Cave Story 3D is Cave Story unencumbered. It's Pixel's dream realized on a new platform for the masses, and in a form anyone can appreciate. While the new graphical style might lack the charm of the original's it's in no way bad – just different and, in a way, more appropriate.

Cave Story is a brilliant, touching game that is truly special, and that all gamers should make it a point to play. But cheaper, arguably more perfect versions of it are easily available for download. In fact, through the eShop you can have this very same game in its DSiWare form on your 3DS for literally a fraction of the cost.

The original Cave Story is a great game, and what is being offered here is the same at the core. It looks a bit bland, but it’s still fun to play, the music is still great, and the story is still interesting. It’s not my favorite version of Cave Story (that would be the WiiWare version), but it’s still worth playing, especially considering the lack of compelling single-player games on the 3DS outside of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
