As I probably won't get the game due to all the negative reviews I will propbably go to the gameplay walkthrough so I can at least see the game without the frustrations. Just one question, What is the matter with the gameplay walkthrough that Oldmariner said not to use under any circumstances.

Regards,

Barry

I also loved The first two Syberia games. I doubt I will buy this one because I am not a fan of keyboard controls (although one had to use them a lot for Tex Murphy games). I think it's only natural that the developers went in the direction of making the games more for XBOX and PlayStation simply because that is where the money is now. and younger people are practically born with an XBOX controller in their hand now.
I think the deal breaker for me will be the auto-save. I detest games that only save when the developers think it should save. As Mikael mentioned above, having to replay parts of a game simply because one can't save is rather ridiculous.
At any rate, I hope the developers are able to satisfy enough of the people who waited a long time for game, as well as attract a younger, new audience.

OMG! I only wanted info on the likelihood of getting a walkthrough. I find so many people venting thier spleen about Syberia 3! I do have a "games" computer that works with Terybites, so was looking forward to my new game in a couple of days. Played the first two on XP no probs at all. I also played All the broken sword games on XP no probs there either. I do not even own a joystick so please tell me what I have spent £16.99 on? Will I not be able to play the game. I can't go forward on a bicycle, never mind backwards! Oh woe, woe, and thrice times woe! Helllllpppp!

Probably because if you intend to play it yourself, the YouTube playthrough is a spoiler. If you don't intend to play it anyway, that's not an issue.

This did not read like one of those reviews written by someone who does not like Adventure games.

That review makes it sound unfinished. From what I've read, a lot of modern games have this problem on release. They're released in an unfinished state and depend on a succession of patches shortly after release before they're actually playable. Some new games aren't playable at all except in the console versions (as with No Man's Sky). Gamers with PC versions have to wait for patches. It's one more unfortunate result of combining a PC release with a console release and depending on subsequent downloads to fix issues on PC instead of releasing a game that's finished.

Benoit Sokal has always insisted that if he did a sequel to Syberia, it would have to be on console. He wanted to do it on PS3 when that was current, but it was over 10 years before he got backing for developing a Syberia sequel and PS4 and XBox One are now the current consoles.
Syberia 1 and 2 were developed by Microids Canada, which went bankrupt due to non-payment by certain publishers. Syberia 3 is developed by Koalalabs, a much newer development company that developed Dracula 4 and 5 and has no relationship to Microids Canada.

If you managed to play Broken Sword 3 without a problem you may be able to cope with the controls in Syberia 3 even though they're not ideal. Even Steam is currently only advertising "partial controller support." Since you already bought the game, why don't you try it and see?

Wow, I, too, am only looking for a WRITTEN walkthrough for Syberia 3. I have played the first two many times and love them.
Any chance that a written walkthrough will become available. I've found a partial one, but I despise partial (incomplete) walkthroughs.

First let me say that even though I don't like any Auto-Save feature in an Adventure game this one is tolerable as for me the triggered spots are not far between like some games where you have to replay a large portion of the game to get back to the same spot.

I am 20 plus hours in and besides the controls and the sometimes black loading screens (15 to 30 plus seconds) which I don't know if its my computer or the game, I quite like it. I believe what we enjoyed so much of the first 2 games was the total immersion one felt into the story and game. This is what is missing so much in this game is losing oneself into the game world because the control system and the loading screens keep disturbing your total attention. So far I like the story and its so nice to here Kates voice again so after coming to grips with the controls and knowing I can't do anything about that, I am having fun.

Buuuut...right now I am in a game stopping glitch that I had to check the Steam Discussions, which I don't like to do, and see if its just me or others have experienced the same. Apparently it is happening to many players and supposedly a fix is being worked on, I think. At this certain part of the game Kate will not walk up or down stairs. After many reboots of the Steam software and a recent Steam update I was able to walk down the stairs I had trouble with before..............however, now I can't return up the same set of stairs and without being able to return I have no where to go....I think lol

Thank you all for letting me know what it is all about. At least I understand what is going on. I have already bought it, so I will indeed at least give it a go. I am sure my computer is strong enough to take on the game but I will not be able to work out patches etc! I may leave it till a written walkthrough may be available. I like to play without help but if I am very stuck I use the walkthrough to get past that point. I am jealous of you that are already playing the game but can't see me getting through it on my own this time. (Sob)

Any patches are automatically installed by Steam so you don't have anything to do there. And don't worry about a Walkthrough as the game isn't very difficult, no more that the first 2 games.

