    Meh. It's a mediocre game anyway. Slapping a different publisher logo on it won't fix that.

    its such a great game but this is the port not worth playing, at all, for any reason.

    too bad they didn't fix all the problems like the crappy display, blurry graphics, and impossible to read clock face numbers.

    Myst and its sequels are truly great games. This was such a horribly done port; the images weren't resized well and all the added features either don't work or remain simply useless. It's a shame too, as this could have been awesome on the DS. I still hope to see a Riven port one day, but not if it's as badly done as this one.

    A game that just had a chance to be good, if it wasn't so weak for a DS game. It's like they used screenshots from the real game, fogged them up and made a slideshow with them, then turn it into a game.

    Supposedly, this adds an extra age and improves the graphics. I don't know if the previous version had the extra age.....in fact, I never played the previous version to know if there really is any difference between that one and this one beyond the publisher, but the boxart says there are improvements, not to mention the product link seems to suggest that it is improved over the previous version:

    I played this on PC (which was the first game released on CD for PC, if I remember correctly) way back when it originally came out.....even with the new age added I don't think I could tolerate playing through it again, especially if it's as bad as people say on the DS.

    They added Rime to the 2D picture version? Huh, it'd be worth checking out if so.

    The PC game was awesome when it first came out, but to go back and try to play it now is a nightmare. As for the DS port, I think I will be passing on it.

    One good thing that helps explain this game tremendously (indirectly of course!) is the book series that was made. Myst: Book of A'trus, Myst: Book of Ti'Ana, and Myst: Book of D'ni. All three are a very good read.

    there was a game with a similar problem... the lead char was a woman, there were some movie cutscenes and all but bad controls and u dont know what to do
    its strange as to how the developers can miss something as important as this

    I know, right? Damn weeaboos! [​IMG]

    As for this game: I don't notice anything new in it compared to the previous version, what are these guys talking about? Did they perhaps fix a typo and now slap a big 'NEW' logo on the cover?

    The dramatic of the past?

    I never played the previous DS version (only the original PC version), but the screen shots on their site looks like they ran a sharpen filter on the graphics rather than going back and rescaling them from the originals. You'd think if they actually "remastered" them that they would have gotten rid of the black border around the images and made them a little larger.
