Which cave is best? Lascaux 2 or 4

We will be visiting France in May and have the choice of visiting one of the caves. Which would you choose?

Just read this article this morning, trying to make up my mind. Thank you!
I am leaning towards 4 but wonder what others have to say.

"If anything, the video of Lascaux 4 repelled me because of all of its "interactive" special effects."

I visited Lascaux 4 last October. I have not watched the video Kerouac refers to but as far as I can remember all the video special effects are at the end of the tour and in an area separate from the part where the paintings have been recreated. I don't remember any special effects on the guided tour when viewing the paintings.

I've not been to 2 as it was not open last fall so my tour just did 4.

Are you going to any other caves in the area?
