    Syberia: The World Before is a wonderful return to form for Benoît Sokal’s venerable series. Beautiful, engaging, and moving, it’s the strongest chapter in Kate Walker’s journey yet.

    Visually wondrous and full of logical, fair puzzles and likable characters, this is a worthy entry in the series, despite a jarring conclusion and some rather poor performance.

    There are still a few flaws, but the new Syberia game will reconcile old fans of the saga after a problematic Syberia 3, and charm newcomers, with better controls and its perfect storytelling.

    A touching homage to Benoît Sokal, Syberia: The World Before leaves the problems of the previous game behind and manages to bring us once again in the wonderful world designed by the Belgian author. It's not perfect in every part, but the whole experience is emotional and surprising: a worthy chapter in Kate Walker's saga.

    After a third episode which made us fear the worst for the future of Syberia, The World Before manages to prove that the license still has things to tell and an uchronic and dreamlike universe to exploit.

    The World Before is more of an interactive story than an adventure game. The gameplay was a letdown, but the story and the world were quite OK. You have to decide yourself what's more important for you.

    Превратили любимую игру с сложными квестами и большими локациями в мыльное кинцо. К сожалению, таких игр как 1 и 2 часть сибирии уже не будет.Превратили любимую игру с сложными квестами и большими локациями в мыльное кинцо. К сожалению, таких игр как 1 и 2 часть сибирии уже не будет.
