No new puzzles were added and none of the old ones were changed, which means former players will breeze through this in no time. Likewise, thumb-twitchers should look elsewhere for their next purchase. But first-timers and puzzle fans will revel in this beautifully crafted game. There will be no Myst-ery to this game's success on the Saturn!

A priori, on peut se demander pourquoi un tel jeu voit le jour sur une console où la plupart des softs ne sont que des simulateurs de course ou des jeux de baston ! A posteriori, on se dit que lorsqu'il est particulièrement bien fait, pourquoi pas ?! Alors, dans ce cas, les fanas seront comblés !

Myst erschien vor zwei Jahren exklusiv für den Macintosh und avancierte in Windeseile zum Klassiker. Trotz des weltweiten Erfolges ist das Adventure umstritten: Im Gegensatz zu den meisten Konkurrenzprodukten besteht es zu 95 Prozent aus Grafik- und Sound-Daten, das eigentliche Programm ist verschwindend klein. Ihre Interaktion ist somit eingeschränkt: Sie klicken auf die Gegenstände Ihrer Wahl, verschieben mit dem Cursor Hebel und Schalter und bewegen sich via Richtungspfeil. Die Traumlandschaft besteht aus Standbildern, die einer beneidenswerten Phantasie entsprangen, aber nur selten animiert sind. Lediglich die unzähligen Soundeffekte (rauschen, knattern und poltern) beleben die etwas sterile Fantasy-Welt. Die Rätsel sind vielfältig und sprechen sowohl den logisch, als auch musisch begabten Menschen an.

I think you can probably guess how I feel about Myst's game play. I'm not against thinking through an adventure; I'm against sleeping through one. Myst has never worked for me but obviously a lot of people love it. If you're absolutely compelled to try it, please do me a favor and rent before you buy. And then drop me a thought, I'm curious to hear what you think of the game.

When Myst was released on PC, it was something of a hit - mainly down to its depth and clever puzzles. The Sega Saturn version retains every bit of that because it is essentially the same game. However, the basic premise of the title didn't really excite the team and it's certainly not one of the reasons why you would want to buy a Sega Saturn.
