PC Magazine, September 10, 1996

"As the game unfolds, many sights and sounds will be immediately familiar to fans of the film. Right off the bat, the unique look, feel, and humor of a Monty Python productuion are faithfully recreated in this game.

Beware of the Black Knight!"Each of the game's nine main screens are based on important locations from the film, such as Plague Village, Camelot, and the naughty Castle Anthrax. Most of the scenes and characters are depicted using actual footage from the film, and the animation is reminiscent of the paper-cutout style used in all Python shows."

"...Although most mouse clicks will result in humorous video clips, animations, or sound bytes, you will have to click repeatedly in many places to find the items you need. By repeatedly we mean many, many times, not just three or four; in some places we actually lost count. This can get tedious in a hurry, even for Python fans.

"But that's really the game's only drawback. The graphics are excellent, as are the sound and video. In fact, we found it extremely difficult to tear ourselves away from The Holy Grail even after hours of play. It's easy to lose track of time as you explore Arthur's world.

"Of course, you will need to keep Monty Python's sense of humor in mind while playing. Much of the game's material is meant for mature audiences only, including a heavy dose of sexual humor and plenty of animated blood and gore..."

The Adventure Collective

Parlez vous francais?"This title is filled with all kinds of Monty Python animations. Strangest things will fly around onscreen. Clicking on the characters' clothing, buildings, and even vegetation will result in the most unexpected comments or events. Apart from these animated sprites, as you proceed through the scenes, you will meet members of the original movie cast in such a realistic way that you will think they have been cut right out of the film and placed into the game."

"On one hand, the adventure part of the game is rather short. If you know what you're doing, you can finish the game in five to six hours. On the other hand, this is a very time consuming game if you want to see and find all there is in it. Finally, once you finish the game, don't even think you've seen it all. After playing it through at least five times, I still find new things in this game."
