However, don't let my opening statement regarding 3rd person scroller, put you off; this is an interesting and addictive game. In fact it won the 'Best Downloadable game' by 'Gamespot's' 3E Editor's Choice Awards.
Three characters (a wizard, a thief and a knight) are physically joined into one person by a magic object called the 'Trine'. They must travel (all the while using their collective skills of conjuring, jumping, swinging and fighting), an evil-laden labyrinth to escape, and thus return themselves into their individual persons.
Each character has different 'skills'. The wizard...object creation and levitation; the thief...a powerful bow and grappling-hook device; and the knight...a fighters sword and shield AND a hammer. Only one character can be activated at a time so you must determine which 'skills' are needed to accomplish the task/puzzle before you.
As you proceed along you will find 'treasure chests' with upgrades and bonuses; there are also experience points gained while fighting, with which you can upgrade your characters abilities and skills. And this is were the game really becomes interesting, because sometime these chests and bonus vials are just visible at screens edge, so you need to figure out a way to get to these precious objects, in order to obtain the bonuses contained within.
The only annoying thing about this game is the game-save method; games are automatically saved at game-generated checkpoints; if all characters die, you restart back at the last checkpoint reached...Read more ›
While I am AGAINST DRM (the idea of it, and the principal) - this is the 1st time I have had a major issue with it. I bought this game (TRINE) at BEST BUY (the store... not online). I physically went down to the store, and purchased the actual game. I did NOT buy the digital download, or order it online.
I have an external USB DVD RAM Drive, and no CD / DVD drives inside my PC. I WAS able to install the game from the DVD, however, my drive was making all kinds of crazy noises (I swear, I thought my drive would take off and fly out of the room under it's own power - it sounded like a freakin' helicopter LOL), and the install went VERY SLOWLY, for a game of this type.
After installing, I tried to play the game and immediately got an error from the SecuROM CD verification check. It told me to insert the ORIGINAL CD, not a backup. Well, I never made a backup, and only used the original. I went to their website and checked for patches. Updating to the latest patch at the time (1.05) did not help either. I tried to register on their forums to get help, but after waiting for hours and hours, I never got the e-mail verification email from them (it's been 24 hours already - at the time of this review).
The publisher's site had some generic (BS / non-helpful) information about the error, and I didn't get anywhere with their "support" either.
So after a lot of frustration I decided finally to return the game the very next day.Read more ›
TRINE is an excellent physics action/arcade game. You control three interchangeable characters (a thief, a wizard and a warrior). Each has his/hers special abilities, from shooting griping hooks to levitating objects and smashing things up. At any point, you can select which one suits you best. Obstacles have to be turned, balanced, jumped over or simply smashed. Enemies have to be wiped out. And vials have to be discovered and collected before reaching the goal.
Between levels there are checkpoints but, annoyingly, no regular saving is possible (hence the star withheld). If a character dies you are only left with the other(s) to finish off the level. If it is impossible without the missing character(s)' abilities you can always revert to the last checkpoint.
The graphics are just beautiful! If you have seen the DIABLO III trailers, they are comparable. PhysX is required however, so nVIDIA gamers rejoice.
The sounds and voices are nicely done and clearly add to the enjoyment of the game.
Overall, I have been playing this gem for almost a week now and apart for the checkpoint saves I can only say good things about it.
TRINE comes with STEAM (in fact it was released first on that platform) and you will need to be online to post accomplishments - but there are neither limits on the number of installations nor any RootKits of the likes of SecuROM.

Purchased this to get above the $25.00 free shipping. Were I not an avid gamer I may have liked it, but it was not up to the quality I like.Published on March 11, 2013 by Robert E. White
