Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Challenging and fun puzzle platforming that uses an interesting character switch mechanic
Each playable character has their own abilities and features that you must use in order to solve puzzles, platform, and battle to beat each level. You will be switching back and forth throughout the game in order to progress, which can be fun when trying to figure out how to utilize each characters skills.
Pro Appealing graphics reminiscent of vibrant cartoons shows off a very individualistic design
The graphics are 3d rendered with vibrant colors. They utilize pleasing cartoon like graphics, which give a real sense of the fantasy world they are meant to illustrate. Everything about the design of the characters and world stand out as highly polished and breathtaking.
Pro Fun local co-op that lends itelf well to the chracter switch design of the gameplay
Trine has support for up to 3 player local co-op, which works very well with the way the mechanics of the game demand use of each character throughout each stage.
Con Co-op not as good as single player
Though there is support for local co-op, the game feels as though it works best as a single player title. This can be limiting to those that are only going to play single player.
Con Rather little variation in combat/gameplay
After you've fought your first fight, you've practically seen them all. There are no real boss fights like in Trine 2, the only distinction is made between shooty-wights and stabby-wights.
