together. But do not play Nord and Bert expecting anything like any other Infocom you have ever played. You won’t get it, and you will be disappointed. Do not play Nord and Bert if English is not your native tongue. Nord and Bert is a game of American wit. Do play it with a group of friends, perhaps over a few drinks.

I didn't enjoy this game, no atmosphere no excitement just lots of experimenting with words, very dull. Its links with the adventuring world are very tenuous indeed and I hope Infocom don't make Nord and Bert a precedent... I shan't vote for either of them.
