Myst V

I finally managed to finish Myst IV, one year after I first started playing it. The fifth and final game of the legendary series is arriving in about a month, although I don't know how will I be able to play it since it requires directx 9.0c which cannot be installed in my computer for some reason. I would bet that they will briefly revisit the original island of Myst, which we explored more than 10 years ago.

Myst IV moved along the lines of Myst III, with stunning graphics, realistic environments and usually quality riddles. For the first time a supernatural ingredient was introduced, yet in a very pleasant way. Rand Miller did a great job, having several breathtaking moments during the game. My favorite riddle: the colored door.
