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.
Summary: Good game, in fact everything I had expected and more in most respects, but too short and too easy to make that lasting impression that I still have from Myst and Riven. I appreciate the game being a bit less difficult than Riven, which I completed only with several hints, but I think Exile was too...
Summary: It was a really great game... it tested the logisitcal side of my brain, and well as my patience. It was better than "Riven" or the first "Myst." The only reason I didn't give it a ten was because it sort of left the ending hanging. I never got to go into Releeshan, which I'd been waiting for.
Summary: THE BEST GAME SINCE PONG!Myst1 was fantstic,and so was riven.But MystIII Excile ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! Extremly realistic an scenic enviroments and 24 hour puzzels that will leave you in your seat for weeks doing nothing but scratching your head(WARNING!!!I MEAN IT!
Brilliant acting, intriguing puzzles, and 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: There should be more games like this. Games that immerse you into the environment. Seeing these worlds made me want to be there. Beautiful. Who are these designers?! And the ability to interact with the environments really make it even more realistic.
Summary: I'll start with the negatives. Exile's puzzles are not quite as challenging as those in other Myst games, and they have a "pasted on" quality about them, rather than being integrated into the environment.
