    If you can get past the hideous graphics and glitches and don't mind using an online guide every now and then, Syberia 3 is actually quite a fun game. Most of the puzzles are just the right level of challenge and the story stays interesting throughout.

    A game that shows a clear artistic design and a continuity with the first two games of the series, mostly with respect to the puzzles rather than the narrative aspect. Still, there are many flaws: the gameplay is rather clunky, the control system is far from precise, and the game design shows several bad choices. If you loved the series, you may think to buy Syberia 3. Be aware, though: the game is not well-polished.

    In any way you look at it, the story of Syberia 3 cannot be described as anything other than heart-breaking. Not only for the player or the characters themselves – if ever they were capable of realising the technical mess they were a part of – but for developer Microids. So long have they been working on this game with an ambitious attitude hoping to satisfy long-time Syberia fans after an excruciating 13 year wait. There is a great adventure game here just begging to be broken out, however for now as Syberia 3 stands, Kate Walker’s story is one best left washed ashore.

    We've waited a long time for this threequel and unfortunately, the results do not live up to expectation. Technically, it's even a bit obsolete. Only true fans will be able to appreciate this.

    Syberia 3 feels like a game that was made because everyone involved in the project felt an obligation to make it. It has its moments, and as a fan it’s great to see Sokal’s work reach a proper conclusion, but it’s also difficult to see how this game will find an audience; even among existing fans of Syberia, tastes change over 13 years, and it’s hard to see how this game has done anything to encourage people back for one more spin with Kate Walker.
  7. 20
    Syberia 3 has been stuck in development hell for seven years, and the final product is a technical shamble that delivers next to no enjoyment, playing as if it needed to be there for three times as long.

In it, as Kate Walker, a New York attorney who has abandoned her career for adventure in pursuit of meaning, you will have a great time with a host of characters in beautiful environments. This game has me hooked and for the 20 to 30 hours I'll be playing my way through it, it really takes the place of movies and novels. It has a presentation similar to movies but a length and depth more akin to a novel. Highly recommended. Expand

    I think Syberia 1 and 2 are adventure classics that every adventure fan should play.

    Unfortunately they made Syberia 3 a jogging simulator.
    I think Syberia 1 and 2 are adventure classics that every adventure fan should play.

    Unfortunately they made Syberia 3 a jogging simulator. The number of bad design decisions will blow your mind if you are a fan of the previous games. Just to name a few:

    >Going full 3d with "Resident Evil" type controls
    >Having to press the right trigger constantly to run
    >Hot spots are small white dots that appear only when Kate is near and facing them
    >Hidden small items in huge areas
    >Long loading screens when entering certain doors
    >Long distances / Kate runs slow
    >Unskipabble dialogue and cut scenes

    And other poor choices that adventures have put behind them for years now.

    Also, the game is a technical mess. Floors/ stairs that don't appear, doublicate items in inventory, items in inentory that you have already used... Countless bugs and glitches. It is absolutely rushed and one of the worst I have seen. I won't go into detail.

    The backbone of Syberia is still here and Benoit Sokal has made an interesting story once again but Microids does everything they can to kill off a series that defined the genre. This is an absolute disgrace to the previous games.

    Still, buy the game on a sale. Playing with a walkthrough in hand to avoid jogging Kate for days can still be somewhat fun. Especially for old fans.

    Syberia 3 is a point and click adventure game where you play a Kate walker
    The game starts with you being rescued by a village and then you wake up in a hospital…
    And then you set out to escape and help your new best friend get a new leg…
    This is your typical point and click game..
    You’re in an open area with things to find
    run around…
    click everything til something happens...
    And once you have some stuff in your inventory... click everything else until something else happens to progress the game…
    The puzzles here are actually pretty logical, so a guide isn’t really necessary for this game..
    But does that mean the 8 and a half hours are fun to play through?
    No
    not at all…
    The puzzles have way to many steps to them, bringing the game down to a constant crawl…
    and none of the puzzles are interesting or make you feel clever
    The answers are all obvious... you just have to go find the stuff and trade things for other things
    They all feel like fetch quests..
    Annoying roadblocks in the way of the story…
    Which also isn’t good…
    Evil doctors are after you of course…
    They’re trying to get these village people to leave...
    But I just couldn’t take any of it seriously
    the characters are lazy
    the voice acting is a joke...
    The lip syncing looks like they didn’t even try...
    They probably didn’t actually...
    They just made the lips randomly move...
    And the audio will randomly put pauses in between words
    At least Kates outfit is cute.
    I give Syberia 3
    a 5/10
