A re-imagining of one of the best 16 bit platformers and a well done one at that.

A great game, a good port. Some of the biggest issues on PS3 were jaggies and load times, both resolved in this release. The only major issue remaining is that the ranking system prioritizes speed too much, vs. completion.

Regardless Valkyria Chronicles is amongst the best SRPGs ever made, has some of the finest art direction of any game ever and belongs in the library of anybody who appreciates great content. Buy it.

Wowza, ok, first off I will let you know that Cave Story is simply put one of the best games of all time. In my top 25 games ever and it was made by just one dude, Daisuke Amaya. I will also let you know there is a freeware version available that is perfectly solid. Don't be afraid to play that version, because it's the original and it is of high quality. Previously I've beaten the freeware OS X version (the first time I beat it), then I beat the Windows version, then I beat the WiiWare version, and now I am on my fourth playthrough with CS+.

CS + includes a variety of extras, new "HD" graphics, new OST, be sure to check between the new & old to see which you prefer.

Buy it sometime.

A+

Best multi-player shooter of all time, now free! Also, the only shooter I have ever played where I still have fun whilst getting my ♥♥♥ kicked in. Though sometimes I feel there are balance issues due to perks awarded to certain unique weapons, if that aspect wasn't there I'd award this game an A+, but because it is, I'm awarding it an A.

A great world, interesting storyline, some fun dungeons, fantastic art direction, and good bosses are held back by poor pacing, over-focus on combat, ridiculous tutorials, and the game spending too much time in uglier areas.

So very imperfect. I played and beat this game and spent much time in its multiplayer, as well as replayed some of the campaign on hard instead of normal difficulty. The game is interesting more so as a museum of dated design concepts than a standalone game. I enjoyed 90% of my time inside of it, and had some fun, but it definitely isn't everybodies cup of tea.

With Duke now in Gearbox's hands, let's look forward to a better game in Duke Begins.

It's not groundbreaking, but the gameplay is very satisfying and it's in my top five third person shooters ever. Do yourself a favor, grab it. 4/5
