If not, then why is it worst?

2 games of different genre's, not comparable

But made by the same person, with the same number of characters (if lacking in the makers strenght).
So yes, they are comparable unless they are not made by the same person.
If Manic Mansion isn't an Adventure game, then what is it?

It's actually Maniac Mansion, not Manic Mansion (and isn't "F2P" though there's a fan-made "remake" named Maniac Mansion Deluxe).

And I don't think he was saying Maniac Mansion wasn't an adventure game. Rather that "The Cave" isn't a graphic adventure as Maniac Mansion was. Instead, it's something different that carries plot, but you're not dealing with inventory puzzles, item collection and the traditional "what do I need to use to solve this puzzle" game play.

Hahaha!
Now that is a good one!


Now, most developers normally go with what they are good at unless they want to try something new (which is what most people hope with this game).
And Ron Gillburg (if I spelled his name correctly) strengh seems to be dialoge which a lot of people liked, otherwise he probly would not of been able to make this game.
And the problem with that is that the playerable characters seem to be mute for some reason (I am assuming that their mouth isn't sitched shut or they have no mouth and therefor must screem).

Hum, A though accored to me that he may not of really made the game, but I really don't know, do I.

This gives me a terrable feeling that Double Fine's isn't what their logo make you think they are...
If that IS true, then it would be rather sad... the only thing that would make it sadder is that they where being controlled by EA...

Maniac Mansion, the sequel Day of the Tentacle, and The Cave are all enjoyable but each have their own flavor. I will say The Cave was the easiest and shortest of them, in my humble opinion.

Maniac Mansion was great for its day, although the dead ends you can encounter can make it frustrating. Day of the Tentacle was a classic which stands the test of time to this day.

The Cave makes me realize that Ron Gilbert joins Sid Meier as a game developer who is past his prime (or doesn't have the development budget to make great games). The Cave has none of the humour of Day of the Tentacle. It reminds me of Zak & Wiki on the video game consoles. Not a terrible game, but very average.
