Myst reviews

PC Review (1994): "Myst is so fresh and original that even the most jaded adventure hack will be enchanted by it. It i visually, aurally and mentally stimulating - the first CD game I've played which scores highly in all the categories. All I can say is, "At last!""

Macworld (1998): "Less like computer games than like wonderfully illustrated novels, both Myst and Riven transport you to a world where deciphering where you are–and why you're there–is all part of the fun. While both games lead you toward a final goal, the true point of Myst and Riven is to explore the gorgeously rendered worlds and the characters that live in them. We heartily recommend both Myst and Riven to gamers and nongamers alike"

Retro gamer collector's corner:

Myst: Masterpiece Edition was an updated version of the original Myst, released in May 2000. It featured several improvements over the original game, with the images re-rendered in 24-bit truecolor instead of the original Myst's 8-bit color. The score was re-mastered and sound effects were enhanced.

    @John, you're partially right. But you have to keep in mind that the rights for Myst belong to Cyan Worlds which is the company that made the original Myst.

    Incorrectly labelled as 'not abandonware'. The original version is NOT available for purchase anywhere, and I'm not sure why you'd want to play a remastered over the superior original.
