Trine – Demo Impressions (PS3)

Trine is the story of three characters; a wizard, a thief and a knight – all of whom come into contact with a magical stone that sees them transported to another land.

You control all three characters (not at the same time), using each of their abilities to overcome the obstacles and puzzles you face.

You flick between characters using the shoulder buttons but there is also the option for co-operative play if you want to involve a friend.

The game is a 2D side scroller affair and the graphics are superb. The world is vibrant and alive, although I only faced one type of enemy (skeleton) during the demo.

You’ll need to use your brain for this game as often the puzzle may require you to actually create what’s needed to solve it – for example the wizard’s ability to conjure a box from thin air comes in handy at times.

For me though, as great as the game looked, it’s not a title I would play.

The game itself controls quite well, although I occasionally found the special moves a little cumbersome, and there is certainly nothing wrong with it.

Recommended if you like 2D puzzle based side scrollers – but for me personally it’s a no.
