Gamers wanting a unique puzzler for the Jag CD will be enthralled by Myst. However, those who already know and love this game have no reason to return.

Myst ist ein Spiel an dem sich die Geister scheiden. Die einen sagen langweiliger Grafikblender…die anderen geniales Rätselspiel. Es ist definitiv kein Titel den man uneingeschränkt empfehlen kann. Wer auf Action steht, Humor sucht oder eine pompöse Story a la MGS2 erwartet sollte einen (sehr) großen Bogen um Myst machen. Ist man auf der Suche nach einer Herausforderung und scheut keine harten Rätsel ist man schon eher richtig. Das Gameplay ist zeitlos, nur die Technik hat etwas gelitten. Die Jaguar Version braucht sich jedenfalls trotzdem nicht vor den anderen Umsetzungen zu verstecken. Im Gegenteil, sie spielt sich sogar noch etwas flotter!

Myst might be the best game in the world, but I'll never know, and neither will the other gamers out there who prefer a little action in their adventures.

What is this? It's the worst game ever made, that's what it is!

That's quite a claim, that's what it is. But I will back it up. As there is nothing, NOTHING quality about this game. It wasn't made by game players, it wasn't made for game players, and it certainly wasn't bought buy gamers! Yet, with the Who Wants to be a Millionaire PC game (note, also not bought by gamers), Myst is the single best selling CD Rom game in history.
