Trine 2

Hooked Gamers
30 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Simply put, Trine 2 is the most beautiful game I’ve ever seen. The music, lush use of colours, animated backgrounds and dream-like enchanted forests and dungeons combine into an atmospheric experience that can never be forgotten.

  • Pros: Wonderful graphics and music, enchanting story and characters, fine and smooth gameplay, low price
  • Cons: Short length, too few close-ups of Zoya

Clever role-playing/puzzle hybrid set in outer space.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that while the fundamental gameplay consists of lining up three colored hexagons in a row, there is considerable depth here. The story unfolds across a huge galaxy with the protagonist going on varied missions and interacting with a broad spectrum of other characters, both good and evil. There are also challenging logic, strategy, and resource management elements at play.

21 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Ask the average "hardcore" gamer what they think of a game like Bejeweled and you'll often get a lengthy tirade on the evils of the bestselling puzzle game and the casual gaming boom it helped spawn. These kinds of mindless, over-simplified gem-matching games represent everything that's wrong with today's game industry, the argument goes.
