PC Magazine (Dec, 1982)
Deadline is an interesting, sophisticated program with a wide range of responses that guarantee that each play of the game will be fascinating and unique. The pleasures of discovering clues, building a case, and outwitting a fiendishly clever murderer should provide entertainment and challenge enough for any detective. Players have been known to do without food or sleep until the case has been solved. Rumor has it that Infocom, Inc. has even more difficult riddles of detection coming in the near future.
