    When I first heard news that cyan's next game would be 3d I wasn't sure they could pull it off. I am happy to say that they did in almost every way. Anyway lets get the negative stuff out of the way. The controls take ... Read Full Review

    URU – The Californian sequel to Myst. I am a big fan of adventure games. I do not play anything but adventure games. The original Myst ruled. The Riven was a little bit off but still amazing. When I played Myst3 (by t... Read Full Review

    As time passes the Myst games continue to squandor the few things the original had right.
