I'm glad you gave the game another try GreyFuss. I've been going through some similar thoughts regarding games that I'm not enjoying as much as I think I would have if I played them years ago.

I think your thoughts are spot on, Greyfuss. However, I think with this particular game, the third one was such a disappointment after the first two which people loved, they didn't really get excited about the fourth one.

I know that was the case for me.

I wasn't disappointed with the third game at all, except maybe the controls and save issue.

I also enjoyed Syberia 3, oldbroad. Once they added full mouse control I thought moving around was quite easy. It had a great story (if a little dark in places), challenging puzzles (but nothing too hard) and impressive graphics. The use of non-player characters that are roaming around gave the game a more communal vibe. While Syberia 1 and 2 will probably never be surpassed, I enjoyed Syberia 3 and can't wait to start Syberia 4.

OK - I was not going to put my $39 worth of comment in ---- until I read this post. Also, the cost of the game kind of put me off a bit - especially these days.. I did finally decide to get the game though and I played it for about an hour and much like GreyFuss, I was disappointed too.

I was wondering how much longer do I need to do all this reading and walking around until the game was going to start to get interesting. After a while, I got a bit frustrated, and walked away - I didn't care about the loosing my place by not waiting for a "Save" because I had no intent on finishing it.

I did play the 3 previous games and am very fond of the series - even the 3rd game I managed to enjoy! That was a long time ago. I see much too many of our beloved adventure games in Stick Drawings, Cartoons, 1980 pixilated graphics on a $3000.00 system with enough power to run NASA and a general dissapointment in what is available for us....... So I am being drawn back into Syberia, if for nothing else, but to get that feeling back like I had with so many past games like this one, and give honor to Benoit Sokal ( my sincerest condolences ) and Microids, who put an enormous amount effort into this game.

My curiosity is also kicking in now, so I will forge forward with it -- on an inspiration from all of you. thumbsup

oldbroad, I almost pulled the trigger last night because of this thread too! But I just got Skyrim this week... yes, I'm one of the few that have not played Skyrim!

Hi oldbroad - Thank you ! I will post on this again..

That is exactly how I felt too ... 39 buckazoids is more than I would like to pay for any game, but there have been sooo many games that I just can't see playing, much less buying because they look like were designed for the old Atari Consoles ! It is mind boggling to me that with today's technology in PC's and Game Engines, we get games that don't even look as good as LLL's Larry Laffer !!!

I do hope this plays as good as it looks. thumbsup

Hi BrownEyedTigre !

OK I will add a little to discussion - I have already posted that I started the game and stopped but will return. In all the posts here so far - seems like everyone is on the same page in that The game IS beautiful ! It Does play flawlessly ! and the stories are intriguing !

But I haven't heard anyone really talk the puzzles - and I do hope there are a lot of puzzles and not just an expensive "movie" smirk

Hi All - I just finished this game ...

The game was a delight in every way... the Story, the Scenery, and the Game Play all top-notch. The puzzles were a bit on the light side, both in the number of them and in the difficulty in solving them... but all-in-all it was a game I did not want to miss especially as a Kate Walker fan.

I am glad I played it.

I agree Sureshot.

I don't think there is a spoiler in what I am about to say but some may think it is so I will hide it
I got the feeling that when the game ended...that there will be more games but no longer in the Syberia world , maybe more adventures with Kate Walker

Hi Guys

I totally agree with Cookie, just finished the game and it was absolutely fantastic, again I agree with Cookie the controls in the game where a lot easier than in the third episode. My biggest regret is that this is the end (or is it think) I recommend all you Gameboomers to play this game

Cheers All
SAFC

Yes GreyFuss - I did get the same feeling.. The end didn't really seem like an "end" to me either. I don't think we saw the end of Kate Walker... at least I hope not. !

Hi all. I rarely post but I am making an exception for this game which I am currently playing. For me it is both delightfully enchanting and regretfully relevant given these current times. I have been playing adventure games since the days of Scott Adams and Infocom and I can't remember a game I have enjoyed as much. The criticisms about price, controls etc are,of course, valid, but imho the game's immersive quality outweighs them. I would heartily recommend waverers to give it a try
All the best David

Thank you, davidlemon! I plan on getting it once it goes on sale - I need to whittle down my to-be-played game pile first too.

As is usual for me, I had some trouble with the controls. I got terribly lost in the Cemetery even though a map is provided, also my standard practice. I played through a second time and improved a little at the controls but not at all with my sense of direction. Consequently I have to say I absolutely loved the game. I dawdled to enjoy the music and the scenery. The story line was well plotted and thank goodness Sharon Mann was back. It was wonderful to be in Kate Walker's company again. In hindsight the game was well worth the price. I got to laugh out loud and the game brought a tear to my eye. A bargain!
