RPG's like Mass Effect, Skyrim, Dragon Age, etc., are typically my games of choice, but The Cave sounded intriguing. The cheap price and pre-order discount didn't hurt.

Players choose three of the seven available characters, each with unique talents. I'm currently playing with a knight who has the power of invincibility; an adventurer who can swing a grappling hook; and twins who have the ability to duplicate themselves. When you access special areas of the cave, you uncover scenes from your characters' pasts. Also, each character has a special quest that occurs in a unique area of the cave. (The knight is tasked by a king to defeat a dragon and retrieve an amulet for his daughter.)

You switch control between the three characters as you advance through the cave. Often, teamwork is required as you must position the characters in certain areas or have them perform tasks simultaneously. There are monsters, but there is no combat. Instead, you must figure out how to get past monsters with strategy alone. For one early example, you "battle" a dragon with a hot dog and a claw like those found in an arcade game.

Controls are simple, consisting of moving side to side, jumping, climbing, and picking up and using various objects. Characters can only hold one object at a time, and certain objects are needed to advance through different areas of the cave. Because it's not always obvious which objects must be used, you will often find yourself doubling back to retrieve dropped objects. This is a new type of game for me, so I've found myself running around aimlessly quite a bit, experimenting with different combinations of characters and objects to try to advance.

So far, I've experienced no glitches.

I love the old Lucas Arts adventure games, like Monkey Island, and I was looking for something similar. The Cave is not like the old adventure games, in that the player does not pick objects and decide how to interact with them (ex: open, talk to, pick up, give, etc.) However, the game is imaginative and contains entertaining puzzles. Also, each character has their own dark history that slowly unfolds as you play. Because parts of the game only accessible by certain characters and only three can be played at a time, there is potential for many hours of gameplay.

The game is not without bugs. I was on the second to last level of the game when I began having trouble moving an object. My character kept walking forward and dropping the object when I just wanted it to grab the object and walk backwards. I learned how to get out of that trap, but then one of my characters fell through the floor and vanished. I cannot retrieve him and I must have three characters to leave the level. The game auto-saves and there is not an easy way to go to earlier saves (you have play programmer to do that). So, in my case I have to start over from level one, which is highly disappointing.

So, buy this game at your own risk. It IS fun and it seems that other people have made it to the end without any trouble. At the same time it is a newly released game and it might be better to buy it after it has been "out there" a while so the bugs can be worked out.

If you're a long time gamer, you must have played (and therefore loved) The Secret of Monkey Island and its first sequel, Lechuck's Revenge. Those games are both classic and belonging to a genre that sadly barely exists anymore (only Telltalle Games has kept the genre afloat, and while some indie developers also do it, their games usually lack the humor of the best classics). Those games, and others in the same genre, were the product of the great minds of Ron Gilbert and Tim Schafer.

Decades later, both of them reunited to work together in a new project: The Cave. The Cave has NOT the same style of gameplay as the Monkey Island games, but it sure as hell has the same heart. It looks and plays like a platformer, but it's actually a classic graphic adventure in a clever disguise.

You see, even though you control characters by moving with the analog stick, jumping and using special abilities, this is no Mario, Megaman or Rayman. You don't jump on enemies or attack them with an equipped weapon (mostly). No, the focus of this game is on puzzles and humor, just like in the previous collaborations by Gilbert and Schafer.

Along the game, you're instructed, related, haunted and made fun of by the titular Cave, a sentient geographical accident who talks to you as you plow your way through it with three characters of your choice from a group of seven, each of whom has a slowly-revealed personal history and a particular useful special skill.

Interaction between these characters and each other, NPCs, creatures or objects found in The Cave is filled with the same kind of progression you might have felt while playing old graphical adventures (i.e.

This is an adventure gamer's dream! While very reminiscent of older games like Maniac Mansion and Day of The Tentacle, the Cave brings in newer technology to make this very fresh and exciting. The Voice of the Cave is magnificent and he brings in dashes of dark humor, as is traditional from the creator of this game. Beautiful graphics, clever puzzles (but nothing too hard), and replay factor make this a winning combination. There are things that I wish they would have done - like adding more variety to the "required" stories and possibly having a patch where new characters (that are hinted at in the game) like the clown, robot, and pirate could be added. But, overall this is extremely enjoyable romp through the CAVE. I wish they would make a sequel! This type of game is too rare, and we need more like this one!
