Summary

The Quest to liberate the Clouds from Alamar and Lord Xeen

The Good

The story line. It is the best in the world! As this game is related to The Darkside Of Xeen, the story line is the same. It is mysterious. Who is Lord Xeen. Is he the last one your party will be fighting? The answer is no, because King Alamar is Xeen's boss.

The music is also very good. I recommend the musics for the wilderness, castles, the Guild and the Clouds Intro.

The Bad

When the Darkside of Xeen is not installed, the 5 Pyramid Portals will not work, saying that 'the stars are not aligned'. This would be particularly frustrating for those who do not own Darkside. (I do)

The Bottom Line

This game is wonderful when combined with The Darkside of Xeen. It cannot be played to total victory quickly, because there hundreds of quests for the player to fulfill, and in each one lies a danger behind it.

Fantastic!
