Paradise

Syberia I & II seem to be two of the most popular adventure games of the 2000's decade. I didn't quite buy into it, they were decent but certainly no triple-A titles. Then Paradise comes after, Benoit Sokal's next creation, and strangely it gets very mixed reaction. But to me, Paradise just felt like a continuation of Syberia. It's a different story. Kate Walker is replaced with Ann Smith. The robot and mammoths are replaced with a black Leopard (er... Panther shouldn't that be?). The strange mechanical lands of Russia and Syberia are replaced with strange mechanic lands of Africa (which doesn't really look Africa at all). Same graphics, same type of puzzles and gameplay. It's basically just another Syberia game but a completely different story, one which really isn't that great (but hey, nor was Syberia truth be told). In Paradise the progression is slightly better with consistently good artwork and not too much backtracking. Syberia wasn't always great. But it also has some flaws. Firstly, you cared a bit more about the story and characters of Syberia, although that tends to happen as it was more than twice as long. Second, the bugs. Benoit clearly just spent his time on all the backgrounds instead of ironing out bugs. The hotspots for movement are terrible, a few times things just didn't work as they were supposed to. I did manage to get all the way to the end, however.
