Caveman Warriors is a cutesy-looking title that is devilishly difficult as a single-player experience. Though still fun to play through, the large wave of enemies can sometimes be a little insurmountable, while the boss fights can vary from easy to defeat to unfairly difficult. However, playing it in local multiplayer seems to be the way to go, as it is more fun to work together in a team and knock away the enemies. It retains the difficulty, though, as dying is for good - until a checkpoint is reached by the surviving members. Unfortunately, the game suffers due to the animation glitches and that dreadful boss glitch that centres on the Cavernator's second encounter. Despite this, Caveman Warriors is still a game that is worth checking out.
It's really not a good sign that I've been spending much of this review comparing Caveman Warriors unfavourably to games made over twenty years ago.
Caveman Warriors is fun game to play in couch co-op, but I wish the controls get fixed since they do need to be better.
Caveman Warriors isn't so much a bad game then; it's just one that's a bit bland and exceedingly niche.
Caveman Warriors is a colorful, fun and charming 2D action game with a nice amount of content and plenty of replay value for you to play either on your own or with friend and family members, so be sure to download this one on PS4 today!
If you relish the days when death by bad jumping mechanics was commonplace in gaming and enemy hits were cheap, you might like the nostalgia Caveman Warriors brings. But, if you're looking for a refined experience, this is probably not the co-op experience you're looking for.
Caveman Warriors looks like a standard Flash game and plays like a subpar SNES game.
That’s why Caveman Warriors is best played with others, muffled laughter carrying you through the experience as you rally around to topple Undine, Lodrack, Cavernator v2.0, and the game’s many other bosses. There are still moments that can entertain like riding atop a triceratops as you helplessly shoot enemies that are chasing you and when you are transported into the future, but the game largely feels underbaked and leans too heavily on its inspirations rather than looking to make its own mark on the Nintendo eShop. For that reason, it’s a little too prehistoric for its own good and perhaps belongs in a museum.
If you’re a fan of this classic sort of gameplay, but with a few great modern twists, I would have no reservations in recommending it. It truly feels like a classic genre game brought forward to today. However, if there are some old habits from the genre you could do without or you’re not familiar with the agony often associated with the notorious knockback your patience may wear thin as it is a huge part of the game experience unfortunately. If you can get past that Caveman Warriors is a colorful and generally well-executed side-scrolling romp though.
Caveman Warriors has too many problems to make it fun. If you're playing in 4 player co-op it might be entertaining, but in Single Player mode it's far too dull to be enjoyable. Maybe it should've stayed in the Stone Age?
