When my mother encouraged me to play this game I was dubious. For one thing I'm not particularly fond of this style of games where lots of puzzles are included because I get easily frustrated. However Myst opened my eyes somewhat. The storyline is the most engaging I have ever known from any game series. It really could be made into a film. The puzzles are not particularly difficult unless you're having one of those braindead days. The graphics are outstanding too considering the time of release and this is down to a lot of photo and video imaging that was used to create the game. The characters are all real life look so this is really the best anyone could expect. If you want a mystery/puzzle game or if you are willing to try them then this is the game for you. The storyline is brilliant, the controls are not at all complex and the graphics are breathtaking. Good game? Possibly one of the best games ever.
