Warrior Needs Hint, Badly
Simply presenting a challenge is insufficient: it's the writer's job to motivate the player to want to take on that challenge. Usually, this means the promise of a reward: the reward of good prose. Funny responses to commands, interesting plot developments, that sort of thing. The Erudition Chamber falls short on these counts. In fact, the game is seriously hobbled by the prose that comprises it. The author repeatedly misuses commas, misspells words, and gets verb forms wrong. (Adam Cadre)

SPAG
I loved the way situations had multiple and logical solutions. It was compulsive in a self-assessing way because you just had to find out which sect fitted you best. I also loved the way doors disappeared behind you as new areas were entered. I was left in no doubt that I should go forward with the equipment in my current inventory. No fifty-move treks across the map to retrieve an essential object discarded earlier. (Virginia Gretton)

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

Troubled prose... always weakens a game for me, and it's a pity, because this game is pretty strong in lots of other areas. I found no bugs, which always pleases me, especially in a comp game. It's certainly a quantum leap in quality over Freas' last work (Grayscale), and I feel encouraged that his next game may take the ingenuity shown by Erudition Chamber and combine it with the level of polish needed to make the gameplay experience as enjoyable as it should be.
