Trine 2: Complete Story Review28th November 2016
This is the Trine 2: Complete Story review is a beautiful game. It’s colourful bright and is full of character. Trine 2: Complete story includes the full package, the main game and the Goblin Menace expansion campaign and the unlockable Dwarven Caverns level to take complete your fairytale adventure.
What’s the Story?
In the game you play as three different characters, Amadeus the wizard, Zoya the thief, and Pontius the knight, each has their own unique abilities that you will need to use throughout the game.
Trine 2 takes place years after the events of the first game. The kingdom has been restored and our main protagonists are going about their business. Amadeus is sleeping after a busy day trying to master a spell when a bright light shines on him and asks him to follow it. The light reveals itself as the trine and announces to the group that their help is needed once more and the Trine them whisks them off to start their adventure.
Trine 2: Complete Story Review – Graphics
The graphics in the games are absolutely beautiful, the colours are vivid and bright creating an enchanting atmosphere throughout the game. With 3D support, you can really immerse yourself in the fairytale world. The lighting in the game is nothing short of stunning adding extra depth to the levels. The detail of the environments just makes the game ooze with atmosphere.
Trine 2: Complete Story Review – Gameplay
The gameplay in Trine 2 is a mixture of side-scrolling action platforming and physics-based puzzles. By using each of the three characters abilities and skills, you will work your way through the lengthy adventure revealing more of the story. The Trine has bound the three characters together into one common entity, and therefore the player controls only one character which can be switched to the other two at any time.
Amadeus can use magic to move certain objects in the levels. He can also create boxes and planks to be used to get around particular puzzles. Zoya can shoot objects with her arrows, and use her grappling hook to reach areas that may be unreachable by the other characters; and Pontius is strong in combat situations against enemies, can break walls, and deflect enemy projectiles with his shield.
The game supports up to three player co-op, where each player is forced to play as only 1 of the three characters making you all work together to complete each level.
At times you can feel a little stuck, scratching your head trying to figure out what it is that you need to do to progress within the level.
I enjoyed putting together this Trine 2: Complete Story review is an excellent game that is beautiful, fun and makes you think to get to the ultimate end game. If you have never played the first game it doesn’t matter. With the DLC included it’s worth your hard earned cash. Now go and get lost in an adventure.
