    Trine may not look like much - just another platform game in a pretty 3D engine, but it's actually a lot more than that. We take a closer look at one of the most enjoyable platform games we've played and see what makes Trine so special beyond the physics and multiple personalities.

    Played the demo last week (when I managed to get onto the Steam servers). Really enjoyed it.

    Yeah, I really liked the demo too... But agree with the comment on the price, It's $29.99USD here in Australia, which while not too expensive is still enough to keep me away for now, hopefully will be on sale sooner or later as things on Steam often are.

    I was recommened this by Joe's girlfriend the other day. As fun as I'm sure it is, it remains to be seen how I can convince my girlfriend to abandon her quest to kill as many zombies on Left 4 Dead as possible, and have a go on this.

    It really is a load of fun, and the compulsion to go back through it and find all the experience and hidden treasures (which upgrade your abilities through equippable items) is overwhelming.
    i recommend this to anyone, was wondering if it would get a review! :D

    Having played the demo when it appeared on Steam this review seems to be completely in line with what I thought about the game myself.

    It's an awesome little gem of a game, but overpriced for its content.
    I'll eagerly buy it when it comes down in price, the artwork and music are almost worth it already.

    I got the demo on Steam and love it, a very cool and visually beautiful game. I am considering buying it.

    Gave the demo a go after reading the review and loved it. 19.99 seems a bit steep, may have to wait for the price to go down a bit, but i'm going to buy it at some point.

    I grabbed the demo and rather liked the gameplay. What i didn't like is that you can completely foul up a level if one of your guys dies. some skeletons carried on killing my thief as I crossed a little chasm. so I couldn't get across it to kill em. I know the thief can bow n Arrow em to death, but the bow is a pain to use, it appears to fires lead arrows.
    It's a fun game, and i can live past the annoying quirks, but I agree on the remarks on it's price.

    haven't beat it yet but I think pretty close to the end.. you get upgrades dean- like the thief get a fire bow that uses mana, and the arrows don't drop like rocks- pretty cool too you can light up parts hitting torches.. finding the hidden exp bottles is what makes the game- anyone could just run through it.. once you get used to the controls you can pull off some pretty tricks

    the physics are really on with the push and pull, drop type things.. the landscapes are nice looking imo.. have to rate this game pretty high so far.. I bet at the end their will be a troll on a toilet and he says- how you like them apples! downside is, the voice acting isn't top notch but it's not bad either.. playing at 1080p I have to run maxed out at 2xaa 16xaf for perfect smooth gameplay- I dunno if that's because it uses physx, but probably, I would have liked to run least 4x but it starts dipping under 60fps.. granted I am running a pretty old driver

    think beat it today and try to get some screens..

    [edit]

    just finished it.. couple screens- some reason fraps wouldn't grab.. these are the only 2 that came out well with printscreen and a clipboard manager.. oh well the end level was alot of fun- you had to have skill to get up to the top =p

    recently purchased it myself, very fun little game (love playing as the thief) my only complaint is at certain points it really seems to spam you with undead. which gets really annoying (especially if you only have the wizard left ><)

    game is really fun! I love side-scrollers. You call it a 2D platformer though but it is very 3D though it is side scrolling.
