3.0 out of 5 stars Most people will either love it or hate it. April 15, 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I had never heard of Syberia until I saw the DS version for sale and became intrigued. After having played it, I am left with a lot of mixed feelings:

1. This game can be frustratingly difficult. This is in some ways due to the small size of objects and paths on the screen as well as the main character's awkward directions of movement. However, I noticed while reading walkthroughs online that this game's puzzles are simplified versions of the PC version. There are not as many steps involved in completing the puzzles, but the difficulty lies in actually being able to see the objects you are looking for.

2. The sound quality is very poor. Additionally, the soundtrack is very repetitive because each level only has 1 song, and there are only 4 levels in the whole game. The image quality varies. The backgrounds are very beautiful and detailed. Characters are very noticeably pixelated, but it isn't distracting. The motion video quality is very good, though I noticed one movie skipped a few times.

3. The story is definitely incomplete, so it makes sense that there already exists a Syberia 2 (with Syberia 3 coming soon). However, I was a bit insulted by the brevity and suddenness of the ending. It was like I had played half of a game, labored intensively for several hours, and then it just ends. This game can probably be completed within 8 hours or so, though I didn't see an in-game timer so I'm not positive how long I took.

I conclude that the game is worth playing if you are interested in investing in the whole story. Also, the game should be priced at $19.99 now which is a fair price. As far as I can tell, there is no replay value. However, if you are into the "mysterious, extraordinary adventure" type games, you should be able to see past this game's flaws and enjoy it well enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Where Near as Good as the PC Version September 7, 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I would recommend the PC version over the DS version. She moves very slow from one screen to the next, and a lot of the humorous dialog and one-liners (and a lot of the wonderful voice acting) is gone. The beautiful environments look horribly pixellated. They could have made a great port that took the adventure genre a step forward on the DS, but instead they were so literal about it that it feels like a drab pixel-hunt with a stylus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Conversion December 30, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I thought this game was a nice PC Conversion. Nice music and the graphics are beautiful. The story is the same as the PC version: Kate makes a journey to places and with characters that border on the fantastic. The puzzles are not very complicated and are similar to the PC versions. The graphics and images are stunning to behold. This is definitely an artistic game. The conversion is not perfect - the interface is a little clunky and the dialog must be read on the screen - but still - you can play this game on your DS and that is well worth a little clunkiness.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Significantly Downgraded Port May 20, 2012
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I had actually only played Syberia 2 before starting this DS port of the original game. Since the original Syberia isn't backwards compatible on the Xbox 360, I was forced to pick up where the first one left off and attempt to catch myself up with the previous events. Even being thrown into a world/story I wasn't familiar with I enjoyed it thoroughly and found it to be a well made adventure game with an excellent narrative. Imagine my excitement when I found out they would be porting the original game to the DS. I would finally get the chance to experience the first chapter of this intriguing story. Sadly, the resulting game left a sour taste in my mouth.

The first thing you'll notice is the graphics. Blurry backgrounds with a blocky 3D character walking across them... SLOWLY. The graphics are even harder to forgive when you're trying to figure out what you can interact with. Sure you can use "the eye" feature, but for reasons unknown it doesn't always work. That means you'll be clicking around endlessly trying to find the correct pixel that contains the (normally useless seeming) item you need.

As I mentioned before, your character walks very slowly throughout the entire game. Since 75% of the game is spent walking (the other 25% is reading) this is a problem. I'm guessing in the original game this was meant to allow you to appreciate the pretty environments... but this is the DS version so the prettiest thing you'll see are the super compressed cutscenes with horrible audio.

The story itself is pretty interesting, but having to read the entire game via text (with multiple grammatical errors) takes a lot of the charm away. For a game based so heavily on the narrative this is a major flaw.

In the end Syberia for the DS may be worth a look for hardcore fans of the original game looking for an on-the-go fix. For the rest of us however, skip this version as it offers nothing but frustration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mystery / adventure game! May 9, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game overall. I had never heard of the game before until seeing it available on the DS. The story line is really intriguing, but since it was initially created for PC, the controls - mainly the camera angle - can get a little frustrating at times. Although it's minor, the main reason for the frustration is that it can be a little difficult to figure out where the character is supposed to go next. Also, I got stuck in a couple of places, but was able to read through the online walkthroughs and figure out my mistakes.

In spite of the minor camera angle irritations, I just completed the entire game and found the storyline really enjoyable. As someone who is a "russophile" and has traveled to Russia several times, I had a real appreciation for all of the cultural references to Russia in this game.

Since the game is more linear in structure, it plays like you're interacting with an electronic book. I would rate the story line about 5 stars as the game did a good job of holding my attention, but am rating it 4 stars overall because of the minor irritations with the camera angle.

Also, if you are buying this game for the younger crowd, there is some mild references to alcohol and language.
