A must-have game
February 28, 2012

It's incredible how much inventiveness has been put into the designing of Syberia. It's totally unlike any other casual game. The storyline is faultless and gripping. The graphics are awesome. Voice acting is truly professional and the adventure 100% compelling with challenging minigames. It's indeed pure adventure, not one of those many HOGs with an addition of simple tasks, a lot of mileage to do and hints always ready to help. No, No. Syberia requires common sense, wits, logic and patience. Everything in it makes sense and unfolds smoothly along the lines set by the story. To tell the truth, Syberia requires a great deal of mental effort. Those who lack this quality will find it confusing. But confusing the game is not. On the contrary. Difficult yes, confusing, no. I own and have played Syberia 1 and 2 when it was offered as a Large File. As soon as I had completed # 1 I couldn't wait to start on the second part. Describing what happens in the game and what it contains is virtually impossible in a short review because the game is that rich. The absence of hints shouldn't deter you from buying this masterpiece -you have a walkthrough anyway. But I doubt 1 hour will suffice to even scratch the surface of a game that lasts for hours. If you feel adventurous, simply buy it, and if you are keen on adventures that are off the beaten tracks, Syberia will not disappoint you. Highly recommended

An Intense, Unforgettable Adventure
February 28, 2012

I will issue this warning up front: This game is not for everyone. Syberia is an intense, challenging adventure that requires a great deal of attention, patience, and mental effort. But for those willing to put in this effort, the rewards are immense. Indeed, it almost feels wrong calling Syberia an adventure -- it's more like an experience. You play as Kate Walker, an attorney from the US who goes to Valadilene, France, to orchestrate the sale of an automaton factory to a toy company. Of course, things don't go as planned, and Kate starts off on an epic adventure to find the missing and long-presumed dead Hans Voralberg so that the sale can proceed. Kate embarks upon this journey via train with her automaton helper, Oscar. The game is absolutely beautiful, and also completely immersive. Throughout the game, you get to experience not only the adventure, but also Kate's home and professional life by way of phone calls with her boyfriend, mother, and bosses. You really get to know Kate in a way that you almost never do in a casual game. I know that personally there were moments in both Syberia I and II where I was cheering for Kate in excitement and moments when I felt her frustration and sadness. The game is honestly just that good. Although I personally adore Syberia, I will admit that it is not for everyone. Before you download it, you need to understand that it is totally different from anything you've ever played. There are no hidden object scenes. There are no hints. There are no mini-games. The interface is clunky and there is no tutorial (although there are plenty of walkthroughs available). But if you're willing to put in the time and some effort, you will come away with an unforgettable experience like no other.

Best Game on Earth
April 11, 2012

This has got to be the best game on earth. I was blown away by the graphics, storyline, puzzles. It is a LONG game which is even better. I know it is an older game, but it stands the test of time. I suppose the only drawback would be I don't want to stop playing once I get comfortable in my easy chair!

Excellent!
February 28, 2012

This game has beautiful graphics. The puzzles are difficult. It took me several days to finish. I enjoyed the challenge because the story is gripping. Syberia 2 is even better because it continues the adventure. If you are a pure adventure game player this game is for you!

Fantastic
February 29, 2012

I really enjoyed this game. Some of the scenes and backgrounds were impressive. Some of the characters in this game were funny and some that were meant to be annoying were truely annoying (i.e. the main character's phone contact list). Trying to find out which objects were meant to interact with another object was challenging. Some objects were not as I thought they would be used for. I liked how goal oriented the main character was and how she worked hard to reach her goals. I also liked how the main character could run and that she did not have to walk everywhere. Really fun game.

Give This Game a Chance!!
February 28, 2012

I played the first two Syberia games and loved them! The storyline is intriguing and becomes more interesting as the game progresses. The graphics and scenes are beautifully rendered. The voice acting is good. The music when added accentuates the situation beautifully. This is not a hidden objects game but rather a puzzle game in which your character hunts for objects to complete each puzzle. There is no hints system and there are no time limits. Walkthroughs are available here at BFG and on the web with a simple Google search (this came in handy for me many times) The only downside to this game is that your character Kate Walker has to go from scene to scene to scene to retrieve objects or information to continue to the next task. That's a lot of travel time. For me, that is a small annoyance I could live with. This game does not have a scrolling camera that moves along with the mouse which some gamers find disorienting and nauseating. The character is directed through the scenes by the click of the mouse. If you liked games like NiBiRu, Rhiannan:Curse of the Four Branches and Keepsake (not on this site) you will enjoy Syberia. Good luck and happy gaming ^_^ Now I eagerly wait the release of Syberia 3!

One of the all time bests
February 28, 2012

I loved this game when it came out, and I love it now. One of my all time favorite games. Beautiful scenery, great sounds, well developed characters. The only series of games that i actually "missed" when i finished it. However, this is not a relaxing, mindless, timefiller game. You must invest yourself in it, and you have to think creatively. If you don't like hunting, searching, clicking and walking/running back and forth you will become frustrated by this game. This game really "stretched" me in game playing. It was my first adventure game, and so far I haven't found many to rival it.

One of the Best......
February 28, 2012

I bought Syberia when it first came out and it was my very first attempt at playing an Adventure game. Needless to say, I was totally lost and got bored very quickle and so I quit. After almost 6 months passed, and having played Dracula Origin, I again sat down to play Siberia and it was one of the best gaming experiences I have ever had. I spent many long nights on this game and before I knew it, I became the main character and was actually living the game. Never have I felt so immersed into a story and so absorbed by what was going on. I "virtually" lost myself in Siberia and was so sad when it ended. This game isnt for everyone, and it takes enormous time and patience, but if you are open to adventure, traveling to a far off land, meeting wonderful characters, then the worn out sneakers will not matter at all. A few times I did need the walk-through, but once you get the hang of it, learnign the ins and outs of this paticular genre of game, you quickly get hooked and I have to say, that nothing has come close to the experience I had playing Siberia 1 and Siberia 2. ALthough I cant dismiss the fact that it is unfortunate that this game is now being sold in parts, but I will say this, for those who havent played this game, who want to broaden their gaming experiences to more than just your average IHOG/Adventure, I highly recommend you get this jewel. Yes the tecnology is a bit dated but the graphics, the sound and the story, like I said, nothing comes close to S?beria.

Phenomenal
February 28, 2012

If you have never played this game and you enjoy adventures, this is the greatest adventure game you will ever play, this is the greatest adventure game available anywhere on any platform. I have both the original Siberia I and II games, and of the 400 odd PC games I own, Siberia I and II have no equal, of the hundreds of PS1, PS2, PS3 and Xbox 360 games own, Siberia I and II still have no equal. The story is beautiful, interesting and compelling. The game play which can occasionally be difficult is stunning and enthralling. I will buy this game in it?s current BFG iteration, just to have the experience again.

THE game you can't miss...
February 28, 2012

This is an amazing, beautiful, long game. Took me days to play it as it's not too easy, but so attractive. Gorgeous graphics, excellent story. A GREAT, GRAND GAME And Syberia II is just as good, we need more games like this one, for me, a real "chef d'oeuvre" in the game field.
