    Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is a worthy successor to the first two games in the series. The addition of 3D environments, while a bit tricky at first, ends up enhancing the experience. There are still a few quirks, such as camera angles or some complex platforming sequences, but overall it's still a blast to play through the new title, both for veterans as well as newcomers.

    Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power makes a good long story short. It even ends to a cliff-hanger which isn’t nice. [Sept 2015]
  3. You will definitely love Trine 3's great art style, impressive puzzles and pretty music list. But sad fact: everything will end in a few hours.

    With a bit more time, this could have been a great game. But now it's just a hint of what could have been.

    While the story may be inane, and the lack of even cartoon logic behind character action may be at fault, it’s an inane story told very well.

    Trine 3 offers an equally enjoyable gaming experience as both previous two installments, particularly in coop mode. Unfortunately, it suffers of the technical errors, lack of content and rather unnecessary implementation of 3D environment.

    Trine 3 is an incomplete mess that feels like the game’s creators just ran out of time (despite four months in Steam Early Access). The graphics, art style, and landscapes are stunning, but aren’t enough to make Trine 3 a game worth your time.

Big focus is still on puzzle solving and using different platforms to move forward. Graphics and soundtrack are just absolutely stellar. Expand

    Trine has returned in 3D!

    The latest chapter of the Trine series, surprised all of us with it's new more advanced 3D world, allowing more ways to interact with the environment, to find more secrets, and solve new types of puzzles!
    Whether playing alone or with friends, the game is the perfect way to fill the gaps in your spare time, giving extreme joy while playing.
    The game is a lot of fun to play through, the puzzles are not as hard as in the previous games, making it more opened to those who don't like solving puzzles a lot, but still full of excitement and funny moments.
    The only thing the game lacks are boss battles. All previous titles of the series contained a big amount of boss fights. In this adventure the boss fight is only one, and it is found at the end of the game!
    Unfortunately the game is not complete, and where it ends is only the beginning what our Heroes have to do and face, but the game is as long as any other Trine adventure, giving to players a lot of playtime, enough puzzles and collectibles with enhanced visuals and great storyline, something Trine never lacks!

It's not bad and the fact that it's no longer a 2D-only game makes it more enticing, but it lacks the polished story of the previous 2 games and it ends abruptly when it actually starts getting interesting. My main complaint is the shortness of the story though, rather than the inconsistent aspect of it. The narrator seems to try too much to deliver, whereas the game mechanics need some serious work (in certain parts of the game) in order to provide the PC gamer with a pleasant experience. I'd have very much appreciated if side-quests were skipped in detriment of a longer story and less bugs. The same ones I've seen in the first game are still present in this 3rd iteration, which makes things hard to swallow. And the lack of character progression (which really made Trine 2 fun, I'm now playing it on PS4 in co-op) is a depressing aspect to say the least, more like inexcusable. There are indeed some novel capabilities added to each of the 3 (shield floating or air-stomping for Pontius, rope tying for Zoya, smashing cubes in enemies heads for Amadeus) but those should really have been added bonus *on top* of the existing character progression rather than fixed features from the get-go. In all, I gave it a 7 because I'm a fan of the series and really enjoyed the 2D-to-3D evolution, but it's actually around 6. It mattered also that I bought it for a discount on Steam, so all in all, a good 10EUR spent. But that's all I can recommend as price for Trin3. Expand

    I had fun with the game, but it felt unfinished. The visuals and music is beautiful as always in Trine. The transition to a semi-3D world feltI had fun with the game, but it felt unfinished. The visuals and music is beautiful as always in Trine. The transition to a semi-3D world felt a bit clunky at first, due to the fact that places where you could go kinda blended in with Trine's artistic surroundings, but I got used to that. Some of the gameplay mechanics from previous games are gone like Pontius's hammer, watering plants or summoning different sized boxes. I finished the game in 3 days (with all triangles collected), but I could probably do that in 1 day if I really wanted to. The ending for a second made me hope I'll get transported to a new map and I finished just a chapter of the game, but nope... Trine 3 ends with unsolved problem that will probably be continued in a DLC. Expand

    If you can't make platformer for 5mil there's something wrong with the way you use money. Shouldn't have tried aaa and stay in indie. GamesIf you can't make platformer for 5mil there's something wrong with the way you use money. Shouldn't have tried aaa and stay in indie. Games ends just when it gets started and should not have been released as it's worse than some early access without even being one. One fix is that they put it in early access and finish it, then il give 8 at least depending on rest of the game. Expand
