Dual Myst V Reviews
7:51 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Myst V: End of Ages, Cyan Worlds' final episode in the point and click puzzle saga, has brought the series to a close in 3D style. Today we have two reviews of the game, one from 1UP.com and one from Adventure Gamers. Myst V managed to get 3.5 out of 5 from 1UP.com and 4 out of 5 from Adventure Gamers.

From the 1UP.com review:

Don't expect anything exponentially groundbreaking. The gameplay leans heavily on interconnected puzzles, such as opening the correct valves to create a living coral walkway across frozen waters, matching celestial symbols seen from stone towers by operating a complex telescope system, and manipulating counterweights in an abandoned arena. You still get plenty of signature Myst puzzles, which offer creative and challenging IQ tests in postcard-landscape disguises.the centerpiece being an odd system of stone tablets. Yes, stone tablets. Exciting, eh?
From the Adventure Gamers review:
Exploration is a pleasure with the responsive engine that breathes life into the environs around you, and offers a full complement of control options. A mouse/keyboard combination allows for completely free roaming, but mouse-only gamers are also accommodated with intuitive node movement, point & click control. A right-click will allow a panoramic look around, while left clicking will propel you along a real-time cinematic track. It is possible to continue clicking to move fluidly and continuously. This is excellent for backtracking or moving yourself through familiar spaces.
