Ratings and Reviews
This game will replace whatever you had in your heart as an all-time favorite. Quickly will Trine 2 become that game you always look upon with fondness and deep regard. Mushy stuff aside, the graphics are STELLAR! Even on my 2012 MacBook Air; no complaints. If you’re into puzzles, guess what? There’s multiple solutions to each one! You’re not stuck looking up BS strategy guides or googling for boss info. Nay, you ARE the strategy guide.
Don’t listen to the “controls don’t work” reviews, they just don’t know how to use a Mac yet (no offense intended). If you’re using a single button mouse, it will require some additional configuration within the game (as stated before). Although you’ll need to fiddle around a bit to set up what works for you, it’s a million times worth it. You will never have a bad thing to say about Trine 2. Trust me, I’ve been searching for a game like this for almost 15 years now. Some have come close, but this is the total package.
It’s inexpensive, the content is robust, the length is adequate, and the graphics are stellar. What more do you want in a game?! Buy it. Buy it now. Stop reading this and go click the green button up there. You’ll be happy you did.
Worth every penny
Things I like about this game include the completely gorgeous and atmospheric graphics, the ability to switch among three characters who have different abilities and can attain different upgrades, the puzzles that are just challenging enough but not so hard that I'm always having to check a walkthrough to get to next stage. I really like that the same puzzle can often be solved in more than one way, depending on which abilities you prefer to use.
NOTE: I noticed one review was unable to get the controls to work. You can fix this by reconfiguring the keyboard controls so that when you press the left-hand command key (without clicking mouse) , you get the same thing as a right-click or whatever the default is. (Some Mac users only have a one-click mouse like me). You CAN change it, although altering the settings is not the most intuitive process.
It is sometimes difficult to execute complex sequences of movements with the keyboard, however. I did get the hang of it, but some players might want to completely change the keyboard command settings so they aren't playing "Twister" on the keyboard.
The only thing I didn't like about Trine 2 is this difficulty in doing things like rapidly switching directions mid jump or perfectly timed jumps to get past certain puzzles. Fortunately, there is often a different way to solve the puzzle, so be creative!
Fantastic Graphics and Gameplay
I haven’t completed the game yet, but I absolutely love it. I bought it for just a few dollars, and it was definitely worth it (I’ve been playing it instead of WAY more expensive video games). The graphics stand out above any other game, and are incredibly detailed and beautiful. You can tell that a lot of time and effort went in to prefecting the visuals and the way that they interact with the characters and their abilities. Which leads me to the point that the puzzle solving in this game is amazing. It’s set up in a way that most puzzles can be solved in a myriad of different ways because you are actually interacting with the environment rather than trying to guess the one path that the programmers wanted you to take. It’s fantastic and I would reccoment it to everyone!! :D
