PC World Magazine Review of RealMyst: Masterpiece Edition

Postby draclvr » Sun Mar 23, 2014 11:30 am

PC World magazine usually reviews the RPGs and FPS games, but this time they have a good review of the remake of RealMyst.

RealMyst Masterpiece Edition Review

It's available at Steam, but I'm not sure where else. I checked and GOG does not have it.

Thanks Draclvr - interesting to see the review appearing there, I've got enough games to play that I'm not rushing to buy this.

Rosaboobie, the one on EBay may not be the same one. This is a brand new remake. According to the article I posted a link to...
This is the fourth major version of Myst—the original, realMyst, Myst: Masterpiece Edition, and now realMyst: Masterpiece Edition.


And this new remake is $17.99 at Steam.

I've played the original RealMyst several times and loved it. Compared to Myst, the game allows you 3D movement and has a new age which ties Myst to Riven. There are also day-night and weather cycles and neat animations in all the ages. This RealMyst Masterpiece edition has been tweaked to work on newer computers and the graphics have been upgraded yet again. I'm tempted to get it.

Rosaboobie, I'll see your senior moment and raise you one! If you don't play poker, that means I'll probably always be ahead of you on senior moments!
