  1. Presto has raised the bar, taking gaming from a pastime and moving it into the realm of a legitimate art form.
  2. So essentially, the graphics, the sound, the story and the puzzles are marvellous. They all add up to one fantastic adventure game.
  3. An extremely succesful and balanced adventure, and a worthy sequel in a venerable franchise.
  4. If you are looking for a challenging and atmospheric brainteaser that places an emphasis on puzzles rather than reflexes, then this four-disc set is a good bet.

    There's no other game that has pulled me in quite as much as Exile, relieving stress in a way that no shooter ever has.
  6. Drop-dead gorgeous graphics, excellent story, talented actors, brilliant orchestral score.
  7. This is a franchise for those who like games entirely cerebral, with no need for reflexes or marksmanship.

    Myst III is a wonderful game, and extremely true to the series' puzzle game mechanic. As usual, fairly descent acting from Rand Miller asMyst 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 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.

Don't feel too bad if you have to occasionally look for hints online, especially for the final puzzle, which is in my opinion excessively cryptic. Expand
