Around late 1993 or early 1994, a game came out that rocked the computer game market. It featured an immersive environment filled with puzzles, mystery, and intrigue. This game was Myst, now a classic and somewhat historic game. It captivated legions of adventure and puzzle game fanatics, yet it annoyed some gamers because they felt it was too vague, challenging, and boring. Still, it was one of the most widely known and most talked about games ever to hit the shelves.
And now it has a sequel.
Riven is much like it's predecessor. In it, you must rescue Catherine, who has been enslaved somewhere in Riven. To do this, you will be required to immerse yourself into a vast world which features even more detailed graphics, more complex and challenging puzzles, and a longer gaming experience. You'll travel to many exotic locations, such as dark caves and glorious forests and beaches. The game—like Myst—is completely non-linear, meaning you can do anything you want to do. There's also a more complete sense of a story, thanks to nicely done FMV sequences. Fans of Myst, prepare yourselves for an all new adventure. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
