|The original Myst game was really amazing for its time. The graphics were gorgeous, and the puzzles were quite intriguing. Still, some found the puzzles TOO hard and needed help.|
That's where Myst: Masterpiece Edition came into play. It includes a digital guide that gives you subtle hints about where you're stuck, helping you get unstuck. Also, it improved the graphics slightly, and added in even better sound.
If you're heavily into puzzles, you might want to go for the basic version of Myst,or maybe for RealMyst which updates the Myst experience into a 3D world. It can be far too tempting to check the answers if you get this version, which ruins a lot of the fun of discovering the answers for yourself. But if you have trouble with puzzles, or have limited playing time and don't want to work through puzzles for several hours, this might be perfect for you.
