    A faithful port of the sequel to the classic adventure game, Riven delivers the beautiful world of riddles that fans know and love.

    It is a great port with a good save system, bookmarks and multitasking compatibility. The puzzles are intriguing, and the game world is immense.

    Overall, this is a solid and satisfying port of an older game that, while a little (okay, a lot) slow and slightly creaky, can still deliver a rich and meaty puzzle experience to be savored by adventure game lovers.

    Myst was, by comparison, only a small taste of what was to come in the sequel 'Riven' and now gamers can explore complex world filled with wonder and betrayal no matter where they are.

    If you liked Riven the first time around, or loved Myst and never played Riven, you'll really enjoy this blast from the past.

    Although this port does little to spruce up a decade-old adventure, enough quality shines through to make Riven a worthwhile play.

    Now the ports of Myst are all fine and dandy (except for the DS port which by NO way, shape or form fine and dandy), but it has alwaysNow the ports of Myst are all fine and dandy (except for the DS port which by NO way, shape or form fine and dandy), but it has always bothered me that Cyan Worlds never ported Riven, Uru, or Myst V. Well, ONE of those desires has been sated and it is VERY well sated. This port is true and faithful to the original Riven, which I personally think was Cyan World's TRUE masterpiece (not that Myst wasn't a masterpiece in its own right), Riven is further proof that Video Games are not just a great story telling medium, but also can be a form of art and a great form at that.
