Den Programmierern ist es gelungen, überraschende Momente mit wohl dosierten, aber gezielten Soundeffekten zu einem Horrortrip zu kombinieren, der dem User so manchen Schreck durch die Glieder fahren läßt. Ich bin sicher: Wenn Alfred Hitchcock sich für Adventures begeistert hätte, dann hätte er an SHADOWGATE seine wahre Freude gehabt!
Shadowgate is enthralling, exciting, interesting and extremely frustrating. In one location, with several closed coffins, the atmosphere is so strong that opening each coffin becomes literally a test of nerves - you know that death may lurk inside any of the caskets. An adventure which can evoke that kind of emotion within the player has to be a winner, regardless of how many instant deaths one meets.
