    The Cave is not the best work from Ron Gilbert, but marks its return to form. More than a point'n click, this is a platform game with puzzles that while not sophisticated, reveals highly ingenious structures and problems in which you’ll lose your mental clarity and sharpness.

    Ron Gilbert and the team over at Double Fine delivered a clever puzzle platformer that will get you hooked in a unique and humorous world.

    Ultimately, it will be easier for fans of Ron Gilbert's previous works to look past the niggling flaws and appreciate the game, but anyone should be able to enjoy writing and puzzles of this caliber. Lose yourself in the atmosphere, discover the sordid stories of each character, and the game's problems just fade away.

    This game is the first game in a LONG time that the moment I finished it I wanted to instantly play through it again. See you can only pick 3This game is the first game in a LONG time that the moment I finished it I wanted to instantly play through it again. See you can only pick 3 out of the 7 characters each time and each has different puzzles throughout. This game is brilliant, the puzzles are tough but dont require digging around online for solutions (if you think about it you can figure it out) and the humor is top-notch. A must pick up for puzzle/platformer fans. Full Review »

Players can also explore the game with up to two friends in co-op mode. The cave itself speaks and does chuckle you. This sometimes can be tricky but being a challenging game I love to figure things out. It might need a patch update as I hate the way they jump but overall an amazing experience. Full Review »
