Summary: I loved playing Myst and Riven, and when i was playing those games it was all i thought about, and i was obsessed untill i beat them. This game did not give me the same experience, and i think ive figured out why.
Beautiful, immersive, scary, and even a little moving...

Summary: I loved Myst, but found Riven a little flat despite the beauty of its environments. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to love Myst 3: Exile best of all. The game is a perfect combination of the dreamlike world of Myst, with the attention to detail offered by Riven, and with a really exciting...
Summary: I just finished Myst 3: Exile and I'm still in a trance. Several aspects of this game are extremely brilliant and combine to make this one of my favorite experiences sitting at a computer: 1) The music. The Myst 3 soundtrack contains echoes of motifs from Myst and Riven.
Brilliant Acting, Ingriguing Puzzles, & Great Graphics

Summary: First of all, I was actually able to solve the puzzles on my own. With Myst and Riven, I had a bunch of trouble understanding the puzzles, and when I finally found the solutions on the internet, I realized that I would never have figured those puzzles out by myself! Exile is so much better.
Summary: This game is worth getting just for the music. I had searched aroud a bit before buying, got all hyped up to buy it only to find that it does not work on Windows XP. The support website certifies this and also says they have no plans to fix this. IF YOu HAVE XP DO NOT BUY THIS!
A great game. A stunning adventure that keeps you riveted!

Summary: Let me begin by saying that the first two games in this series, Myst and Riven were great titles. Adventure games that told involving stories and emphasized thinking, patience and puzzle-solving rather than power-levelling and killing everything you see.
Summary: Myst III was truly awesome experience. From the great graphics with very high detail to an awesome soundtrack, this game was better than Riven. I read one of the reviews that said he beat this game in one day. No way unless you used a cheat guide.
Summary: I thought Riven was incredibly gorgeous, and it was for its time; Myst: Exile, however, blows it utterly out of the water. There were times when I was laughing aloud because I was so enjoying the scenery in this game. Some of the soundtracks are just magical, too.
The graphics and sound are there; the magic isn't.

Summary: Innumerable are the reviews of Myst and Riven in the gaming press and on the Web. Generally, reviewers either loved the games or hated them; the haters usually saw both Myst and Riven as nothing more than pretty slide shows lacking in any other substance.
Haven't finished yet, but couldn't be much happier with it!

Summary: This has got to be the most engaging game I've played since "Starship Titanic." I've seen many reviews that complain that the game is too "easy" or "hard," and I think that's missing the point. I'm finding many of the puzzles difficult, but in the end *they all make logical sense.
