    A fitting final adventure in the Myst universe.

    Boy, the Myst phenomenon was huge back when adventure games and high-powered PCs were the rage. It was the first game to actually rival a Hollywood movie blockbuster in terms of sales. I knew about Myst, but didn't act... Read Full Review

    Something seemed to be missing

    Myst is an old friend. It had wonderful worlds you enjoyed visiting with each new installment. Each game in the series had its own memorable puzzles and environments. Myst V, while having its moments, just feels under... Read Full Review

    Myst V feels like it lets the entire series down. It's neither challenging, nor engaging and ends with a flop.

    It's not even been a year yet since Myst IV Revelation hit the store shelves and already, Cyan Worlds and their publisher Ubisoft have released the final installment of the Myst saga. This episode was supposed to let the... Read Full Review

    Yep, I am one of those millions of us who can recall a time when Myst, the 1st in a series of stunningly beautiful and compelling adventure games, "ruled the world." Myst was, arguably, the most captivating game ever cr... Read Full Review

    decent game but, it just wasn't myst

    this game was ok, but it just wasn't a myst game. it seemed more like a cheap knockoff, or worse, a last ditch effort to make some money off of a name. i'm sure that anyone who has played any of the other myst games wil... Read Full Review
