Superb, wish it had been longer
6 February 1999 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

Riven is truly the most beautiful game I have ever played. The experience is almost spiritual in its depth. The graphics are absolutely gorgeous, and artistically designed down to the tiniest detail, and quality is high throughout. John Keston's performance as Gehn is very convincing and adds to the feeling of being inside a grand story. I would love to see a movie set in this world. The visual splendour surpassed 99% of the films out there.

The game is large, but I solved it over the course of 4 days, so it's not "huge" as advertised. My major gripe is that I would have preferred it to be twice as long. The puzzles are intelligent, and not arbitrary. Unlike many problem-solving games, a trial-and-error approach is almost useless in Riven. Only building an understanding of the world, together with some intuitive leaps of logic, will help.

Thoroughly recommended.
