Syberia 3, the long-awaited (13 years) next chapter in the series. Unfortunately, doesn’t hit the highs of the previous Syberia games.
In Syberia 1 and 2, you were immersed in this steampunk world. Full of weird characters and beautiful landscapes. With challenging point-and-click game play. Creative puzzle-solving. And a cohesive interesting adventure story.
Syberia 3 doesn’t evoke that same atmosphere. There are a number of technical and creative problems. Clunky steering controls. Poorly acted and somewhat lazy dialog. Mostly simplistic puzzle-solving. And a lack-lustre storyline.
On the plus side the visuals are improved, and now in 3D. The developers are releasing patches to help with the steering problem and other technical fixes.
Syberia 3 Patches and Updates
Update June 14, 2017: a patch has been released to address the steering problem. By adding a mouse-only mode. Plus fix a number of audio, text and cursor problems.
