What Gamespot Users have to say about Myst

  • User Rating 3

    Rated on September 07, 2003 by zsciaeount

    Myst is the game that killed the adventure genre, and for that, I can never forgive it. In the early days of Windows and CD-ROM, a homebrew game was launched that altered the face of gaming for good....

    A masterpiece of art in the form of a computer game.

    Rated on August 31, 2009 by Marathoner_325

    I didn't played Myst on its year of release. Nor did I play it a year or two later, or even well over a decade after its release. It wasn't until several few months ago that I got to see the title "My...

    Charming

    Rated on April 09, 2008 by Zehydra

    I like this game up to the point that I got it again when I couldn't find it, even though I already knew how to beat the game at that point. This game is interesting how it is one of the first first-...

    Myst was one of the 1st, if not the 1st game of its kind. Walking around strane places and solving puzzles. Although I didnt give it a good score it was still a not too bad game. The puzzles were in...

    An immersive and clever game that revolutionized the puzzle and exploration genres. Followed by a solid sequel.

    Myst was one of the first games I ever played "hardcore". I would come home from school everyday and play Myst. It was even a family thing as my father, mother, and sister all played it and ...

    i DO like the graphics, the basis, and the challenge BUT for some reason....I just found it BORING

    Rated on April 14, 2008 by DrewTheSchu

    Typically I like a good detailed story. Typically I like a good hard challenge. Typically I like something new that comes along and gives gamers something else to play and try. So from the sound o...

    Whoa! Mystery at it's very best. Outbests any previous old-gen games by a dozen of miles. A masterpiece!

    Rated on December 11, 2006 by lightwarrior179

    Myst was always my favourite game when I actually played its sequel Riven first. I was completely drawn into the PC by Riven. And if Riven, was like that Myst literally trapped me in the PC. I spent ...

    The minute you insert the CD and begin to play, your eyes stayed glued to the screen in concentration

    Rated on May 28, 2007 by Deadfeet

    This is the game that launched adventure games full force, with a bang. The minute you insert the CD and begin to play, your eyes stayed glued to the screen in concentration. Even though it uses pre...

    Myst was the first of its kind, and even today it remains one of the few games that will draw you into its world.

    Rated on August 31, 2004 by SkyWarrior

    Very rarely is there a game that revolutionizes its industry. Myst, when it was released, was the game that had everyone buying CD drives for their computers, and it was for good reason. Myst manages ...

    Interesting game

    Rated on November 28, 2005 by MrLaskowski

    This is probably the best CD game that I own for the Jaguar CD. That is not saying much as I own about three games. The graphics in this game are amazing though. It is your classical myst game, whe...
