I reccomend it only for those who enjoy point-and-click adventure games, and whom have alot of patience. Honestly, I feel that I could have never played it and I would not have missed out, but I enjoyed it enough to reccomend it.
First off, if you have no patience, a walkthrough will be helpful.
Second, if you are patient, the walkthrough will still be helpful.
Really, the main attraction of Syberia (and Syberia 2) is the story and environments, the puzzles are basically an annoying obsticle to that. On that note, the story is interesting and the environments imaginative, inspring, and beautiful. What more can be said?
You want more game after the game is over? You want to accompany Kate Walker on her mad journey? Then get Syberia 2, which is just more of the same.
