Definitely a must for anyone who liked the arcade game - I can't think of anyone who didn't!
GameFan Magazine
The graphics, color, and sound in this game are killer, and the game is laid out well, and quite the challenge. My only beef is that Dirk tends to overstep a bit, making pinpoint jumps a real pain. Once you get the control down, I think you'll find this a worthy adventure.
Power Play
Das Dragon's Lair-Modul von Elite ist der spielerisch beste Bildschirmauftritt von Dirk: Die Grafik ist hübsch und mit Effekten garniert. Ab dem zweiten Level wird’s allerdings unfair und Dirks Steuerung ist gewöhnungsbedürftig. Und noch einen Rüffel: Warum hat man die Eingabe des Level-Paßwortes in eine langatmige Geschicklichkeitssequenz gepackt?
Ces idées imbéciles que les auteurs ont dû prendre pour des traits de génie, ajoutées à la platitude des trois misérables environnements et à une maniabilité très moyenne qui rend le jeu trop dur, suffisent à elles seules à abattre Dragon's Lair et à l'envoyer rouler dans des fonds abyssaux dont nul n'est revenu.
The Video Game Critic
The unimaginative stages seem to be sprinkled with a random assortment of creatures. In the water stage you float in a bubble while pushing barrels around. Worst. Stage. Ever. And what's up with the low-key, melancholy music? Did someone die? Yes, that would be the spirit of the original game.
