Summary

Slow gameplay, barely adequate graphics, enjoyable new age soundtrack.

The Good

I would have to say that the only thing that impressed me about this game was the music.

The Bad

There were enough things I didn't like about this game that I did not finish it. There are so many high quality games out there, and only so many hours I am willing to invest in playing PC games, that I no longer have the patience for anything less than excellence. The graphics were about average. The time lag between click and response was too long for this simple of a game. The game crashed several times in the Ireland section. Some puzzles had insufficient clues which made them too difficult.

The Bottom Line

Beyond Atlantis is a descendant of Myst but is in no way up to that level of artistic, technological, or storytelling excellence. The graphical quality is poor. The story did not gain my interest and as a result, I did not care to invest my time in solving the puzzles.
