Rated 4/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
Very excited for this. This is a game that requires a lot of thought and time, but there is nothing else like it in the app store. Beautiful scenery and incredible story.
4 stars because the resolution just isn't what it needs to be these days. I understand the limitations Cyan has, but it could've been so much better.
Overall, a great game for those looking for a great story and challenge. Who needs movies for long trips or waits?
Graphics are terrible on iPad
Very fun game, but the graphics are terrible on my iPad. This takes away from the game big time. Please create an HD version for the IPad. I don't care if it takes up more space because it is worth it to enjoy the game more.
Riven for the iPhone is excellent. Downloading and installation were simple and straight-forward. The touch/swipe feature works logically and naturally, as if Riven were always meant for touch screens. The green hint blobs are a creative way to enhance playability on a small screen; once I learned how to control them, I didn’t mind them.
The graphics are beautiful and do full justice to the original game. However, I have an iPhone 3; while Riven is beautiful on my phone, I can’t speak to its appearance on the iPhone 4’s Retina Display. If you double-click to enlarge the image, the clarity drops because the image simply expands, blurring the pixels; unfortunate, but understandable. The only real problem with the graphics quality is the hand-written journal text, which is almost illegible.
The animations are mostly excellent, but Cyan had to take a few short cuts. Riven’s signature tram rides are first-rate; I’ve viewed them several times in both directions and they are always fluid and beautiful. The lesser animations are sometimes jerky. One example is the Temple Room: in the original game, you could feel the weight of the Temple Room as it begrudgingly began to turn, then rotated smoothly once underway under its own momentum; in the iPhone version, the room turns in steady jerks, eliminating any sense of weight and power. That’s especially unfortunate because the Temple Room is the first major animation players view and therefore sets the tone for the entire game.
However, considering Riven’s overall excellence, it beauty, its faithfulness to the original, and Cyan’s success in translating Riven to a platform you can carry in your pocket, the minor negatives are insignificant. This will stay on my phone as I return to visit Riven over and over. Five stars; highly recommended.
