Summary

A wonderful game that should be in every gamers shelf

The Good

Beautiful graphics, great sound and CHALLENGING puzzles. Even if you don't have I clue of where you are going you are still going to be amazed of the beautiful environment. If you didn't play Myst yet it doesn't matter you won't be confused at all and in riven there is people you can have contact with unlike Myst. Riven comes pact with 5 cd's.

The Bad

The game is very difficult and the puzzles are unrelated to the plot.

The Bottom Line

You gotta give this game a try but if your the kinda guy that doesn't like thinking stay away from this game if not then your in for a good time.
