Syberia Saga

Post by AndreaDraco » Mon Nov 03, 2008 2:14 pm

I just noticed that these two games - which, in the end, are only one huge game - hadn't been mentioned yet.

They are amongst my favorite non-Sierra adventure games, even if I can't really stand the mechanical puzzles they are filled of. But the story is - at least in my opinion - so powerful, the characters so likeable, the graphics/sound so masterfully executed that I was totally drown into them, despite of levers/buttons/gears and all other strange mechanism.

I cried no less than four times during the whole gaming experience and yesterday night I was re-watching some of the videos, and - at the finale - I cried once again! ;)

What do you think (of them, not of my whimpering :lol: )?

Syberia is BOOOORING. Snooze-fest for me. With the dreary bland colours, boring soundtrack, and non-engaging storyline. My opinion, of course. My wife enjoyed it, though.

I still need to get around to playing the second half. I was so pissed off when the credits ran before I got to see any mammoths.

I enjoyed both games, and although I too was very frustrated at not seeing mammoths in the first, I was pleased that the second picked up right where the first ended.
