As a computer entertainment experience, there's been almost nothing like Myst. The game's success lies in its beautifully rendered scenery and lush soundtrack, a pervasive sense of mystery (hence the name), and overall atmospheric tension.
From the opening monologue, we are drawn into a world where we - as the player - must not only familiarize ourselves with the environment, but must even determine the goal of the very game itself. Although the ostensible objective is the solution of the puzzles, the actual purpose for playing Myst is the exploration of the very real world that the creators of the game have made.
Unfortunately, much of this atmosphere and wonder is lost on the modern computer gamer, used to more "twitch"-style 3D shooters. If you are looking for a game to challenge your adrenal gland, look elsewhere. If, however, you appreciate a sense of dramatic atmosphere and love the sense of discovery exploring a new and uncharted world, you won't find much better than this game.

I have a hard time categorizing Myst as a "game." It feels more like a book. If you don't like books...you won't dig it.

Many games play more like a TV show, where the storyline is handed to you up front and your actions fill in the minute details. Not so with Myst, which gives you an enigmatic cinematic opening (which, though it's related to the game, explains nothing at all -- but it does establish an intriguing atmosphere) and then simply places you in an unfamiliar location. The existential search begins: Where am I? How did all these curious things get here, and what do they do? And why am *I* here? Only careful exploration ("attentive," that is -- there's no danger of harm, though some scenes do suggest it) yields the clues, some obvious and many subtle, which assemble into an understanding of the story -- a bona fide *story* -- of the situation you're in.

Myst isn't a perfect game, but it's a truly compelling story -- if, as I said, you're into stories. (If you loved Nick Bantock's mysterious, romantic story/art book "Griffin and Sabine," then Myst is for you without question.) If you absolutely require a more straightforward introduction but still like a sense of intrigue and brilliant, inventive puzzles to solve, then go straight for the sequel game, Riven. But I'd still suggest giving Myst a try first.

Myst was the first home computer game to win a broad based audience. It was a rage in the mid-1990's when it first came out, and it has intrigued game players and non-game players alike. Selling like grandma's homemade hotcakes in a lumberjack camp, Myst won Ubisoft, the manufacturer, awards and of course lots and lots of money.

Myst is different in that it is not a shoot 'em up arcade-style game. You are "dumped" on an island and you have to figure out various puzzles to "win" the game. The puzzles are challenging and engaging. They will hook you into the game and keep you playing for hours of mental stimulation - explain it as "getting your mental exercise" when your spouse complains that you are spending too much time in front of the computer screen.

One final note, some gamers may not like this style of a game, as it is an intellectual pursuit rather than a "test your reflexes" game. You may spent hours looking for little clues to solve a complex puzzle. You also have to learn to use objects and machines and see what effect they have on the environment. It is very involved, and unless you are motivated to solve puzzles in this fashion, you will quickly become frustrated with the game and quit. It may take months to figure out the game and reach the end! Some simply do not have the patience to play a game and have to pour so much time and energy into it. If you need to solve your games instantly for gratification, then this is not the game for you.

Myst was the first computer game I really came to admire for its complexity and interest factor. The graphics were mind-blowing when the game first came out, but now appear amateurish compared to recent releases in the Myst series. Still, it stands the test of time and is a good place to start for beginning computer gamers.

WARNING: Holiday season is upon us - The DVD version of this game (MYST) as well as its sequals EXILE and RIVEN do not work with Windows XP especially if you have Quicktime 3.0 or higher. We contacted the company though thier website and they have no intention of upgrading or providing drivers for said games to accomodate users. By their own suggestion at CYAN and RED-ORB and PRESTO is if you have purchased these games and they do not work take them back to the store and see if you can get your money back. Unless the compatibilty with any game produced by this company specifically says it is XP compatible DO NOT PURCHASE IT> Thanks

This game was one of the first I've ever played on the computer. This was several years ago. In all the years that have passed, I have seen nothing that comes close to the quality of Myst in the supposed genre that it created. Myst IS the genre. The graphics may have been surpassed due to the evolving technology, but I am still amazed at the quality of the breath-taking visuals to this day. The prospect of the original idea of not having any music practically horrified me because of how much the immersive soundtrack adds to the experience that is Myst. The plot unfolds like an interactive mystery novel in which you've been plopped right in the middle of. Definitely a must for those who are still human and would like to immerse themselves in an experience that has made Myst the best selling game of all time.
