    Memorable, beautiful, challenging, and fun.

    I typically don't like non-action oriented games, but this game is an exception. I dont really need to mention all the features, as they are pretty much the same as in Riven. (never played Uru). The a...

    This is the best, most challenging, and above all, most unique adventure game ever made.

    Myst 4 is the new installment of the long running Myst series. It is definitely known for its mind bending difficulty, but it is still not known very much at all. The gameplay is definitely not ...

    Myst IV and its splendid conclusion are, indeed, revelatory.

    Rated on October 06, 2004 by fiddlecub

    The death knoll for PC adventure games has been rung quite often over the last several years, but with games like The Longest Journey and Syberia, the genre has managed to stay afloat, even with an ad...

    Thought But Still Good

    Myst VI follows in the path of all the other Myst's before it with supurbe graphics and great music and sounds. However it also follows in the series gameplay deperment too. This game is basicly a p...

    If it was not for the compatibility problems, this game would be worth it.

    Rated on October 09, 2004 by e_boulanger

    I was expecting a lot from this game, and in a way, it exceeds my expectations. The graphics are extremely beautiful (more than Myst Exile), and the immersion is almost total. This is exactly what I...

    Intense & frustrating. I was so immersed I actually flinched or jumped at times. But resorted to hints for last puzzle.

    I was swept up into the game the minute it started. The opening scene set the tone for the rest of the game. Yeesha being indulged by her father, letting her pick me up in the transport by herself, ...

    A great game spoiled by lack of adequate mouse control

    Rated on October 27, 2004 by wotno1

    Myst IV is Excellent in all respects except one. An element of silliness has been allowed in. After many hours of (happily) searching and thinking, in a beautiful environment, at a sensible and leisur...

    I should've bought another game.

    Rated on November 06, 2004 by kanderstag

    This is my first go at this type of game and I don't see any rhyme nor reason for most of these puzzles. There is a huge lack of direction, so even if you're on the right track towards solving a puzz...
