    Alone or with friends, Trine 2 is simply one of the best PC games you can play this year. You can check out the demo on Steam if you need further convincing because words and screenshots simply don't do this game justice. Just make sure you experience the magical of Trine 2. It is an unforgettable adventure that will keep you glued to your PC for days and weeks to come.

    On the whole, the creators of Trine took the safe route in crafting Trine 2. They strayed little from their original concept, resulting in a game that is equally as enjoyable as the first.

    Trine 2 is a genuinely lovable game, and one that I can safely and heartily recommend to nearly everyone.

    It's a step forward in every direction from its predecessor. If you love it the first time around, you have no reason to miss this one.

    The short length of the campaign and a few overly challenging puzzles are minor blemishes in an overall entertaining and worthwhile experience. Fans of the side-scrolling and platform genres need not look elsewhere, Trine 2 offers a wealth of truly innovative puzzles that are a welcome getaway from the current market of repeated genre titles.

    In the end, while the core gameplay remains wholly unchanged from the original (not to mention that expert players can still cheese their way through most areas by abusing the wizard's crate-creating spells), the stunning visual details and effects do more to enhance the already-robust mechanics then one might expect.

    Trine 2 is a fantasy platforming game that is the most fun in cooperation. It's short, but the design and the animations are extraordinary. One of the most beautiful games this year.

    I simply wouldn't change anything on this game.

    Graphic is top-notch, sound effects are nice and music is awesome. Graphic and music together create on the player a relaxing magic world feeling that kills any stress (also because puzzles are not hard if done with all 3 characters).
    I loved the irony of the dialogues between the 3 characters that more than once made me literally roll on floor laughing.

    Now, the gameplay part. The game is quite easy BUT there are challenges (such as achievements) so that even if the puzzles are easy, they "suggest" what to do to make them harder.

    To sum things up, this is one of the best games I ever played (works on linux too) and I enjoyed every hour I spent on this. I strongly suggest you to buy it.

The storytelling is still lighthearted and gorgeous, just like the 3 characters. The graphics are amazing, even better than in the good looking first Trine. More variety in the puzzles and even in the landscape make this game one of the best experiences I had this year. And I've still got to play the cooperative mode. Expand

    Amazing graphics, perfect controls, improved physics puzzles and finally online co-op multiplayer. It is even better then the first TrineAmazing graphics, perfect controls, improved physics puzzles and finally online co-op multiplayer. It is even better then the first Trine which was excellent. I miss inventory from original a little. This little cutie and good developer support is really worth more then release price. Expand

Solid game play, music and tight controls make it a blast to play with friends, like the first one except better because now you can play online! Also hey, some gorgeous graphics here. For only $15 how could I not give this a 10 when it provides so much? An instant classic, like Bastion, you need this in your collection. Expand

I just started and found the structure, the visuals, gameplay and audio to be very entertaining and unique. This is the genre of 2d/2.5d that I sorely missed in the 90's and early 2000's. When devs should of been mastering this genre instead of focusing on 3d models due to the incompetent hardware the time; which was incapable of the feats it can perform now. It is a shame that for a decade we could of really enjoyed gaming with breathtaking software like this. Trine and others like it show to us how a 2d/2.5d game can shine. While I applaud and welcome games like trine it seems so late and out of place that it is hard to validate it as a worthy purchase other than for a few dollars. This too is a shame....time takes it toll on all things and I feel sadly that while I will play trine and enjoy it, I will not truthfully enjoy it as much as I once would of.

    Overall a great job, but a lil too late for our current gaming diet and staple. I give it an 8 out of 10 due to it's outdated style.
