The Cave Review - Midlife Gamer

Derek "digi" McRoberts says:"‘The Cave’ is the latest brainchild from adventure game guru Ron Gilbert, the mind behind the superlative Maniac Mansion, the Secret of Monkey Island and most recently the Deathspank series of games, and sees Ron team up again with Tim Schafer, his former Lucasarts Colleague, over at Double Fine Productions.

The Cave sets you with the challenge of navigating the titular subturranea with a selection of eclectic and unique characters. From the outset, you are introduced to your new surroundings through the narrator who has 95% of the spoken lines in this title, and is also the sentient presence of The Cave itself. None of the playable characters utter a word, excluding the grunts or groans as they exert themselves or expire, but this in itself is not a detraction and many video game characters have succeeded as silent protagonists." (PC, PS3, The Cave, Wii U, Xbox 360) 8/10
