Shadow Of Power
First Impression Oh My God, this game has more programming effort than any game I've ever seen! This game looks Zelda 3-ish! Hmm, too bad my sound card wont play the music. :( The features are great, I typed in 'WisdomDude' and it allows 5 players, cool!
What It's Like Well, it's Zelda 3-ish. When I think about it, it's almost exactly like Zelda, and it's like playing Zelda 3, and really nothing else. It's also like playing Zelda 1 though 3 all in one! Lol I can't honestly think this game has a mixture of other games than Zelda.
Other things you should know Well, the graphics aren't fully theirs, because I noticed some of LordQB's material on there and that's kinda low, since it's not brand graphics like Zelda, and Zelda 3 graphics are ok to rip, since it doesn't take a retarded monkey to figure out where they came from. As for the music, it's not theirs, and it's not going to work, unless you have an AWE 32-bit SB card. I heard this game has a bug with saving and loading maps, so if you want, go to and see if you can find the patch for it.

The rating
Graphics These graphics aren't fully theirs, but they do make the game looks so good I have to give them a 4. Now, if I'm supposed to judge graphics based on if it's theirs, or if it's good looking graphics, I would just have to give them a 4 out of 5 on this, so I don't get bitched at for favoring what I'm supposed to give.
Sound The sounds are top-notched. I like the sound effects, and I really don't care for the profanity in it, but I give it a 5.
Plot/Story This is what I did, I got the German story of this game, and I went to, and translated it from German to English. As I was reading this, Altavista doesn't always make it gramatically correct. It's well.. a mediocre story, where Holgar must find the jewels, and help this crying girl, since evil has taken over. Honestly, I maybe wrong, but for now, I'm giving it a 4.
Gameplay/Control Actually, this is the part of the game I love! It has LOTS of magic spells, weapons, misc items, and it allows you to save up to 5 players! The great thing about this, is it's fun to play with the magic spells.
Overall Impression Well, even if the game isn't fully theirs, I still like it lots! I mean, I played this game for 3 hours, and I haven't even beaten it yet. Right now, I would honestly have to say that THIS IS THE BEST RPG EVER!
23/25 * 4 =
