This game does not run on Windows 7. Unfortunately I discovered this first hand AFTER buying it, but if you look around the interwebs you will see lots of other people with the same problems. The game WILL load and play, but after a while it WILL crash. I've tried multiple times and always crash within 1-2 minutes. Oh well, maybe Real Myst will run better.

Its Myst what more is there to say, one of the best adventure games i've played. Even today its still a good game to pass the time.

Works fine on Windows 7 SP1 x64 (My set up anyway)

Awesome part of my childhood. Runs beautifully, even on 8.1. No crashes (yet!).
Beautiful graphics, wonderful soundtrack, and challangeing puzzles make this game worth the money. You won't regret it!

Complete WASTE OF MONEY. Heard so much about Myst and wanted to experience it. This game should not be this hard to run!!! Windows 8 / i7 core Geforce gtx 765m Game lags like crazy, would not load animations till set on run as win98, now video runs but game crashes constantly. DON'T WASTE THE MONEY! Buy a newer game.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! This game just does not work, plain and simple. realMyst works just fine on my computer, but this won't load a number of things that are needed to play. realMyst is the same price, and actually works.

There is no guarantee that this game will run on your system. Even spending time adjusting the comparability settings cannot guarantee it will run. Do not buy unless you wish to deal with buyer's remorse.

Downloaded for Windows 7, realized I wasted my money since it won't play the videos, and some gameplay is just missing.

Myst is an amazing game that will never get old. Not for the impatient or the easily frustrated, some of the puzzles are quite difficult, but they always make perfect sense in some way once you grasp what's happening.

I did need to fiddle around with compatibility settings, as initially the game kept crashing on me. But once I found something that worked, it ran smoothly with no further crashes.

Waste of money. It won't function on windows 8.1, and there is no way to get your money back after you purchase.

So nostalgic! I just want to have a house exactly like Myst land and I will put a shelf with dozens of burned books on the entrance. And I will record a message saying "please bring me the 'light purple page'" that will be heard when you enter the house. Gosh, I want this.

Having never played Myst but always hearing of it, I was eager to dive into this mysterious game for myself. The atmosphere, puzzles, and sounds are all amazing in this game. Unofrtunately it is old and doesn't run perfectly. That said, I have Windows 7 and ran Myst in compatibility mode on Windows 98 and the only issue was saving and loading took a while and seemed like it was crashing, but after about a minute the game would return to normal. Overall this is one of my new favorite games and I would recommend that everybody try it out.

Being a Big Myst fan I was excited to buy this and run it on my Windows 8.1 Laptop. I was dissapointed at first when the game kept crashing, but after running the game through Windows ME/98 campatibility mode It worked just like I remeber it. I definantly recomend this to anyone who loves the Myst franchise

Digital Myst! The supurb game is back! Your old cd isn't needed now! Buy the Cyan Complete Pack to get this game and ALL of the other greats, even their good old kids games! Such rich textures, colours and you can run through the ages now at full speed! What an improvement! The Mystery of Myst is alive and well!

Very well done. It's an artifact from the old days and holds up to a lot of indie point-and-click games.

Unplayable on my Windows 7. I thought I was doing something wrong so I looked up a walkthrough and apparently there's supposed to be animations that tell you what to do. I tried very hard to play through the crashes (I did pay for this, after all) but since there are parts of the game reliant on animation to play, it's not even like I could just look them up on Youtube or something. It ended up being a complete waste of money. I regret not buying the updated version.
