A New Villain Hungers for Revenge
MYST III: EXILE introduces a new villain, a bitter man whose home world was
destroyed by Sirrus and Achenar, the sons of Atrus and Catherine, whom players
originally encountered in Myst. Played by Academy Award nominee Brad Dourif
(One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), the villain has been hiding on Atrus' Ages,
awaiting his chance to gain revenge.
Inadvertently, Atrus himself has provided that chance. He and Catherine have
reestablished contact with the D'ni, a race of people whose knowledge enables
them to write the special linking Books first encountered in Myst. Atrus hopes
to see D'ni civilization restored to its full potential, and his efforts to do
so provide the perfect impetus for a man whose heart seems bent completely on
The player must track the villain through several surrealistic Ages,
navigating puzzles to uncover the truth behind this new adversary. Only then
can disaster be averted, and the fate of thousands ultimately determined.

Adventure by Ray Ivey
"The remarkable news is that Presto managed to get the recipe just right.
From Myst, they adopted the effective "hub world" structure, which is much less
intimidating and bewildering than Riven's bafflingly open-ended geography. The
homebase age of Jnanin is a construct that most adventure gamers can readily
hang on to.
"Next, from Riven, Presto included a much
stronger and cohesive plot than Myst, with a tremendously evocative backstory.
Myst felt like one big, pretty puzzle. Riven felt like you were rediscovering a
rich and tragic story. Ditto Exile. The game also has ravishingly beautiful
environments worthy of Riven--scenery so vivid you can smell it.
"Third, and perhaps most important, the designers brought in the appropriate
virtues from the tremendous Journeyman Project games. The tightness of the
storyline and the coherence and creativity of the puzzles are pleasantly
reminiscent of those dynamic games. Plus the game has dazzling 360-degree
panning that's an improvement even over the gorgeous JP3: Legacy of Time."
"Few recent graphic adventures get as many things right as Exile does. It
reminds you of why you began playing adventure games in the first place. As a
reviewer I'm supposed to be a coldly neutral voice, but I'm only human! My hat
is off in true admiration to the talented team at Presto Studios. The sheer
excellence of this game happily transforms me back into my true self--that of a
Review by Steve Ramsey
"The graphics stand out in this game. If Riven was impressive, this is
extraordinary. The images are smooth and crisp and detailed. Clouds look like
clouds, rock looks hard, water is fluid and deep, and sharp looks like it would
hurt. Old stands out from new. It truly is awe-inspiring.
"The design of the Ages is also worth mentioning. They are incredibly
imaginative and can be both alien and yet familiar at the same time. J'nanin
stood out for me, as it probably should have given its place in the scheme of
things. It's more polished and elaborate than the others, and has an air of
grandeur about it. I could imagine myself ruling worlds from within the large
"Generally I found the puzzles well constructed. I got stuck, but always
wriggled out through more experimentation and brain power. On the whole they
engaged me such that I wanted to keep picking at them until I was successful.
None were boring, and some, particularly those in Armateria, were spectacular
fun even when you failed."
"All in all Myst lII Exile is a game I would unhesitatingly recommend. It's
a worthy addition to the Myst saga, though you don't need to have played any of
the previous games to start here. If you haven't played them, and you like this
game, be sure to seek out the earlier ones."
