Yah it's pretty good. Probably the best looking side-scrolling platformer I've ever played. Lot's of puzzles and gameplay content, especially if you have the DLC. I played it with a keyboard/mouse and it worked well but most people say they prefer a controller, I think it's good regardless of how you choose to play.

The Linux port is great, runs at a solid 60 fps at max settings with not a hint of a stutter on my GTX960 (60fps on Linux only if you make an alteration to the .frozenbyte/Trine2/options.txt to set 30fps smoothing to false, the default is true. The developers should really change the default setting as it makes a world of difference).

REVIEW :
I have mixed feeling about this game. I love the first one, but this one... it's like the developer hates the players and just want to make our gameplay miserable. The thing that I hate most about Trine 2 level design are "slippery when wet". This slippery floor make it impossible to backtrack to get missed collectibles, you either have to restart from checkpoint or restart the level entirely (if you're playing hardcore mode). The collectibles are a lot more than the 1st game and some of them are in really hidden and challenging position, but the not so fluid control make it really frustrating to get them.

Other than that, like the 1st game, it has beautiful graphics and music. The story is mediocre, more like children story. Since it has multiplayer up to 3 players, I guess it's a good family game to play with your siblings or children (if you're a parent).

CONCLUSION :
Recommended on sale price.

In recent times I’ve hacked, slashed and sleazed my way through the witcher games, committed Orc genocide in Mordor, lost count of the space Nazis I butchered in Wolfenstein, sent many brave souls to their doom in Darkest Dungeon, sent thousands of goons home with broken limbs in Arkham, and given vile death with reckless abandon to both AI and other players in various Dark Souls… all this blood and guts does get tiresome after a while, and Trine 2 was just what I needed.

Aside from the janky combat parts, Trine 2 is an absolute stunner from start to finish. From the jaw dropping visuals and spell binding music through the many levels of physics puzzles and simple but not too simple platforming. I was constantly in love with this game and can’t get enough. It may be light-hearted and rather relaxing by modern standards, but here’s just something magical about Trine that I can’t put my finger on but can’t get enough of.

They don’t make many games like this anymore, and more’s the pity.

This is actually what the first Trine should have been! The game looks great, the monsters and the universe are well-designed, the puzzles are entertaining, the action is decent. The story is some ridiculous bull**** which is perfect because nobody plays platformers for the story. Athough I must add t that I would recommend this game only to someone insisting on playing a platfromer.

This must be the first game I've played(that I remember) that I've also finished on the same day I started it on(according to Steam, it took me 8 hrs to finish so that would have meant I sat next to my computer playing this game from beginning to finish for 8 hrs straight), story wise I think that might be a credits bugged becauyse it kept rolling or this game has a really long set of credits to go through...? Or it was suppose to happen and it's just a matter of how long it takes you to get bored by reading the repeated credits? hahahaha I was expecting for something at the end, like a reward for watching through the entire credits, maybe a bonus cut scene or something. All done on medium difficulty.

So the story continues from Trine 1 if you've played that, with the same three characters. I didn't really dwell too much into the story, more at having fun and trying to solve them puzzles....hahahaaa At least the puzzles here aren't as fustrating as the ones in Trine 1, or maybe it was because at times I had a coop random help me out rather me trying to solo it alone...? I don't know, I might try solo this to see if there was a difference in puzzle difficulty and length...when I can be bothered of ccourse...hahaha XP

Gameplay wise, is pretty similar to its prequel, though you have a slightly different system to upgrade your character's abilities from the first. For some reason, Trine 2 felt more fun to play than Trine 1, maybe I started off with mutliplayer coop(instead of soloing the campaign myself) and expected/hoped randoms to come drop by - which they did at times.

Graphics, yeash definitely an improvement over Trine 1 original, though there's an Enchanted version that pretty much puts it on par with this game.

My settings are as follows: 1920x1080 @ 144Hz, Anti-Aliasing @ Extremem so that apparently is FXAA + 4xSSAA and I also had V-sync on, so I don't have to worry about screen tearing. Graphics detail level is on Very High and I don't have anything to play this game on stereoscopic 3D mode so I leave it on default which is Automatic.

Whilst ingame, I've notice I've never actually got to 144fps mark which was a shame because it didn't make good use of my 144Hz monitor... it seems to be hovering around 60-ish(sometimes up to 70 and up to 100 duringthe non-ingame cut scenes; I believe it hasn't ever dipped below 60, ok maybe 58 or so, but it hasn't gone down any further than that), which is still good. Though, since one of my GTX 770s is practically offline(as nvidia disabled SLi for windows XP on geforce cards 600 and up - which I later found out AFTER I bought two of these bad boys for the purpose of SLi; but don't worry, my windows 7 boot will make up for it - yes it's a dual boot system, so it wasn't all for nothing! :P Actually, I believe, since this game uses PhysX, my 2nd 770 might be the dedicated PhysX card for this system so that means less load for the first card which is offloaded to the 2nd card and since the 2nds card is also the exact same 770, it should be a *perfect* match up)

But yeah, they look pretty.

Sound, I believe this game appears to be running surround sound(I was able to get sound from my rear right and left, my my side left and right don't appear to be working or I didn't hear anything from them because they're so soft, so this could be a 5.0 channel game or 4.0 channel game...), though I'm not sure if there's an LFE channel or if the center speaker is in use(I didn't actually test this, I just wanted to enjoy the game for what it is and not try to find something to criticize about).

Yeah, I had fun, so I guess I recommend this - definitely got my money's worth from this however much I paid for this - I don't actually remember how much I bought this for, apparently got it two years ago...or at least that's what it said before I launched the game today). I did play some multiplayer coop and yes it does work, but there's like hardly any one hosting, so best bet is to start your own and hope randoms come by and play.

Trine 2 is a side-scrolling action platform/puzzle game developed by Frozenbyte. And obviously, it is the sequel to Trine.
The game improves everything from the original by adding more fun to play abilities, such as Monster Levitation(grab and levitate monsters), Monster Prison(catch enemies in boxes) and Metal Magnetizing(conjured objects can be magnetized) for the Wizard, there is also Frost/Fire/Explosive Arrows, Stealth Movement and Low Gravity Field for the Thief, and lastly there is Frost Shield, Fire Sword, Hammer Throwing/Explosion, Charge and Magnetic Shield for the Knight.
Besides the gameplay improvements, the game is even move beautiful than the original Trine (#1, #2, #3) and the soundtrack is even more impressive.
For me, Trine 2 is the best of the series. It provides a lot of new great content that offers hours upon hours of fun in local/online co-op with friends or solo.
