If you want shooting or adventure, stick to basics like Doom or Gex. In a tundra of genre-specific games, however, Cyberia comes in like a heat wave for the renaissance gamer who wants a little bit of everything.
Someday, there will be a graphic adventure that lets you build and determine the storyline itself. Although Cyberia succeeds at creating what may well be the look and feel of that game, until the non-linear gameplay arrives, it is kinda lacking.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
The interface is quite easy, using only a couple of buttons and not allowing you to stray too far from the direction you should be going: Cyberia pulls you along through the story, but you don't mind, because the ride is so enjoyable. If you're into games like D's Diner and Burn:Cycle, Cyberia will be a treat you won't want to miss.
Cyberia might have been a big PC hit, but compared to other console games, it's a little boring. To it's credit, Cyberia has terrific music, a long quest, cool motion captured SGI graphics and a good storyline. On the other hand, this game also has lame "action" shooting sequences, limited real-time interaction and uh...did I mention that it's boring? If you like the PC title of if you enjoy these types of games, knock yourself out. If you're a hardcore console gamer, you might want to look elsewhere.
There's no denying the appeal of great, prerendered graphics, but gameplay does tend to suffer in graphic adventures, which usually consists of doing things over and over until you do it right. But as it stands, Cyberia is a very enjoyable game.
