Myst - The Atari Times


Just a mini-review for now
by Gregory D. George

April 12, 2001
There are really two kinds of people: Those who hate Myst, and those who are a little weird. I guess the graphics are the real star of this game, because if you're looking for fun gameplay, it surely isn't here.

Walk around a mysterious island solving puzzles that make absolutely no sense at all. This Jaguar CD is a perfect port of the PC game and has some nice graphics, strange sound effects and music. Also just like the PC version is the fact that this game is just no fun to play.

Reader Comments for Myst

Superbe jeu by french fred on 2006-10-22 17:24:59
A play which is made to dream. Very difficult for the beginning, it is necessary to play there more than five minutes to understand. What the reviewer did not have patience to have. Attractive, peaceful, subtle, splendid. Also just like the PC version, Myst is a great game.

For many hours trying to like it. I just found it extremely boring. I'll write a more full review at a later date.
question de goût by french fred on 2006-10-25 14:44:11
It is not simply a game for you. To my mind, it is really a question of taste. For me (and i'm not alone to think that), he deserves more than 90 %.
