Riven is the second entry into the Myst series and the sequel to the original Myst game, both of which were extremely well received and achieved massive commercial success, selling millions of copies and being available across a spectrum of platforms including; Mac, Saturn, Windows, Jaguar CD, 3DO, CD-i, PlayStation, AmigaOS, PSP, Nintendo DS. Riven takes place immediately after the events following Myst in which you play the role of yourself, sent to Riven to free Atrus's wife and capture Ghen, a power hungry lunatic who was banished to Riven.

Riven, like the original and the others in the series is a puzzle based adventure game in which you will need to traverse across islands, explore them carefully and elaborately and solve puzzles. Riven like Myst is extremely hard, these are probably the hardest puzzle games on the market yet at the same time are logical and fair. I first experienced these as a child but had no idea what I was doing and gave up pretty shortly then went back to playing Duke Nukem 3D, now that I am older and wiser was finally able to appreciate these games, to call Myst and Riven masterpieces would be an understatement, these are works of art in every regard. I have yet to try Myst III and upwards and can’t wait.

Riven features tough puzzles, has an amazing soundtrack, brilliant plot and some of the best art work in gaming that will leave you in awe, while this may be picture-based there are some scenes which feature real actors and are done very well. Riven has an atmosphere so thick you’d need a steak knife to slice through it, an insane amount of attention to detail was put into consideration when designing every square millimetre of this game, everything is done so well.

I hope they remake this along the line with a new engine so more people and future generations will be obliged to give it a shot as this is a piece of artwork that everyone should experience.

Riven upped the ante after Myst. This time, you are not so alone in the world you play in. There are a few creatures and characters, but the interaction is still non-existent the majority of the time. However, Riven, similar to Myst is all about the puzzles and not so much about the interactions with NPCs or other characters. The story is still simply there to give you reason for the puzzles rather than anything else. The graphics look better than Myst and the world is much larger. Classic game, and a must have for any adventure genre fan.

Aah...such a good thing to get back into the worl of Riven.
I was afraid to ruin the amazing memory i had of it, and, even if i now find it just slightly less amazing, i still love it !

I had a.."richer" memory of its world. Don't know how to explain. My imagination was probably simply much better when i was youg !
Still, the game remains truly amazing if you like its kind !!

Just think about saving your progression, there are some bugs. I had to restart the game like 10 times (+2 game over :"( ). And one save was corrupted because a crash occured just during saving.

Have a minimum of two saves when playing this game. In some places when you save, the file will become corrupted and you'll get an error message when loading your saved game.

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.
