I haven't played any Myst game (including original Myst) before I played realMyst. I had fun with this game, the puzzles are brilliant. They are logical enough and with just the right balance between easy and hard to be entertained without any walkthroughs. After this game I tried others from the original Myst series and found out that the puzzles are the same actually and they weren't entertaining at all to solve for the second time. Also you get less beatiful graphics from the past. If you would like to play a Myst game or solve puzzles and have no experience with other titles, I'd recommend this one. But if you have played others, I wouldn't give it a try, unless you are a fan of the series.
