“Like the final part of 'The Lord of the Rings,' the completion of the journey of Hans and Kate deserves the highest marks.”

About This Game

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…

After Syberia's open ending, Syberia II picks the story back up. Some of the puzzles in this sequel are more tedious but the story and scenery more than make up for it. Some of the places you need to click-and-goto aren't very obvious so make sure to always check the edges of the screen with the cursor.

Less motivating than the first one. Some puzzles were too complicated. The first half of the game was better than the second. But in overall Syberia II is one of the greatest point & click story rich games.

I would not recommend Syberia 2. I enjoyed the first one, and got quite invested in the story, but I feel as if Syberia 2 falls quite far from being as good as the first.

The first problem I have with it is the walking. There's a lot of it. Now, in the frist game, this wasn't so bad, as there were lots of interesting environments and characters, but this sequel just feels empty. I understand that, beyond the first village, you're in the middle of nowhere, so it's unlikely to be very populated, but it still just feels too empty, which makes walking around to solve puzzles a very slow and tedious affair.

The story itself is good, it follows on well. The puzzles themselves aren't too bad, aside from the odd one that requires a leap of understanding to get the answer.

As far as the art goes, it continues to be low resolution, but still fairly high quality. There is an annoying glitch with the character's mouths moving way too fast and not syncing up with the sound though.

Tl;dr not as good as the original. Not terribly bad, but not great. Play it if you're very interested in the story.

The story continues with Kate walker in this new version of the game. like the first it is a eally rich story line with very pretty places. more fun puzzles to solve in this point and click play style. again still has issues with cutting off diologs during game play wich is rather anoying but atleast you can still read the sub titles to know whats going on without missing what was said. To me though the game still is alot of fun and would recommnd this to point and click puzzlers with rich story lines. It's no Myst but its still really cool lol

Syberia 1 and 2 I played this game 10 years back... The awesome genius of Benoit Sokal game design still surprises me. The quest to the discovery of Mammoth. Gives us hope for to pursue our dreams no matter the age, cost and time. Once excellent story. I remebered most of the things cause i played it more than ten times so my completion in 6 hours. If you approach it fresh you will take your time to sail through the adventure.

The story itself is good (in my opinion you really gotta play the 1st one to understand/get the feelings for the 2nd).

The arts, Characters & Story, Were great, But the "puzzles" were REALLY FRUSTRATEING, Most things i managed to solve by walkin/running around doing stuff, But the more 1-screen-puzzles, I just couldnt complete, Even with clues found ingame and scribbleing notes n drawings on paper to try figure stuff-out, Trying my absolute best to try solve it, But in the end 9/10 times i ended up looking at walkthroughs, As it just was impossible to figure out, Several of those kind of puzzles were example press a random asortment of loads of buttons until something happend.

Altho, Even that the puzzles were basicly impossible to solve without walkthroughs (unless you are some kind of Genius or a Wizard). I still highly recommend the game, Due to the story and feelz. Looking forward to the 3rd game.

At one point you have to run for a solid minute to get to a puzzle, then walk back to get two lines of dialogue which enable you to solve the puzzle, then walk back to the puzzle.
The story can be summarised as "stop the unlikable old dude with no personality from dying at every chance he gets".

It suffers from the same issues as the first Syberia (the puzzles aren't great, lots of running back and forth across empty screens) but the story goes to some interesting places and the environments are quite beautiful. I went through it with a walkthrough and enjoyed it.

This game is a lovely little adventure. Travel around the world searching for clues to unravel a mystery. It's a puzzle-style game, where you "point and click" to interact with your environment and items in your backpack. Beautifully written and engaging story, with stylized backdrops for you to explore just long enough to enjoy them without ever getting bored. This game picks up just a little while after the first Syberia ends. So probably play that one first, then start this one.

I'll just copy/paste my review of Syberia here because you will want to play this if you liked the first one.

This is one of those games that is hard to take a break from. You want to know what's next in the story.
Well written and entertaining.

Short version: 88%
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.

Syberia II, the sequel to Kate Walker's adventure in Syberia picks up right where the first game left off, both Syberia games are to date some of the best point & click adventure games I've played, reach story, amazingly written characters, good graphic for it's time, great voice acting and overall an amazing game.

Syberia III is actually being developed and I can't wait to see how it will continue the story.

Excellent storyline defines this game's playability. Although the theme of the story doesn't seem special at all, the developer must be complimented for building a haunting gameplay upon it. Elements of longing, mysticism, fantasy, and mystery are well-blended, and will make you want to play further and further. Dialogues are well-written and entertaining. Visuals are dated and nothing special. While playing it on a 24" 1080p monitor wasn't a great experience – the blurry edges around all objects were quite visible – my enjoyment of the game wasn't impeded in any sense. Puzzles are quite straight-forward, and don't require any critical thinking skills; just be alert to your surroundings at all times, and pay special attention to all objects that your character can interact with, for be assured, such objects will have some use in the game.

The only irritant – a big one – in the game is its tedious gameplay. Your character will need to walk around a lot in order to solve puzzles and find things and NPCs. All that could've easily been bypassed by making the character appear at the location of interest with a single click. But no! The sadistic game designers make you watch as the character meanders her way to the desired location, which will make you terribly impatient and peeved, and you might even turn-off the game in anger...only to return a few hours later :).

SCORE: 7/10 (3 points deducted for tedious gameplay, average visuals, and unintelligent game design)

PS: To play the complete story, you will need to play this game after Syberia, the first episode that sells as a separate game. However, if, for some reason, you decide to play this game only, you will be briefed about what happened in the first episode via an option in the main menu. My recommendation is that you play both parts in order. This is a really good, no non-sense game, and its story will stay with you forever.

The ending is as fulfilling as I wished it to be. Syberia made me love and discover more point and clicks. Such a good voice acting. Everything about the series is precious to me. The music that starts playing whenever you're on the right track. I became attached to the characters as a kid. For instance, whenever Kate's mother would call (or her friend\husbando\boss), I was like "heck, who wants to go back home when such adventure awaits?"

Much freedom, such adventure, wowza. Waitin' for the third game.

OMG. Just completed this game and I'm SO HAPPY I got this game (from kangarooster)!
The game is a click game with alot of clues and puzzles. I must confess that I did sometimes follow a walkthrough because I couldn't be arsed to think for myself, but it does NOT destroy the experience since the story is so amazing. Actually got teary eyes at the end.

This is a game worth playing for just the story itself and I completed it in just over 6,5 hours, so just enough for this sort of game. PLAY IT! <3
