Just Adventure (Apr 11, 2002)
Zork Nemesis is an enjoyable game with quality art, lots of puzzles and some surprising story twists. The environment is rich and detailed and exploring it is fun, although the amount of information can be overwhelming at times, making it difficult to spot clues.
Mac Gamer (1997)
In the market where Myst knock-offs proliferate (and there are many more on the way in the coming months), Zork Nemesis stands head and shoulders above the pack. It has been very thoughtfully designed and expensively produced. Though it departs from the 'Zork tradition' for the sake of cashing in on the enduring popularity of Myst, it will certainly not disappoint the Myst fans, even though it is darker and more violent than Myst. It may not be breaking any new ground, but it certainly represents the state of the art in Myst-cloning. Still, it's unfortunate that the Mac port shows such marked decrease in graphic quality and speed, which will doubtless irritate or dismay many Mac gamers.

Se démarquant de la grande famille des jeux d'aventure estampillés Zork, Zork Nemesis parvient à offrir au travers d'un point'n click des plus classiques une aventure prenante et une ambiance très soignée qui saura retenir l'attention du joueur pendant de longues heures, tout en offrant un défi honorable avec des énigmes intéressantes et logiques. Pour peu qu'on aime les Myst-like et qu'on ne soit pas rebuté par les casse-tête, les graphismes un peu vieux et les endroits glauques, on ne peut qu'apprécier ce divertissement de très bonne facture. En résumé, un incontournable du jeu d'aventure !
High Score (Jan, 1997)
Det här är ett spel för vana äventyrare. Andra löper stor risk att fastna och därmed tröttna. Men känner du för en utmaning i vintermörkret är valet klart.
