It is really hard for a run-of-the-mill writer like me to do justice to Syberia in describing it. Ultimately all I can tell you is this: Play it yourself! It is not likely you will be disappointed.
Provides a huge dose of what adventure gamers are hungry for: a rich story, complicated characters, tons of puzzles and exploration of a series of beautiful and intriguing environments.
The same beautiful artwork is there, but now there are more puzzles, better, deeper characters, and, I’m not sure how to describe this, but a wonderful mood to the game. In short, Syberia is the best adventure to come out in the last two years.
Aside from a few little rough spots, Syberia is an adventure-game tour de force, with an engrossing story, a truly imaginative gameworld, and stunning visuals.
While it doesn't have many fireworks or action sequences is does have a unique story that will delight those of you who are hungry for something different than your average adventure title or just tired of shooters.
Beautiful? Stunning? Breathtaking? All words that can safely be used when describing Syberia's graphics. The level of detail is simply immense.
Overall, I must say Syberia is proof positive that no matter what anyone says, the adventure genre never died. It just went on holiday to Europe.
Syberia is a very fine adventure game, gorgeous to look at and with an intriguing and compelling story. It's tremendously enjoyable despite the air of sadness.
The setting is rich, the characters are captivating, the interface is clean and easy to use, and the puzzles are just obtuse enough to be challenging, not frustrating.
One of the best adventure games I've ever played. The near-perfectly crafted combination of story, gameplay, graphics and audio makes it utterly enchanting.
Combining a haunting story with astounding visuals and sound, Syberia is the best adventure game since "The Longest Journey."
Not only is it an intriguing game, it’s also fun. It’s like a good book – one that you’ll want to return to again and again.
While not perfect, Syberia is one of the best games of the year, and is destined to become a legend in years to come. Grab it while you can, and enjoy.
A magnificent game.
Game play wise, it seems to be missing a basic function of the Adventure genre: The description of objects.
If you appreciate well-crafted stories over carnage, it's an adventure that genre fans won't want to miss. [Sept 2002, p.84]
It is a great quest game that is definitely aimed to appeal to the generation of gamers that grew up in a time when the adventure game genre took center stage.
A slower-paced, puzzle-based game without any combat. But for those who'd rather use their brains instead of brawn, it's a solid pick.
Easily the best new adventure game in years, though it loses some steam after its outstanding first act. [Oct 2002, p.112]
Features an interesting story and great atmosphere, but its gaming aspects fall a little short.
Plot issues, questionable voice acting and a frustrating control scheme mask an otherwise good adventure title.
Syberia will return as much as you are willing to invest.
It falls far short of being a great game because of its much too simplistic puzzles, boring story, characters you don't fall in love with and a really bad ending.
Got really old really fast. [Nov 2002, p.148]
The biggest gripe I had with this game are the rather easy puzzles and the fact that some important technical (gameplay) issues were not resolved properly.
Overall, the game puzzles are too easy, which makes the game boring at times.
