Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
At a desert formation in New Mexico, a laid-back RVer tells you to find the "journeys" that "she" has left for you. So you enter the world of Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, a puzzle-based adventure that continues the legend of the D'ni civilization, which possessed the ability to travel to fantastic locations via linked books.

The latest release in the Myst series leaps into the realm of 3D gaming. For the first time, you create a custom avatar to represent yourself, and you can move and look into all three dimensions. Although running and jumping are standard elements in the game, Uru is not an action title. Its core gameplay is still brain-teasing puzzles within an immersive story line.

You can view the Uru world from both first-person and third-person perspectives, although camera rotation is only possible in first person. A mouse-based system is necessary for interacting with the environment, but you can program keyboard controls for movement. The lush graphics that defined the earlier, static releases are here in full 3D glory, but you may need to reduce the settings for lower-end PCs. The demo offers the introductory level for the game, and the puzzles are accordingly quite simple. However, there's plenty of gameplay to get a good feel for the game.

Developer's Description

Uru: Ages Beyond Myst is the next chapter of the Myst franchise and the most immersive and ambitious Myst experience ever created. The single-player game is bigger, better, and more innovative than any of the previous Myst adventures. Players can move at their own pace, spending hours discovering visually stunning, real-time 3D worlds, solving a large variety of mind-challenging puzzles, and following an epic story line. They can continue to discover new areas of D'ni by connecting to Uru Live, the online service of Uru. There, players will be part of an ever-expanding world that provides more areas to explore and more mysteries to solve.
