Quest for Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness

Sierra On-Line, 1993

Shadows of Darkness is an appropriate name for this fourth outing in the Quest For Glory series. In this chapter you must journey to Mordavia, a dark land that could have been taken straight from the spookiest of Transylvanian legends. Against this sinister backdrop you must battle monstrous creatures that strive to bring about eternal darkness. This edition also allows character import from earlier games in the series and was highly ranked by popular gaming magazines of the time.  This game is way better in graphics, sound and music than it predecessors and the CD-ROM version of the game also features digital speech. The title covers numerous gaming elements like visuals, music, story, fighting system, replay value, atmosphere, and combines them into one of the best gaming experiences you'll ever come across.
