View Full Version : Syberia

Just finished the game for the first time, and it is one of the best games I've ever played. Though the control was cluncky (Xbox version), the graphics make up for all it's flaws.
Discuss... I guess........

Never heard of it. What is it?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Google & GameSpot = God.

My mom played through it, I helped her some, it was ok, but I didn't like the manipulation stuff very much. Also I like lots of characters, and this seemed kinda lacking. (Keep in mind I've only seen a few different sections of the game.)

Syberia has the worst puzzles and dialogue system ever. Nice atmosphere though.

I hated the game. All style and no substance...

...and to be honest, that doesn't often bother me, but this REALLY had no subtance.

Just downloaded and played the demo - I quite enjoyed it - reminded me of CMI (only the point and click bit). I would get the game if I could find it - all that's listed is Syberia 2 which isn't out yet. Perhaps I should try ebay......................

I played Syberia because the everyone kept comparing Kate Walker and April Ryan (protagonist of The Longest Journey) and the games themselves, which I don't think is a fair comparison personally, and I found Syberia to be okay, but it seemed to be lacking something...

Like I've said before, it reminded me of a 3rd-person Myst. Tinker with this alien device that you get no witty or even coherent description of, see what happens, if it doesn't work, try something else, repeat ad nauseum.

And the dialogue...it sounded like it was translated from another language, it just seemed so...foreign.

Even though Syberia is a very pretty and well-designed game, it didn't amaze me the way TLJ did. It's not a bad game, it's just...different (for lack of a better adjective).

I agree. TLJ is way better than Syberia, but TLJ is a lot better than a lot of games.
