Quest for Glory 4: Shadows of Darkness review

Computer Gaming World (1994): "Overall, then, Shadows of Darkness was a disappointment. I wanted to like this one, but the technical problems overwhelmed game play, and the numerous replays deadened any pleasure left in it. Had the game run without difficulties I'd probably have enjoyed it more. As it is, I can only suggest you approach this one with extreme caution, and be sure of what you're getting."

Retro gamer collector's corner:

Initially, the game was released in December 1993 on nine 3.5" floppy diskettes (as were many other Sierra adventures at the time) to accommodate gamers who didn't have a CD-ROM drive.

    This was a great fun game to play but the original release was way to buggy and would lock up or crash. There was a patch for it that helped out a bunch. I have no idea if it still exists somewhere.
