    This particular version of great game is completely unplayable. Starting from sound, which is worst i heard on the DS (hissing and popping, like a broken radio), and bad graphic resolution of images (even notes on the map are unreadable) to a greater extend of pixelhunting. It a shame, real shame.

  1. Myst is a brilliant adventure game but without the oomph to show off its gorgeous visuals and sound, this DS version is most disappointing.
  2. A good game spoiled quite badly by rough presentation and grainy graphics - not what you want when the whole thing is based on visual puzzles. [Feb 2008, p.63]
  3. Even the staunchest of Myst fans can't deny that this is a pretty poor port. Despite being faithful to the original in sound effects and atmosphere, its glitches and lack of new, DS-specific functions ultimately inhibit its worth.
