World of Xeen is the result of the combined Might and Magic IV: Clouds of Xeen and the Might and Magic V: Dark Side of Xeen into one Might and MagiC directory. Clouds of Xeen was released in 1992 while the Dark Side of Xeen was released a year later.
With the World of Xeen, you could travel between the two games at any part of the game. This means you could explore the Clouds of Xeen and then switch to the Dark Side of Xeen without the need to finish the first game first.
The World of Xeen also presents you with a new main quest and an extra side quest that is not available if you just played the Clouds game or the Dark Side game. Transitions between the two games are seamless you won’t feel as if you are switching to another game. You really feel like you are playing a bigger, enhanced single game.
You will see Crodo, the adviser of the King of Xeen, in your dream where he will inform you that he has been imprisoned and need your help. The person responsible for this evil deed is Roland. Aside from imprisoning the King’s trusted adviser, Roland has also managed to convince the King to search for the magical artifact called Sixth Mirror at all costs. This
means that the King has neglected his Kingdom and has used much of the Kingdom’s resources to look for the said magical artifact.
There are actually many worlds of Xeen that were meant to be united in the future. The time for unification is upon the different worlds because the pyramids of travel are already open allowing people to travel between the two different worlds.
You get your friends together to discuss the recent events in the world of Xeen and the information that has been relayed to you from Crodo through your dreams. Your lead this group as you travel through the World of Xeen and interact with items and other characters. You now have to solve the mystery of the magical artifact and make sure that the kingdom remains intact.
The game is a lot of fun because it is extensive and allows you many, many hours of gaming fun. The graphics are beautiful especially when you consider that the two games were released in the early 90s. The environment has sufficient details and the characters are able to express the condition/ situation they are in.
