“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.”

Far and beyond, a mystical Syberia awaits their arrival…

Syberia 2 is a casual exploration game with a lovely story and marvelous visuals. It's hard to find directions at times and there are no clues for some puzzles (it's just a matter of trial and error to solve them). But, since you shouldn't play this game for intellectual challenge anyway, but rather the story, I suggest to use this walktrough guide: http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcSs/syberia2.htm. Also, there are some geographical and historical inaccuracies in the story, but don't be too fault-finding. View Syberia 2 as a modern fairy-tale.

Although, this game is better than it's predecessor in every aspect, somehow I didn't enjoy it that much. It's still worth buying for a calm and relaxing experience. My overall rating: 7.5/10.

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.

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.

I played this game a long time ago and decided that I wanted to play again since I used to love this game. The graphics are nice, considering the age of the game. It has breathtaking backgrounds, definitely enough to look at. The music and voice acting is very good as well. The gameplay is your standard point-and-click adventuring. There are some disadvantantages, it takes a while to go from a screen to the next which can become frustrating. Often you need to go between screens to try and complete some sequence of actions or find some item you missed, this takes forever! Fortunately the story is very good and really worth the hassle with the pixel hunting. It is also an option to play with the help of a walkthrough just to enjoy the story, it is worth it! When you are a adventure game fan, play this game! If you are not, the gameplay might get extremely frustrating but I would still say play it for the amazing story!

Personal rating: "Very Good" = 4/5

PROS:
+ amazing story telling
+ 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

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.

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.

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

The only major irritant in the game is its tedious gameplay. Your character will need to walk around a lot in order to figure out the problems and proceed further in the game. All that could've been bypassed by making the character appear at the location of interest with a single click. But no, the designers make you watch the character walk all the way to the desired location, which will make you impatient; 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. Having said that, for some reason if 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.

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

A worthy sequel to a great game. The story is just as good as in the first installment, the atmosphere just as unique but a little less melancholic and the puzzles are much more challenging.

A great second game and was more of a continuation than a sequel. Amazing artwork and wonderfully crafted plot creates a details and enchanting gaming experience. Again not at all tedious for a point-and-click adventure, and the only difference from the previous game is that the puzzles are a more challenging. Always a walkthrough if you get stuck (and doesn't take away from the experience). Cried towards the end. Great game, loved the characters.

I've only put 42 minutes in the game so far as I type this review. I'm also stuck on the first level because I'm really stupid and can't figure out puzzles. It took me like 3 months to finally beat Portal 2, and that was with looking up the solution to puzzles on the internet.

Anywho, it's only 99c as this review is being typed.

So go buy it.
