“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.”

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…

Far and beyond, a mystical Syberia awaits their arrival…

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.

Personal rating: "Very Good" = 4/5

PROS:

+ atmosphere of an adventure
+ fun puzzles
+ very good voice acting
+ smoother gameplay than previous game
+ likable protagonist
+ epic conclusion to the Syberia series

CONS:
- some puzzles are ridiculously difficult
- occasional graphic glitch
- maybe still a bit of empty running around

Comment:
Like I stated in my Syberia review it has been about 10 years since I played Syberia 2, which I never finished. Then I saw Syberia bundle on sale so I bought it. Just recently I finished Syberia which was good but lacked a level of polish. Syberia 2 picks up after the first game and you are plunged into the adventure. The voice acting remains really good. The story of the sequel is written very well and it is the high-point of the game. While having a cliche villain it still remains magical and fun. Gameplay is much better and even visually everything is much smoother. Puzzles are fairly challenging and fun .... well, most of them. And here is where I remembered why I had not finished the game back then. Very hard & difficult puzzles! Not many but just the few will make you frustrated with the game. In all honesty, while I get that devs wanted to add a flavour of challenge, the game would have done MUCH better without these. My pro-tip is to look through all the inventories for clues and items, EVERY TIME. And if all else fails look up a guide, there is no shame in that, the story is so good it deserves to be finished. So do I recommend? I indeed do, the game is great! But get the whole Syberia bundle!

A solid, but often frustrating, end to the Syberia saga.

The two Syberia games form a coherent, long-winded, beautiful journey, and they should be played together.

This game brings the Voralberg storyline to a pretty satisfying, if a little underwhelming, conclusion. I really grew fond of these characters, environments and Benoit Sokal's style of epic storytelling, and I was saddened to see it end. These games have some of the most memorable moments in adventure gaming history, even if the world feels a bit sterile.

The animation and the graphics are slightly improved over the first game. The gameplay is pretty much identical, however. My biggest gripes remain with the UI and the puzzles: 1) Finding "hot spots" is often like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Oftentimes you get stuck because you missed a doorway or a box of crates in some remote corner. Ugh. I really recommend keeping an FAQ at hand... 2) Especially because the puzzles can be really opaque and strange. Some of the puzzles are very logical and satisfaying. On the upside, the game is not trying to hold your hand. Everything is abstract and solvable. But unfortunately, on the downside, some of the solutions require a bit of psychotic tinkering.

(As far as a good FAQ is concerned, I highly recommend the spoiler-free (!) UHS hint system: http://www.uhs-hints.com/uhsweb/hints/syberia2/1.php)

Those who have invested time into the first game should definitely see the story to its conclusion. If the disappointing aspects of the gameplay - frustrating UI and obtuse puzzles - had been mitigated, this would have been a masterpiece.

Overall: 7/10

The sequel to the wonderful first game Syberia continues the journey of Kate Walker and Hans Voralberg to the land of mammoths. The gameplay is identical in nature to the first one and it's still stuck in the land of 800x600 resolution. I didn't find the story of Syberia 2 to be anywhere near the level of interest and engagement as the first. It mostly revolves around keeping Hans healthy enough to complete the trip. But reaching the final scene brought a sense of closure to everything the game has offered--a worthy adventure.

Our story continues with Kate Walker in Syberia 2. The game is a direct sequel that finally fulfills what we have been waiting for since the first game without giving out any spoilers. The game ends on a high note and the points leading up to it are surely interesting. I can't say much since it all is about the story, which is really all I ask out of this experience, and you will surely get it. Recommended to any adventure game fan.
