Summary: Although it's quite a short game at around 6 hours or so, even then it feels like the substance is spread too thinly, so that there is a lasting impression of tedium. The art is very nice and the graphics still hold up okay in 2013. The story is nice, though the exposition is rather clumsy most of your interaction with the main character comes through rather unconvincing journal entries scattered around the game.
Summary: Graphics are blurry, puzzle bits are spread around (so wandering around writing everything you see down is necessary to solve pretty much every puzzle). So a step back from Riven, but still very enjoyable.
Summary: Myst III is a wonderful game, and extremely true to the series' puzzle game mechanic. As usual, fairly descent acting from Rand Miller as Atrus, and a surprise in Brad Dourif (who played Wormtongue in Lord of the Rings) as the exile. I won't get into too much detail, since whatever in this game isn't story is plot, but you will once again find yourself solving all sorts of puzzles involving light, kinematics, power and energy, and a paradise.
Summary: This game honestly sucks. Though the graphics are really detailed and the sounds are identical to real life. The gameplay sucks. It's a lot of logic, and I have never had enough patience to get past the first level. I don't even know what I'm suppose to do. I wouldn't ever recommend this to anyone....
Summary: What the heck? How are Myst and Riven the best selling games on any system? I'll give it that at the time it was released, Myst was the best selling PC game ever. But come on, Super Mario Bros. 3? That sold more than twice as many units. There were also multiple SNES games that outsold it. I'm so confused.
