“If you loved the first one or thought that it would be excellent if only the puzzles were more challenging, this is a game you will not want to be without.”
80% – AdventureGamers
“Like the final part of 'The Lord of the Rings,' the completion of the journey of Hans and Kate deserves the highest marks.”
100% – Quandary
“It has a great storyline that grips you from the get-go. Superb graphics, sound and music push Syberia II above being good, and just short of being great.”

Про цю гру

Having searched Eastern and Western Europe for a missing heir, Kate Walker finally completed her long and arduous journey, obtaining the signature of Hans Voralberg and closing the automaton factory buyout.
Mission accomplished? Not for this sophisticated New York lawyer…
An unlikely pair, young Kate Walker and old, eccentric Hans Voralberg now set off on a journey together: in search of the last of the fabled Syberian mammoths at the heart of a long and forgotten universe. The surreal quest Hans began alone several years ago will come to a final close as he and Kate face obstacles far more dangerous than ever before, testing their courage and determination.
Far and beyond, a mystical Syberia awaits their arrival…

Like the first game, Syberia II uses its slow pace and dreamlike atmosphere to immerse the player in its wonderful world of clockwork machinery and snowy landscapes. As an adventure game, it also turned up the puzzle difficulty, sometimes significantly.

Long version:
Syberia II is, from beginning to end, one large journey, continuing straight from the ending scene of the previous game. Once again, we participate in a long trip of the returning protagonist, Kate Walker and the mysterious heir she chased all the way through the first game, Hans Voralberg.

Syberia II is a sentimental tale, where the theme of the first game has matured into such questions as how long would someone go to fulfil their old dreams before their days run out, and how one can re-evaluate their purpose in life when they find a cause worthy enough to leave everything behind.
As with most stories full of allegories, it is very slow and very dreamlike. The scenery reflects how our protagonists gradually leave the edge of civilisation as the last post of humanity, a small post-Soviet barter town fades into the distance of the vast Russian tundra, where the end of the tracks may hold the answer in their search of the last resting place of the remaining mammoths, the mythical island called Syberia.

The game uses another tool to let the players immerse themselves in its world and atmosphere besides the slow pacing: the puzzles. They don’t use the warped point ‘n’ click logic that ruined many great games, but many of them rely on trial and error or constantly travelling from one end of a large gameplay area to another. The last third of the plot is especially notorious, where the difficulty quickly rises to almost legendary levels.
But all that hardship will be worth it. Worth it for one of the most bittersweet, wonderful endings we can witness in an adventure game.

Steampunk style point-and-click with really nice graphics (just remember it was made in 2002) and quite good voice acting.

Again you will play as young New York lawyer, Kate Walker (by the way, you probably should complete Syberia I first or you might miss out on background story). You will visit poor steampunk villages, weird eskimo caves, plane wrecks and winter forests, all in search of mammoths.

"Syberia II" is good, has the same shortcomings as the first one: neverending stair or ladder climbing and some "fetch quests" that are just tedious walking through the same eleven screens again (unfortunately there is more of those than in the first game...). But there are exciting puzzles too. For example the "Lemming Tunnel Problem" :-) The game took me exactly the same time as Syberia I to complete.

Following its namesake, Syberia II features the American lawyer Kate Walker on her voyage alongside Hans Voralberg, an stunded genius and Oscar, their automaton train operator. Like its predecessor, the game is set in a post-Soviet backdrop of unspecified geography and features various locations ranging from a Russian mining town, a Monastery, and Subarctic forests, to Youkol settlements and even a dream-trance state of Valadilène (the town from the first game) through all of which the player guides Walker throguh many difficulties of their journey.

The plot, straightforward as it appears, features many details regarding Hans' obsessions, as well as Kate's former life, flesh out the storyline. There is an underlining theme of the Hans' quest comes across as one of almost prophetic proportions, which lends the game an odd mixture of magical realism tinged by the Art Nouveau-themes steampunk of many locations.

The user interface is slightly cluncky and direction arrows may get slightly confusing at times. The same applies for the interface on puzzles: the game features only one icon for interaction (a magnifying lens) regardless of the nature or the direction of the said interaction. While this doesn't prevent puzzles from being solved (as they're not impossibly difficult anyway), it does nonetheless lack intutivity.

Overall, Syberia II provides a fitting conclusion to Benoît Sokal's great duology (soon to be a trilogy, apparently). Its simple combination of a beautiful plot with elegant artwork makes Syberia II a necessary addition to adventure game collections even after more than a decade of its release.

I finally understood why the main character is named Kate Walker. Because 15 out of the 20 hours necessary to finish this godawful game is spent on just walking.
