Not bad for a free game!
26 December 2001 | by Nicole_Nico_87See all my reviews

We got Riven free when we bought our computer, and it didn't come in a box or a case, but just by looking at the pictures on the discs, I couldn't wait to play this game.

When I first started, I didn't even have a clue of how to get off the first island. But I soon began to understand the game, and I discovered more and more codes and secrets. But this game is so hard. Even with cheats, I had no idea how to play it. I can't even manage to get onto disc 5, which means there's a whole other area I haven't yet discovered. And what exactly is the aim of the game? To complete the puzzles? Then what? I am clueless.

This was the first computer game I ever played, and I thought the graphics were great. And they were! This game is really beautiful, both the settings, and the music, and everything else! The graphics are so good that the game seems real, and yet the whole idea of it is so surreal it's almost like a dream.

I recommend you try this but it is a lot more difficult than it's previous, MYST, and much more of a challenge...

Anyway, a good game, 10 out of 10!
