The Cave Review | GameCloud

The Cave is a genuinely charming adventure that is hindered by some compelling design choices that meant well, but ultimately needed to be thought out a little further. The characters and environments are all expertly crafted, and the designers attempt to introduce new mechanics do well to set the experience apart as unique. However, without the ability to regroup, backtracking becomes essential, and if you want to experience all of the individual scenarios, be prepared to replay the game and repeat some of the levels. The experience is certainly worth your time as players will leave The Cave having been entertained, but it also might leave you questioning $20 entry fee. (PC, PS3, The Cave, Wii U, Xbox 360) 7/10

I really love the quirky humour, but it's not my favourite from these guys...

A decent game, but flawed. Backtracking and odd co-op controls get in the way. Framerate and stuttering problems for no logical reason (such as when there's next to nothing going off on screen yet "busy" sections are silky smooth!?).

Basically, check out Trine 2, which is a far more polished pluzzle/platformer and if you've completed that then maybe give The Cave a whirl.

It is with much regret that Trine 2 sits unplayed in my pile of shame, so I will be sure to check it out once I finish FTL.Thank you for the recommendation Nevers0ft!
