  1. The framerate suffers in the conversion, but the solid puzzles and great soundtrack stay true to the computer release. [Oct 2002, p.84]
  2. Some players will surely find it all rather dull or frustrating. Still, this relaxed pace can be refreshing.
  3. 65
    It will captivate you temporarily with its novel look and gameplay, but when the story starts to get interesting, the clunky controls and molasses-like pace of the thing will leave you frustrated. The game runs far too slow to be enjoyable.
  4. It is sad to see that a game of this caliber has not made the jump into this generation of gameplay.
  5. 20
    It's in your best interest to steer clear of this one and wipe your memory of anything even remotely associated with it.
  6. 73
    Decent graphics and superb sound put you right in the middle of an engaging story (which stems all the way from the first Myst), but the horrendous and continuing loading issues will have you severely distracted.
  7. Does it get frustrating? Oh my, yes...But that's Myst for you. [Dec 2002, p.164]
  8. Just be ready for some seriously challenging puzzles that will test both your patience and brain power. [Nov 2002, p.52]
  9. A prettier and slicker version of the same old “Myst” you’ve either loved/hated for close to a decade now.

    Well I loved playing Myst and Riven so its no surprise that I enjoyed this game. Sure its not action packed or amazingly fluent, but the involving story, creative worlds, and challenging puzzles make for a solid game. If you loved the first two you'll love this one. Otherwise RENT IT FIRST. Full Review »
