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 QFG series! And truly a masterpiece!
20 April 2004 | by radicalfaith360See all my reviews

This is most definitely my #1 favorite game for the personal computer! It takes place in Mordavia of Transylvania where the townsfolk are very suspicious and paranoid of the recent horrors that have been taking place. As the hero, it's your job to set things right and earn the villager's trusts. I wont spoil the game for you but it's worth playing! The graphics are absolutely beautiful considering they're hand-painted! And the game is nearing a decade old to date. The storyline is awesome and full of mystery that urges you to play more to find out what's really going on and who you can really trust. The music is sensational and nicely recorded. And the game itself has voice-overs the whole way through with a killer cast including John Rhys-Davies, Jennifer Hale, Russi Taylor, Diane Pershing and Many more!!! And the characters are very vibrant and fun to talk to so you never get bored with them along with excellent replay value which every Action/RPG should be blessed with. And puzzles that give you just the right challenge to make you think but not enough for you to strain for the answer. Everything is very well played out and all the cards are laid right on the table with this title. (As long as you know what you're doing.) If you can get a hold of a 486 PC with Windows 95 installed and working audio, you will have a blast and one of the best times of your life with PC gaming. I also forgot to mention that the day/night system is SWEET!!! Different events occur at different times of the day which is a huge help to layout of the game's plot. If you haven't played Quest for Glory: Shadows of Darkness, you don't know what you're missing! 10/10!!! It deserves it!
