As Beautiful As Ever | Trine 2: Complete Story Review

Excerpt: There are two main types of platformers: there are your fast-paced, crazy, in-your-face, just try to keep up games, and then there are your slow puzzle type games. Trine has always been the latter, focusing on intellectual challenges over reflexes.
Excerpt: Back for my third review on my third format, welcome to Trine 2: Complete Story. Frozenbyte is bound and determined that everyone has a chance to play their stunning platform-puzzler, so it’s no big surprise that this is debuting as a launch title for Sony’s new PlayStation 4.
Summary: Trine 2: Complete Story is still a brilliantly charming game, and the PS4 version is the definitive iteration by some distance, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that Frozenbyte need to move on now and work on number 3 – or something new altogether.
Excerpt: The Trine is a magical artifact that bound the souls of the wizard Amadeus, the knight Pontius, and the thief Zoya, together in their last adventure together. A few years after the event of Trine, Amadeus is woken up by a bright light.
Pros: Breathtaking graphics; beautiful music; wonderful voice acting; silky smooth animation; creative and challenging puzzles; great level design; lovable characters that are each fun to play; multiplayer co-op; excellent use of the PS4 controller
Cons: The wizard is hard to play when using the Vita via remote play
Excerpt: The original Trine charmed over a million players with its fulfilling mix of role-playing elements, challenging puzzles, and breathtaking visuals despite an uninspired story and a short running time. Does this gorgeous new outing conjure up any innovations?
Excerpt: Trine 2 era uno de esos títulos de los que veía imágenes y vídeos, babeaba y después, desgraciadamente, olvidaba . Tuvo que llegar – cómo no – la Summer Sale de Steam y encontrármelo cara a cara a un precio irrechazable para que, finalmente, acabara haciéndome con él.
