So i've received a review code yesterday for Double Fine's The Cave. I work for a gamesite and SEGA sent us a code. I knew this was gonna be a special game when they released that debut trailer, but i didn't know it would be this special. It's awesome.
You get to choose between seven unique characters with their own story. You choose three of them and then you go platforming and puzzling. You got a Monk, Twins, Time Traveller, Knight, Adventurer, Scientist and the Hillbilly. Say you choose a Hillbilly, Twins and Knight..you will get different locations, puzzles and storylines compared to when you select the other three. This gives awesome replay value and i was quite surprised about it.
The puzzles are fun as hell but can be quite tricky at times. But when i finally completed a set of tricky puzzles, boy did that feel rewarding. It's been a long long time since i enjoyed a platformer so much. The Cave's sense of humour is awesome and with that i mean the voice, the talking cave, lol. It also feels like quite the long game cause yesterday i played as three different characters and i got stuck, so stuck that i decided to check out the other characters and choose 'new game' but that unfortunetely overwrites your savegame, but so far i guess that's the only slight downer on a brilliant game. But at that time i already had spent a few hours with it and now i'm also a few hours into the game with the other characters. I'd say it's VERY worth of your 1200MS points. It also supports co-op 2-3 players.
