[Game] Syberia II

Syberia II still sports the same surreal atmosphere as the previous game, but it feels like it’s trying to tell the exact same story all over again just in a less interesting way this time, and the more I played, the more I grew confused as to why the protagonist was so invested in this whole affair.

Still, a pretty unique and usually overlooked gem that’s definitely worth picking up if you are into adventure games (but you should of course play the original first).

Positive: Negative:
Surprisingly well aged, beautiful visuals Boring puzzles
Mysterious, surreal atmosphere Feels a bit too much like a retread of the previous game
Well-written dialogue The motivation of some characters, especially the protagonist are not well expressed
Interesting characters Underwhelming ending that feels kind of incomplete
Interesting plot
