Reviews:

Computer Life, October 1994

"Myst is set on a beautiful, surreal, and richly detailed island (which sadly, exists only in the dimension of CD). It gave me very little guidance as to why I was there (I didn't care, really) or what to do next (what kind of game is this, anyway?). I soon figured out that's all part of the game - or maybe it's really a wordless, interactive mystery novel."

PC Magazine, September 13, 1994

"Thousands of strangely beautiful 3-D scenes, video clips, eerie music, and authentic sound effects combine to make up a sensual if frustrating experience on the Island of Myst. It's frustrating because you are never sure of the plot or what you are seeking; about all you do know is that something has gone horribly wrong on the island and the inhabitants have vanished.

"In a kind of sequential slide show, you visit one scene after another to invesitgate the planetarium, the space ship, the misty forest, the secret tunnels, and the strange mechanisms that dot the landscape. Eventually the rocky little island will give up its secrets and you'll solve the mystery.

"If you like a neat plot with defined goals, you will be disappointed. But if you are looking for an original and ground-breaking game, you need look no further than Myst."
