Worst part about Cave Story?

if your going for the spur then having your polar star (no matter what level) kinda sucks. it feel like you have 4 slots (2 if you only go for a minimalist run) imo

Not being able to enter Last Cave (hidden) with the mimiga mask, without externally editing save files. (As far as I know, that is the only way to do it).

The Core was probably 100x harder because I held out for the spur.
Worth it.

Really? That's the worst part about Cave Story for you?

The only reason why the core was hard for me was the water, usually most of the time when I fight the core, I drown. And yes, I find the Undead core easier somehow.

Here are the ways I died in the Core fight:
  1. Drowning (Usually JUST before I can reach the surface of the water.)
  2. Those bullshit white ball things that make you lose 20hp.
Also, the reason you find the Undead Core easier is because you have the Spur.
PS. I tried B2 firsthand. And it is not good design.

I mean, You're not wrong about the spur thing.

Here are more that i think are bad
1.Last cave [Hidden] [You have a higher chance to get hit by spikes here than Sacred Grounds/Blood Stained Sanctuary]
2. Sacred Grounds/Blood Stained Sanctuary - B2 [Isn't challenging is suppose to be fun, But B2 is not even fun, Even if i hate the Last cave, it was atleast kinda fun.]
3. Finding Jenka's Dogs [I just find it tedious]

If you wanna beat B2, you should pray to the RNG gods.

Also, you may need to practice Sacred Grounds - B3 multiple times for the case where you get out of B2 but you have low health. And so many of the pickups in B3 are so out of your way, get them if you only intend to get the third ending without speedrunning.

The fact nicalis keeps making these dumb reskins and worse versions of the soundtrack. The fact that pixel probably won't make a sequel is also quite infuriating.

Welp, there should be a CS2 mod that isn't a joke!

I prefer the Freeware, but TBH, the Remastered Soundtrack is really good.

worse versions of the soundtrack.
There's only one bad version and it's the Ridiculon soundtrack. 3DS, Famitracks, even the Wii soundtrack are more memorable and tolerable

I feel like it's a bit unfair to call the Ridiculon soundtrack straight-up bad. I think its worst offense is being an unfitting soundtrack for a lot of situations. Many of the emotional or more simple songs tend to stick with the rock/metal theme, which can be offputting. Besides that, the actual songs are just fine. It hardly ever does anything different from the original soundtrack, which many people love; the only real difference is the instruments. I get why people may not enjoy it, but that's really more a matter of personal preference.

I think it's hard to make a claim that any of the soundtracks are objectively bad. Most are just the original soundtrack with different instrumentation, which is totally harmless. The only exception to this is the Wiiware/New soundtrack. Admittedly, I think you can easily make a claim that the instrumentation in that soundtrack is bad, but I feel that the songs themselves are a unique take on the original melodies, which I love. I'm super appreciative that Nicalis would go out of its way to continue including more and more soundtracks to supplement the ones we already have. Considering there are so many options now and it's entirely your choice as to which one you want to listen to, I think that's a huge positive point.

Worst part? Nicalis owns the distribution rights to it
Why did Pixel have to choose NiCALiS of all companies to have the rights to CS? I wish in an interview he would tell us.
Also, Early CS sucks (First Cave-Beginning of Labyrinth). The only good thing about it is Egg Corridor, due to having
the least amount of backtracking in the early parts of the game.
