Expert Review

  • Summary: It’s hard to find fault in Cave Story. The graphics are simple but endearing. The music is masterfully composed, and when combined with an engaging story, carries true emotional weight. Combat is fluid and diverse, and the dynamic weapon XP system facilitates an ebb and flow that has you constantly reevaluating your skirmish strategy.

Cave Story Review

  • Conclusion: Nonetheless, Cave Story is a great game. It feels like some sort of gem from a bygone era that, while complete, never saw the light of day (think Star Fox 2). It's debatable whether gamers should fork over the $12 for the WiiWare experience or stick to the free PC download, but if one thing is for sure, it's that everyone should get this game in some form.
