Cave Story (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
25 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Cave Story is a game which celebrates the much-revered era of retro gaming without landing in any of the usual pitfalls of similar games. It doesn't attempt to mimic any particular game, nor does it confront players with antiquated gaming conventions for the sake of being old-school. Instead, what we see here is a truce between the simplicity and style of the old and the game design smarts of the new.

Cave Story Review

  • Summary: After more than five years, Cave Story is finally making its console debut with upgraded graphics and music. It's still a fine side-scroller, but a few graphical issues bring the experience down a notch.
  • Pros: Well-designed stages get increasingly hectic as the game goes on, Whimsical art and music help it stand apart from similar titles, Wide variety of weapons help expand the experience
  • Cons: A fair number of bugs, including one that freezes the Wii completely, Bad audio mixing hobbles the new soundtrack, Deliberately tiny sprites can occasionally get lost in all the mayhem

Cave Story

AV Club
29 March 2010
  • Excerpt: It isn’t often that consumers wait with bated breath for the privilege of paying for something that’s been available free for six years, but that’s Cave Story ’s migration from PC freeware cult hit to WiiWare exclusive in a nutshell. While the payday has finally come for creator Daisuke Amaya—who spent five years developing the whimsical action-platformer as a labor of love—many will likely scoff at shelling out $12 for a gussied-up port with a handful of new modes and...

Test : Cave Story 3D

Gamekult.com
11 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Le mode classique avec ses personnages en pixels légèrement étirés sur des décors 3D tout en profondeur amuse sur le coup, mais quitte à se payer un remake 3D, autant opter pour le mode où tous les éléments ont du volume, même si les déplacements restent sur un seul plan. On pouvait légitimement craindre le pire vu le souci du détail du jeu original, mais le passage en trois dimensions rend bien justice aux décors et aux personnages créés par Daisuke "Pixel" Ayama,...
  • Pros: Un grand jeu dans une petite cartouche, Des musiques bien remixées, Un passage en 3D assez réussi...
  • Cons: ... mais pas toujours très lisible, Manque de nouveau contenu, Le prix

  • Excerpt: Cave Story est un exemple de jeu indépendant qui s'est fait une réputation tout seul comme un grand. Sorti gratuitement en 2004 sur PC, ce jeu de plates-formes aux multiples inspirations est rapidement devenu une référence du freeware. Aujourd'hui, Pixel, studio à l'origine de ce petit bijou, s'est vu commander une version WiiWare pour que le grand public goûte à la magie du monde des Mimigas...
