Myst V Explored
8:01 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

2404 is on of the latest to examine the final chapter in the Myst saga. Myst V: End of Ages brings Cyan Worlds' tale to a close with the style of the original and the addition of a true 3D environment to explore. The melding of old and new scored 9.2 out of 10 from 2404.

As I stated earlier, I have always been in a state of awe when visiting the worlds of Myst. If for some reason I were to live in another world that had to be designed by humans, I wouldn’t have a problem if Cyan created it. The graphics in End of Ages are no different from the rest of the series. Each age is truly beautiful with the exception of Laki’ahn, which seemed rather plain compared to the others. The age that impressed me the most was Todelmer, which places you on a different planet used by the D’ni people for studying the heavens. When you first link into the age you find yourself on a plateau-like structure facing a massive ringed planet on backdrop of the night sky, complete with shooting stars and a galaxy that resembles the “Milky Way.” The water in multiple ages, the floating clouds in Noloben, and the snow in Tahgira were other things that really added to the realism of the game and looked stunning.  You’ll also find some other creatures besides the Bahro in the game – birds, large fish creatures in the distance of Laki’ahn, and an annoying chicken-like creature on Laki’ahn which just runs around, lightening bugs similar to the those that were seen in Uru, and butterflies; all the creatures were well done and added to the realism of the game.
The full review can be found at the link below.
