Probably one of the best games I've ever played. Myst is a Point and Click game where you get to explore amazing worlds and solve puzzles.

Plot:You bump into a book called Myst. Opening the book sends you into Myst Island. Now all you can do now is explore this desolate island and discover its secrets.

Gameplay:Myst is a Point and Click game meaning that clicking to where you move,turn, and look. The game contains many puzzles. But don't fret! The puzzles aren't that hard making it a much more enjoyable experience and feeling pretty achieved for solving these puzzles. Myst also requires you most of the time to take notes which is critical for solving puzzles. You will find info which contains clues and solutions. This game also runs in quicktime FMV's. Since this isn't a great port, You might occur a bit of game freezing and sound bugs.

Graphics:Myst is made with CG and is shown with FMV's. The game is shown in pictures with some FMV animations sticked to them. Allthough this has all aged, it still looks great and does well on what its trying to present to you.

Music:There are some locations in the game that contain music. They are nice simple little loops and a nice touch.

Before I end this off. I'll give a few tips to make your Myst experience and enjoyable one:
Use a pencil and paper to take notes
Don't look at any guides or walkthroughs. That will just wreck the experience.
Run this game in Windows 95 combatibility mode since the FMV's won't work without it.

Overall Myst is an excellent game and and it has greatly inspired me. Its also only $5.99 making this an easy reccomendation.

Does not work on modern windows machines. Do a google search about this Issue, unless you are on a a super-old OS like Windows 98 and have a really old version of quicktime, this won't work.

Not very compatible with Windows 8.1. I was hoping that the availability on Steam meant this awesome game would be miraculously ported to modern platforms, but I had the following problems:
- no animations worked. Anything that was animated just didn't happen, such as the message from Atrus giving you the clue to rotate the tower.
- occasional full crashes. You can't even use Task Manager to kill the process, you have to reset the machine to recover. The crashes were mostly due to saving the game, but also occasionally due to animation.

I got it to work through the whole Channelwood Age (+- about 5 reboots), but because of the above I had a hard stop at the clock tower, whose puzzle involves animation and continually triggered a freeze.

I'm off to try realMyst-Masterpiece, which was developed much later (2014) than this (2000).

Really dissappointed. I bought this and realMyst, and neither of them will work correctly. The game won't display pictures in the books, and official patch won't install.
