  • Summary: For the young Kate Walker, an ambitious lawyer, the Voralberg toy company acquisition seemed like a textbook case--a quick stopover to a small alpine village in France to buy-out an old automaton factory, then straight back home to New York. But her journey across land and time throws all she values into question, and the deal she set out to sign turns into a pact with destiny. Follow Kate through a magical world of automatons, amazing characters, and mysterious environments. This puzzle-driven adventure blends logical problem-solving with a complex and involving storyline.

  1. Anything but old school. It possesses a life of its own which is altogether unique, otherworldly and strangely believable.
  2. 80
    On a rudimentary gameplay level, Syberia is an average adventure game with average puzzles. But dig a little deeper and you'll find an experience that evokes a somber mood that stays with you long after you've finished playing.
  3. Lavish graphics and cinematic cutscenes are worth the $19.99 price tag alone, and though a couple of annoying bugs exist, it's a mature, intelligent journey that will entice any true adventure fan. [Nov 2003, p.124]
  4. 75
    Some may be put off by the rate at which you go, but those interested in pure story and puzzles will find a little piece of Heaven in Syberia.
  5. Entertaining and a refreshing break from the high-adrenaline majority of games. The graphics are stunning and the sound is incredibly realistic. With the game being so long, it was too bad the story couldn't have been better.
  6. If you're willing to forgive a game some flaws in exchange for a memorable plotline and interesting characters, Syberia has those in spades.
  7. In what appears to be a rush job, the game is riddled with inexcusable bugs such as persistent crashing and invisible walls that prohibit movement. [Oct/Nov 2003, p.91]
