Cave Story

 

The greatest NES game never made

Recalls Metroid's design in the best way ; Old-school challenging without being Mega Man hard ; Spot-on controls

Some annoying bits of insta-death frustration ; Have to repeat some tasks ; Can be played for free on PC

Cave Story (WiiWare)

 

Some people love it, and other people loathe it, but almost everyone agrees: Cave Story is an important game. Does that sound dumb to you? Well, it probably should. The word "important" as it ...

Cave Story

 

An online favorite makes its Wii debut.

A trio of predictable but worthwhile modes now supplement the main story: time attack, boss rush, and the ability to play through the story again as another character, Curly (the owner of the aforementioned unmentionables). That puts most of the...

The PC freeware classic makes its console debut, and it's absolutely worth your money.

Only an ill-advised endgame difficulty curve gets in the way of us calling Cave Story a totally flawless videogame. But by the time you get to that point, several glorious hours into the whole thing, you'll have had too good a time to care.

Cave Story- Wii

 

If this game had been released on the NES 20 years ago, it would be recalled by a generation of players as a high point of the 8-bit era. The fact that console gamers are only getting their first crack at Cave Story in 2010 doesn't make the experience...

Cave Story- Wii

 

The game is already available to download for free on your PC, but doing so would be a shame. It looks nicer on Wii, plays much better with a Wii controller from the comfort of your sofa, and those Wii points will go a long way to showing your support...

Old school, new lessons

 

I'd been meaning to play Cave Story for years. When I heard it was coming to WiiWare, I deliberately held off downloading the PC version so that I could approach the high(er)-resolution rerelease without any preconceptions. And even though the wait...
