Syberia Nintendo Switch £22.85 delivered. (Base.com)

So this is quite an old game now but it's actually quite an interesting point and click game to have when you're out and about. This was only released on Switch within the last week or so and the following 2 chapters are also releasing for the console too.

Can be had on Steam or probably PlayStation 2 and Xbox for far, far less but for the handheld element, maybe worth it to fans of the genre?

£11.78 for this game and its sequel over on GOG.


That's a fantastic price. You should really post that as Nintendo Switch deal and watch the temperature sore.

Dammit, I thought I'd covered the 'cheaper on .....' bases on the last part. My mistake

Far better deal here

​... and frequently much cheaper on both Steam and GOG.

Syberia is 15 years old at this point and I'm surprised it hasn't been ported to my toaster with the number of ports it's received. Whilst it's a very good game it's beyond shocking that they are releasing Syberia 1 and 2 on seperate cartridges and have the audacity to ask for over £20 for each. Don't support this.

More recycled games. The Switch was the worst purchase I ever made. Hopefully Odyssey will make me clean the dust off this machine.

Really ? After only a few months?! ffs give it time The good games will come.

This is available on android so portability isn't an issue.

They will probably be porting £1 games for £20 now. Or £9.99 games for full price (like Doom)

Great deal!

Good they are using their new hardware for something that couldn't be done before

I don't have a problem with the Doom port. Yes it can be had for far less on other platforms but it's a relatively new game and the port to Switch has been outsourced to a dedicated developer. It's pretty cool to see it running on Switch.

These Syberia ports are outrageous though. I could just about stomach Syberia 1+2 on a single cart for £20 (even though they've been less than a quid on PC and android multiple times) but to give them individual releases at this price is laughable.

Anyway I'll go back to the Syberia DS port now for some high quality handheld gaming.. or not.

Lets be honest, what great games has this really had? Mario Kart and Zelda? both of which were available on the wii u. Each to their own but as far as I am concerned the wii u is a much better console.

For my money, the Wii-U is the worst console I've ever owned, infact id day its the worst console Nintendo has ever released. The Switch on the other hand is easily one of my favourite games console ever.

Do you have for brains. A toaster can run this ancient game. Even you phone can. Get informed! Mono-console gamers, the worst

The Wii is where nintendo lost/betrayed the hard-core gamer, such as myself. I've never looked back. Even my friend offered to lend me the new zelda machine aka the switch.

The point was the deal was for a switch game, it’s pointless telling people it’s cheaper on pc.as for mono console gamer, loooool I can say with 10000% I own more consoles than you from acorn electron right up to the latest consoles and high end gaming pc.
Get back to watching dragonball n00b.

Soooooo. You're a mono console idiot that you were complaining about.

migavupe1 h, 28 m ago

Soooooo. You're a mono console idiot that you were complaining about.

Ps4 + pc + 20 emulators = 1...okay.

Pc is not a console, neither are stealing software on emulators. Bye now loser.

As much as we’re all dead impressed by the self professed value of our own equipment, it’s probably safer to stick to the topic at hand; since this isn’t about the PC or emulators/roms I feel we should keep to discussing the Switch version of Syberia, which in itself, appears to divide opinion.

agreed. I also stick to my original point that from a value standpoint it's far cheaper to buy these games on PC, than support the inflated RRP of this release.

For me the WiiU was awesome. It was just a miss marketed missed opportunity. So awesome in fact that Nintendo decided to recycle some of its games to launch the Switch with. It's a real shame when they manage to cream another £45 out of their existing loyal fan base for Mario Kart 8 "deluxe", and for me shows a real lack of commitment to their next generation of console, and a willingness to try and rip people off.

In the end, I'm not sure why buying a £300 switch stuffed with an over glorified mobile processor and a single game would be a compelling alternative to picking up a second hand WiiU with half a dozen games for less than half the price..

Each to their own though I suppose.

I'll probably buy one anyway.

Well, for one thing, the Wii U can’t be used as a handheld console. I take my Switch whenever I travel, I play it in bed, I’ve even had it in work for the odd lunch time, when that “over glorified mobile processor” can flawlessly play Zelda BOTW, I think it’s powerful enough. Each to their own and all, but i simply don’t see the value in paying even the Switch’s asking price for a Wii-U. Idnsooner splash out another £300 on a second Switch than buy a Wii-U now. It’s a dead, obsolete console.
