IMPORTANT: If Riven is crashing for you, make sure to do the following:

1. Start the game
2. Alt+tab out and open up the Task Manager
3. Under the 'Processes' tab, find Riven and right click it
4. Select 'Go to details' on the right click menu
5. Right click Riven again
6. Select 'Set affinity'
7. Set it to run on only one core by unchecking all of the boxes except for one

This should solve the problem of it crashing after a few minutes of play, but you will have to do this every time you start up the game.

Besides that, there's not much else to say. Riven is a great game, there's a reason it's considered a classic.

This is a review of Riven (the sequel to MYST) Steam version. I say this first because i've already played the game originally in 1997 and certain things had changed for this review (alltough the game essentially is the same from 1997 just compiled to dowload online).

I loved the game when i first played it (almost 20 years ago by now). It was a very interesting sequel to Myst and added many things to the story (in fact, it had a story!) You meet ghen, catherine and again Atrus. There is something going on at least! that is the main thing i guess.
The game came out in 5 cd rom discs wich was pretty notable for that time, lots of data and videos. More than 3gb of data for 1997 was a heavy thing.
The puzzles are very hard, it is still hard now,but, even if you use a walkthrough it still is rewarding to find out how the world works, how the story of atrus and his family and the linking books unfolds.

The music is the best. Pretty much half of the experience in this game (the first one and this one in fact) is the music. Totally amazing, complements the graphics so well and what happens on screen at times. The graphics by the way, were so amazing in 97 that, still, to this day in some places, they still seem to be made last week. Of course, in general they've became old, but still, this is a 20 years old game!!! Is like watching a movie from 1996 and thinking that the special effects are not so bad...

Now, that was my review from the original game. Now to some things from actual steam/gog version i am reviewing and why i post a negative review.

While i was happy to be able to have a newer build of this classic game, wich i can download from steam and install in modern OS everytime i want. i did encountered certain problems, wich are not acceptable even if it is an old game.
First, the game crashes in certain contexts, certain situations. Like for example clicking too fast when moving around (wich of course didn't happen in the original version) While i know that if i don't click too fast i will probably avoid these crashes, still is something that should be taken care of. Specially knowing that the creators and the company of this game (cyan) still exists and should be made aware of this and take care of the problem. Second, in certain situation when saving, your game can crash, during the saving screen... (if you don't use the save buttons).
Also, third, and most catastrophic, there is a scene in game, where you have to turn on a light in a passage. When you do that, and you turn around, either the game crashes or takes you to a previous screen.... this is unavoidable. There is anyway, a way to continue through the passage after turning on the light (without crashing) so i finished the game luckily, but i already knew what to do there, i don't know what i could have done if it were my first time playing it, and didn't knew what to do there. This is something that happens at least in a win 7 64 environment and should be fixed, if not they are essentialy selling you a broken game. This is why i will not recommend this game, at least this version on steam and gog (the same). It is a shame, there was an interesting game...somewhere, there, but now it is too old, and its broken in someplaces so... (you could say that, ironically, the game, the same as the fifth age in riven, have become full of fissures sad...)

Riven is a sequel to Myst, an old school click adventure game that revolves solving intricate puzzles and exploring surreal worlds created from linking books.

First off let me tell you that Riven is not revised for modern hardware, as such, some feature set is very archaic. The save menu operates like a word document save menu. The resolution is stuck at a piddly 640x480 resolution, this makes playing the game on modern monitors an absolutely awful visual experience. To makes matter worst, the game cannot be set to windowed mode without some major .exe hex coding voodoo. That set aside, the game is still worth playing. After all with the limitation of Riven’s game engine, which is essentially one huge powerpoint slide, it’s not too strange that the game is limited in resolution. The game is a little over 3 gigabytes and it’s 33% of 1080p. Keep in mind that this game was created in 1997, which equates to a 5 CD game. Had this game release at 1080p, it would’ve been around 15 CD’s. Have fun switching and keeping track of that many disk while playing!

Low resolution doesn’t necessarily mean the graphics in Riven are at all bad. In fact, Riven’s pre-rendered graphic looks awesome! It doesn’t look plastic like you would expect from a game from this era, but fairly photorealistic. The graphic looks crisp, and the surreal architecture of the buildings and environment in game brings a sense of wonder and mystery. Very few games in 1997 can blow you away graphically, Riven is one of those games that will leave you in awe at the beauty of 1997 technology.

The music and ambient track in Riven is absolutely amazing on a beefy surround sound system. Visually I was put off by the gigantic black bounding box on screen but the sound immersed me enough for me to overlook the huge dark void surrounding the game. The sounds from a water creek would fade in and out as I get closer or farther away from the source. The sound of machinery is so crisp I could believe I have such machinery in my house.

Riven isn’t for casuals or the easily frustrated. The puzzles in this game are one of the most mind bending and complicated in any game I have ever played. This is probably the first game ever that I got lost even with the assistance of a walkthrough. It’s not that the puzzles are too obscure to figure out, it’s because the logic behind them and the reference to them is sometimes hard to pick up. The map and locale of Riven is also massive so backtracking for clues can become a headache. With the limited screenshot capabilities of the game, it’s even harder to remember specific details about clues without jotting down rough notes to what you see. For casuals and unclean masses who have never played an adventure game before, this game is a deathwish. Veterans of the point and click genre will definitely be challenged.

Riven regardless of it’s age is still well worth playing for veterans of point and clicks. It aged relatively well even with it’s hideous resolution. If you’re itching for a masochistic slideshow adventure game, you won’t find a better one anywhere on steam.

I was really excited to play this game, and for such a cheap price I was sold. The product however, does NOT run properly on windows 7 despite the steam store, and I did not realise until afterward. The game will inconsistantly freeze up when changing screens or saving, averaging 5-20 minutes of play between crashes. It is really disappointing to be unable to play such a great game, but I cannot reccomend it in the state it is sold.
