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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

Ingenious Puzzles, Tedious Runaround

Game Informer

  • Conclusion: Concept: Explore a mystical cave with a motley crew of adventurers, solving puzzles as you go Graphics: Beautiful animation helps distinguish each character Sound: A subdued musical score supports the amusing narration Playability: Simple platforming controls allow easy navigation, but sometimes button presses don’t do what you want them to Entertainment: Patient explorers will enjoy the smart puzzle design, but pacing is slow Replay: High

The Cave review

GamesRadar

  • Conclusion: "...you’ll need to go through it a few times to see all of the locations and to discover the whole story." "...all of the other characters' levels are just as impressive." "The platforming controls feel imprecise and, at times, a bit clunky...
  • Pros: Challenging and rewarding puzzles, Uncovering each character's personal story, The dark humor
  • Cons: The occasional frame-rate dip, Taking multiple treks to position your characters, Clunky platforming controls
