When you first look at a game like Trine 2, what you will remember the most will be that side- scrolling nostalgia that most of us enjoyed from previous generations. Rarely do we get to see a game that looks this good and has such a fun and enjoyable gameplay.
Trine 2 is a puzzle/platform game where players get to use the skills of three characters: Amadeus the wizard, Zoya the thief, and Pontius the knight. In the single player story, these three characters are bound together as the Mystical “Trine” has made them into one common entity.
There is a great storyline, but we would prefer not to spoil it for you as it is really a good game to play. Gamers that are into wizards and fantasy based games will probably enjoy it the most. As you probably know, Trine 2 is the sequel to Trine, which came out in 2009. Both of these games are awesome, but with Trine 2 you can tell that the good people over at Frozenbyte worked hard at making it better.
The Characters & Single Player
As mentioned earlier, Trine 2 has three different characters that bring in an experience that is hard to find in gaming. The first character, Amadeus, he is the Wizard and he has the ability to move objects around and that power lets him facilitate the progress of the story. Unfortunately Amadeus does not fight and in certain situations online and offline, he is vulnerable to goblins that sometimes appear.
Zoya is known as the thief, but she calls it “being an entrepreneur”. She’s really the most fun to play with as she has a bow and arrow that can be quite useful in certain situations. Zoya also has the ability to move around quickly and that lets her escape certain times a lot faster than Amadeus and Pointius.
Pontius is the knight and he will remind you of Kratos from God of War 3. He defends the other two characters from goblins that attack you through the game. Pontius also can destroy certain walls and that makes him the most important of the three. In addition to all that cool stuff, Pontius can cover himself quite well.
A feature that makes this game more enjoyable is the multi-player. It was really fun to play it because you can connect to a game and start playing right away. In the online gameplay you can join other players and that makes it so that 3 people can play at the same time.
Trine 2 has a real good checkpoint system and what’s really nice about it is that if you die and spawn back you will notice that the health of the three characters comes back.
This is the part in which we point out the things that we didn’t like about the game. In this case with Trine 2 it is very difficult to criticize as it was nearly perfect. If there is a mistake in the game, let us assure you that is hard to find.
In conclusion, we recommend this game as it was really enjoyable to play. When a game is this fun and has a good replay value, it deserves a 9 out of 10.