Really looking forward to this, as many others are. Even went back & redid 1 & 2...
A request: if anyone does see a written w/t, as other(s) have requested, please post a thread/link (assuning that's ok with our moderators). I find 'most' videos not enjoyable..it's rare to find somebody who does gice good commentary, for one, and seeing the result beforehand takes away some from the enjoyment of the reveal. Thanks!

Sadly I am dead in the water. After the last Steam update I managed to get down the steps that had me stuck in the Post a few above. I managed to go down the stairs, completed retrieving an item down there and now I am unable to go back up the stairs that I came down by which is the only way out. And as luck would have it, the game automatically saved after I retrieved the item down there so a re-load puts me in the same place and problem. I have tried all day with different attempts and angles to the steps and different resolutions. Again there are many others in the same boat. Hopefully they can fix this snafu because unfortunately I won't be starting over and suffering through all the controls again just to end up here again after 20 plus hours. Bummer as I was finally enjoying the game. smirk

And THAT is what is wrong with auto saves only. Sheesh! After 20 plus hours I hope they fix the problem soon GreyFuss and you can move on.

I am sorry to hear that Greyfuss. And i agree about the saves. You can make backups of your save folder periodically next time so that you have something to fall back on. The saves are located here: AppData/LocalLow/Microids/Syberia3

I was going to get an xbox controller but based on Mikael's comments and the Steam notification, I may well not bother.

Thanks Sheriff
Is that the full path of where the saves are. I can't seem to find that on my computer even using the search. Maybe its because its been so long since I have been inside the file system I have forgotten how to do it or maybe its just age. smirk I will Post over on Glitches for som help. I was thinking of backing up that save and uninstalling the game and trying a fresh install to see if that helps

Sorry if I don’t mean to offend anyone but I treat buying a computer game is the same as buying any other product i.e. I expect it to work. If they had decided to produce this game for an Xbox and not a PC they should have made that fact abundantly clear at the launch, or better still before.
By and large adventure gamers’ are not a picky bunch; we have all struggled with gameplay problems and coping with bugs but surely there is a limit.
After years of patiently waiting with many false dawns, gamers are now shelling out 40$ for a product that for most is unplayable. If we don’t take the gloves off and make it loud and clear that this is not acceptable, then the future is grim. Would anyone buy a car with the stirring wheel as an optional extra?

I've played for 6 hours and still can't get used to selecting and using inventory items but for some reason I don't mind the keyboard controls. Broken Sword 3 is one of my favourites,so maybe I'm sort of used to it. I notice that sometimes I use arrow keys, cos I'm right handed, instead of WASD but either is fine with me. Had to run a program to raise gamma within the game. Using 'full graphics' but found early locations too dark. The story and environments have me hooked. My loading screens are around 5 to 7 seconds, no glitches so far. I'm just loving the game smile

Yes the Inventory system is clumsy at best and eventually you will get use to the clumsiness. The loading screens seem to get longer as you progress in the game, at least they are for me. On another note, uninstalling and re-installing the game did not correct the problem I have and will most likely be Dead In The Water until a Patch (hopefully) can be made by the developers. I hope it doesn't take too long as I may lose interest or forget the story.

I don't mind using WASD as long as I can steer with the mouse. So I guess I'll wait until the patch comes out & the games price becomes reasonable.

According to a Steam Member's Post, on the Microids Facebook page they have stated that updates should be seen in the next 24 hours. I don't know for sure if this is real or, if it is, when it was posted. I am not on FaceBook so maybe someone here that is could verify this and tell us when the message was posted.

Yes, a couple of hours ago Microids stated they will reveal the 'Contents' in the next 24 hours, of the forthcoming update that their studio is still working on...
