These disks have been around for some time now, all they contain is code for the game distributed from Steam. While some disks tell the buyer what they contain others don’t. The days when you could buy a disk pop it into you’re PC and away you go are over, it’s called ‘progress’

Not having bought Syberia 3, I have little idea if it is the game we have all been waiting for or not, but reading all the players comments on Steam, most say that, apart from the game play problems, that its not. But it’s up to everyone to make their own minds up before buying.

As for me, if I buy a shirt, I don’t expect to have to sew the buttons on myself.

Dianne, your question was answered in this thread. Yes, it is windows 10, yes, the disk is a Steam installer, not the game.

Obi, there are lots of comments from players on this thread. Our official review is not yet posted.

Thank you, GreyFuss for your opinion of the game.

Appreciated !! thumbsup

It truly served to re-inforce my decision not to buy it.

There are just too many poor qualities to it - on TOP of it being a costly Steam Only release sad

I have two questions on the Syberia III release:

Would I be able to play it on my Intel 4600 HD Graphics card at 1.7 GB memory? The system requirements on Steam say 2 GB is needed.

If you buy it from Steam, can you just download patches without limit whenever they are published, or do you have to confirm your registration, pay for some upgrades etc? Are version numbers listed in any way to clarify what release you have, and what the relevant patches are?

Best,

Rich

It lists 2 GB for the "Recommended" video memory, so the game might work with 1.7 GB.
But there can still be a problem with the rest of the card not supporting features an R7 260X does support, or simply being too slow.

The Steam client automatically patches your game to the latest version. You don't get to choose which patch you want to use, and you don't get to save the individual patches separately.

Hi Jenny! smile

Thanks as ever!

Well, the Steam site does list 2 GB also as minimum memory for the Nvidia card, and the AMD R7 260X, which also has 2 GB, so I'm not too sure ....

I do have 8 GB RAM system memory, but if that can compensate for the lack of video storage?

So I wonder if I can take the risk.

So this Steam client remains active on your PC to apply more recent patches even after you've bought and downloaded the game from Steam?

Best,

Rich

You're right. I didn't see the 2 GB under Minimum the first time I looked.

In some cases it can, but not always. Depends on the game.

Yes the Steam client will keep your games fully patched.

You can use the Steam client in "offline mode"

but there are some "gotchas" with using "offline mode" and updates -- especially if you have a slow connection and more than one Steam game

Most of the pre-installed graphics especially in the older PCs are not adequate to run this game. The minimum is 2GB and probably 3GB or higher to be on the safe side. The cost of updating graphic cards is usually much higher than the cost of the game plus the cost of installing the card if you don’t have a friend who will do it for you.
Please, please be careful before deciding to buy, you shouldn’t need a gaming card to play adventure games and not many of us are into action games and shooting ups.

And most older PCs cannot be upgraded anyway... they usually come with grossly inadequate power supplies which would also need to be replaced. Gamers are demanding better and better graphics experiences, so the developers are upping the hardware requirements. Even the last Nancy Drew games needed a stand-alone video card.

Yes, a good point which I never mentioned. Syberia 1 and 2 had graphics more than pleasing to me, I was playing a good game not watching a movie.

the game also does not run well with a mouse and keyboard, controller is recommended. however steam big picture claims its not designed for a controller so work that one out. I found I needed both to get through the game.
the game also is described as a technical Disaster. I have played right through all the bugs and almost finished and now found I have left the something behind half way during the game so I cannot continue or go back as it has a stupid auto save. you cannot close the game until the wheels icon shows at the top right of the screen.
Backup your game file.

Exactly, not everyone needs all this overhyped frenetic full HD split-second realtime 3D action, unless you're into first-person shooters, I suppose. It's really idiotic when this becomes the standard to give your game any in-crowd and commercial credibility at all, which for us poor end-users boils down to having to dump all of our expensive hardware and software every two years or so.

Which is indeed what the computer industry appears to be demanding of us!

If anyone still wants Syberia 3, and wants it now, JA+/digitaldownload.com is currently selling it for 25% off -- $29.99 instead of $39.99.
https://www.digitaldownload.com/syberia-3.html

The JA+ version will still have to go through Steam, and if you're OK with waiting, there will probably be better sales. But if you're OK with using a gamepad and don't want to wait any longer, it seems to be playable now according to Mikael.

Sounds like they still have some work to do with patching.
An autosave which saves over previous saves is a terrible idea.

I have been enjoying the story, it's seems to be a very long game or either it takes a long time due to all the problems. the patch they released didn't seem to fix much but I would have to start the game again to see the full changes. I really can't believe they could put a game out in this state.walking up stairs and you start to walk inside the stair instead of on top, walking up the stairs using a arrow key and then next minute you are walking back down again. such a shame since we have waiting for so long to continue syberia.
I have to agree with a comment on steam forum......we want to thank the beta testers....lol

Unfortunately, I bought Syberia 3 BEFORE doing any research. I was just so excited to play Syberia again. What a deeply disappointing game after such a very long wait. There were so many glitches, and using the controls on my PC were maddening.
To make matters worse, I was well into the 2nd or 3rd chapter when I could no longer launch the game. I was NOT going to try to uninstall and re-install and begin again so I ended up watching the video walkthrough of the game and uninstalled the game on my computer.

I am now replaying the original Syberia and what a point and click joy it is. Sometimes you just have to leave a good thing alone!

A tragic end to the Syberia games - no way is anyone going to invest in Syberia 4 to resolve the cliff-hanger.

And the cliffhanger is a good reason to wait for a Syberia 4 before buying Syberia 3.
They really shot themselves in the foot.
