Being one of the most influential and popular games of all time, it's wonderful to see Myst brought back to life on a new platform for a new audience. You can't blow up Nazis or aliens, but if you've never tried one of adventure gaming's greatest classics then this remake of Myst is definitely a good place to start, even though it suffers slightly in being confined to its new portable home. Once again players have been kept from hosting memorials in honour of the point 'n' click genre and I wouldn't be surprised to see portable versions of the other Myst titles should this one do well enough. The original classic has certainly found firm footing with the PSP and if you're tired of all the action oriented games of today then Myst on the go is definitely a palatable and refreshingly different cocktail.
Myst on the PlayStation Portable is actually a good port, despite the load times and the occasional consternation with the controls. The refashioned visuals for the higher resolution widescreen look nice but without completely ditching the classic PC/Mac look, which has its charm; although, it would have been nice to have gotten realMyst instead. This game is slow and ponderous, but that is by design and a reason it feels rewarding to actually solve an age. Give it a go if you want to see what all of the hubbub was about in 1993 or if you appreciate retrogaming.
C'est sûr que Myst n'est pas tout frais et qu'on sent le fossé technique trahissant ses douze ans d'âge, pourtant l'aura du jeu reste intacte. Cette version PSP n'est peut-être pas indispensable pour ceux qui connaissent déjà cette pièce maîtresse du jeu d'aventure, les autres se doivent d'y jeter un oeil. On appelle ça la Culture.

If you're at all interested in puzzle games, you owe it to yourself to check out Myst. For those who've already played it, it's like taking a trip down memory lane... and stumbling over every stone in the path.
It's outrageous how lazy some developers can be and how they hope to be able to lean on a reputation. You can say EA often just updates their annual games, but these updates give better graphics and a (sometimes only slight) adjusted gameplay that makes it in many cases (like Tiger Woods 07) worth buying. This is hardly the case with Myst PSP that not only is an insult to the consumer but also to the series itself.
