    Goblins, orcs, wizards, knights, princesses, queens, sexy thieves, dragons and enchanted castles. Need we say more? Yes, it's a must have.

    A great expansion pack worthy of the original game. Surprisingly, the game offers many new properly-dosed ideas, but at the same time it forces to implement new narrative techniques with the useless effort to hold the established boss concept. The actual gameplay (apart the boss thingy) is the pure author's pleasure.

    This is an honest DLC – 4-5 hours of joy for 10 bucks guaranteed!

    So, while I continue to like the Trine series and the unique game mechanics, and especially the artwork, this entry seems brief, a little rushed, and generally not up to the standard set by the previous games.

    A nice expansion featuring gorgeous new locations.

    First let me say I liked Trine 2 so much I wouldn't have changed anything in there. With this expansion Trine 2 gets more enemies, more wonderful locations and more mechanics but all this is not supported enough by the plot IMHO.
    In Trine 2 levels were small and there was some sort of "progression" from level to level, in Goblin Menace it's the exact opposite: long levels totally unrelated each other (like going from the desert to an icy mountain) and even if the story "explains" why it's like that, you feel like the plot was designed after the levels and not the opposite (as it should be).

    So, to recap, this expansion brings some good new mechanics and for Trine fans I can only recommend it; just don't expect "Trine 2 reloaded" because the expansion diverges a lot from the original game.

    Goblin Menace has the same strength (beautiful graphics, fun gameplay) and weaknesses (unprecise game mechanics, dull music, bad voice overs)Goblin Menace has the same strength (beautiful graphics, fun gameplay) and weaknesses (unprecise game mechanics, dull music, bad voice overs) as the original game.



    That said, GB is a pretty descent add-on, that did not disappoint me. They really added a lot new level themes, like the desert, an aegyptian temple, the belly of a sandworm - colorful and beautiful again. The levels are a bit more challenging - so be prepared.



    To anyone who liked Trine 2, I would strongly recommend this add-on.
