Myst is a great game, but this DS version is atrocious. Atrocious beyond belief and description!

Oh, where to begin.

The game is horrible. Let me just say that much. On the PC or Mac Myst is still a wonderful game but it simply does not belong on the Nintendo DS. At least in it's current form.

Midway Games made as little effort as possible in re-writing the code for this game. It's a very lazy attempt at making money from fans of the series. The graphics are below average, the close-ups with the magnifying glass use the same animation so it's all blocky and utterly without detail, the sound effects and music are crackly and distorted and for a game that requires a keen sense of observation you'll be unable to finish it since important details are blurred and ugly. The earliest example of this that you will encounter is when you sit in the chair in the observatory. In the PC or Mac versions you can see the starfields when entering dates. On this one all you see is a black screen.

Ugly; such a fitting word to describe this worthless mess of a cash-in. Please take my advice and stay well away from Myst DS. To call it an atrocity would only be too kind.
