Gaming Deal of the Day – Myst 5: End of Ages
Peter Donnell / 6 years ago
The original Myst was a classic in many ways, albeit one that you either loved or hated, but for those who tip towards the latter, now would be a perfect time to play the direct sequel to the events of the original.
GOG.COM: “This is a great return for Rand Miller and Cyan Worlds to a familiar territory, but still a sad one, since every puzzle solved brings you one step closer to completion. The final part of the series has the story and puzzles to keep you absorbed until you make the final choice that will decide your fate and the fate of many others. Myst V is a worthy successor and one of the rare games thats imagination and beauty will be never lost in time, a fitting end to one of the best-selling computer series of all time.”
What’s cool about it:
- Gripping story that ends with a well-thought and satisfying conclusion for the entire series.
- Artistic level design with visually breathtaking locations which you can freely explore.
- Enchanting soundtrack composed by Tim Larkin that changes dynamically so that each time you hear a certain tune it sounds a little different.
Picking up immediately where original Myst ended, you are presented the privilege, challenge, and responsibility of restoring the lost empire of the D’ni–an ancient civilization of people who thrived for thousands of years before they met with a great catastrophe. Like each previous Myst title, Myst V: End of Ages advances the graphical beauty and detail of its worlds to create an environment that is so real you feel almost like you’re living in it. Cyan carefully crafted and combined elements of adventure, puzzles, storyline, and gameplay innovation creating a worthy ending to the one game to which millions will forever compare any adventure title–Myst.
Myst 5: End of Ages brings the marvelous story presented in the series to a very satisfying and definitive end. This is one of those games where you keep the whole end-credits rolling while you submerge yourself in thoughts of what you have just experienced and how incredible it was. It is even a little sad that this is it but every great story has to have an end and this is clearly the conclusion the series deserved.
