:| Ouch!

Syberia was almost brilliant on the PC, but the developer had The Longest Journey to live up to. Didn't quite manage it.

After reading the comments in your blog, this review actually sounds generous. I still can't wait to read Lewis's review for... um, that game he's playing that he hates.

In other new, it's 6am and I'm going to bed.

I'm actually about to write one up for HG as well, so you'll be able to see my thoughts before the next issue of Reso!

I liked this review. I thought it was rather well-done, and the intro was clever. Haha. It's probably a good thing you didn't treat the game the same way you did in your blog because that might have set too negative a tone and thus led to another debate or something.

Granted, I probably should've slipped this line in there somewhere:

"The DS has become a port system. This is... well, I'm not sure what it means. Sometimes I'm grateful, because it brings me (and a new generation of gamers) classics like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 4.

Other times it fucks things up royally. Like in Syberia."

I'm not sure why I didn't, actually.

On the other hand, I always try to be fair, especially when I haven't beaten a game. For all I know, everyone who beats Syberia DS gets free blowjobs. All I can say for sure is that the first few hours of the game are exceedingly painful.

Hey, I should've put those lines in there, too. Dammit!

For those frustrated with the game, here is a walkthrough for the DS version.

his introduction is awesome:

Welcome to (currently) the only DS version walkthrough for Syberia. If you're reading this because you want to know what the game's like before you buy it, don't bother. Don't buy the game to begin with. It's head ache after head ache, and more stress than the short game is worth. Buy the PC version instead for $10. The thing with the DS version is that it's been cut down quite a bit so that only the most important things remain, but there are still enough plot holes to confuse you.

Isn't that encouraging?

Also, most of the things that you have to do in this game are never explained. There are no clues to lead you to the next point. You have to stumble around and figure it all out on your own. Or you used to. Now I'm here. :-D "
