Informazioni sul gioco

Kate Walker, a young ambitious lawyer from New York, is handed what seems a fairly straight forward assignment - a quick stopover to handle the sale of an old automaton factory hidden in the alpine valleys, then straight back home to the US.

Little did she imagine when embarking on this task that her life would be turned upside down. On her expedition across Europe, traveling from Western Europe to the far reaches of Eastern Russia, she encounters a host of incredible characters and locations in her attempt to track down Hans, the genius inventor - the final key to unlock the mystery of Syberia. Her voyage across land and time throws all she values into question, while the deal she sets out to sign turns into a pact with destiny.

Un'avventura grafica veramente bellissima, piena di paesaggi straordinari e personaggi stupendi. La storia è molto particolare e, almeno per me, non sa di già visto. La risoluzione degli enigmi è poi esclusivamente legata al ragionamento logico/deduttivo a differenza di altre opere dello stesso genere. La durata non è straordinaria ma si assesta intorno alle 15/16 ore (sempre basandomi sulla mia esperienza di gioco e capacità di risoluzione dei problemi). Un titolo che consiglio a chiunque, magari con un po' di anni alle spalle per capire i vari riferimenti ed i climi che si respirano nelle varie location. Peccato che la versione Steam non permetta di concludere la storia; per farlo dovrete utilizzare la modalità compatibilità di Windows per l'eseguibile "Syberia.exe" presente nella directory di installazione del gioco e settarla su Windows 98, inoltre dovrete spuntare la scritta "esegui il programma come amministratore". Una volta fatto ciò il titolo si avvierà senza applicazione Steam associata e potrete concludere l'avventura.

Syberia is a slow, melancholic adventure game, where the somewhat dreamy atmosphere and the large playable areas, combined the wonderful writing and charm, can easily enchant anyone.

Long version:
Clockworks and mammoths: interesting combination for any story. Thanks to Benoît Sokal though, Syberia managed to build a touching, emotional tale around this pairing, then wrapped it into a classic style point ‘n’ click adventure game.

Like most stories about old people chasing their old dreams, it is quite melancholic, but never too sentimental. There are no boring tales from a bygone era. Quite the opposite: in this game, we control an energetic New York lawyer, Kate Walker, who involuntarily ends up in an adventure from the French Alps to the heart of Russia, chasing the long-lost heir of a toy factory, so he can sign some sales contracts. Along the way, we learn a lot about this mysterious person and his life, and also meet some odd, but strangely memorable characters.
These people, like the whole setting, feel like as if they are stuck a century ago with their old clothes and the early 20th century buildings they live in. This anachronism works in the game’s favour, letting the player get immersed in the atmosphere and the slow-moving, yet great storyline.

A warning though: when I said the story is slow, I meant it. If you want a game where there is always something going on, then Syberia won’t be for you. It is slow even for an adventure game. Not to mention that all main areas are built from several dozens of screens, of which many serve only transitional purposes. They help a lot with building a believable world, but they also wreak havoc with any kind of pacing.
Still, Syberia offer a chance at a journey nobody will regret. Or, more precisely, the first leg of a memorable journey that is continued in the wonderful sequel…

I played this game when it first came out (before I got it on steam) and the story is so well made! And the puzzles are actually difficult which is missing in a lot of new games. So if you are a fan of point and click games like me and are missing puzzles that are challenging you should play this series!

This is still a solid adventure game, but, wow, it's aged really badly. I guess that's what happens when you are so impressed by your art work that you make the player repeatedly run through empty environments to get anywhere, which look a lot less impressive these days than they did in 2002.

Syberia is a classic point and click quest. This game did not brought anything new to genre, there is no challenging puzzles, but still, this is one of the best games in this niche.

Kate Walker, a young lawyer from the United States, arrives in tiny european town to sign a contract with owners of old toy factory. At first this journey looks like a routine job, but it quickly turns into long, difficult and amazingly interesting adventure.

Game is very beautiful. Art style is fantastic, every screen is well created with a lot of attention for small details. Also, there is excellent, slightly melancholic soundtrack, that fits perfectly for the mood of the game.

Storyline is well designed, characters are charismatic and it was especially interesting for me to observe how gradually changes the personality of Kate Walker. With time she realizes that money and career is not the most important thing in life, there is something else... something important and special. From my point of view, Kate Walker is attractive and interesting character, she got true individuality. Ending of the first part is one of the most touching scenes i had ever seen in games. I took a tissue.

Puzzles are logical, they fit well in the story, i did not noticed anything annoying or non-logical. Puzzles are interesting enough but not difficult or challenging and maybe it is for the best, so they do not distract player from the story.

Can i give a little criticism to this game? Well... i did not like the animation of characters. Kate Walker looks good enough, but other characters move as dummies. It looks especially ugly if compare animation of characters with stunningly beautiful suroundings.

Sometimes there is a little too much of old cliche. Crossing the border between Europe and Russia looks like expedition into depths of Mordor. And when it comes for Russia there is always "slums, bums and drunkards" and other "winter-vodka-bear" stuff. Well...

...nevermind, i just can not criticise this game. Syberia had touched my soul.
I played a lot of games and i can say this words for only few of them: this is masterpiece. Strongly recommended.
