Cave Story is full of charm and personality, and its eccentric world draws you in from the moment you begin playing, with its ever-increasing intensity and action helped by the game's enjoyable gameplay scheme. When you combine all of this with the game's portability and unlockable extras, what you have is one of the most playable and addictive titles to hit DSiWare to date. As good as Cave Story was on Wii, it might even be a little better on the DSi.

As it stands, Cave Story is a fantastic action/adventure title on any platform, and its newfound portability on the DSi is a huge boon. The Cave Story die-hards will no doubt download every edition that becomes available, but if you haven’t played Cave Story before, you’ll want to weigh your options. Are bonus bells and whistles worth more to you than portability? If so, go for the WiiWare version. If you want a charming, challenging adventure on the go, the DSiWare adaptation is your best bet. No matter how you play it, though, this is one story worth hearing.
