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 on the Nintendo Switch is a reasonable yet inconsistent port of an enchanting genre classic. This is an absorbing, intricate story filled with melancholy, eccentric characters and mystery demands and deserves attention, even if the game shows its age technically in some places and demonstrates a lack of care in the porting process in others. For fans of the genre, or those willing to dive in and forgive some inconsistencies, there's an endearing and worthwhile adventure here.

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.

The adventure genre has two sides. The first is the fun that derives from melting your mind to find solutions to problems. The second one, is exactly what it says on the box: adventure! Syberia is definitely not a point-and-click aimed at those who want to test their puzzle-solving skills - far from it. Syberia is an emotive, deeply immersive journey, with a fantastic lead; a lead whose development throughout this magical quest is undoubtedly a big part of the game's charm. Don't be discouraged by its age. Try it right now - just be sure to play the PC original, or a decent port that doesn't mar the experience.

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.

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.

‎It's clear why this game is a classic, ‎‎Syberia‎‎ is a great developed game that will grab you by the wayside. Whether you're a fan of the genre or not, Syberia is a game that goes beyond puzzles and adventure. A game that, despite some flaws and despite the age, manages to put down a story in a fantastic world. And if it's up to us, it's a game you should definitely play once.‎

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.

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.
