    People who were fans of the original and of the 7th guest should give this a try, as for those who do not like puzzles and thinking in their games, they may hate this game. The music and atmosphere is great.

    This game is not for everyone! very hard, the puzzles are next to impossible to solve, unless you have a hint book with you. Other then the great graphics and sound the game does offer much when it comes to gameplay.

  1. Even though Myst IV doesn’t break any new ground for the series, it still remains an extremely compelling adventure game with a fantastic presentation and ranks as the best of the series and one of the best of the genre.
  2. A great adventure game with a noble pedigree. Newcomers to the genre would do well to broaden their horizons by giving it a whirl.
  3. Not for the impatient type, but if you are willing to struggle through the often laborious brain-teasers, you may find the final reward surprisingly fulfilling.
