Summary: A spectacular take on the Metroidvania genre. The aesthetic suffers a bit in this version, as there isn't as much contrast between the background and foreground, which hurts the platforming. There's also some enemy and character models that look terrible compared to their Cave Story+ counterparts.
Summary: I never had played cave story before this game, and I can say that this game is amazing! The 3D graphics are great, and the story has a great plot(other than the death of 2 of my favorite characters, and an optional death of one.
Another excellent plunge into the Metroidvania genre with a cool sci-fi-like theme.

Summary: I am really enjoying this game because I love the exploration aspect of Metroidvania games, along with the uniqueness of setting the game up as a 2D sidescroller. The thing I loved the most was the fact that it really does feel like one of the newer Castlevania games on ds or the older Metroid games...
Summary: I always loved Cave Story and this new addition makes it seem even more life-like. also i like the classic mode if you are felling more like playing a classic game of cave story. also the multiple endings are my favorite part of it. overall i think this is a great Classic great for all ages.
2D sidescroller and compelling story make this a buy!

Summary: Game is awesome. Hard to justify the high price point, but if you can find this for $30 or under it is a solid buy. Classic game, the 3D is kind of whatever for me, but the gameplay is solid gold and this one will be a collectors item when enough time passes.
Summary: I honesly don't know too much abut video games but my son wanted this game and I purchased it for a Christmas gift. I received it in plenty of time for the holiday and my son was pleased with it.
