Syberia was a magical game that got just about everything right. Above all, it captured a real spirit of adventure that many adventure games ironically lack. The game's richly imagined, visually stunning world created a real sense of wonder and exploration. The puzzles were mostly interesting and reasonable, tying in to the gameworld smoothly and naturally. Syberia also featured an unusually well-rounded, strong heroine, Kate Walker. She began the story as a New York attorney sent to a small European town to close a business deal.
