Although the saving is a pain, and the difficulty level is quite high, Cave Story is a fantastic platform adventure game. It's as good as any 2D game, and should be on everyone's list of must-play games.

Alles in allem ist Cave Story ein Game, das ich jedem Fan von Spielen wie Metroid oder Mega Man ans Herz legen möchte. Doch auch Anhänger von typisch asiatischen Action-Adventures sollten Cave Story eine Chance geben. Es lohnt sich definitiv! Neun Punkte.

All in all, Doukutsu Monogatari is just shy of flawless execution. The game takes the best of current gaming sensibilities and applies it to a tried and true format. The game looks great, plays great and sounds great, therefore it IS great. The fact that the game is free is basically moot. I’d drop $25 for this game without batting an eyelash. I’d say it’s not for everyone, but I really only mean it’s not for people that don’t like this genre of game, and well, that’s true of all games. There’s virtually no reason for a gamer to not download this title immediately.

Le look résolument old school ne fera sans doute pas l'unanimité : au niveau des graphismes comme de la bande son, les auteurs de Cave Story ont donné au jeu un côté très "NES" : couleurs limitées et assez ternes, bande son archaïque (mais agréable). Le gameplay, en revanche, est quasi parfait et la durée de vie semble être au rendez vous.

Cave Story est un fantastique petit jeu en 2D à la difficulté assez relevée qui plongera certains dans la nostalgie des hits de leur enfance. Pour en profiter pleinement, n'oubliez pas d'installer le patch de traduction!
