Exile is really aimed at the followers of the Myst series. I say this because if one was to start Myst III without playing the others the storyline regarding the books could be a little complicated. That said, the leap in graphics and involvement from Riven to Exile is immense. The gameplay is far smoother with the ability to examine the environment in all planes. The puzzles do apperar to be comlicated but the game gives both visual and audio clues to the solutions. Completing individual stages of the game is rewarded, althought the final stage and ultimate conclusion I found a little dissapointing. This isnt a game to play again and again, rather one that you can come back to when bored with racing or shoot em ups. I only gave it 4 stars due to the value for money aspect on the X Box. For less money the PC box set includes all 3 Myst games. In conclusion, If you fancy a game that stretches the grey matter a little then Myst III is a welcome break.
