Syberia - Part 2
Too Much Talking!
Blah Blah Blah!! I enjoyed the original Syberia game but this one has you asking a list of questions to EVERYONE you meet. It is time consuming and annoying! I also don't like the way she comes to an ubrupt stop every minute. This one is not for me.

Terrible. Very boring game. Couldn't even play more than 10 minutes of it, free or not.

I was disappointed
I played syberia I and enjoyed it big time, but I was really disappointed from this game it ended too fast and there were nothing to do other than talking and running between scenes
I expected more...no role playing at all.....

Love this sequel!
I thought this would not be as good as the original Syberia. I was pleasantly surprised to find it just as fun (especially the puzzles) and the story line was good too.

What can I say it had me from the very beginning. I wish there were more the same.

Don't miss the Syberia series!
I'm not sure why Syberia 1 and 2 were rereleased as Syberia Part 1 and Syberia Part 2. They did some tweaking, esp of the controls, but I prefer the original versions.
This is such a unique, spellbinding, and touching game trilogy. Unbelievably a game where I actually like the voiceovers and music (I usually mute those, the only other series where I like it is Ravenhearst). It is a pure adventure game, lots to do, beautiful graphics and wonderful automatons. Yes the graphics are a little dated but it adds to the charm.
Also, for a rarity, a realistic lead female character not dressed with skin tight clothing and plunging necklines.
There is nothing like Syberia, I highly recommend it and can't wait to play Part 3!

On of the top 5 all time great adventure games
I am an old style gamer and started with the magical Myst in the early 90s - no internet, no walkthru's, just you and the wonderful world created by some outrageously talented developers, artists and scriptwriters.
Somewhere in my heart, I still long for those days when a game took weeks to complete and I completely got sucked into the atmosphere, the sounds, the characters and the storyline.
Since then there have only be a view like it here and there. Nowadays, once one gets stuck for a few minutes, off to the walkthru or strategy guide it is and a game hardly lasts longer than a weekend.
Syberia is one of the few and though it came out nearly 10 years ago, it has lost none of it's magical vibe. The story is just too wonderful and told very well, the game as a whole, with it's graphics, the music, the voices, just all of it is special and spell-binding.
As I said, it's definitly one of my top 5 adventure games of all times and I wished I wouldn't know the story, so I could play it over again and gaze in total wonder and amazement at the gorgeous sceneries that are so true you feel like you are right in it and part of it.
The puzzles/tasks flow well with the overall game, seem fitting, are challenging without being overwhelming = just right to keep your attention all the way.
This was done before anybody knew what HO stands for so no hidden object scenes, just good old fashion wonderful adventure play for hours.
I don't know how they did the splitting into different games, but the original came in two instalments. Anybody that ever even slightly liked adventure type games cannot miss this. Try it from the first one, as it needs to be played together and in sequence otherwise the story doesn't make sense.
I usually don't write reviews, but this deserves all the glory it can get. I very highly recommend this game.
Have fun on the way to Syberia!

Challenging large file game which will take you on a wonderful journey
I loved every aspect of this game.The challenge, the story line and the beautiful graphics all melted into one wonderful gaming experience. I was gutted when I finished although uplifted by the storyline. Have a go, you wont be disappointed. Just wish there were more like this.

Refreshingly different, challenging, but short.
This takes me back to those old MS DOS games like Indiana Jones. I liked them then, and I liked this one now.... a lot smoother flow too. It's very good game play, but having to go through the same dialogue, which makes it considerably less 'real', is cumbersome and a little tiring. The walk through certainly helps with this, but if you're tenacious like I am and want to do it on your own it becomes a little tedious. This is a very different game from the usual Big Fish list so enjoy something off the beaten track. Looking forward to the sequel.
