Gamer's Diary 2009-04-30

My latest cheap deal, Syberia II, arrived in the mail yesterday. This is an original Xbox game that is backward compatible on the Xbox 360, but I played it on my original Xbox.

It's a point-and-click adventure game, and I like those kind of games. I've enjoyed what I've played of this one so far. I find the story concept appealing, the artwork pleasant, and the voice performances competent though no more than that.

To me, the game has a distinctly European flavor. I can't quite put my finger on what makes it so. It's probably a combination of a lot of little things, like the protagonist's hair style and dress, the prominence of a train as the main method of transportation, and the interactions between the characters.
