GSY Preview PS5 Xbox Series X PC PS4 Xbox One

It is never an easy thing to judge an adventure game in just a couple of hours of content, but what we've seen of Syberia: The world Before has left us pretty convinced that Benoît Sokal may have given us a posthumous gift worthy of the series' legend. There is obviously a huge responsibility for the studio in charge of the game's development as Kate Walker's iconic author could never see the end of the project as he sadly passed away in May 2021 but despite a disappointing third episode, fourth time could very well be the charm after all. From the two hours we have played, we have retained the pretty visuals, the more solid voice acting and the charming and melancolic atmosphere that suits the series so beautifully. Enon Zur has done a tremendous job with the OST once again, we like the fact that the plot seems to be taking its time to unfold, leaving us with the desire to learn more, and the different mechanics inspired from modern point and clicks just flow with the rest. It may still be a bit early to cry victory, but we want to believe in the game's potential to live up to its name.

    Sdarts I loved this game, you can play with different characters, each with their own abilities. You had a dash, that was basically like flying - Really cool mechanic. Squaresoft at its best. (1 Week ago)

    Sdarts Found the game I mentioned - never thought to look for it till now. The name is "Soukaigi": [url] Seeing some comments of people who looked for it for 10 years. Crazy! (1 Week ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts But got to a place where I couldn't progress further, because I didn't understand Japanese - before 2000, I wanna say. Really liked it and still remember it randomly sometimes. (1 Week ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts And then later their American versions. There was this Japanese game only released in Japan, I think it was from Squaresoft, the game was quite cool and I went very far in it. (1 Week ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts @nostradamus: Yes, PSX, N64 & Sega Saturn as well. Those days, I played a lot of imported games. I believe I played Final Fantasy 8 around 6 months before the US release. Tenchu 1 & 2 in Japanese. (1 Week ago)
