While I stress that this game is not for everyone it is quite an enjoyable experience for those looking for something different. Kudos to Acclaim for again bringing out the variety to the PlayStation. If you're looking for action it's definitely not here.
All in all, I believe the developers of Riven did the best job they could porting this game over to the PlayStation, and if you don't have access to a PC, this version of Riven is adequate, but just that.
