When it comes to Syberia II and the problems you can encounter while playing, the developers have tried to resolve with some new patches. The thing is that the game is old and it belongs to a different era of gaming. Well not that different, but you get a general idea. Since 2004 a lot has happened in the gaming industry, not to mention to the franchise with the release of Syberia III. What can we say about the second part of the game? How was it different from the original?
Technically, Siberia 2 is noticeably better-looking than its predecessor, despite some of the remote locations lacking in diversity. The pre-rendered backgrounds and scenery are gorgeous, sharp and bright. Structures made of bone and natural materials are both rustic and intricate.
The puzzles have been influenced so they are now more accessible. But some of the items that can be found are easy to miss due to some odd camera angles. The familiar point-and-click adventure workload of ‘find a correct object for the task’ or ‘talk to the right person to get a hint’ is still being practiced, but the flow of the game can be affected by the inconsistent scenarios. Still, the experience is relaxing and.
The tone and subject matter of the Syberia games thus far have felt like looking through a window to an era, almost resembling a novel about a past age. It is true that a certain degree of mystery that made the first game so engaging does take a back seat here in favor of a more personal journey.
Syberia 2 is a curious creation, as it improves on, but it is also inferior to the original game. The gameplay is much shorter and players new to the series will have the classic first installment reduced to a short intro. The environments look great, despite their age, and the flow is advanced with more streamlined puzzles.
The Game as a Whole
The game has many bugs and issue that have to be resolved so that it can achieve its full potential. Even though it has slight imperfections, the game has had significant acclaim, and people love to play it. There are not so many problems in the game, and the bugs are at the minimum. Some situations might frustrate you, but all in all, it is a great experience and story.
