If you have ever played Myst and then wandered around humming the tunes for forever and a day, don't worry. Rather than having
to play it again to hear the music, you could buy the Myst soundtrack. The songs are familiar, and many of them are extended
versions of game pieces. There are even three bonus tracks.
With the inclusion of the Myst soundtrack, one expects the Riven sountrack to be next. The music here has a similar feel,
likely because Riven is one Age. Still, the tracks are distinct. Like the Myst soundtrack, this one has extras and extended
versions. This is the only place you can hear the full version of Gehn's theme unless you play one of Riven's 'bad' endings.
There is also a bonus track, called Bonus Track.
Of course, the Exile soundtrack will be commented on next. Like the previous two, good for listening to when you have the
music stuck in your head. This time, the music was fdone by Jack Wall, not Robyn Miller. The style of the music is a bit different,
but not noticibly. Like the prior sountracks, there is a bonus track. This time, it's a pop-style song called Exile.
Now for something controversial... Strategy guides. While some fans claim that they are bad and don't use them to solve the
games, they can be rather useful. For example, take the official Prima Myst III: Exile guide. It has a bonus section of information
on Saavedro's exile from Narayan. The background information provided in the guides makes them worthwile, as well as having
something to refer to when stuck.
Having all of the games is good. Having Riven and Exile without disc-swapping is better. With that in mind, the Myst 10th
Anniversary DVD is a good thing. All of the games on one DVD. The only downside is that the Myst Masterpiece on the disc is
Windows-only, but Mac users can still use Riven and Exile.
Uru. There are a few reasons why it is last on this list. One is that it has high system requirements. Another is that it
is Windows only. The last is that it is not released at the time of this writing. It is on here because there are plenty of
people who have pre-ordered and are eagerly awaiting release.
