Far and beyond, a mystical Syberia awaits their arrival…

Syberia II continues the adventure of Kate Walker, picking up where the last game ended with her leaving her old life behind her to board a train in search of the Syberian mammoths to help fulfill Hans Voralberg's dream of riding one. Though it is still a good game I feel like it fails to reach the heights of the first, the mystery of Han's past has mostly been uncovered, Kate had essentially finished her character arc in leaving her old life behind her at the end of the first game, and while the mystical idea of Syberia may have been interesting in the first game actually reaching the destination to find mammoths, a thing that apart from Han's obsession is likely to be a very uninteresting subject for the player and likely hurts the game. There are some odd subplots and characters added, such as a detective trying to find Kate to bring her back to the law firm and two annoying cliched villains. Without a sequel, the first game could have been a somewhat satisfying ending but the ending in Syberia 2 just feel abrupt and raises a lot of questions, and while the ending of the first with her leaving everything behind to find a mystical land to fulfill someones dreams can end up feeling whimsical and empowering, you now deal with the reality that Kate has no real goals of her own other than helping someone she barely knows fulfill a goal that's probably going to be really uninteresting to the player. The visuals still look great, again giving you interesting locations to visit, the pacing and most of the puzzles are good, the journey is just more interesting than the destination.
