    Riven for iPad is everything the game was in 1997, but more. The tactile nature of touchscreen gaming adds a degree of inquisitive immersion that a mouse and keyboard can't.

    While nostalgic fans of hidden objects and old adventures might like this, Riven shows its age a little too much to be widely recommendable.
