Your Sinclair (Feb, 1989)
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!
Crash! (Jan, 1989)
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)!

I found Lancelot very easy to get into. Mapping the game is easy enough and the landscape is well worth exploring to fully absorb the atmosphere of Arthurian times, and there's plenty to explore. Lancelot is up to (the usual) high standard we have come to expect from Level 9. It's a thoroughly enjoyable journey into the past, and with the added bonus of a prize worth £5,000 to compete for, can you afford not to buy it? Methinks not!
