Syberia is the game that we know, but has been adapted for Nintendo Switch with almost the same graphics and few options for the touch pannel. However, it has a deep story, lovable characters and great gameplay for a 15-year old game.

A great port of an old game that it's still interesting, despite the years.

Syberia for Nintendo Switch is the best console console version of the cult adventure game at the moment - thanks to various settings, great touch controls and original graphics and content from the PC version. Despite some problems, the game is very addictive with its story, bright characters and unique atmosphere.

Syberia and its sequels suffer a common fate with many classic games released on the Switch. It is expensive. 15-year-old PC games should not be double the price of pieces of genius like Celeste, there is a problem. Nostalgia should not extend to the feeling of knowing you've been ripped off because Electronics Boutique is the only store in town that carries the game you desire. If these games were half the price, I'd suggest looking in to two hidden gems of a mistreated genre. As it stands, I hesitate to whole-heartedly endorse it. Fans of the series may get a kick out of it, but there's so much more out there.

Microids has done an excellent job of porting the classic point-and-click adventure to Switch. Kate Walker's epic first adventure in Syberia is every bit as gripping today as it was 15 years ago when originally on PC, and it fits perfectly on Nintendo's system, boding well for the impending releases of Syberia II and Syberia 3. Hopefully this is the first of many point-and-click adventures brought across to Nintendo Switch.

There are no guns, fights or scary scenes, just a good adventure with some engrossing puzzles. For me, it was best played in handheld mode on the Switch, not that it was bad in any way when docked, but it just felt better as a mobile game. I am interested in seeing where Kate goes next, which makes this great, as both the sequels are also already on Switch as well.

Syberia is the first in a trilogy of puzzle / adventure games. It delivers a Victorian charm backed up with great music and images with a simplistic puzzle-solving approach. Though I'd like to recommend it, the price of the game means that you’re better off looking on other platforms.

Syberia for Nintendo Switch is a solid port for a 15 year old game. In some regards it hasn't aged very well but the story and beautiful places to explore are still as charming as in 2002 and the Switch's handheld mode is suited perfectly for this kind of game.
