Expert Review

  • Conclusion: As a longtime fan of the Myst series, I so badly wanted to like this game, and there are moments where you catch a tiny glimpse of what it could have been: immersive, enjoyable, and even fun. More often than not, though, it ends up being the most painful, soul-destroying, stressful, rather-stick-a-rusty-nail-in-my-eye excuse for an adventure game I have ever played.

Myst

Family Friendly Gaming
28 October 2008
  • Excerpt: A CD phenomenon spanning five games, 3 books, and an online community similar to that of World of Warcraft (though not near as violent), Myst has become widely popular. The creators of the game didn’t want to make games, but rather to make worlds. And make worlds they did; twenty-one beautiful worlds in fact. I’ll explain the Myst series a little bit right here before I get into the review (since all five of the games will be up eventually).

Myst Review

VideoGamer.com
25 October 2008
  • Excerpt: It is a testament to the rapid development of video game hardware that a title that was revolutionary to behold when it arrived on the Apple Mac some 14 years ago now looks fairly average on Nintendo's tiny handheld. Myst DS is the latest remake of the classic 1993 puzzler that still courts confusion and excitement to this day. Since the original game's launch there have been numerous versions, comics, novels, and even the recent MMO named Uru Live.

Review: MYST (Nintendo DS)

Diehard GameFAN
18 October 2008
  • Excerpt: MYST doesn’t really need an introduction. It’s a series that has been around for almost as long as I have been on this Earth. During its long tenure, it has spawned multiple sequels and a few remakes. In particular, one of these remakes was of the original MYST for the Nintendo DS, which was released in May of 2008. The game was developed by Cyan/Hoplite Research and published by Empire Interactive.

MYST review (DS)

HonestGamers
15 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Sensibilities and expectations have changed over the last 15 years, but not much else has. The game is still a collection of wondrous locales which we must navigate in the crudest of ways—through a poverty of frames such that turning around brings to mind a herky-jerky slide show. Impossibly, the game actually looks worse – far worse – than it did when it first reared its innovative head in 1993.

NDS Review - 'Myst'

WorthPlaying
30 June 2008
  • Summary: Myst is an immersive experience that draws you in and won't let you go. You enter a unique setting, venturing alone to varied times and places, the worlds that compose Myst. There are no instructions, and you encounter no living beings but soon realize your actions may help individuals who are somehow trapped in a parallel dimension.
