"Ironically, these ambitious production values likely shortened what otherwise could have been a lengthier game. The Maw is not a very long lived adventure - you could easily finish this game in a day or two, no sweat. That said, it is a very pleasant, fun and compelling experience from top to bottom while it lasts. It's rare that an Xbox LIVE Arcade game comes along that feels as though it were a genuinely original labour of love and not just another well funded remake. But The Maw is one such game that exudes its developer's passion and sure, steady hand with every single polished pixel on display."
