This is definitely a value for money game, to go back to again and again. Level 9's adventure systems been developing in leaps and bounds over the last year or so, but they haven't always had the stories to go with it. Knight Orc was a slight disappointment, Gnome Ranger was much better and had the bonus of humour, and now with Lancelot it's shown it can come up with a serious theme that makes full use of its skills - and which will test your skills to the full, as well. This good knight's definitely a good buy!

In conclusion, Lancelot is truly an epic adventure which successfully captures the mood of Arthurian Britain with some lengthy, accurate descriptions. Technically superb with fluent play, this is a very fine adventure which is well worth the rather high asking price. A further incentive for purchase is the included competition, in which the winner will receive a silver 'replica' of the mythical Holy Grail (I thought it was gold)!

Lancelot is a thoughtful and highly literate adventure. It may not have your adrenalin coursing with excitement, and the faithful treatment of its subject necessarily prohibits the humour of say, Gnome Ranger, but nevertheless it offers a great deal of quiet, intelligent pleasure. The telling of the Arthurian legends in the form of a computer adventure is a splendid accomplishment which is unlikely to be bettered for a long while to come.

Lancelot ist beileibe keine Katastrophe, doch bleibt es eindeutig hinter dem hohen Adventure-Standard. den Magnetic Scrolls und Infocom geprägt haben. Technisch hat das Programm einiges zu bieten, doch das kann über ein verhältnismäßig schwaches Adventure nicht hinwegtäuschen. Nicht nur, daß die Grafiken wieder ziemlich anspruchslos sind, die Puzzles sind unlogisch oder einfach dämlich (was ich hasse wie die Pest). Dann wieder streikt der Parser oder die Geschichte wird derart bierernst, daß man die Lust verliert.
