Trine 2 Director’s Cut – A Cut Above The Rest

New Gamer Nation
20 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Though the added control scheme gives the Wii U a noticeable edge, you can’t go wrong with Trine 2 no matter what format you choose. The game’s online co-op is present in full force, but can still prove to be an unnecessary hassle depending on how cooperative your fellow heroes prove to be, while the promised multiplayer additions (including a new “Magic Mayhem” mode and the ability to integrate Miis) are currently unavailable until a future update.

  • Summary: Trine 2 may appear to be the storybook fantasy world of your dreams. In this stunning landscape, you travel through musty old libraries, encounter moss-covered statues at ancient shrines, and marvel at fog-shrouded hillsides that fill your heart with hopes for grand adventure. Every aspect of the visuals, from the most glorious mountaintop vista to the smallest detail, contributes to the creation of a world that appears to have sprung, fully realized, from someone's...

Trine 2: Director’s Cut Review

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: The original Trine was a hit on the PS3 and PC three years ago because it combined absolutely stunning graphics with a whimsical soundtrack, some excellent physics-based puzzles, and a three character-swap mechanic that worked as well then as it did in the Lost Vikings nearly two decades ago. Fast-forward two years and the sequel hits those platforms as well as XBLA, and brings with it online co-op.

Gorgeous sidescroller with some violence, tough platforming.

  • Summary: Parents need to know Trine 2 is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer and action game in which players control three fantasy heroes on a quest to rid a kingdom of evil. There is plenty of fighting using medieval weapons, but the violence never escalates beyond sword swipes, cries of pain, and the occasional gush of green blood.

Review: Trine 2: Directors Cut

N-Europe
25 February 2013
  • Conclusion: A visually well polished title with a lot of interesting twists let down in places by dodgy physics, it's worth battling through for the many moments of joy that you'll experience but just a shame that Trine 2 doesn't always play quite as well as it looks.
  • Pros: Stunning visuals, Atmospheric audio, Enjoyable online co-op
  • Cons: Unpredictable physics, Frustrating at times

  • Summary: Aesthetically speaking, Trine 2: Director’s Cut borders on perfection and deserves nothing less than to be framed and mounted, but the unfortunate news is that this quality does not permeate the game as a whole. Uncomfortable controls and puzzles that don’t actually adhere to sensible solutions, but instead allow you to force your own answer on them, mar the experience and slow the game down in a significant way.
