    The PS4 version touts some nice presentation boosts while maintaining the excellent gameplay that you would expect from Trine 2. If you don't currently on Trine 2, this version is a great one to get.

    Trine 2: Complete Story is still a brilliantly charming game, and the PS4 version is the definitive iteration by some distance, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that Frozenbyte need to move on now and work on number 3 – or something new altogether.

    Trine 2: Complete Story is a grand embellishment of one of the most charming and accomplished adventure platformers in recent years. Bolstered by a wealth of additional content, multiplayer modes and the gorgeous 1080p/60 fps veneer that PlayStation 4 allows, this should be the next game to find a home on your PlayStation 4.

    There’s a strong variety of unique puzzles, and with the gorgeous world that can be taken-in, Trine 2 ends up being a luscious adventure. If you haven’t had the chance to pick it up on the many platforms it has been released on, then now is the best time.

    Overall, Trine 2: The Complete Story is a solid puzzle platform game which offers stunning vistas and co op play to boot.

    Minor control updates and all the DLC included. Looks gorgeous, still plays great. [February 2014, p83]

    Wow. Just wow. I downloaded this for free two nights ago on my PS4 as part of June's free PS Plus games, having never even heard of TrineWow. Just wow. I downloaded this for free two nights ago on my PS4 as part of June's free PS Plus games, having never even heard of Trine before. It looked interesting so I figured that I would give it a try. In my 30+ years of gaming, this is hands down the most beautifully stunning game that I have ever seen. The lighting and visuals are absolutely breathtaking. It looks like you are looking at some kind of wonderful live painting. The colors are so unique and vivid that it just comes to life off of your screen. And the amount of sheer detail in these environments is just mindblowing. I am constantly stopping just to look around and try to see all that there is to see. Even though it's a 2d side scroller, it must be rendered in 3d. The depth of the backgrounds is incredible and there is constantly something going on in the background at all times. I found myself always wanting to journey INTO the scenes, instead of just ACROSS the scenes because of the amount of depth and detail in the background. You honestly cannot see everything because there is just too much. My wife, who cares 0.0% about video games, was sitting in the room with me last night while I was playing. Now she has seen bits and pieces of every game that I have played in the past 10 years just from walking through the room while I have been playing and glancing at the screen. But she has never stopped to look at a game ever. Last night she was like "Oh my god, what is this game? It's absolutely beautiful!" And I have not even touched on the gameplay yet which is addictively fun. The character models look amazing, the physics are top notch, and the music draws you right into it's fantasy world. If you are even remotely considering this game, do not wait for one more second... get Trine right now. I cannot wait to get home tonight to play it again. Expand

    A 10/10 score is virtually impossible really, but Trine 2 on the PS4 is so good that a 9 is simply not enough!

    Without writing a huge review, here are the simple facts:

    Beautiful graphics - if you have a good 3D TV then Trine 2 on PS4 is the best 3D experience to date. I've had the fancy 3D Vision on my PC and Just Cause 2 and Metro 2033 really impressed me. Trine 2 in 3D on PS4 surpasses it. Truly amazing.

    Sublime game play - switching between characters is easy and fluid. Each have their own unique abilities to get you through the picturesque levels. Nice little puzzle elements, simple enough combat, just fun.

    The audio isn't great, but I'm not going to remove points because of it. It's nicely adequate.

    The price makes Trine 2 a bargain. I'd happily pay £30. In fact, I've enjoyed it far more than games that have cost me £50.

    Get it.

    Now.

    Nice game, very playable! Three separate characters all with different abilities and you can flick between them as and when you want or needNice game, very playable! Three separate characters all with different abilities and you can flick between them as and when you want or need to. It looks great too. Very nice visuals and intriguing puzzles, mixed with fighting enemies. A cracking little game and for 11.50 on the PSN Store, this is an absolute bargain. Expand

Trine 1 was a masterpiece when it comes to the graphics and fun gameplay. What Trine 2 has? Well for sure the best graphics in the series, but the gameplay got dumbed down a lot. First, the secrets (chests) are completely pointless. In Trine 1 there were artifacts hidden in chests that gave us certain advantages in the game... here these chests are filled with SH**TY poems or lame concept arts... what a waste. The bigger waste is removal of the artifacts. You know what else is gone? The great triangle that the sorcerer could spawn in Trine 1... yep it's gone. Instead Zoya got a blue arrow that creates a bubble that slows everything. And this is actually the core of the game... almost all of the puzzles are solved with the blue arrow and it's a real shame, because the first part had some diversity, but nope it's the blue arrow here! Also, because Trine 1 was not a long game, the developers decided to make Trine 2 harder... so it would take us longer to beat it, which is a disgrace. I finished Trine 1 on hard with hardcore mode on and had great time, but here this kind of difficulty is a bloody mess... better play it on normal. And that's mostly all the negative things I can say about Trine 2. The graphics are amazing, level designs are awesome, story is interesting.. some puzzles are really good, while other ones are a joke. It's a good game, but compared to Trine: Enchanted Edition it falls flat. Trine 2 is 8 out of 10. Now, because we're talking about "Complete Story", I have to review the dlc "Goblin Nickelback" too. Well the dlc is awful. Don't get me wrong, the level designs and ideas are amazing. The dlc has one of the best level designs in the series... but... BUT there's a BIG BUT... the puzzles are a joke. While some are fun, the majority is tedious and just dumb. This DLC gave me real physical pain, while going through it. I can't stand it, which is a shame. I know that some people will want to crucify me for this, but that's just how it is. I wish this dlc didn't exist. Also what's with the goblins in trine 2 and the dlc? There are mostly just goblins and no one else as antagonists... Trine 1 had lots of different enemies and here there are just goblins, some spiders rarely and some plants, that are hungry like Charlie Sheen is hungry for drugs. Either way this package is 7/10. Better play the first one. Still, Pickens approves! Expand

    Can understand all the great reviews for this game. It is a standard side scrolling platform with a combat system that doesn't entertain.Can understand all the great reviews for this game. It is a standard side scrolling platform with a combat system that doesn't entertain.

    I've only played it in single player but can't see how it would improve by going coop.

    The controls are not bad, but ain't great either and the story is just a standard one.

    The visuals and songs are nice, but this game failed to entertain me.
