Summary

Camelot is still splendorous even in EGA

The Good

I always loved Arthurian themes and this game was a great discovery, everything is very accurate and remains very faithful to the Arthurian myth. The use of Olde-English in the dialogues is also a great point. The fact of having to achieve certain actions and good deeds to obtain the Holy Grail was also very interesting to me. The graphics were real good for being only 16, i liked a lot the maps of Europe and Britannia and some of the backgrounds.

The Bad

Maybe there were too much dead-ends like in a lot of Sierra adventures, the copy protection puzzles were a bit annoying (i hope we see an amateur-remake in VGA someday and this could be removed and changed to some similar puzzles)

The Bottom Line

If you are an adventure game enthusiast and enjoy reading King Arthur adventures this is definitely your game.
