    Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT what i expected, worse. This game is not the third person, action-adventure game i thought it would be. Instead, its the lonely, first person no action- impossible to beat- hard to control junk thats just worse than OK, which is what i expected of this game. First off your lonely, you never talk, and the story is not good. You start off in the middle of the island Myst where your the only thing alive, after a not-even-animated cutscene, and from there on all you do is walk around and push random buttons. The controls are weird and there is NOTHING animated pretty much. You tap in the direction you want to go with your stylus then the screen just switches over. Its hard to manuver and see where you are. This game is like those boring PC computer puzzle games like "Escape the Muesem" or something. Dont get it if your expecting a fun, adventure action game with a decent storyline.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not So Mystifying To start off, Myst is a game in which you explore an odd island. It's a very lonely experience, you're mainly left on your own and instead of using people to help you, you use inanimate objects. Myst is the main island of the game, like a hub world. You link to the other ages from Myst. The main storyline of Myst is about the brothers of Atrus, Sirrus and Achenar. Each one is trapped in a linking book and wants to tell you their story so they can be freed. Unfortunately, the transmissions are static and to fix this you have to explore the ages and get either all the red pages or all the blue pages, depending on which brother you trust. The more pages you get, the less static the book gets and the more you can hear. Once you put all the colored pages into one book, the brother will be freed. The tools added can come in use frequently. The magnifying glass is used to enlarge items. The only place you'll use it is on books though, using it on anything else will only make the picture more blurry. The camera is used to take snapshots of important clues. You can only keep one snapshot, taking another one will erase the previous. The map doesn't really do anything other than show what the island looks like, but incase you get lost it can come in handy. The typewriter is used to write down anything and the final tool is just a save feature. Each age has its own characteristics and like Myst they all have their own puzzles and mysteries. The reason why you must travel to all the ages is to gather blue and red pages. You can access ages by solving a number of required puzzles linked together on Myst island, then it will present you with a linking book on a certain part of the island which you can use to teleport. You don't have to do the ages in any specific order, making the game less linear. There are a few problems with this game that can occasionally prevent you from doing certain things. The interface isn't too good, it makes the graphics a bit more dull than they should be and there are times in the game in which you miss out on small objects that contribute to the story since they blend into the environment. It's also very glitchy - sometimes it doesn't allow you to use your tools and it will skip chunks of ages. There's also a matter of some other features. To move, you simply tap an object and you'll get closer to it and the sound quality is bad unless you're wearing headphones. The puzzles are generally challenging and sometimes the answers to them are so obvious you can't figure them out. As for replayability, there's practically none. Once you know the answers to all the puzzles, there's no point in going back and doing it all over again. Not only that, but you'll probably finish this game in less than 10 hours. Despite that, the graphics are gorgeous - at least, they would be if the interface is better. They're beautifully detailed, but usually end up as a mess of pixels with the dull color palette. This game is both easy and hard to recommend at the same time. If you've already played Myst, as I said before, there's not really a point of doing it all over again. If you're a newcomer, it's still hard to recommend as the quality isn't exactly golden. The only people who should buy this are ones who are completely desperate for a copy of the game and that's pretty much it.
