Introduction: 
Syberia II for the Xbox Live Arcade was released in May 2015. It was originally released on the PC in 2004. It is a point-and-click adventure and plays similar to the old 1990's Lucasarts games. Solving puzzles, gathering information and finding items to progress the story are key factors in this game. You cannot die or make any mistakes, so you are free to explore each location in full. However, once you move onto the next location, previous areas become inaccessible for the most part, so be sure you've found everything and talked to everyone before moving on.

In this game you continue your role as Kate Walker on her quest to help Hans Voralberg search for the lost land of Syberia. Your journey will take you to exotic locations where you interact with unique and interesting characters in the hopes of finally reaching Syberia and solving the mystery of the mammoths.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
To ensure all achievements are unlocked in one playthrough, it is recommended that you follow EXM9000's text walkthrough or Averse's video walkthrough playlist so you don’t miss a thing. The game can be completed in about 4-5 hours regardless of which walkthrough you choose, so start the game on the 'Difficult' mode, skip all the dialogue and always run instead of walk (hold down ).

Note: If you wish to take your time, read all the dialogue, explore the environment and enjoy all the game has to offer, this will likely take you more than 6 hours and you will miss unlocking the "Old School" achievement. If this happens, a second playthrough will be required.

Mop Up & 100%:
If you followed one or both of the walkthroughs, this step is unnecessary, but if you missed any achievement, unfortunately you will have the play the entire game again up until the achievement(s) unlock. Please refer to the text walkthrough or video walkthrough for more information.

Conclusion:
Whether you used a walkthrough or not, I hope you enjoyed this game. Although it isn't a remaster, this is still a very entertaining and enjoyable game with a wonderful story and interesting characters. Congratulations on another 1000!
