This isn't realMYST, its the original PC myst ported ...
25 February 2015
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.
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.
Summary: This game is terrible. I thought it'd be a nice reboot of the old PC game but nope...garbage. Graphics are ridiculously pixelated, the icons on the menu don't do anything, words on the map are unreadable, and the point&click is difficult to maneuver. And to top it all off, its not even 3D... There's a reason it was $10 at gamestop.
Summary: So this is what makes this port a failure. It doesn't use the 3d function of the 3ds or the touch screen function. Using the 3d screen and the joystick to navigate (which is very uncomfortable) is one sensible compromise, as would be using the lower screen as the main for navigation since its touch. It's the worst of both worlds! The port should not exist; buy it for someone you hate and thats about it.
Summary: I always wanted to try Myst so when I saw this on the eShop I couldn't resist and got it. Boy, boy, boy, boy... Boy... That was a big mistake, the greatest mistake ever. Not only is this game completely unplayable, it looks horrible and it FEELS unfinished (and that's got to say something for such an old game!). The info on the eShop mentions this is a 3D remastered version of the all time classic... Well, NO!
