YMMV: Syberia
  • Anvilicious: The first game's plot seems like an attack on American culture.
  • Fridge Logic: Given how Hans Voralberg seems to have taken the time to set up everything he needed to get to Syberia some time before Kate showed up, a lot of questions get raised about how perfectly these inventions work and why Hans was still somehow unable to get to Syberia on his own.
    • He was able to get to Syberia for ages but he waited for Anna. Kate, who brought him the news of Anna's death, then became his surrogate big sister.
  • Designated Villain: Kate's employers and the PI they hire to look for her. They're not exactly nice, but their actions in the second game consist of them trying to find Kate before she disappears into the Russian wasteland and (they fear) dies. Their motives aren't exactly altruistic, but these are still hardly the actions of your typical antagonists.
  • Jerk Ass Woobie: Sergei Borodin
  • Porting Disaster: The Nintendo DS version, which stripped out almost all the audio and turned the game into a particularly frustrating Pixel Hunt.
    • On the other hand, the cell phone version won PC Gamer's "Oh my God it works" award.
