    There are so many missed opportunities and strange control choices that it considerably drags the quality down.

    Takes what was once a wonderful experience and makes so many development mistakes that even Myst's wonderful story and puzzles can't fix it. Not even the Myst faithful should pick this up.

    A true classic gone horribly to seed. It'd be funny if it wasn't heartbreakingly sad. [Nov 2012, p.99]

    If there's just one thing at which this particular version of Myst succeeds, it's serving as a prime example of what not to do when porting a classic game to a modern system.

    Myst is still one of my favorite games and it should have been excellent on the 3DS. The main issues for me in this version are that it'sMyst is still one of my favorite games and it should have been excellent on the 3DS. The main issues for me in this version are that it's hard to move the cursor with the analog stick so it's hard to push little buttons on the screen at times. It's hard to see small details that you need to click on at times and the books which are a HUGE part of the game are almost impossible to read because of the low resolution. Over all the game is still fun especially if you played it originally on the PC for someone new this is a pretty poor way to introduce yourself to the game and will probably get frustrated after a few hours of playing.
