Game Overview

Here's A Review of Riven in four words: It's Myst, but better.

Set in Mysts fantasy universe Riven sees you tasked with imprisoning a wizard in a book that contains a broken LCD, to free a woman who can evacuate the residents of Riven before it destroys itself. Got that? So you start off being teleported into a cell. While you're stuck there an oriental lad steals your magic prison book and is promptly assassinated by a ninja wearing sunglasses. He keeps the book and releases you from your cell. And all this in glorious 640 x 480 FMV.

From then on you're in Myst territory, flick-screening around an archipelago solving puzzles. But Riven stands out from the original in two ways: it's stunningly beautiful, with FMV making everything believable, and puzzles are designed as part of the environment, rather than being dumped in your path.

Having the same gameplay as Myst means Riven shares the same faults: solving puzzles can involve staring at your monitor while randomly clicking stuff. And if logic puzzles aren't your thing, this game will make you feel stupid. But people who want to something off-beat to play, Riven makes a fine choice.
