  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.

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. In the first "Myst," you get to stay on the island and play. It was good, just not the end... although I must admit the graphics and music and animation was amazing... Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. After playing the first 2 games, this one stands out as kind of goofy with the heightened drama. The puzzles aren't horribly difficult in comparison to Riven, but aren't as odd (usually) as the ones in Myst. Now that I think about it, not much actually happens while your character progresses through the Myst games, but I really felt it in this game and I don't know why. I guess I feel as if I ended in the same place I started both literally and physically. Expand

    So a step back from Riven, but still very enjoyable.
