Summary: This isn't realMYST, its the original PC myst ported into the ds. The controls are ridiculous. It has a mouse on the screen, even when it's a touch screen. Also, the resolution have been downgraded and one can't read any of the documents you are supposed to use to know what to do.
They probably would of been better off utilizing the 3ds touchscreen

Summary: Ok first off don't listen to most of the negative reviewers because they obviously have never played the original and thus have no idea what they're looking at. So jaded gamers aside this IS the original in nearly every respect save for a few missing animations. Now I do I have one grief about this and that's the controls. The fact that the pointer automatically snaps back to the middle of the screen due to the use of the stick makes it sometimes challenging to play.
Summary: Take a beloved title that took risks in its own time, and port it to a platform that audiences would LOVE to see it done on. That's about as low-risk as it gets for game publishing. What that is NOT is an excuse to slap together something THIS half-assed and pawn it off as being any sort of product worth purchasing. First off, calling it "3D" title for the 3DS is a blatant lie. There is not a single 3D effect to be found. It doesn't even USE the device's 3D capability.
Summary: I expected a game that was ported to be compatible with 3DS. This game wasn't even in 3D, the graphics were entirely unchanged from what I assume the PC version was, and the playability was awful. The controls are clunky and at times frozen. The description of this game was misleading and I regret purchasing it. I put it down after ten minutes of fighting with the controls.
Summary: Long standing fan of the series, but holy heck this is trash. I picked this up from GameStop the other day for $8 and it wasn't worth it. The visuals are so pixelated and blurred that on my 3DS-XL it's just barely possible to make out any of the text in the game. Plus, your controls are you move the hand obj around with the stylus like a mouse. I think they literally ported the original game, and then compressed all the images so much that they're basically useless.
