    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.

The original Trine was awesome, but Trine 2 managed to significantly improve what was already a fantastic game. The major improvements over the original in order of significance: (1) online co-op. Need I say more? (2) the ability to save mid-level (cannot stress enough how much I appreciate); (3) combat - while the mechanics are the same, enemies are much more challenging, compelling and aesthetically interesting. I enjoyed combat in the original, but repeatedly killing skeleton soldiers wasn't all that gratifying; (4) puzzles - after only a few levels I noted that the puzzles seemed slightly more challenging than those in the original. Perhaps this is a trade-off for the ability to save mid-level. Whatever the case, I found the overall difficulty to be about perfect. I also loved the new environmental additions, such as water that makes plants grow, etc. Great stuff.; (5) graphics/art design - the original Trine was a gorgeous game and yet the sequel is noticeably more visually stunning. Probably the single prettiest game I've ever played.

    I cannot recommend this game enough, particularly at the very low prices at which it can typically be had.

    Trine 2 blends elements of puzzle platforming with such finesse that there is no wonder why the series has so many entries to its name.Trine 2 blends elements of puzzle platforming with such finesse that there is no wonder why the series has so many entries to its name. Switching between the Wizard, Thief and Warrior each with their own diverse set of skills and abilities makes tackling each puzzle fresh. While it does seem like playing co-op would be the most fun, each puzzle usually has multiple solutions so even playing solo there is a sense of accomplishment to piecing together how to proceed. Levels move forward with good momentum and rarely overstay their welcome. The primary complaint for this reviewer is related to the leveling system. Later levels clearly favor or require some skills to be leveled but what would be most helpful is not always clear; further, some skills are not well explained within the skills tree only revealing their full potential after being purchased. While this is not the end of the world, it does mean that a careful and methodical approach to each level is best to ensure enough potions (experience) are found to dump into multiple skills. The story is nothing to write home about but ultimately the joy of the game comes from swinging through the world, bashing the teeth out of goblins and levitating boulders into faces. If you are craving a platforming romp and have some friends to take along for the ride, we can recommend this diversion! Expand

Not only does the game look great, it's full ofThe first games graphics were amazing, but the sequel actually makes them look bad. Not only does the game look great, it's full of imaginative encounters that will leave you smiling. My only issues with the game is the "endurance" areas where enemies attack in waves and you have to be very defensive to make it through, and also some of the physics puzzle. You can work out the solution to a problem, but the physics to accomplish the solution are so fiddly it can bring the entire game to a screeching halt for an extended duration. Expand
