    A welcome glimpse of Gilbert's past

    Rated on January 28, 2013 by Blindmeis

    Playing this game, I faintly but most fondly remembered some of the classics Ron Gilbert, creator of "The Cave", is rightfully famous for: The humor is witty and maintains a certain dubious generosity...

    It seems the story changes as the characters.

    Rated on January 25, 2013 by Irondiesel58

    It's pretty simple game where each character has abilities that the others cannot do so you'll need to work three characters on each quest and there are nine in all so it should mean with each change ...

    Best adventure I ever played (and i started in 1983)

    Rated on January 25, 2013 by pietror_se

    This is simply such a masterpiece, all details play together - the graphics is like "wow", the mood changes appropriately, the narration with just right kind of humor, there are surprising turns of ev...

    If you're a fan of old school adventures like Monkey island, you'll love it. If not, you'll love it anyway.

    Pros: Very fun and great to play with friends. The puzzles make you think, and you wont always figure it out straight away, but they aren't mind numbingly frustrating either.The characters are all ver...

    Beautiful looking game that varies from fun to boring and lacks any character.

    Rated on February 10, 2013 by shanethewolf

    Monkey Island (followed closely by its sequels and Day of the Tentacle) is my undisputed favourite game of all time, so on hearing of Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert's involvement in The Cave, I was alrea...

    You won't find what you desire most, but if you push through the boring beginning, you'll find more than mere treasure.

    We all have a dark place in our hearts; that is if you believe the talking cave that serves as the setting, narrator and sort of antagonist in Double Fine's The Cave. Yes, there's a talking cave (and ...

    Expected so much more!

    Rated on April 13, 2013 by Fat_Boy_PT

    "The Cave"! It could have been a contender! Developed by Ron Gilbert and Tim Shafer, two of the three creators of probably the best adventure series of all time, "Monkey Island", this game promised so...

    The Cave is an amusing title that on the first time through is entertaining enough to warrant attention.

    Rated on June 16, 2013 by Domstercool

    As soon as you start up The Cave and hear a deep voice speaking at you, only then to find out that it is the cave itself that is narrating, that is when you begin to realise you are in for a strange a...
