Syberia 3 – PS4
Syberia 3 showed up on the shores of MUReview.net this week and we got a chance to check it out. We’d like to thank Microids for sending it to us for free for review. Syberia 3 is, if you can believe it, the third game in the Syberia series. The last game in the series, Syberia 2 was released in 2004, so it’s been a while. This entry in the series, 3, was originally slated for release in 2010. So after at least 7 years in the oven, let’s see how the series holds up! MUReview performed this review against the Playstation 4 version of the game.
- Engrossing, compelling story line.
- Creative, fun, and engaging puzzles.
- Solid graphics throughout the game, crisp, sharp.
- Functional intuitive control scheme.
- The color palate and tone of the visuals in the game capture the intended mood of each scene and environment very well.
- When voice acting is good, it’s very, very good.
- The biggest hindrance for me in this game is that you begin the game with little to no reference to story prior to this game (Syberia, Syberia 2). I had to dig and do my own research on the Internet.
- The game does have it’s share of bugs. Lip sync at times is off putting. Frame rate problems, a few rough clicks / target areas.
- When voice acting is bad, it’s pretty rough.
Syberia 3 is just getting started for me. I look forward to spending more time with it and getting through all of the games intricate puzzles. That stated, this review encompasses general feel of the game, play-ability, surface features. I avoided a full playthrough for a few reasons, spoiling the game for you chief among those reasons. If I know what’s going to happen I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut! That said, we have had a good time so far with Syberia 3 despite it’s hiccups and we think you will enjoy it too…so much so, that we are going to give away a copy! Keep reading!
Syberia 3 is out now for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. What’s really cool though, is that MUReview will be giving a copy away for either Xbox One or PS4. Check out the giveaway here!!
