    TRI is not typical by any measure and instead charts its own path to puzzle gaming greatness.

    Though TRI lacks the polish and presentation of the more popular Portal titles, its sheer accessibility and serenity mark it out as something genuinely different, and as such deserves to be noticed.

    Regardless of comparisons, TRI: Of Friendship and Madness is a fantastically executed return to the well of first-person spatial tinkering.

    Great trip beyond ordinary human reality attracts gamers with its eccentric and brilliant visuals and amazing logic puzzles. [Issue#247]

    A nice idea and solid implementation of the triangles usage. Highly recommended for the fans of the genre but I can't say the same for the rest of the gamers.

    TRI shows a clever concept but is afraid to explore its depths and lacks a decent narrative.

    I never put down a puzzle game before I complete it, but TRI broke me on level 12th out of 16. I got bored much earlier than that, though. Unfortunately, the game is not only beyond hardcore, it’s simply rude to the player. I doubt that most of you will appreciate this sort of masochistic experience.

On the one hand its a very atmospheric and relaxing game and on the other hand it really keeps me going to get all the puzzles done, find the secrets and, sometimes, make funny TRI-constellations and keep myself wondering what majestic stuff I built.

    So go forward and give this sweet little german indie gem a TRI.

    That game is a truly unique experience, which is only possible on a PC (probably a Wii U, too), because it needs good first person controlsThat game is a truly unique experience, which is only possible on a PC (probably a Wii U, too), because it needs good first person controls and benefits from a precise but fast pointing device like a mouse.
    The game play is innovative. You may be reminded of other games but using triangles to solve puzzles permits you to do it with a lot of freedom. And the puzzles are challenging and diversified, so the game performs as a flagship of its genre.
    Furthermore the beautiful artistic style and soundtrack cover so much individuality that I am able to assign it to the game instantly, when I see or hear a piece of it.
