I think this is one of those adventure games that has aged in a bad way. It's not that the puzzles are difficult, per se, but it has an extremely frustrating mechanic where you are forced to talk to the same person repeatedly to unlock the next part of the story, and if you click through the dialog at reading pace instead of listening to the full audio then it doesn't trigger the unlock. As a result you can spend a lot of time backtracking and sitting through conversations you already had just so you can interact with an unrelated object elsewhere, which in turn unlocks another long dialog in the first location. This would be fine if the characters were compelling, but the universe is just not particularly to my tastes - it is sort of a quirky magical realist steampunky thing that makes me wish I could get back to the "real life" story on the other end of the phone. Maybe worth the effort if the universe captures your imagination, but not for me. I gave up partway through Syberia II. For old adventures I would recommend The Longest Journey over this series.
