I don't think I've ever seen that box for UNREAL.

That's a game I miss. Back when I worked at Pfizer, we'd play this on the work LAN for lunch.

This just came in the mail. Bought it for $12 free shipping on Ebay. I'm on a mission to collect all ports and rereleases of Myst and all its sequels. This is one of the worse ports of the first Myst. Some hotspots are frustrating but there are some neat features like a photo capture and a magnifying glass (which is a must have for reading the various notes and journals in the game). It even includes the bonus Rime Age from realMyst on the PC, but the hotspots are way worse in that one. I'm not even sure how to solve that age because of some frustrating control schemes.

At least it's better than the 3DS port which uses graphics from realMyst and not the original, doesn't use the stylus (because the game view is on the top screen of the 3DS), the magnifying glass doesn't help at all it just blows up the low res image showcasing the image compression and pixelation so it's useless, and the photo capture feature simply DOES NOT WORK. The worst part of it is the cursor is controlled with the circle pad and when you let go of it it snaps the cursor back to the center of the screen like a joystick. The 3DS port myst have been designed by monkeys. It is the single worst port of Myst and anything else I've ever played. It's just straight up broken and I can't believe they asked money for it. But this original DS port is at least playable.

I assume your Myst post is for the actual Acquisitions thread - and not the first person shooter (which split from aforementioned thread). So I will go ahead and move it there. :D
