This game sort of sucks.
I feel bad for paying $15. Well, there goes my faith in Double Fine.

This post sort of sucks.
I feel bad for reading it, and responding. Well, there goes 2 minutes of my life.

It took you two minutes to read my post and type that response?
I can honestly say that I don't feel bad anymore. Thanks! :D

Well, I can sorta agree with you; 2 run throughs so far with 6 different characters total. I played with my sister and girlfriend.

The camera issues are a bit weird, and there aren't enough puzzles. Other than those things, I think the game has some really great parts.

I think there was a lot of potential for the game. But, it feels like they rushed it.

The $15 price tag seems a little ridiculous for what was provided.

i spent $15 and every penny was worth it.

Love the game. $15 well spent. As opposed to the $54 sack of ♥♥♥♥ Hitman Absolution was. Thanks for ruining Hitman, IO-- er, I mean, the Kane & Lynch team!

Well, at least other people enjoyed this game.

Though, coming from personal experience, there are much better games available for a cheaper price. This game comes with few gameplay hours, annoying replay value (forced replays for achievements with overly simplified puzzles), and semi-pointless unique aspects for characters (special abilities that play a small role in gameplay).

Maybe saying that my faith with Double Fine leaving was too much. However, I don't feel like I got my money's worth and doubt I'd be compelled to 'roll the dice' on any of their games to come.

got it from amazon with $5 amazon credit. I consider it as $10. $15 is a little bit over priced, but $10 for me is fine. I have not played it yet coz I bought this game for my gf who loves puzzle games. So I don't have anything to say about this game.

It might be different for other people, but once I was able to solve the first puzzle, I could easily solve them all.

No irony, I'd really like to know what better games you're referring to. I was considering to buy it, since I love that "Metroidvania" kind of game an didn't want to finish Castlevania: SotN for the 7th time. But the reviews and general opinions Kind of drew me back.

There's no combat at all. If that's what you're looking for, definitely steer clear.

I'm having a hard time comparing Metroid and Castlevania to The Cave. Of course, they are both platformers. However, in my eyes, that's where the connection ends.

Metroid and Castlevania have much more of an 'action' feel. You might enjoy CaveStory if you're looking for something similar.

The Cave seems more like a point-and-click adventure game based on platform gameplay. This is just my opinion, but it seriously shouldn't receive credit for being a puzzle game. Maybe if the target audience were solely children, I could better understand. I found that only a few characters and stylish artwork make up the majority of what's being paid for. Everything else is filler, including the gameplay.

When I mentioned better and cheaper games, I was referring to ones that I would enjoy. Other people wouldn't necessarily like the games I do, so I neglected to add examples. That would only lead to people attacking my personal interests, rather than focusing on the concept that I'm trying to portray. That is, there -are- better games available for your money, and they're right here on Steam.
