Myst fans may be disappointed their favorite adventure series has come to an end, but they won't be disappointed with this game. "End of Ages" is a fun and sometimes tough title that's perfect for those who enjoy story, dialogue and puzzle-solving instead of action games with gratuitous violence.

If you've hated Myst from day one, End of Ages probably won't change your mind. If you've followed Myst and enjoyed the ride, then you simply have to get this final installment. And if you've never played a Myst game, you don't need to know the complete back story to enjoy End of Ages - just don't expect any nostalgic chills.

Myst V: End of Ages marks the end of the road for one of the most beloved adventure games of the modern era. The Myst series, created by Cyan, started life on the Mac, so it’s only fitting that it reaches its end here, too.

Ultimately, Cyan hasn’t let Myst go out with a bang, not even a whisper, but with a little squeal of joy. Honestly, I hope that one day we will see another addition to this franchise, not for my own fangirlish reasons, but so that we can continue to see how Myst pushes the envelope.

Many old hands can testify to the fact that if it wasn't for Myst, they would have never became gamers in the first place, missing out on the unique experience of staying up late night after night armed with only a quintuple espresso, a pen, and a pad of paper, trying to decipher one of the many rewarding puzzles that Myst is so famous for. Myst V: End of Ages, while clearly not as impressive as its predecessors, manages to provide a dignified conclusion to the 12-year-long epic which, while far from the stunning swan song everyone expected based on Cyan's brilliant history, should sufficiently satisfy most of Myst's fans and provide hours of tough puzzles in an attractive 3D world for anyone who has enough maturity and mental horsepower for the challenge.
