Reviews for Syberia 2
Great improvement over its predecessorlok0812 | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
Syberia 2 improves in all aspect of its predecessor, one of the major flaw of Syberia was the bad storyline which it is an important factor when it comes to adventure games. Syberia 2 storyline is just great and immersive, the pacing of the game is well put so you will be into it almost immediately after a few minutes of gameplay. In addition, graphic and sounds remains the same impressive state compared to its predecessor. This is by far one of the great adventure game out there. If you were disappointed with the first game then do not worry about this one because it is well worth picking up.

One of my all-time favorite adventure games. It improves on the first game with improved graphics and better game mechanics, especially dialogue. The graphics are no longer cutting edge as of 2012, but they are very nice to look at and complement the story well. Like the first game, this is more of an interactive story than a puzzle game. The puzzles are fun, but they are not the focus of the game. Most of the puzzles are solvable without too much difficulty. I used the hints a few times when I got stuck. An adventure game vet will not need hints too often. I can recommend this game to anyone who likes adventure games.
As good as the first partcrazybear86 | Oct. 21, 2012 | See all crazybear86's reviews »
Syberia 2 is the sucessor to Syberia 1 (who would have known that .) and continues the story of Kate Walker and Hans Voralberg. They are both still on their journey to find Syberia and who knows if they will actually find it....
The gameplay mechanics are more or less completely the same as in Syberia 1. Like in the first part we navigate Kate through beautiful designed 2d-backgrounds which in combination with the great voice acting and music are able to convey a great and unique atmosphere. The puzzles fit very well into the setting and atmosphere and are never too hard nor too easy. In my opinion they are even a little bit better than in the first part. The story is not able to keep pace with the first part but it still pretty enjoyable. Fans of the first part should definitely grab this one as well!
Good sequel but...Zinzun | Sept. 7, 2012 | See all Zinzun's reviews »
So,the developers want to give the first Syberia a sequel,but the game doesn't need it. The ending of the first Syberia was really good,but they want to "explain" that and proceed to narrate the "real" epilogue of Kate's adventure. Graphic,sound and artistic directions are pretty much the same of the first game,which is good too but the player really doesn't need it.
Good but inferior to the first titlepanz3r88 | Aug. 6, 2012 | See all panz3r88's reviews »
Syberia 2 continues and finish the story of the first chapter. The game is equal to its predecessor in terms of gameplay, but it's really easier and shorter. You will finish it in 5-6 hours if you are good in this kind of game. The story and the characters remain the best elements of the game.
The greatest adventure continues.Finka_Karfein | June 11, 2012 | See all Finka_Karfein's reviews »
How deeply can you change your life to make a dream come true? How far will you go to make a stranger happy? This game gives you the answer and proves that it is worth sacrificing a bit of yourself for another person. The story seems to me even better than in the first Syberia and the puzzles are a bit more engaging. However, characters talk with closed mouths and there is still too much running. Animations are better and music most beautiful. This creates again a whole which will let you submerge in the unique atmosphere of the automaton world. Embark on this adventure. You will not regret it.
Second part of the best adventure game!newn | Aug. 8, 2011 | See all newn's reviews »
As I already wrote in the review of Syberia 1, this is the only point-and-click game that I love. The second part seems to have the same great graphics, sounds, storyline and everything else as the first part of this game. Nothing went wrong, only better! The ending is even MORE amazing in this game than in the first part.
If you played Syberia 1, you will catch up a bit quicker, if you didn't - then it's going to be a bit harder because the point is a bit different than most games. Puzzles can be a bit too hard at the beginning - this part has got a 'rougher' start. Again - I think that this game is DEFINITELY worth the money and will give you at least a few hours of great pleasure, depending on how quick you can solve the puzzles and see the clues. It's a great game!
Decent game, but regresses from the original.niniendowarrior | April 14, 2011 | See all niniendowarrior's reviews »
Benoit Sokal's Syberia invited players to his wonderful surreal world full of interesting characters. Syberia 2 rides those waves of interest and wraps the story with a wimper.
Visually, Syberia 2 delivers the same impressive work that fans of the first will have gotten used to. Unlike the original game however, character design quality are fairly uneven. As usual, the CGI movies are well created and serve to further the story to its unsavory conclusion.
Syberia 2's soundtrack is great when it's played. The problem seems to be that they are not played that much at all. Most of the time you'll get ambient sounds, which is fine for the most part.
The game carefully retains the formula of the first game, but somehow misses the mark. There is an unshakeable feeling that something was lost in the transition from the first game to the second. The title clearly isn't as compelling could have improved over the first one. The game is slow to pick up, even for adventure gamers but if you stick through it, the game does have its moments.
The best point'n'click ever!ElMundo | April 5, 2011 | See all ElMundo's reviews »
Benoit Sokal's world is a unique and fastastic masterpiece! Kate Walker's adventures chains an attention for a long time and leaves a big and permanent mark in our mind. This is the best classic point'n'click among games which are avalailable in GMG. Absolutely recommend!
