Great VR version of a classic. I've never been a big fan of point and click games but at the same time I've always loved puzzles and stories. I tried Myst many many years ago and got tired of all the clicking so when a VR version was announced I thought this was the right time to get immersed into it. The VR implementation is fantastic, you can move very fast, both when walking and running (thanks for that), controls are great, it looks gorgeous on PC and puzzles are varied and good; the same goes for all the different places you visit. Some are quite hard (others seem hard but are actually quite easy once you realise what you need to do) but overall with some help here and there you can finish the whole game without issues and it's totally worth it. The world they've created is beautiful and very immersive and it just gets better in VR which is IMO the perfect media for this type of game. You can take pictures with the in-game camera which is a very helpful tool you can use in order to remember codes and other clues. It is pretty much everything you need for that. If you're a fan of puzzle games and like a challenge, Myst VR is probably the best option there is and as I said before, the VR implementation is very good, not an afterthought like in some other games. I absolutely loved my time in the world of Myst, if the sequels get the VR treatment someday I will definitely buy them on launch day, it's that good.
I played the game on Quest 2 via Link (which worked very well) and also at times on my Index, which also worked great. I tried the Quest 2 version as well since the game is crossbuy on Oculus and while it was really good for the device it couldn't hold a candle to the beauty you get on PC. Still a very good and recommended option if you don't have a VR-capable PC.
Unbeliveable. Me and my 2 kids love this game. I have played the Myst in 1997 and now again in 2022. What a welcome back to Myst in a whole new experience. My daughter on 11 love to solve puzzles and my son just got hooked at once. This game is one of a kind and in VR its just getting even better even though I did not think it was possible. From a scale from 1-10 where 10 is best Myst get 12. If you like a good story, lost of puzzle and a great grafic play this through your computer via link caple otherwise its getting a bit downgraded. Hope you will enjoy like me and my kids. Best regards.
Bug fest! Increddibly buggy experience for me at least! I love the series and wanted to replay it in VR, but this is virtually impossible to play with graphical glitches and bugs that makes me go nuts. For instance the main menu cannot be accessed most of the time, so forget saving your progress and look at hint-photos you take.
CyanがClassicを復活させる。 Mystに興味を持っている人のほとんどがそうだと思いますが、私も長年のMystファンです。RealMystからMyst on Mobileまで、何年も前から発売されている作品はほとんどプレイしています。特にObductionの出来が良かったので、MystがVRになると聞いてとても興奮しました。VR版はベストではありませんでしたが、ひどい出来でもありませんでした。
Cyan brings back the Classic. I have been a long time fan of Myst, as I'm sure most people are who are interested in Myst at this point. I have played pretty much every iteration that's come out over the years, from realMyst, to Myst on Mobile. I was very excited to hear Myst was coming to VR, especially after how well Obduction was, albiet the VR-portion wasn't the best, it wasn't terrible either.
I'm glad to say they definitely learned their lesson. I only encountered one or two game-breaking glitches in the few hours I played, and thankfully they didn't take too long to fix. I did however run into a bizarre glitch in the Stoneship Age where I couldn't get the generator to work, no matter how long I spun the wheel in either direction. Fixed it by playing Desktop and doing the same thing again several times. I reached out to Cyan support, and they responded the same day, which definitely impressed me.
If they can iron out some of the issues with textures with text not fully loading until you're close, causing it to be blurry at what I consider to be a normal reading distance; I would say its a phenominal remaster. I wasn't very taken in by the new 3D cinematics, thankfully they left in the old quicktime videos, which I absolutely love.
Great VR game with a few minor quirks! Myst has always had a special place in my heart from its very roots with the CD-ROM back in 1993! It's a perfect world for VR and Cyan... mostly delivers. The game runs beautifully on my PC and the new textures look fantastic. Interactivity is also well executed and the locomotion options are great.
My only major complaint is Roomscale movement seems to have problems. I'm playing Myst VR in a large play area and while the game works great with analog movement, it seems to have some issues with Roomscale movement. The game will randomly "blackout" when I am walking around in real life and I have to move back a few steps for the video to come back. It's like the game thinks my avatar is clipping thru a wall but I'm not even close to any walls or objects. I hope Cyan will look into this issue further and release a fix.
Looks great, Crossbuy/Flatscreen support. I originally purchased the Quest2 version of Myst.
As a Crossbuy title I was able to get access to the Rift/Desktop copy for FREE (thank you!). My Quest2 is currently not available for service, so I was pleasantly surprised to see Cyan included FLATSCREEN support - this means we get 3 copies of Myst - Quest, Rift(PCVR), and Desktop (PC) [right click on the title and select desktop mode]. Thus, I'm playing the flastscreen version until my Quest2 is good to go again.
Thoughts - Myst looks great and is a considerable visual upgrade over the Quest version. The world environmets feature a lot of detail, and it truly looks like a modern 2021 title. Plus there's Ray Tracing support for those of us sporting the latest RTX gpus.
Thanks Cyan for the great remaster and including access to all 3 versions of the game.
