Syberia 2 is even more beautiful than the first game and seems to have been given a better localization as well, but it maintains a lot of the flaws inherent in the original. There are still situations where the solution to a puzzle is completely outlandish or even worse, situations where you know what you need to do, but you struggle with the game's interface to make it happen.
Andread more while the locations are more impressive than in the original Syberia, the story is less interesting because many of the mysteries presented in the first title were answered by the end, but the sequel doesn't add many twists of its own. The Disney-inspired villains and little mascot animal, the Youki, also seem at odds with the generally somber and faintly sad tone the first game worked so hard to convey. And like the first Syberia, the end comes very abruptly and offers little closure. Except this time, there isn't another game ready and waiting for you to continue the story.

Suberia II, which picks up where Kate Walker left off in the original, is just as good as the first one, if not a little better. In the sequel, Kate continues her journey to find the fabled Syberia and the mastadons, only to find that such a journey may take more than she first anticipated. The player will be taken to mysterious and far-away lands like before, but prepare for moreread more dangers along the way in your quest as you are dodging bounty hunters, a crazed Orthodox Catholic priest and his sect who will stop at nothing to keep you from completing your quest, as well as many other perils that await you. Benoit Sokal's vision turned to computer-graphic form shows that he is truly still one of the visionaries in story-telling as he takes many, many concepts that were not tangible before and makes them even more tangible now. If you enjoyed the first Syberia as much as I did, then Syberia II is a definite must-have for those that enjoy a wonderful story and a great point-and-click adventure,

Syberia 2 continues the story in Syberia right where you leave off, pursuing the dream of finding the last living Mammoths on Earth. However, whereas the first was propelled along by energy that came from its mysterious set pieces and dream-like plot, the second seems to run out of steam by comparison. Gone are many of the sweeping vistas replaced by run-down towns and snowy fields.read more The game tries to pick up momentum by adding the feeling that the main character is being hunted, but this never really shows itself until the last part of the game, and by then it really makes no difference. Don't get me wrong, the game still features great voice acting, an intriguing plot and some interesting characters, including a half-seal, half-dog creature that I only wish were real, but the game still falls short of the mark set by the first. When the first one ended, I was begging for more, when the second ended, I was merely glad it was over.
