    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.

    I've seen many times that when a game goes 3D, it loses quality on other aspects. Syberia 1 & 2 was reasonably looking in their times but wereI've seen many times that when a game goes 3D, it loses quality on other aspects. Syberia 1 & 2 was reasonably looking in their times but were jam-packed with atmosphere, interesting puzzles and story elements. Unfortunately, Syberia 3 was a bit of a letdown to me.

    The story was a bit mediocre, the characters simplistic and the runaround mundane. The puzzles weren't that challenging once one figures out there was an interaction point missed somewhere down the line - even when hints are enabled - that was somehow overlooked because the main character faced the wrong direction when walking by and didn't prompt. Other times, the interactive points went offscreen and had to reload from autosave.

    Ah, autosave. There is only one save which you should backup periodically just in case and there is no way to save at any time. Technically possible, but I guess manual save had to go so people don't (easily) save-cheat on the 3-4 puzzles which have achievements attached doing them right the first time.

    The camera was terrible at times, not changing perspective when needed, other times changing and the direction keys suddenly meant different directions so the character started running back where she came from. But the biggest enemy were the stairs on themselves or combined with the camera angle shift: I spent a minute trying to climb the stairs to go up and down because the direction keys had reverse meaning on the top compared to the bottom of the stairs.

    The voicework is disappointing. The main character got the classical (English) voice from the previous versions but almost all the others have fresh young voices often sounding ridiculous when attached to a middle or old aged NPC. Other times, they sounded like the VO was recorded over the phone and not in a proper studio.

    The story was also non-engaging, even though picking up from where v2 left off, the premise of getting from A to B while military C is chasing the group I was unable to identify with. Maybe I missed explanations in game but the stage was kind of arbitrary.

    Maybe the only memorably thing was the music.

    Bug? Where? Everywhere.
    Camera? Yes, it is here. To watch absolutely unprecedented angles.
    Story? Just like in porn movie. Maybe smart porn

    The worst Syberia game? Sure, it's a game called Syberia, but it has nothing to do with the series.
