Is it worth it?
I'm thinking about picking this game up. Is it worth the money?

It is indeed worth the money. The thought process involved in solving some puzzles can be tricky sometimes...but it's more likely that you are overthinking the solution. It's a very nice platformer indeed.

This game is worth $9.98. Unless you really like the genera, in which case it may be worth upto $17.47.

meh, I think I'll just get it next time it goes on some type of sale.

I just got it on sale, and I'm really not impressed. The controls are♥♥♥♥♥♥ what passes for voice acting is grating, and the biggest puzzle lies in deciding which character's power they want you to use at any given point. It's honestly really boring.

It would be a great game if only the controls would work a lot better.

If you're like me and were incredibly excited about the idea of Tim Schafer's DoubleFine and Ron Gilbert co-operating to create an adventure game ... well, you will be disappointed.

It's not the fantastic game this should have been, it's not even a particularly good game.

The humor and the visuals are great as one would expect from DoubleFine. But the platforming is rather dull and the puzzles aren't good enough to justify the huge amounts of time you'll spend constantly backtracking.

I am able to enjoy "The Cave" for what it is, there is some good content there ... but it's covered under piles and piles of mediocrity.

While many other DoubleFine games (and Tim Schafer and/or Ron Gilbert games, for that matter) managed to glue me to the screen for hours and hours ... The Cave does not. I keep picking it up and solve a couple of puzzles, but I almost always end up quitting the game out of boredom and frustration over the dull platforming and one too many trial and error puzzles ... and I generally love adventure, puzzle and platforming games.

Does that mean the game isn't worth buying or playing ... I don't know, I don't think so. I didn't really regret paying for it, I mostly regret not being able to properly enjoy it.
