Whisked away from his friends in Tarna by dark magicks, the hero awakes to find himself in the dreary land of Mordavia (whose culture, creatures and landscape are based on slavic and eastern-European folklore from our world). Facing both the suspicious and superstitious people of the local town and the ferocious monstrosities roving in the quiet woods around it, the hero must win the trust of the townspeople by helping them in their various plights and problems and by making the valley a safer place for them to live in. Moreover, he must unravel the mystery of the foreboding dark castle of the valley's former ruler, which has now been standing abandoned for years... or so it seems. For a terrible danger threatens, as a Dark Master prepares an unholy ritual to summon a demon from another dimension and cast the land into eternal darkness. Written by Brinsley

The best of the Sierra games!
5 October 2004 | by nightwolf_88See all my reviews

I have grew with the Sierra games. First I was introduced to Leisure Suit Larry games, then Space Quest and finally Quest For Glory games. I have to say that Quest For Glory games are not only the best Sierra games but also the best Adventure and Rolegames what have been ever made. My personal favourite is Quest For Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness. It is one truly masterpiece. The story is perfect, characters are lovely and the whole Town of Mordavia where the hero this time adventures is the truly excellent and intelligent. I'd love to live in Mordavia. Hero's best friend is a young mysterious girl named Katrina. Actress Jennifer Hale does her best in the role of Katrina. Her voice is absolutely perfect for this role. She has such a strong, beautiful voice that I have ever heard. Her french accent in this game is wonderful. They couldn't have picked a better actress for the role of Katrina. However Katrina isn't like she makes the hero understand. She is truly the Dark Master who plans taking Mordavia over with the hero's arch enemy Ad Avis who "died" in Quest For Glory 2. There are many old faces in QFG4 like Ad Avis from QFG2 and Baba Yaga & Bonehead from QFG1. In the beginning the mayor of the Mordavia Burgomeister Dmitri Ivanov just seems like he's a bad guy but after hero does some heroining thing he's also becoming a nice person. I rated this game with 10 points! Absolutely perfect!! I LOVE YOU QUEST FOR GLORY SERIES!!<3
