    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

    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

    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

    This game is a solid 7,5/10 for me. Story is excellent and exactly what I would expect from a sequel and music is fenomenal. Original Syberia was never about story, but rather about ambient lyric atmosphere of abandonment and days long gone.

    Despite general critique, I even enjoyed game´s graphics, which was crafted in the same vaine as the originals. Unfortunately there are cons.

    Unfortunately there are cons. Camera angles are sometime atrotious, clunky controls transforming puzzle solving into chores, when you know the solution, but can´t operate the mechanisms properly.
    And there are occassional bugs.

    If you can get over these issues, the game is definitely worth your time.

    Syberia 1 and 2 i played multiple times on pc and ipad, fantastic game!. I waited al long time for syberia 3, but now i wish they had waited with the release. Eventually i accepted the bad controls, bad lip sync en bad voices. After a while they also fixed some bugs in the game, but the game doesnt feel right.

    Positive: Graphics Negative: Bad controls Bad lip sync Voices dont

    Getting to the handful of good puzzles Syberia 3 has isn't worth it for all the rubbish you'll have to wade through. This is a jittery, stuttering, mess of a videogame. [Issue#188, p.80]

    Other [puzzlers], unfortunately, rely on easily-missed collectibles or suffer from a lack of explanation. Combine all this with terrible acting(not helped by the script), technical flaws (including a consistently awful frame rate and occasional clipping), and a boring script, and you'll find that Syberia 3 leaves you cold.

    Syberia 3 isn’t a bad game by any means and offers up an immersive story… If you can make it past the horrific graphical hindrances that is.
