    A great game ruined! Extremely disappointed :-(

    I think before Syberia hit the PC back in 2002 there was a widening gap in the adventure game genre. Microids filled that gap and they did it with style. We had the old faithfulls like broken sword and sam n max making c... Read Full Review

  • Review Score:7.7

    a few steps backward for the genre

    This is not a bad game in any respect, but a few steps down from other recent adventure games such as The Longest Journey and Grim Fandango. Sure, the graphics are fantastic. Backgrounds are beautifully done, animations ... Read Full Review

    Syberia had been hailed by many as the second coming of the traditional adventure genre, which has been on life support in America in recent years, despite the genre's continued popularity in Europe. After reading effus... Read Full Review

    Syberia is a weird game. It is about mammoths and robots. That aside it is truly an awesome game. Gameplay is the usual find this and put it there puzzles but the settings and the machinery you work with are really amazi... Read Full Review

    Syberia is a beautiful game that proved the Adventure genre isn't quite dead yet.

    The adventure genre for the PC has all but been extinct since the early 1990's. About a decade ago, we saw floods of incredible adventure games, from developers like Sierra, and Lucas Arts. But since then, we'd be luck... Read Full Review

    I'm not much of an adventure gamer, but I really enjoyed Syberia. The graphics are absolutely stunning, and the story is actually, well, compelling. The unfolding mystery drives the game forward and the sub-plots are p... Read Full Review

    Interesting fun game with some of the best thought out puzzles i have ever seen

    Syberia is like an interactive movie although the story itself might not be Hollywood blockbuster material the atmosphere that the game gives off is more than enough to make up for it. Syberia is like no other game I hav... Read Full Review

    Interesting storyline, wonderful graphics, but not the best adventure game out there.

    I have been aching to play Syberia the day I heard of it, and now that I finally did, I am a bit amazed and equally disappointed. ~ Story The story of adventure games, aside from the puzzles, is really the heart of... Read Full Review

    Sadly, games like these have been ignored by developers in recent years.

    This game is a wonderful trip back in time to what adventure games used to be, and proves that games don't need overly loud soundtracks and overly bright, flashy visuals to be immersing and entertaining. Those who have f... Read Full Review

    Get ready for a mysterious adventure in search of a clockwork genius whose story will unfold before you

    Thanks to games like Myst and the Kings Quest series I have always been a big fan of adventure games. Unfortunately I’ve been crossed enough times with adventure games that don’t live up to the hype surrounding them (Sch... Read Full Review

    Syberia is a thoroughly enjoyable game experience. The graphics are astounding (aside from the glitch at the Giant in Komkolzgrad that the patch didn't fix!), and the gameplay varies from exciting to merely entertaining... Read Full Review
