You take pleasure in beautiful graphics with fine textures and all in three dimensions? You also enjoy arcade games where you are in a superb space ship and you must destroy all sorts of wicked creatures while zig zaging more or less majestically in the air? But do you also enjoy adventure games where in order to stay in one piece one must have some flair? If you answered YES to these three questions, no need to search any longer, "CYBERIA" is what you need!

Monatelang schlagen wir uns schon mit Produkten herum, die nur aufgrund zahlreicher und meist lächerlicher Videosequenzen mit dem Titel "interaktive Spielfilm" prahlen. Doch jetzt ist damit endgültig Schluß: Cyberia zeigt auf eindrucksvolle Art und Weise, wie ein Film zum Mitspielen aussehen muß! An diesem Spiel müssen sich in Zukunft alle Konkurrenzprodukte messen.

Power Play
Endlich hat auch Interplay den „New Technology“-Vorzeiger und er ist wirklich gelungen. „Cyberia“ entpuppt sich als gelungene Action-Adventure-Mischung mit grandioser Grafik in den Flugsequenzen und einigen netten Rätseln im Abenteuer-Part. Technisch ähnlich brillant wie Argonauts „Creature Shock“, ruckeln die Full-Screen-Landschaften selbst auf einem Single-Speeder nicht und machen mit der recht guten Joystick-Steuerung rasanten Spaß – das Auge fliegt mal wieder mit. Die Adventure-Einlagen verdienen zwar besonders anfangs ihren Namen kaum, laufen aber am Ende des Spiels fast zur Höchstform auf.

Kurzum: Ich mag Ballerspiele, vor allem, wenn sie - wie in diesem Fall - eine fesselnde Story haben. Und auch die räselgespickte Adventure-Einführung habe ich liebgewonnen. Der Genremix mag ungewöhnlich sein, aber mir hat er gut gefallen.

Det finns inte mycket mer att säga om Cyberia än att det är ett oerhört bra spel, omväxlande, fartigt och klurigt på en gång, med en otrolig grafik. Det enda som drar ner betyget lite är att det är lite för svårt. Till och med när den lägsta svårighetsgraden valts krävs alltför många "omtagningar" för att klara av varje problem eller actionsekvens. Men det felet skulle ju i och för sig också kunna ligga hos undertecknad, så varför inte pröva själva?

L'une des plus belles réalisations disponibles, à base d'images de synthèse.

אבל, מלב השילוב של קטעי וידאו, קטעי אקשן וקטעי הרפתקאות - המשחק הזה מקיים מעט מאוד. הקטעים פשוטים וצפויים, מה שמותיר אתכם עם מעט מאוד מתח.

Lots of arcade action and gut-grabbing graphics. Experienced gamers may be disappointed with this fancy shootin' gallery. Lots of flash and a few puzzlers, but like Chinese food, it may leave you hungry an hour later.

There's also some really nice character animation, though I for one will be glad when a designer finally comes up with “synthetic actors” that look like people rather than puppets. But people will buy CYBERIA, if they buy it, not for the character stuff but for the flying sequences that its showpiece. And basically I see nothing wrong with this – heaven knows my pocket and my heart were both a good deal lighter when I left that Manhattan arcade more than a decade ago, and maybe that's as much as you can ask of a game. But I'd like to think it's not. I'd like to think we've made some progress over the past 12 years, that we could do better than recreating, with today's glorious technology, the rather elementary games I played as a kid. Mind you, I don't expect target-shooting games to vanish – I wouldn't even want the to. I'd feel better about it, though, if they weren't heralded as one of the hottest new development in computer gaming.

Claimed to be over 2 years in the making, Cyberia is billed by Xatrix Interactive Design as “an arcade/adventure game that pushes interactive entertainment to the next level”. Whether or not this laudable claim is true is highly debatable. Considered to be more hype than substance, Cyberia is an easy game to criticize. While the cinematic cut scenes are certainly visually stunning, its poor story development and puzzle play surely prevents Cyberia from ever rising to the next level!
