You can look down. Right mouse - hold it down, and drag your cursor where you want to look down, up, left, right. You can also remap the controls, but that's the default. I didn't look at the menus - I pulled out the game card that came with it to check.

SuMac, I had luck with looking down if I was in that close-up mode. Then I could drag the cursor down or up. You just had to not fall off. HA. So I would backup as I was looking down until I could see what I wanted, then slowly walk forward. Shelly

Riven is one of my favorite games. I go back to it often just for a little stroll. For some reason I find it peaceful in spite of the fact that it starts with violence. One knows about the possible danger still it feels somehow safe and familiar.

When I started to play Uru I had no specific expectations. I did not think that it would be the continuation of any of the other games. Therefore I was able to go along with the game and enjoy what was available.

Beside the wonderful graphics there is more tension in this game than ever was in the Myst games. There are the dark overtones of the D

In the spirit of shameless self-promotion, here's an excerpt from my review that acompares Uru and Riven: [quote] I know there are Myst aficionados who will be wondering if the 3D graphics in Uru rival the 2D graphics in Riven. Uru has more realistic water effects, and does a much better job with wind, clouds, mist and drifting leaves. You can stand in the rain, watch the sun set and see the stars come out. Uru
