What Gamespot Users have to say about Syberia

  • Rating:7.5

    If you want a memorable semi-emotional experience in a game, here you go. Just don't expect too much otherwise.

    Syberia is one of two adventure games I've been able to see through to the end (possibly because it's somewhat short...) - the other being Full Throttle. I've come to find that as with any adventure game and most Japanes... Read Full Review

    Good game but too easy to solve.

    I can only compare this game to the classic Myst trio + URU which gave me several insomniac days and - shame on me - forced me to check the hint sites during the game. Do not get me wrong, I enjoyed the story, the gra... 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

    This game had the makings of something truly spectacular, but in my opinion, while still good, it fell short of what it could have been. The puzzles and settings and story were all very well done. I was truly immerse... 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

    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

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