    I had never played any Myst games before, but my mom bought the game, and we started playeng, and now i'm hooked.

    Myst III is a wonderful game, and extremely true to the series' puzzle game mechanic. As usual, fairly descent acting from Rand Miller as Atrus, and a surprise in Brad Dourif (who played Wormtongue in Lord of the Rings) as the exile. I won't get into too much detail, since whatever in this game isn't story is plot, but you will once again find yourself solving all sorts of puzzlesMyst III is a wonderful game, and extremely true to the series' puzzle game mechanic.

I won't get into too much detail, since whatever in this game isn't story is plot, but you will once again find yourself solving all sorts of puzzles involving light, kinematics, power and energy, and a paradise. The only real complaint I have is that the 360 degree camera is a little disconcerting at first, especially after the immobile camera of Myst and Riven: The Sequel to Myst. But you get used to it pretty fast and I soon appreciated the full range of motion it gives.

    By the way, I think the entire Myst series is very underrated and extremely under-played. I would definitely recommend the entire series to any casual puzzle gamer.

    This would be great if redone with uru type graphics etc.

    It was a really great game... it tested the logisitcal side of my brain, and well as my patience. It was better than "Riven" or the first "Myst." The only reason I didn't give it a ten was because it sort of left the ending hanging. I never got to go into Releeshan, which I'd been waiting for. In "Riven," you fall back to your world.

    Good game, in fact everything I had expected and more in most respects, but too short and too easy to make that lasting impression that I still have from Myst and Riven. I appreciate the game being a bit less difficult than Riven, which I completed only with several hints, but I think Exile was too easy. I finished it in just a few evenings.

    You could not ask for more but the bottom line will be that this is a slow moving adventure game and will possibly appeal only and primarily to avid ‘adventure’ gamers!
  2. If "Riven" was impressive, this is extraordinary. The images are smooth and crisp and detailed. Clouds look like clouds, rock looks hard, water is fluid and deep, and sharp looks like it would hurt.

    If stunning, real-time rendered visuals and significantly improved functionality are any evidence, the third time is indeed the charm.
