Your Commodore (Nov, 1987)
This is another typical Infocom game - and that means excellent. Superbly packaged, an excellent parser (although it's beginning to show its age now) and a story that just drips with atmosphere. Lurking Horror is a game that just demands to be played after midnight with all the lights turned out.
Zzap! (Aug, 1987)
All of this is carried out in Infocom's usual meticulous style - and there is no doubt that Dave Lebling has a wonderful talent for bringing both locations and those that inhabit them to life.

If you want a real gruesome spinechiller you will not bne disappointed with Lurking Horror. Highly recommended for playing late at night in a darkened room!
64'er (Oct, 1987)
Wer sich für Textadventures interessiert, wird mit Lurking Horror einen neuen Glanzpunkt dieses Genres erleben. Und jedenfalls ist während des Testens oft genug eine Gänsehaut über den Rücken gelaufen und außerdem lassen wir nachts jetzt stets das Licht an...
The size of the game and the amount of puzzles there are to solve, together with the very professional implementation of Lurking Horror make it yet another masterpiece from Infocom. Playing it alone in the darkened room at the dead of night is not recommended for the weak of heart.
