While I haven't seen it personally, from looking at screens and videos I've quite liked the way it looks. What do you think looks bad about it?

Well I really hate bloom lighting, I think pre-2005ish era graphics are a lot nicer to look at than lots of stuff from this gen.
Has there been anything made where glow-like bloom actually looks good? Even in otherwise visually excellent games like Shadow of the Colossus it comes off as wholly unnecessary.

I seriously need to try and get my hands on a CS3D copy... It's been on my "to get game list" for like, 2 years and I still have not gotten it. (I heard from someone that it was discontinued, but I hope not) I like how CS looks, but I'm probably biased. About the concept art though... I honestly hate the North America Cave Story concept art, but love the Japan Cave Story 3DS concept art. I did see how Mimiga village looked and it looked pretty nice, it's just some of the models I'm iffy with.
Good Luck, even on ebay there pretty tough to come by.

I also despise the graphics of Wind Waker HD. I don't own it but I personally hate the bloom and lack of color compared to the original

Wind Waker HD is pretty jarring. It's like trying to perfect an art style that was meant to be timeless and never improved.

Bloom lighting is meh. I don't specifically hate it but I hate when it's used lazily along with other filters like fog and whatnot. Shadow of the Colossus is the one example I have where I actually approve of the effect because it enhances atmosphere and all the textures and light sources were carefully designed to go along with it. It wasn't some lazy level designer trying to turn something shiny over to his boss.

Speaking of bloom, I found this and found it kinda funny.

I don't really mind bloom as much as you all seem to. I think it's alright as long as it isn't too over the top ( '-')

Spacewar! has some pretty horrible graphics in my opinion. But then again I am biased against shooters.

I don't like the graphics of Cave Story+. Especially compared to the original.

Why don't you like them? The updated graphics retain the charm of the original, while adding a very nice level of detail that still gives me a comforting feeling to this day. I don't see a clear reason why you wouldn't like them unless, I dunno, you're a purist maybe.

Somehow, the remade graphics and their detail made it lose that original homely cuteness Cave Story had.

I don't like them either, they're improved over the Wii version but I find that the way they put them together just looks wrong. Like they're way too clean.

Personally I like the graphics from CS+. I though it was new but stayed true to the original. Also Remastered Soundtrack is another positive in my eyes. :sue:

@CS+
Well, I do like the CS+ graphics now. But, thinking back on it...
I was originally ... discouraged at the turn some of the art took.

http://www.cavestory.org/forums/posts/46136

But I got used it quickly and didn't remember that until having to reflect...

While I like they did with CS+'s graphically, I HATE CS3D'S "improved" graphics. Cave Story always remain a 2D side scroll platform not whatever CS3D was...

I honestly think Cave Story 3D would've been better if it were to have been on a home console rather than on a handheld. Inb4 Nicalis taking the idea making another Cave Story port.

I've seen screenshots and trailers of CaveStory3DS, and I think it isn't really that bad.

I do agree the original was best.
