Excerpt: Trine was one of those games that caught our eye. This game is beautiful graphically. So when I first heard about Trine 2, I watched it closely. Trine had some issues, and we made our millions of readers aware of them in the review. The look of Trine 2 is also very beautiful. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a code for the Xbox 360 version of this home console game. It is also on the PS3 and PC.
Conclusion: Dazzling in design and addictive in the gameplay department, Trine 2 is a spectacular fantasy romp that shouldn’t be missed by anyone with a penchant for high-quality platforming with a puzzling twist. It’ll get you swinging, slicing, jumping and thinking as you venture towards the next gorgeous land ripe for exploration.
Excerpt: Fantastical physics-based puzzle game anyone? How about some sidescrolling action? Or, maybe you'd like to add in some co-op puzzle solving. Well, Trine 2 has it. This sequel to Trine offers some thumb-grabbing gameplay accompanied by plenty of eye candy. Trine 2 starts off with the three characters from Trine rejoining together in a quest to save the princess. There's no deep storyline here. A wizard is disturbed by a light and follows it through the forest.
Summary: " Trine 2 " is a wonderfully inventive game that builds incredibly well on the original, making more use of hidden paths and the play mechanics each of the character’s abilities combine to create. While the multiplayer can be hit and miss, the blend of physics-puzzles and action proves uniquely fun when played alone or with (cooperative) friends.
Conclusion: Achievements here can be obtain by performing some specific actions in the envirsonment, like climbing on a homemade stack of eight items, or like firing a end of three arrows in the air with Zoya and catch all of them with Pontius's shield. Mind your head !!! Really a pleasant and interesting adventure that will remind you Braid or Limbo but, to my opinion, more beautiful.
Excerpt: The Good : Clever physics-based platformer. Amazing graphics. The Bad : You really need friends to play multiplayer. The Ugly : Nuthin’ In all honesty this could really just be a copy of my review of Trine; you wouldn’t know any difference, just as I really didn’t notice much about Trine 2 different from Trine 1 (with the exception of a multiplayer mode, which I’ll get to later). Very little of the underlying game mechanics have changed. That’s not a bad thing.
Excerpt: “Something mysterious and magical was taking place in the forest,” the narrator mutters at the start of Trine 2 . That’s a vague observation, but an apt one. Something magical is happening, though Trine 2’s pliable physics-based challenges and enchantments owe more to Sir Isaac Newton than to Albus Dumbledore. As with the first Trine , players switch off between three characters to solve a series of environmental puzzles.
Summary: With the wholesome appeal of a fairy tale, Trine 2 is unapologetically packed with comfortable tropes. Like the first game , it stars a trio of classic fantasy heroes: a merry knight, a sly thief, and a nervy wizard. Their adventure bustles them through ye olde tale of rescue the princess--via enchanted forest and murky cavern, wherein they thrash goblins and giant spiders.
Pros: Gorgeous visuals, Fun, open-ended physics puzzles, Smooth, accessible platforming, Fun co-op, online and off
