Default Syberia?

This adventure game has been out for a few months. I've read some good reviews on it, but surprisingly there are no mentions of the game on this forum. I'm just d/ling the demo now. Has anyone played this game? Your opinions?

I dunno, I don't much like adventure games I guess.
Gabriel Knight 1+2 and the first Broken Sword were cool, the later sequels.....nah

After playing the demo, I don't really like the game. The graphics looked good as small screenshots, but in the game, quality is very lacking. Gameplay is also too linear for me.

I confused Syberia for Cyberia at first too!

ROTFLMAO @ Matty

The game did intrest me at first especially since I like those type of adventure games to some extent. What I mean is that all they are is just onscreen books where you click things. If they cost cheap and have intresting character backgrounds I would be intrested but this game I don't really like even though the girl looks sexy.

Agreed, the girl is sexy in a non-****ty way. She's genuinely attractive.

With a high-poly model and some imagination...

This kind of sexiness is refreshing in games

Got this game for my wife as she is the adventure freeak in the house, except for one, Grim Fandango After finishing the game she this is what she said about it. To easy, to quick but with a good story. Her favorite adventure games thus far are, Gabriel Knight 1, 2 and 3.
