Congrats, Glad you made it. The code you have on your last save before your final battle is the one everyone has used, since you don't get to save after the battle.
I couldn't tell what was on Pey'j's hand. They just showed it for a second. Let us know how you rank on the board. smile

Well I did horrible I guess. I didn't think I did that bad while playing the game but I do save a lot and I would run all the way back to save points after having successfully attacked enemy. Didn't realize there was a time issue on this game. I ranked 7830. I should have at least tried the pallet game on easy but didn't know that it counted either. Seems that the pallet game was more important than the races.

What's the Yo Yo Pearl thing? Also, where in the world would you get a hint for getting past the password for the first mission? Is it something from the game or should I descern it from what I see on screen? Have you gotten past it?

i am going to load up my game and get my internet code.

burpee, i also constantly went back to save spots. i think the time issue only applies to getting a good score. it doesn't affect the ending.

i still find it hard to believe that a person can complete the game the first time through in under ten hours even without getting all pearls and photos.

and the devoted fans who replay and replay so they know the game inside out to be able to finish the game in less than 3 hours doing everything doesn't seem physically possible. i know they say they reload a lot and avoid battle as much as possible to keep the time down but to finish in such a short time-- wow!

Maybe it's just my eyes but I thought that the person with the lowest score took only 9 minutes to finish the game. I also saw mention of FAST PLAY. I don't know what that is but I assumed it was a patch or something.

My feeling about the game is that I enjoyed it, it was beautiful, tough in spots, innovative, I did not find it short, some of the camera view controls stunk but I'm glad I played it and I'm keeping it.

I haven't taken it off my computer yet just in case someone tells me what Yo Yo pearl competition is and I need the game to play. If I don't it's coming off and another game goes on. I'm looking at Black Mirror...hmmmm smile

Burpee, When you get all the pearls, the game gives you a game disc, called the pearl game. It was like your save game disc. I didn't get anywhere with it. Maybe that's what the Yo Yo Pearl competition is.
I enjoyed the game and sure was not in a hurry to finish it fast. I'm like you, I didn't know there was a time issue on the game. If I had, I still wouldn't have gone any faster.
I know, I raced that 4th race over 100 times.
I'm going to forget about the Pearl game and play Syberia 2, if it ever gets here.

I have this game for GameCube...and I just can't seem to get into it much. Do I need cheat codes or something to make it more fun, or am I just being too impatient??

Kay, If I had Syberia 2, I'd be loading that one up too. Have a good time with it smile

Geekgirl, Do you like these types of action games? Can you tell me what aspect of the game is stopping you from enjoying it. Maybe I can let you know if there is more or less of it later on in the game.

Part of the reason that I liked it was that game made me care about my character. I liked the story development too and thought the puzzles (rather missions) fit into the storyline flawlessly. I really like 3rd person so that helped too. The fighting style is not much to my liking but that's because I haven't done much of it. I could find no cheats for the game and the trainer that I found didn't work with my game version. I think it is worth persevering a little more with the game. Photographing the animals is mostly in the beginning of the game to garner you some money to spend on goodies.

Don't know if this helps since it's only my opinion but I'd like to see you give a little more. smile

Mostly for now, I'm just stuck and cant' figure out what to do next. That short guy is trying to fix something in the cave...I've snapped a few photos....got some money....gave it to him, I think....but now I can't do anything...have some sort of tool thing, but can't give it to anyone. I don't know...the graphics are lovely....can't figure out what to do next though.

Have you tried talking to Pey'j? Your companions ususally will give you a suggestion as what to do.

You have to collect enough pictures of animals to make enough money to bring the protective field back online. There are plenty of different kinds around to make enough money to do that.

i checked out my code and it took a while to do this as i kept getting invalid code. My final save had a score of 6126.

kay, i think you are correct about the Yo Yo pearl being the game you get when you get all the pearls.

Zanthia: That's a very respectable score. Well done.

I'm quite certain that the Yo Yo pearl mini game is the prize for collecting all 88 pearls in the game.
