Might and Magic: Clouds of Xeen
Description official description
The evasive guardian Sheltem has once again escaped from relentless Corak and the six heroes of Terra who were helping him. The brave adventurers tried to pursue him on his journey through space, but were unable to reach the destination. Meanwhile, the distant world of Xeen is experiencing new troubles. A mysterious villain known as Lord Xeen has imprisoned Crodo, the local oversees, and is plotting to execute control over the land. A band of local adventurers becomes involved in the conflict and get to the bottom of the mystery.
Clouds of Xeen is the fourth installment in the Might and Magic series, and a follow-up to Isles of Terra. It utilizes the same graphics and interface as its predecessor, and is generally very similar to it in structure and gameplay. Among new features is the possibility to keep notes recording quests and important locations in the game, a separate inventory section for quest items, and two difficulty levels.
All over the game's world there are pyramids which work as teleporters as soon as part five of the series, Darkside of Xeen is installed. The two games can be played simultaneously, merging into World of Xeen, which includes multiple cross-over quests in both installments.

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.
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.
