Myst V Reviewed
7:25 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Myst V: End of Ages is the grand finale to the Myst series. Today we have another review of the game, this time from Yahoo! Video Games. Despite a few glitches with dialog and some story confusion YVG gave Myst V 4 out of 5 stars.

From the review:

One of the more interesting game-play mechanics is the addition of mythical stone tablets, known as Slates, that can be used to solve puzzles and cause necessary environmental effects (such as rain) by drawing symbols and other patterns on it with your mouse. They're also necessary for helping you communicate with the bizarre Bahro creatures seen early on in the game (who will help you solve puzzles) and the stones can also help teleport you to other worlds. There are some limitations to holding a Slate, such as limited movement--you can't climb ladders, for example--and you must put it down to perform some other tasks. Sure, gamers can expect the traditional local puzzles, such as figuring out a contraption or placing runes in the correct order, but Slates are a welcomed addition to the game series.
