Riven has been the standard by which all subsequent adventure games have been judged, and so far none has been able to take the crown from this well-crafted, intelligent, strangely realistic work. Riven brings you into a logical, almost photographic, immersive environment in which all that is lacking is the feel of the trembling ground beneath your feet.... or the scent of the humid, air clinging to your sweaty skin as you climb paths and plumb depths to search out the lands puzzle-like controls in your quest to aid your friend, Atrus, in a desperate hour.
The acting is good to excellent. Keston was engaging, even intriguing! I wanted to hear more from him! Rand Miller's opening performance was quite moving. I don't think I want to know the person who could look into Atrus' eyes and deny his request. The other performances were pretty good. I liked the little girl & the moiety lady next best. I fully recommend this game to anyone and everyone, provided you are willing to think...
