This almost looks like an Amiga game that someone has managed to get running on a C64. If you want another reason for parting with your cash, it's also huge, and there's lots of variety in there. I was impressed - you will be too.
I don't think I would be exaggerating when I say that Myth is one of the best games to appear on the 64. It has just about everything necessary to make it a classic; amazing graphics, amazing sound, and fantastic gameplay make it a gamesplayer's dream.
Much detail has been piled into Myth and the main character movement is excellent as he kicks, punches, leaps and swipes away with an impressive array of weapons. Other sprites, too, are a visual delight. Medusa tries her best to turn you to stone, the Hydra puts all its heads to good use. Perhaps the difficulty level has been set a touch too high, but as always practice does make perfect.
System 3 add another superb arcade adventure to their catalogue. In fact, you'd have to be pretty thtupid to Myth it.
The graphics are completely excellent. And what atmosphere! Close your eyes and you could believe you're actually there. [...] So you've got to learn to fight. This is the worst part about Myth. It's a got a stupid control system, where you have to tweak the joystick in weird positions to get a decent punch or kick. It's as frustrating as dropping a 20p piece down a pavement grating. But you never know - you might get the hang of it. If you do, you'll find Myth to be completely brilliant and very, very large
