Apr 25, 2017Syberia 3 marks the return of a great saga and, above all, the return of Kate Walker. The story is deep and the puzzles offer some freshness, even if they are not complicated. Artistically it is very beautiful and it is maintained at the level of the previous games. Pity about those optimization problems.

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.… Full Review »

Sometimes it cant be loaded, sometimes buttons not responding. And only solution for this bugs, you have to start it over from the beginning. I suppose Microids cant effort to hire a tester for this shameful game.
Do yourself a favor and don't even download this unfinished game.… Full Review »
