Summary: This is the 3rd episode from the 'Myst' stable and although not made by Cyan Worlds (it was made under licence by Presto Studios), it retains that 'Myst' quality. The overall appearance of the game is 'cleaner' than you would expect - the environment lacks that 'lived in' look but that doesn't detract from the sheer beauty of the game.
Summary: I started playing adventure games when they came on cassettes (yes really) and were text based, and I loved them. When Myst came along I was blown away by it. It was followed by Riven which was even better. I suppose the subsequent decline was inevitable, especially as the game rights were sold by the original developers.
Summary: I now have all 3 games Myst,Riven and Exile, was enthralled by the graphics and music, loved the puzzles, found I became very lost when I completed each one. so you can imagine my joy as the next episode arrived.
Summary: and it works on Windows XP with no problem! (You may have to download some of update problem for your display though). If you haven't played any of this series, please just try! You'll be amazed by the graphic and its atomosphere...
Summary: The sequel to Myst and Riven was nearly bound to disappoint me: Weren't the gameplay, graphics, storyline, puzzles too good to be improved? No they weren't. "Myst III: Exile" has proved true too its ancestors, but it is more than simply repeating the old succes. This game is even more beautiful and even more exiting then its predecessors. But it might disappoint some people that it hasn't really grown more challenging.
Summary: I bought my husband the collectors edition for Christmas. He hasn't played Myst before so I was very disappointed when we completed it before New Year! The graphics are amazing yes - but I'd say that he only got about 30 hours game play out of it. It was just too short.
Summary: Continuing the previouis games' brilliant atmosphere the game lives up to all expectations. The worlds are beautifully detailed and the full 360 rotation is a vast improvement. There is one big but though... and it is a BIG but. The game took me little more than 5 hours to finish. I was expecting something a bit more challenging - like Riven (for which I needed quite a few hints).
Summary: Option to load the whole game (over 2GB) on to hard disk GREAT! - no disc swapping. Option to use Hardware mode-even better As I have played Myst 1 and 2 in the past, Myst 3 looks supberb and installed with NO problems. The gameplay so far seems to be of good balance of hard and not so hard puzzles. This will be the sure alternative to Christmas television. If unfamiliar with this type of game, I would recommend the included hints guides (don't peek at the solutions!
Summary: Loved Myst and Riven so eagerly awaited the release of Myst III. Was very impressed with the new (almost)360° gameplay which made it a lot easier to play (although I had some trouble adjusting the brightness of my monitor to that specified in the set-up which made some of the scenery hard to decipher). I was actually disappointed at how simple some of the puzzles were and how quickly the game seemed to be over.
Summary: An absouloutly stunning game which overshadows its predecessors which in itself is a mighty achievement. Beautiful scenery and a stunning musical score to back the imagery up make this a must have for the fan of the Myst series. It is well worth forking out the extra cash for the collectors edition as you will find if you purchase it. In a word stunning.
