Previously in Syberia
A lawyer in NYC, Kate Walker was sent to Europe on a simple mission that gradually transformed into personal quest, an adventure that led her on a voyage aboard a locomotive bound for the reaches of the Europe. Accompanied by a robot named Oscar, she fulfilled inventor Hans Voralberg's dream, searching for the last mammoths all the way on the legendary island of Syberia.
After so many years, after so much hype, Syberia 3 is here! Before you get really really hyped, know this: it has some performance issues like the frames which this is the main factor people complained about it, but because Microids is a legit company, I'm positive that they will fix the issues, eventually. Anyways, Syberia 3 got a wonderful environment that you will get along with really soon, and still got that thing that makes you look/explore every single spot of it. The graphics were never like this in the previous Syberia games, and by that, I mean that the graphics are now even more good! You know, you can't compare the graphics of Syberia II (2004) with Syberia 3 now, right? The environment and graphics have good details, I give them that. The story is still really interesting with a lot of clues/puzzles, a lot of things to search/explore. These are some main elements that are not missing, so, you can relax now. The puzzles are good, not all of them are that hard though. About the soundtrack, it was wonderful. They didn't, let's say, just compose some random ambient songs, and that was it. No, it's a solid soundtrack actually! We can't avoid (yet) though the performance issues and some bugs it has, but as I already stated above, I believe that they will officially fix them with a new patch. They wouldn't let it go wasted over those issues. It's still playable though, no worries. It took me over 13 hours to complete it. Pretty awesome game, if you ask me. Overall, quite enjoyable. Bugs & performance issues were annoying, but in total it was worth it. I recommend though to begin from the first Syberia game and then continue all the way to this one!
As someone who has just finished the game I am recommending Syberia 3, however there are a lot of different things you should know before you start playing. I have listed some of these things below: - Syberia 3 relies on your knowledge of Syberia 1 and 2 - Syberia 3 has a cliffhanger ending - Syberia 3 was made by a small team of developers and has a lot of minor glitches - Syberia 3 has pretty iffy controls - Syberia 3 occasionally has spotty voice acting and the lipsyncing has been done for the French version, even if you are playing with English voices So why am I still recommending this game? - The world of the Syberia games is unlike any other I have experienced in gaming - The locations feel interesting and unique - I enjoyed the story and characters - I enjoyed most of the gameplay (despite the controls) - The music is awesome - The game creates a sense of joy and wonder that few other games can match, which made the adventure worthwhile for me
After nearly 12 years of absence, Syberia finally returns. It had many troubles through all those years, but it finally got released and it's... disappointing. First of all, it doesn't play like good old point and click with mouse at all, instead it's like recent Sherlock Holmes games, without gamepad it controls awkward. While the graphics are nice and soundtrack is pretty good and the story is actually well written by Benoit Sokal, what kills it is yet another cliffhanger ending, and after this many years of wait it feels almost insulting. Also, what stops this game from being truly great are the bugs - the amount of them is just crazy. Another weak thing in this are the puzzles - since it is best enjoyed with the controller, those had to be compromised to fit the control scheme. Overall, while on surface everything is sound, the most important part, gameplay and puzzles, are sadly weak. Wait until few patches or sale, then it will be worth it, because without bugs it is a game worth playing, even for a follow-up to the story of Syberia 2.
