  1. It is really hard for a run-of-the-mill writer like me to do justice to Syberia in describing it. Ultimately all I can tell you is this: Play it yourself! It is not likely you will be disappointed.
  2. Aside from a few little rough spots, Syberia is an adventure-game tour de force, with an engrossing story, a truly imaginative gameworld, and stunning visuals.
  3. 90
    The setting is rich, the characters are captivating, the interface is clean and easy to use, and the puzzles are just obtuse enough to be challenging, not frustrating.
  4. A slower-paced, puzzle-based game without any combat. But for those who'd rather use their brains instead of brawn, it's a solid pick.
  5. Game play wise, it seems to be missing a basic function of the Adventure genre: The description of objects.
  6. Features an interesting story and great atmosphere, but its gaming aspects fall a little short.
  7. Overall, the game puzzles are too easy, which makes the game boring at times.

    And so... what better than play again the masterpiece of Benoît Sokal?

    One of the most inspired games of all time: dreamy, melancholy and funny at the same time!

    And I look forward to Syberia 3...

    Syberia is a pure adventure game. Story of syberia takes place as you might guess by the name of the game, in a frozen town where people lifeSyberia is a pure adventure game. Story of syberia takes place as you might guess by the name of the game, in a frozen town where people life was handled by robotic people and you have come to buy the company and regain its reputation agian after the death of its owner. But sounds like the owner's brother is still alive where you do not know and it brings you to a breath taking and beautiful adventure where you will discover the life of this people, their culture through out a nice written story and awesome art direction. Syberia has quiet challenging puzzle through out the game and it might take you a while to figure out the solutions but they are that much interesting and nicely put together that makes you never bored of it. Story is just awesome and really unforgeable. Graphics are pre-rendered environments but the art directions is somehow awesome job. Overall Syberia is an unforgettable game. Expand

I picked this up on sale for $3, and I haveSyberia is an amazing adventure game, and one that you should play if you're a fan of the genre. I picked this up on sale for $3, and I have to say that this game is worth more than that; my 19 hours spent playing it had been one of the best experiences that I've had in gaming. The story is great, and it really caught my attention from the beginning, keeping me glued to my seat just to see what happens next. There's an absolute charm to be found in Syberia, and the attention to detail in regards to the cast's dialogue and personalities made the game stand out.

    The story follows Kate Walker: an American lawyer who was sent by her firm to the French town of Valadilene to settle a huge deal. She was tasked with obtaining the signature of one Anna Voralberg in order to complete an American company's takeover of the once renowned Voralberg factory: makers of world-class automatons. The problem is, Anna Voralberg has been dead for a couple of days before Kate arrived and she is now forced to stay and find a supposed heir, leading her to a quest to find a man known as Hans Voralberg.

    Syberia is quite simple in terms of gameplay. It's your standard point-and-click with puzzle solving and detective elements; it has nothing groundbreaking to offer and its main draw lies in its simplicity. Unlike its peers, the game is pretty straightforward, and you won't get lost and have problems on where to go next or what puzzles to solve, despite having some very expansive areas. Difficulty-wise, the puzzles range from mundane to having the right amount of challenge, and since the game incorporates elements of steampunk, expect some weird and cooky contraptions to tinker with. The protagonist even has a satellite phone which she uses a number of times to talk to her relatives back home, and gain information that she couldn't access in a remote place. The phone is her only link to the outside world and it's interesting to see that she uses it less and less as the player progresses, since she becomes more independent and more curious. Throughout the levels, there are optional documents which can be discovered, that provide detailed insights on the world and its inhabitants. Some contain clues on how puzzles can be solved and most of them are just great reads that flesh out the story. My only gripe with the game is that backtracking is so excessive. Puzzles that could have been solved by player intuition is held back by dialogue checks and the need to show puzzle pieces bit by bit because of story reasons. There's even a section in the game where you have to go back and forth between two characters that are a minute away - in real time - from each other for at least 3 times, because one is too secretive and you have to persuade the other to spill the beans. Just a minor gripe and you'll get used to it somehow, but I hope that I'll never tread the same path again in the sequel.

    And there you have it.

It borrows a lot of the good from older classics like The Longest Journey, but applies a very unique steampunk style. The graphics are a bit dated by 2012 standards, but they are still very pretty to look at and they complement the story well. This game is an adventure first and a puzzle game second. The puzzles are fun but not very hard and not very numerous. I used hints once or twice, but that should not be necessary for most players. The game is well designed in that there are always cues to let the player know what needs to happen next. I would recommend this to anyone who likes adventure games. I don't remember a lot of bad language or adult themes, so I think this would be a good games for older children/tweens. Expand

L'histoire est bizarre dans un universJeu d'aventure classique "je pointe et je clique" graphiquement correct et doté d'une bonne VF. L'histoire est bizarre dans un univers bizarroïde avec des automates, des clefs étranges et des engrenages. Reste à savoir où mettre les clefs et les engrenages puisque rien ne va avec rien : les piles auvergnates ne rentrent pas dans les robots bretons et l'interface minimaliste est peu loquace. Avant de me faire un noeud au cerveau avec ce fatras illogique kafkaïen, j'appuie sur eject (ça c'est simple) et j'envois cet étron au recyclage avec les autres pseudo-jeux de son espèce. Et je tire la chasse bien sûr. Expand
