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.) The game comes with an optional classic mode that replaces the 3D Graphics with pixelated graphics from the PC version! The only downside is the price! At the moment it is $99, so go to a local gaming store and get it used. I got mine for $22!
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 and that's a great thing. The thing that I felt really set this game apart was it's nice story and it's quirky dialogue/characters.
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: The game plays like a retro action game with the great graphics of the present. The 3DS is harnessed fully to make this game awesome. I am amazed by another feature. The game files can be played with retro graphics from the Nintendo eshop version and then played from the cartridge is what looks like HD. Pricey but really well made.
Summary: good little game, fun to play. little strategy 2d platform game. never played original, but do really enjoy this one. have had to use guides at one point or two. got a little tricky. 3d graphics are pretty good. as good as u can get for a 3d 2d platform game.
