Similar to other Legend Entertainment adventures, Eric the Unready uses text and verb commands to interact with the world and characters, collect items and solve puzzles. The princess has been kidnapped by Queen Morgana, and it's up to Sir Pectoral, the bumbling, muscle-clad jouster, to come to her rescue. Eric's adventure is laced with clever wording and parodies of television shows and films, including Star Trek. He will encounter massive dragons, wizards, dwarves, unicorns and attack turtles while visiting locations such as the Swamp of Perdition and The Not So Great Underground Empire. There isn't much animation, but the visual interpretations fit their descriptions perfectly. Written by Bob Bates, designer of TimeQuest and Frederik Pohl's Gateway, conversations are often hilarious and the plot is well conceived and engaging until the end credits. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
