The Cave Review: Seven spelunkers, none decent | Joystiq

Joystiq: "The Cave turns out to be the cruelest of Double Fine's games, and perhaps the most sharply written. Ron Gilbert and Chris Remo miss on the explicit narration, but their underlying story is perfectly pitched through puzzles and your own wicked participation. The repetition inherent in the game's structure is severe, while also being home to a wonderful, unfurling evilness. Reliving a life over and over may be apt punishment for an adventurer's ill deeds, here in this warm place beneath the earth." (PC, PS3, The Cave, Wii U, Xbox 360) 3.5/5

The score above is wrong, Joystiq awarded it 4.5/5 although the score above is more reflective of how I feel about it.

This review pretty much reflects my own view on the game... It's a decent enough game but you are constantly reminded of little flaws in it - occasionally shonky framerates, weird co-op controls, repetition of sections, no inventory system.

It's ok but gimmie Trine 2 over this any day of the week.

game has lots of moments, but "puzzles" are a too bit easy
