Summary: I had only played the original trilogy, but I've enjoyed this one. My only criticism is that it's a bit limited on environments compared to Riven and Exile. There's only four major areas here, but they seem very small.
Summary: Ok, I was fascinated by the original Myst back when it came out. However, after awhile it got boring, too many puzzles and, for me, not enough storyline aspects. I have the same feelings about Riven and Exile. Myst Revelation is much better from this standpoint, and the in-game journal/camera makes things much easier as far as getting the clues one needs (I'm horrible at sketching).
Summary: As a Myst fan, I was understandably fairly excited to play this game, though very concerned it wouldn't work on my sub-par laptop. I've heard of a lot of people having technical problems with this game, but even with a laptop without the required specs I did fine. A tad slow, but fine. The greatest aspect of this game is probably the details. Birds fly around, water ripples when you touch it, and everything can be tapped and makes an appropriate sound when you do so.
Summary: First, the good. "Myst Revelation" has absolutely stunning graphics, by far the best in the Myst series. "Immersive" does not do justice to the depth and quality of the worlds presented in this game. Plenty of small touches, such as birds and wind stirring plants and leaves, add to the overall effect of the game. Even on my relatively slow graphics card (an nVidia GeFroce 4000 with 64MB DDR), the graphics were wonderful.
Summary: Before I bought this I read reviews stating the fact the game may not run on my machine if used in a DVD-ROM drive. I knew that I would not have a problem with that because I put it in a cd-rw burner that had a dvd read combo. Its a large game when you use the full install option(8 gigs). DIFICULTY: I thought this game was really hard at times!
Summary: I have been a big fan of the Myst games since I played the original on my brand new 486pc. I have played them all, and I am very happy to be able to play the latest offering. When Myst IV was initially released for the PC in 2004, I was upset to discover that my current machine would not be able to run it. Therefore I was surprised, and greatly pleased, to find that Myst IV was released for the Xbox, and at such a great price to boot.
Summary: I loved all the Myst games (except Uru), and I've just started playing Revelation. This game is as sumptious in detail as the other versions, and full of neat tricks. A warning though, this game will probably not play on your computer if you have a DVD burner (the infamous copyright). Another tricky issue I had right up front was that it I could not play the game until I loaded the correct "CD". Of course, the game comes loaded on two DVDs, and no CD is included.
