This is why I didn't preorder. The lack of responses to my inquiries made me think I wouldn't care for it. I so wanted it to be a just like the first two. What do you not like, Greyfuss?

Ana, my comment was more just about hoping people would like the game after waiting so long and being so excited about it (not as in a review way). I also don't care for certain controls.

Do tell what the UGH is about Greyfuss.

First let me say the the Save system is not at certain points in the game or markers, it seems to save upon exit. There is a Load button and a continue so it may save on every exit and there is a chance to Load from any of those but I haven't tried that yet.

Second...that puzzle we all were talking about in the Demo of how easy it was....its exactly that way in the game.

Controls...UGH... Not point and click or even close. Furthermore you can't use your mouse to steer and program a mouse button to move forward no, total control of Kate is the WASD keys and it may be easier with a controller because you have to use two buttons at times to guide her around objects in the right direction. Also you have to walk up to and be near items, places or people just to get an action curser. There are Dialog tree/choices that can be chosen with a mouse click and you can examine and manipulate Inventory items but to get to the Inventory you have to use the 'I' Key. I am sure that can be programed into the mouse though. There are two modes of play, I am playing Adventure Mode and there is another called Voyage. Maybe I will get into it more but with this type of Controls I am having a hard time getting into any kind of story yet. This game would have been perfect to have the control scheme like the newer Sherlock games or at least have the option to switch. I will plug on but only because the game cost so much. I have been in the game for about an hour and a half and the only challenges I have come across is the controls.

Well, that is truly disappointing. Thanks for the feedback Greyfuss.

Thanks Greyfuss. While I much prefer point and click, I don't mind WASD keys once I get going. I don't like having to get to up close to things though to interact with them. That usually makes me start feeling ill as in the Sherlock Holmes games.

Don't like that it only saves on exit. I still wonder about the puzzles. Hoping they get more challenging.

I wonder what Voyage mode is.

Thank you for the information and for your opinions, GreyFuss.

Honestly, all my hopes in the adventure game department this year are now pinned on Jonathan Boakes, being as Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem is still a lost cause. I would mention Carol Reed as well, but a new game in the series was recently released. The good news is that lately I have been reading a lot more.

as I mentioned before Syberia 3 was a NO Buy for me, although in the back of my mind there was still a Smidgen of a chance I might change my mind, after reading all of the above, now is there is Absolutely No Way I am buying this game, really too bad, like many of us, was really looking forward to playing S3.

I know this sounds mean and the Mods might remove this last paragraph, but I really hope the Company falls flat on their face with this one and loose money on it, then maybe they will go back to drawing board and re-configure the game to make it PC/Mouse compatible and this can be done via Patches.

If they don't succeed Starcom, the last thing they will do is pour more money into it. Sorry to say, it is what it is. sad

Hi, my fellow Boomers,
After all the "hype" about this game, it's rather disappointing to read Greyfuss's review so far. Also,I don't even know if my computer can handle the system requirements, the minimum being 4 gigs of Ram. I have 6 gigs on my windows 10 pc, but the game might be 'sluggish" at the very least. With a price tag of $40, I would need to play a Demo first. Has anybody found a playable Demo of this game from a legitimate site?.I've done a search for one, but the sources I've found don't seem to be that credible. (Greyfuss had mentioned a Demo in his post). So much for HAPPY GAMING on THIS one LOL

How very disappointing

But not unexpected considering it was designed for console.
Benoit Sokal has made it clear in various interviews that he's primarily interested in making games for console and not for PC.

Syberia is not the only game series that has been diminished by "consolization" (having sequels developed mainly for console when the original games in the series were made for PC).

Ana is right. They will not turn it into a point-and-click.
If the game fails, they will claim there is no market for adventure games, even though adventure gamers are obviously not the target audience.

The so-called "demo" was only sent to certain game sites to do a preview of the game. You can watch it on YouTube but I doubt you'll find it for download anywhere.

Thanks Jenny,
There is no way that I will consider purchasing this game now.Already it seems to be a "loser" (in my not so humble opinion). I don't even own an X-BOX, or any other controller for that matter. SIERRA, where have you gone? I've been looking at GOG, STEAM, and Zodiac, and I haven't seen ANYTHING resembling a GOOD adventure game that I would purchase.
Sorry for my ranting!
Sandy

There are Let's Plays of Syberia 3 appearing on YouTube that you can watch if you're interested in the story but can't handle the controls (or if your computer doesn't meet requirements).

I don't know what you're looking for or what you've played recently. But maybe you could replay an old favorite like the first Lost Horizon game or Gabriel Knight 2 if you're not seeing any current adventure games that are the type you're interested in.

Sierra was victim of a hostile takeover. You can read about it in interviews with Al Lowe at http://www.nodontdie.com/al-lowe/
and http://www.brainlazy.com/article/this-week/al-lowe-interview/

There are two Modes/Difficulty to play in, this is what they say.

Adventure Mode:
You want to enjoy all the sensations of the first two Syberia games with fewer visual clues.

Voyage Mode:
You play for the story and want to have visual clues


Right now I would have to question the statement in Adventure Mode "You want to enjoy all the sensations of the first two Syberia games" because with these controls its very hard to get any sensation of the first two games as I have to pay so much attention to the controls which makes it difficult to explore the environment.

For Voyager Mode my guess is, as I am playing Adventure Mode, that maybe there is a Hotspot Highlighter. Maybe I will switch over just to see but I prefer playing without any help. Over 2.5 hours in and so far the conundrums you face are no more than a novice adventure game player could solve and I certainly have to question whoever was the creator who came up with this feat...

SPOILER>>>
Click to reveal..
find a tin gas can and fill it up with Hydrocloric Acid then pour the acid onto a heavy duty, thick metal chain so the acid would burn right through it. That must be one heck of a tin gas can duh


One thing different in Syberia 3 is that Kate isn't stuffing her shirt with all kinds inventory items... lol
