    Syberia 3 brings back, in a very beautiful way, the genre of the graphic adventure. It has some performance issues and frame-drops, but everyone who loves the genre should give it a try.

    Syberia 3 may have some touching moments and interesting characters, as well as puzzles consistent with the game's lore, but questionable gameplay choices, technical issues and a weak ending that doesn't offer any conclusion, leave a lot to be desired.

    A shameful ending to a beloved series.

    While the puzzles leave a decent impression, the numerous technical problems as well as the weird changes of perspective make this a frustrating and sluggish experience.

    Syberia 3’s ample potential for greatness is squandered by an awkward translation, poor design, and a heaping helping of technical issues.

    Some solid puzzles can’t rescue what is an otherwise terrible adventure game.

The story is compelling, the puzzles are creative, and it just gives me that same feeling that the previous Syberia games gave me.

    So, I've probably played a good chunk of this game now. I had my expectations set low, as I didn't really know how this game would turn out. Before playing it, I thought it would be another tacked-on sequel, with no new ideas or personality.

    I was pleasantly surprised.

    The game follows Kate Walker, after being ditched by Voralburg. She's on the run after not returning the contract for the Voralburg factory, with accusations of embezzlement. However, she has the Yukals on her side on her journey.

    About controls: they have changed since the first game. Don't get me wrong: this is still a point-&-click, but movement is controlled using the arrow keys. I guess you could say it's slightly clunky, but it works.

    I personally think that the graphics are quite nice, however, that could be subjective. Some parts definitely look better than others, and I actually prefer the in-engine cutscenes to the pre-rendered ones. The graphics aren't any different to the trailers, so you can probably make judgement based on that.

    Puzzles and story is where this game really shines. The story does a great job at continuing the adventure: and adventure there is. I've already experienced some plot-twists I've never saw coming, and I feel that the pacing is quite good. The puzzles are similar to the previous games, if not slightly easier (which is welcome to me, as I found the previous games pretty difficult).

    The only criticism I would say is at the beginning, the game sets you down a narrow path. If you find an item, sometimes you cannot get it until someone points it out to you. This is pretty frustrating.

    Overall though, this game feels like a Syberia game, and gets the tone right. A couple of technical issues are there, but they have not made me enjoy this game any less.

    Although I've only played for a couple of hours thus far I can definitely say that it's very rough around the edges. So much so that theyAlthough I've only played for a couple of hours thus far I can definitely say that it's very rough around the edges. So much so that they should have delayed it further. The main issues for me thus far:

    - Movement/interaction: It's extremely clunky, especially on keyboard/mouse. Sometimes it completely breaks as your character moves on her own despite input.
    - Camera angles: I know they probably are a staple of previous games but they just don't give any good or useful angles and are even contributing to the problem of movement. It simply would have been more appropriate with a 3rd person camera like that of e.g. Life is Strange or any of the Telltale games.
    - Lip syncing: Aside from often being completely out of sync sometimes there's not even any voice at all for speaking characters.
    - Poor optimization: Frame rates can dip down to 40 and 30 FPS even on high-end hardware, despite last-last gen graphics.
    - Overall lack of polish: One example of this is in Dr. Olga's room near the beginning of the game where it's just completely silent. No sound effects, no music, not even any footsteps from your character. This lack of attention to sound design is prevalent throughout.
    - Poor logic in many puzzles: It's easier with an example (minor spoiler).[spoiler] As you visit Mr. Steiner in his shop he has a heart attack and you have to get him his medicine with haste. He will gladly complain about you not finding his medicine if you look at the wrong stuff but he simply won't tell you where to find it (why?). [/spoiler] Ultimately it becomes extremely contrived [spoiler] and you end up having to spend half an hour or more finding that you have to turn back a clock to a random time in order for it to make tea and add pills to the tea which you can then give to Steiner... [/spoiler] These types of illogical puzzles are just tedious and should be left out in my opinion.

    There are a couple of good- and potentially good things however:

    + Mechanical puzzles: Unlike in any other game I've played this is a very interesting and unique gameplay mechanic.
    + The game doesn't rely to much on previous storyline which means new players to the series (like me) can get into it. Though I was confused a couple of times who Oscar was. Like in Dreamfall Chapters, they should have added a recap video at the start of previous games.
    + Music is good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpFwrvuaGdc
    + Dialogue wheel: I always love having choice in what the protagonist says. Even if it's just an illusion of choice.

    I will comment further on the overall story and characterization after I've finished the game. These were just my first few hours of impressions. Given these, I do not recommend the game currently. Especially not at €40, unless you're a hardcore fan of previous games. For everyone else, wait for it to be polished and reduced in price.

    It's hard to believe, but there's no possibility in this game to save whenever you want.
    So, MAYBE, but just MAYBE, in a graphic adventure
    It's hard to believe, but there's no possibility in this game to save whenever you want.
    So, MAYBE, but just MAYBE, in a graphic adventure game, you could be stuck in some point.
    And well, you give up, you can't go further.
    Maybe tomorrow will be better.
    So, tomorrow, just do again some parts you have just done several times, and MAYBE you won't find your path.
    And again, and again, and again.
    Unbelievable.
