"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
"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
"...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..."
"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."