Absolutely Incredible. I remember playing through the Myst series with my parents for the first time about 15 years ago. I played through all the titles on my Dad's very old computer and the whole while I was thinking it was the most amazing experience ever. Cut to today, I'm browsing through the Oculus store when suddenly, the MYST advert appears in front of me, my jaw drops to the floor.
I downloaded it immediately and I got choked up when I heard that music again for the first time. The familiar tune of the Cyan logo brought me right back to my childhood home from 15 years ago. I'm not exaggerating when I say tears welled in my eyes as I took my first steps, I had to actually lift my headset up and wipe my eyes a bit.
The game is obviously not perfect, but no game ever is. For me, the visual beauty and emotional significance far outweighs any bugs. And honestly I’m about halfway through and have yet to experience any major bugs.
I recommend Myst VR for anyone feeling nostalgic about the series. I also recommend it for anyone that’s new to the Myst community because once you put that headset on you won’t be able to take it off. I can’t wait to see what Cyan does for the next VR remake.
A VR Masterpiece. A must have if you are a VR fan and have any interest in the puzzle genre. Cyan did an amazing job re-imagining their 1993 classic and making it absolutely shine in VR.
Either version, 2D or VR, is stunning. This is about as good as games look at the moment. There are a couple of concessions I noticed they probably had to make to get the VR side to perform, but unless you are looking for them you probably won't even notice. It's one of the best looking PCVR games out there. The game is well optimized and provides DLSS support. Ran smooth as butter for me on my 3070.
Also, the quality of life improvements for VR (and just updating the game in general) are really well thought out. Cyan has definitely improved their VR chops from Obduction. There are a few minor bugs here and there that I am sure will get patched out soon. Nothing even remotely gamebreaking.
This title is full CROSS BUY which is great, so if you have a standalone Quest you can play on the go. All in all, a hearty recommendation from me!
Very good VR conversion of a masterpiece. I have played it a bit on Quest 2 then installed it on PC. This game need graphic power to shine and the PC version is far better than Quest. My GPU is a 1080Ti OC so there is no problem to run this game on Epique settings (50% of load). Please, could you go further with the supersampling setting, cause it is actually limited to 100%. Thanks. Great to see the original cinematics with the last patch 👍
A real VR treat. I really love this VR game. I havent played this since the late 90s and bringing it to VR is a nostalgic dream. An immersive puzzle solver that really makes you think. I really hope there are plans to release Riven and all the other Myst 3 , 4...etc in VR format.
Is there a chance you could add the Age of Rime in a future patch
Almost Perfect! I'd give it a solid 9 out of 10. Everything is perfect except for the new 3D Character models for Atrus and his sons. I'm not yet sold on this decision although I understand why they did it; in preperation for future Myst remasters. Everything else though, the graphics, atmosphere, music, tone, perfect. I can't help but feel like they could have found a happy medium somewhere in there between 3D characters and live actors. The camera function is perfect for VR users who can't otherwise keep notes. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't take them very long to produce a remaster of Riven on this level. I may never leave VR if that happens!
So fun. My dad brought the original Myst home one day when I was a kid. It was a CD -ROM game but our computer wasn't powerful enough to run it. I have always wanted to play this, and Myst VR was worth the wait. The puzzles are unapologetically difficult (if you're not used to it), the environments are fantastic and romantic and the story is clever enough to give the whole experience some depth, yet void of cutscenes and unskippable interruptions. There really aren't any enemies, its truly a puzzle game.
For The Love Of Pete, Wait For An Update. それはないでしょう。この地球上で最も好きなゲームについて、なぜ私に否定的なレビューを書かせなければならないのでしょうか？2つのランダム化されたゲームが100%壊れた後、私は実際にMystを怒り狂ってやめました。そう、Myst!
For The Love Of Pete, Wait For An Update. Consarn It! Why’d y’all have to make me write a negative review about my favorite game on the planet? After 2 randomized games that 100% BROKE, I actually rage quit Myst. Yes, MYST!
I encountered no less than 14 separate bugs (on both runs). A handful of them were potentially game-breaking, and 2 were DEFINITELY game breaking. Yes I sent in my DXDIAG.
Imagine it: Almost 28 years… DREAMING of an experience like this… even deliberately holding off on playing the Quest version for a full year after it came out… opting instead for the ‘polished peak experience’ of PCVR…
...Only to have it MARRED BEYOND PLAYABILITY with game-breaking nonsense like this. Welcome to Myst Island... a beautiful, broken mess.
Best version of Myst yet. Overjoyed with the Crossbuy offer! I owned this on the Quest 1 since December but the PC version is just so much more beautiful! What an experience! I'm just sad that the day/night cycles from realMyst (and to a lesser extent, realMyst Masterpiece Edition) are no longer present. But the art direction is so good. The giant sunset block by clouds look in Stoneship is breathtaking. Though, I do miss the rain at night. Still, what an incredible experience! 3 versions of the game in one! Thank you again, Cyan!
Also missing the Rime bonus age. But I gather that that's still on the way. I wonder if since the Starry Expanse fan remake of Riven became melded with Cyan if they're working on a preview for it in the Rime age! :D
