True achievements
13 February 2013
  • Conclusion: New gamers are gonna love this game and for the achievement hunters out there this would be a nice game in your game list for completing games. The game is on a short hand, but still duable to play a couple of times to finish what you started.

  • Conclusion: To conclude, The Cave is not a very good video game. It has an interesting concept and makes strong efforts to combine old genres with new mechanics, but does so in a way which is often unsatisfying – missing a lot of where the original fun was.

The Cave (Xbox 360) Review

  • Summary: There is a lot of heart within The Cave, be it the humorous dialog, good puzzle design, well-designed characters, and interactions the characters have in the environment. The technical issues crop up too often though which drags the game down. Some fundamental game design choices are also a bit odd.

  • Excerpt: I am a great fan of games that don’t take themselves too seriously and The Cave is definitely one of these games.

  • Conclusion: Given the pedigree of Ron Gilbert and Double Fine Productions' past works, a lot of people will be understandably excited by the prospect of The Cave. On paper, it sounds appealing, with its variety of characters and plethora of reasons to replay.

  • Summary: Narration took on a whole new role in game development after Bastion came along. The dulcet tones of the Bastion narrator set a standard for storytelling that has yet to be matched.

The Cave Review

  • Summary: The Cave is a new take on a genre that has been very rigid and set in its ways over the years. Adding a social, co-operative aspect to the game is a brave move, but it is a success as it makes players think differently than they would when controlling just one hero.

The Cave

  • Excerpt: In Double Fine’s whimsical version of the world, there’s a closet full of skeletons miles beneath the Earth’s surface — a place that both grants its entrants’ wishes and reveals the truly rotten things they’re willing to do to get them.
  • Pros: + Some clever, three-character puzzles; silly sense of humor., + Quirky art matches its characters’ delightfully sinister storylines.
  • Cons: ? Why so much wanton destruction of canned corn?

  • Excerpt: As soon as you start up The Cave and hear a deep voice speaking at you, only then to find out that it is the cave itself that is narrating, that is when you begin to realise you are in for a strange and amusing adventure within this bizarre entity.
