Summary

Cave Story--a DOUBLE WAMMY that made it OUT OF THE BALLPARK!!!

The Good

I just LOOOVED it! It was AWESOME!!! IT was FAN-TASTIC!!!! The graphics were great, the music was great (to put it VERY mildly), the storyline was awesome (and on these kind of games, there usually ISN'T one!), and well...EVERYTHING was just sooo awesome.

(Believe me, freeware publishes some pretty lame games sometimes.)

The characters have a way of keeping you in the game--their personalities are unique and quite diverse.

The weapons vary as well--there are at least five or seven different weapons in the game. And by the way, they are VERY cool!

..But don't take my word for it--download it and play it for yourself. After all--it IS freeware.

The Bad

U-u-uhhhh...WHA--?? What kind of a crack is that? I LOVED the game! The bosses got a bit tough (especially the dude they call "The Core"--not to be confused with the movie by the way.

The music might get old after a while--but there are ALWAYS new tunes that pop up every now and then!

The Bottom Line

Well...hmm.

(Read the review done by J.P Grey on Out of This World.)

Take the game Out of This World and change the background a bit--and for you SEGA CD owners, if you make the music less intense, and change the background a bit as well, walaa!

...You almost have Cave Story.
