    Thought I'd give this a go for nostalgic reasons, and it is totally unplayable for me.
    Apart from the black box graphical glitches (which can be worked around by switching some options off) the movement is impossible!
    In 3D mode, using the mouse/trackpad to 'look' in the normal way just doesn't work. You need to be moving to be able to look around which makes it impossible to get out of certain locations unless you switch to 'classic Myst' movement mode, i.e. 2D.
    Cyan told me that to look when stationary, you have to right-click (or 2 fingers on trackpad) but that just doesn't work for me at all.
    Anyone tried this game?

    I have tried this version, and yes, the movement system is different than first-person shooters that use mouselook. I do have a five-button mouse and have found that the second mouse button was very useful.

    Can't get it to work at all. The game is totally unplayable for me.
    I'm going to ask for a refund.
