The Cave PS3 Review

Console Obsession
9 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Talking people, talking animals and talking cars, although until I played this game, I don’t think I had ever heard of a talking cave before. The Cave certainly has an odd premise for its storyline, although it turns out that the game itself is a lot less inventive when it comes to how it actually plays. The Cave stars a total of 7 playable characters, all of whom remain mute throughout the entire game and are harbouring some dark secrets.

The Cave

Destructoid

  • Summary: Ron Gilbert, being responsible for classic LucasArts titles like Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island, is a legend in adventure game circles. His latest adventure, The Cave , feels a bit like a return to those roots but winds up being something altogether different. Unlike his other games, The Cave is not a singular tale.

The Cave Review

PlayStation Universe
4 February 2013
  • Summary: A graphic adventure game that has triple-A humor but lacks the substance to be an ever-lasting gem. Great for a single run through or to enjoy a laugh with friends, but once the laughs die down so does the game. Only lovers of the genre will keep coming back for thirds and fourths.
  • Pros: Witty and fun humor, Different level designs, Character variety
  • Cons: Game ruining bugs, Easy puzzles, Limited replayability

‘The Cave’ Review

Stick Skills
4 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Throughout this console generation we’ve seen a lot of melding of genres; for example, just about every game has some sort of RPG element now. The point and click adventure game is a genre that hasn’t really been involved in this mass melding. We’ve seen Telltale Games change it up a little with The Walking Dead , but now adventure game master Ron Gilbert and Double Fine have decided to try their hand at it.

  • Conclusion: The Cave Image © Sega Games like "The Cave" are what got me into gaming in the first place. I hate to date myself but I can trace gaming back to text adventures like "Zork" and then vividly remember when those puzzle worlds were animated in tales like "King's Quest" and "The Secret of Monkey Island." When I heard an old-fashioned puzzle adventure game was coming to the PSN, I downloaded it without hesitation.

The Cave Review

GamerNode
27 January 2013
  • Summary: For something different, clever, interesting, and stylish, The Cave is a sure bet. The draw of the old-school adventure remains, minus much of the tedium that might have kept the average gamer away, and although there is room for improvement in its design, the dark narrative arouses curiosity enough to draw players into the experience, even for return visits.
  • Pros: Intriguing narrative, Well-integrated puzzles, Accessible to a wide audience
  • Cons: Being forced to repeat levels, Imprecise controls

The Cave

Digital Chumps

  • Conclusion: The Cave tries to reinvent something that didn’t need reinvention. Whenever it yields a smile or a chuckle with its sadistic sense of light-hearted humor, it slips right back into drudgery by being devoid of meaningful traversal mechanics. The Cave is not a bad game, but it fails to execute on its initial promise by creating an unnecessary tug-of-war between outdated and stale puzzle-platforming and a delightfully twisted sense of humor.

  • Excerpt: has been in development for over twenty years. Well, at least the idea has been bouncing around in veteran designer Ron Gilbert’s head for that long.
